NIB readers who are Supernatural viewers, I need your help!

There’s quite a bit of rumbling in the blog-o-sphere about the show — articulated frustrations, disappointments, threats to stop watching.  The prolific negativity makes me wonder if perhaps I’m watching a different show.  I have some ideas, including thoughts on the difficulties of the long arc in television narratives, but first I’m desperate to know what you all think.

What are your thoughts on this season so far?  Are you feeling frustrated?  Apathetic?  Uninterested?  And if so, why?  And at what point did you feel a shift in your viewing satisfaction?  Was there a specific episode?  A piece of character development or lack thereof?

Thanks in advance!  I’m looking forward to hearing your thoughts!
