This is not a flimsy book, in my estimation. It has a sturdy cover and nice pages that would be forgiving of obsessive rifling through by a fond fan of the show. Many of the articles are short and sweet. I personally believe Baby deserves far more than four measly pages with scarcely any text. It's Baby, c'mon! If this is the Ultimate Guide, I will need Ultimate Baby. Thanks.
The book has some nice interviews that I haven't had time to sit down and read through yet. It has a short excerpt from "Family Don't End With Blood" that was written by Jim Beaver saying what a gift the love of SPN fans has been. Guides about the myriad of villains, demons, and angels that the show has had. Also, a complete ranking of the show's 300 episodes. Yes, you will likely disagree with them. Seriously, "The Girl With The Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo" is 158? *makes noise of rude disagreement*
"Swan Song" was number one, which I cannot argue with.
I am sure some Super SuperFans who have been to lots of conventions and collected lots of articles will say this is content they have seen before. For fans like me, who have never been to a convention, I think they will enjoy this fun book.
Also: Inside every episode? Ah, no. Superwiki this is not.
One thing on the wish list for the book: I would have loved interviews with some of the writers and the people who work on the set. Watching the DVD extras, you will always hear how important the teamwork is to make the dream work. It's a highlight for me, and I bet those would be some pretty awesome stories to share. I'm sure EW would likely tell me that it's the actors that sell the book and not the skilled workers who make the sets or the designers who play with flannel and glitter eyeshadow or the stunt people who get beat up and thrown into SO MANY WALLS, but I disagree. This fandom is invested in the family business and those stories would be interesting to read.
As a fellow SAG member, & retired actor, I have so much respect & am in awe of the writers and acting. Talk about PERFECT CASTING!! Thanks to all who work on the show!! You have created a well written, creative, dramatic, & comical TV series! Hoping you keep going a few more years at least ♥️♥️♥️♥️
