Mr Jack is on to something.

Generally the writers that were core start to leave, or they run out of ideas.

You could see that the Star Trek producers were probably correct to cap off the series at 7 years, and they could have probably milked it further with TNG and Deep Space and Voyager, but they would have jumped the shark into bad scripts and mundane stories. Aside from that the over-over-over abundance of supernatural / vampire what have you series is really bizarre to me. The rabid interest that supposedly rational people have in spook shows is strange. Science fiction makes more sense, supernatural stories > not so much.

I disagree, considering that most science fiction programming has very little do with science or "rational" exploration of ideas or concepts and much more to do with space opera stuff and assorted goofiness. In the end, it comes down to investment in characters and good stories. I watch Supernatural because I enjoy spending time with those characters, not because I particularly care about the show's iteration of supernatural creatures, just as I watch Orphan Black because I'm having fun with it, and not because I'm sold on the science behind the shenanigans.

Friends" ran 11 seasons and the final season was as funny as the first.

Which was not at all.

I love the show, but I think they should wrap it up soon. The last couple of seasons (post-Leviathans) haven't been that good. There's something to be said for a nice conclusion to a series you love too, like they did with BATTLESTAR GALACTICA a few years ago.

Its humor, sadly, eluded you.

For many, many others - me included - it's as fresh and funny and vital in re-runs as it was when it was new.

Did you really just post in this thread to offer a counter-argument to a post from nearly a year ago which has nothing to do with Supernatural to begin with?
