SSN: How did you discover Supernatural?
Heidi: People on my flist on LJ had been squee-ing about it for over a year by the time I finally watched it. I’d picked up the basics of the plot – two brothers, one car, spooky things – but I wasn’t sure who was who. Then I read a Supernatural/Torchwood crossover and I liked the boys, so I watched an episode – Playthings. I’ve been completely hooked ever since.
SSN: What is your favorite Supernatural episode and why?
Heidi: I love Playthings because it’s the first one I ever saw – and it’s great to use in vidding because the visuals are amazing. I couldn’t choose just one as a favorite, because I feel like All Hell Breaks Loose is one episode – back in the 70s or 80s it would’ve been.
SSN: What is your least favorite Supernatural episode and why?
Heidi: I really do not like Phantom Traveler, even though there are some fantastic moments with the boys. I have issues with airplanes and watching it makes me focus on that instead of the plot.
SSN: Who is your favorite villain?
Heidi: I actually liked Bela! But the YED – especially in Back to the Future – really fascinates me.
SSN: How do you promote Supernatural?
Heidi: I squee about it on Twitter – which goes to my Facebook as well – and on LJ. And I have been known to get S1 and S2 sets on dvds for people when they’re under $20 in the stores. And reviews on iTunes are always good. When people wander by and see that there’s hundreds of five-star reviews for a show, some of them may take a peek. And I convinced the guy who runs my husband’s comic book store to put the comics on prominent racks.
SSN: Do you prefer one of the boys over the other? If so, which one?
Heidi: Oh no! I really adore them both to the same degree, although in different ways.
SSN: If you could be in ANY Supernatural episode, which would you choose and why?
Heidi: Is there an “everybody lives” episode? No? Then I’ll choose the one where the largest number of people on screen survives. Would that be Bugs or I Know What You Did Last Summer?
SSN: What one character would you love to see back on Supernatural?
Heidi: Since the question asks for one, I can’t say the Ghostfacers – so I’ll just say ANDY! More Andy is always good.
SSN: How do you want the show to end?
Heidi: I want the American Gods ending, where the boys slowly but surely become something perpetual and eternal, always protecting the world, saving people, hunting things. If we can’t get that, then something that can lead into a feature film in 4-5 years would be terrific…
SSN: What other TV shows do you watch religiously?
Heidi: Doctor Who (although I am not sure whether I will watch consistently with the Eleventh Doctor), White Collar, Leverage and yes, I still watch Heroes.
