I'm a big fan of Supernatural and have been since the start, but over time (and mostly of late) they've gotten rid of their older secondary characters and replaced them with progressively younger and 'quirkier' characters. Gone are Winchester senior, Bobby and Rufus and many other old mediums and hunters to be replaced by Charlie (urgh!), Garth (he's only alright), Kevin (he's moving the plot at least) and the hunter teenager from the last week (nope, not for me)... and it goes on. The only older persons apart from the boys are Crowley, Cas and Naomi (because now Benny's gone). I can't say I'm that impressed. It's become more a roll-call for supposedly hip, young smart things that you'd really rather just got bit on by a vamp. I liked it when Dean was the sassy smarty and Sam his mostly straight man... they were the exception, not everyone else like them.
So am I alone in missing some older characters and disliking many of the young ones (even though I'm in the 'young' age group)?
And I so hate Charlie.
