In fact, if you feel that I forgot something, I totally encourage you to reblog with your own recommendations on episodes that first-timers should definitely get around to watching!

The Ten Types of Supernatural Episode:  an Illustrated Guide.

1.  The Generic:

This is the kind of episode fandom veterans fondly refer to as “Old School Supernatural.”  Features a 70s rock soundtrack, a classic (yet in hindsight, relatively nonthreatening) ghost or monster, comically bad special effects, and body horror.  Probably from season one. 

Examples:  “Wendigo,” “Bloody Mary,” “Bugs.”    

2.  The Classic:

Not to be confused with the Generic, the Classic is the kind of episode that everybody remembers and everybody loves.  It’s infinitely quotable, carefully toes the line between hilarious and absurd, and is still frequently blogged about even if it came out 7+ years ago.  Almost definitely features Gabriel. 

Examples:  “Tall Tales,” “Mystery Spot,” “Changing Channels.”

3.  The Life Changer:

Once you see this episode, you will never be the same.  Whether it introduces a beloved character, kills them, or raises them from the dead, the Life Changer is the episode that either sends you into a downward spiral of unhealthy obsession, or merely accelerates it.

Examples:  “Lazarus Rising,” “Abandon All Hope,” “Lucifer Rising.”

4.  The Black Comedy:

Though much of Supernatural revolves around a unique cocktail of horror and humor, the Black Comedy is almost impossible to miss.  From famine-induced cannibalism, to a would-be antichrist, to a killer pagan Santa Clause, the humor of these episodes is darker than Batman’s worst nightmares and probably at least twice as depressing, yet manages to be oddly magical all the same.

Examples:  “Yellow Fever,” “My Bloody Valentine,” “A Very Supernatural Christmas.”

5.  The Crack Fic: 

These are the episodes whose only real purpose is to make you wonder if Supernatural is some kind of elaborate fever dream.  Neither advance the plot nor provide much further insight into its characters, but still entertaining in terms of pure absurdity. 

Examples:  “Man’s Best Friend with Benefits,” “It’s a Dog Dean Afternoon,” most of season seven.  

6.  The WELL-WRITTEN Crack Fic:

Despite having the same brand surreal absurdity of the Crack Fic, the WELL-WRITTEN Crack Fic not only serves to further character development, but will also tug at your heartstrings, make you laugh, and very likely make you cry. 

Examples:  “Monster Movie,” “Sam, Interrupted,” “Hunteri Heroici.”

7.  The Meta Fiction: 

Some shows break the fourth wall, but this one comes at it with a sledgehammer.  From directly addressing the fandom and its terminology to the show itself, the Meta Fiction episode is usually surprisingly enjoyable and well-done, if you can get past the sheer mindfuck of it.

Examples:  “Fanfiction,” “The French Mistake,” “Don’t Call me Shurley.” 

8.  The Tearjerker: 

This one specializes in one thing and one thing only, and that is emotionally destroying you.  May disguise itself as other kinds of episodes, like the Crack Fic and the Meta Fiction, before swiftly and efficiently moving in for the kill.

Examples:  “the Rapture,” “After School Special,” “the Man Who Would be King.”   

9.  The Tragedy Porn:

Do you enjoy watching your favorite characters suffer and die horribly for no particular reason?  No?  Well in that case, you picked the wrong show, my friend.  From the heart wrenching pain of Dean being forced to kick a newly-human Cas out of the bunker, to the soul-destroying injustices that were Kevin and Charlie, the Tragedy Porn is an episode that exists for no other reason than to make you want to crawl into a hole and die.

Examples:  “I’m No Angel,” “Dark Dynasty,” “Rock and a Hard Place.”

10.  The Grand Finale: 

The Tearjerker, made ten times worse with the addition of “Carry on my Wayward Son” and a cliffhanger ending.  Specializes in metaphorically ripping your heart out, making you sob like a pre-adolescent girl, and psyching you up for the next season, no matter how emotionally exhausted you may already be.

 Examples:  “No Rest For the Wicked,” “The Man Who Knew Too Much,” “Swan Song.”

How to Get People to Watch Gintama: A Question

So I’ve been watching and reading Gintama since 2008, which was one of the worst years of my life, but also the year I accepted Sorachi Hideaki into my heart as the One True Gorilla and was subsequently saved and promised an eternal afterlife as a cheese bun. Gintama made me laugh when nothing about my circumstances was funny, it made me cry about something else besides the crap that was happening around me, and it made me think about and question what the heck all this bullshit was about. For these reasons, among others (see: the OwWe arc), Gintama is very nearly my religion. I love it very much and this means I want everybody I’ve ever met to love it too.

Thus, the Brick Wall of most religions: getting people to believe in it.

If you didn’t jump on the Gintama bandwagon early enough, then 300 episodes (and counting, come on October 1st get here already) is daunting, even to hard-boiled, tough as nails, I-survived-every-Naruto-filler anime veterans. Some of them may not like comedy, some of them may not like shounen, and some of them may or may not be in possession of actual beating hearts. So how do you get these soulless robots people to watch? Clearly, taking up half of MAL’s top 10 spots isn’t enough to get ‘em excited. Glowing reviews from nearly everybody who’s ever seen it can’t get that engine turning. What’s left? Threats of bodily harm? I’ll do anything for Gintama I’ll kill a man I swear watCH ME

Not much else besides an episode guide.

Even as the die-hard fan cultist that I am, I can admit that the first 50ish episodes are hit and miss in their comedy. Like any fine wine or dry fart it takes a minute to mature and flourish. Gintama is Sorachi’s first long-running series afterall, and you can’t expect a gorilla to be immediately good at timing jokes or landing solid punchlines.

Unfortunately, most people who attempt Gintama (that I’ve talked to) give up shortly before Umibouzu is introduced, or even sooner in some cases. “It’s not as funny as everyone said it’d be” or “Where’s all the crazy plot everybody’s talking about” are the usual complaints.

I can’t say I understand what these people are talking about considering my bottomless maybe even blind devotion, but I can understand impatience to get to the good stuff. The first time I saw Jump Festa’s The Birth of Shiroyasha I ran every gamut of emotion between heart-pounding excitement and bitter, bitter disappointment because I was already like 120ish episodes in and I just wantED TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO GIN WHAT WAS HIS PAST GODDAAAAAAAAMMMMMMNNNNNNIIIIIITTTTTTTTTT and then I saw the Shogun Assassination arc and I wanted to go back and kick my curiosity straight in the nuts. 

But I digress.

Since 2008, I have gotten exactly two new converts, my friends Zendric and Mouse (real names replaced with internet handles) and with both of them I implemented an episode guide. I shaved off 25 episodes from the first ‘season’ (eps 1-49) only keeping the episodes that introduced new characters, explored those characters, or developed the overall plot, and I think this was much easier for them to digest. By the time we got to season 2, I only shaved off 20 episodes, and by season 3 they were Hooked.

Now, having caught up completely, they are fully In Love with all that Gintama has to offer. And now, they have nearly 50 episodes they haven’t seen, nearly 50 new ways to love all the characters, and nearly 50 more chances to laugh, all because of one fabulous anime.

So, as a Gintama fan, what do you think about this? Do you think it’s a good idea? Bad idea? Which episodes would you choose to watch? To cut?

And to those who haven’t seen Gintama but might want to, what do you think about this? Would you be more willing to put in the time if there was less you had to watch? Do you think it would lessen the experience to skip episodes? Improve the experience by being able to go back?

Thanks so much for reading my long ass rant! Now let’s discuss!

(PS I typed up an episode guide to the series a few months ago, and I would love to post it if people are interested! :)
