The Crossover

And so they went and did it – a Supernatural/Scooby Doo crossover.

And honestly, it was a hoot watching it.

Now, a few days back, I caught some nerds (or so they claim to be) that were basically doing that scene from Jaws…


… only instead of comparing scars, they were comparing dates, to decide which one of them had stopped watching Supernatural first.
Because that’s the nice thing about the nerds – if a series gets canceled they get angry, but if a series carries on they get blasé. Because they own it, you see, and they would have made a few better choices than the authors and the producers.
Or something.

Getting old I find it difficult to describe myself as “a fan” of TV shows – I no longer have the time to follow a series regularly, I don’t even have a TV anymore.
So I’m not a fan of Supernatural, if being a fan means watching repeatedly every episode and knowing no end of details and talking a lot about it. I like catching an episode now and again. I like the characters, and the way the stories are handled.
But I have been a fan of Scooby Doo.
I was six at the time, and that was certainly my favorite cartoon show. It was cool, and full of ghosts and weird places, and I liked the characters and there was this thing that there is no supernatural, only crooked adults in a rubber mask.
So yes, I was waiting eagerly for the crossover.


And I particularly appreciated that the producers decided to cross over Supernatural with my Scooby Doo – the one from the sixties, with the silly pop song played over the scene where all the characters run around pursued by this week’s spook.
A lot of nice touches were slipped in the plot, from Dean hitting on Daphne (that doesn’t get it, because she’s a cartoon, right?), to Velma finally getting to Sam (because she’s a cartoon, but we always knew she was the hot one, right?)


And then a lot of other silly stuff that really worked, and gave me forty minutes of fun, while the haunting was all right, with a few nice twists, and the real bad guy was obvious from the start, because… well, it’s a cartoon, right?

One could even go all meta-like and point out that the Supernatural/Scooby Doo crossover actually addresses a huge worldbuilding/plot hole in the recent SD franchise incarnation, Scooby Doo! Mystery Incorporated (but we won’t get into that because we are not nerds, right?)
But yes, they do point a finger at that open sore.

I really feel a tad sad for those losers that stopped watching Supernatural after episode five or whatever, because they are too cool for the room. They missed an opportunity to relent a bit, or otherwise do a long post on Facebook about the many sins of Scooby Doo.
That they stopped watching before you did, because they are cooler. Or nerdier. Or both. Or whatever.
