I just saw this:

The thrilling and terrifying* journey of the Winchester Brothers continues with the eighth season of “Supernatural” on The CW.

Twenty-seven years ago, Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic supernatural force. Subsequently, their father John (Jeffrey Dean Morgan, “Watchmen”) raised them to be soldiers. He taught them about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of America…and he taught them how to kill it.

Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have spent the last seven years battling the things that go bump in the night. Over the years, with the help of both fallen-angel, Castiel (Misha Collins, “24″), and the King of Hell, Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard), the Winchesters have straddled the line between good and evil. Last season, the boys encountered their worst enemy yet, Leviathan, a highly adaptable, seemingly unkillable foe that takes the form of billionaire Dick Roman. Roman’s plan is to turn the human race into a walking buffet for the Leviathan to feed on once the world has been taken over. Roman discovers the existence of a tablet that is the only source on how to kill the Leviathan and stops at nothing to get it. The Winchesters, along with Castiel, also discover the tablet and the young prophet, Kevin Tran (Osric Chau), who is the only one who can decipher the text. Using the tablet, the boys are able to beat the Leviathan, but after the blast, Dean and Castiel find themselves in Purgatory and Sam finds himself alone.

Season Eight begins with Dean’s seemingly impossible escape from Purgatory, though Castiel is nowhere to be found. However, Dean isn’t alone. He’s returned with a mysterious comrade-in-arms whose reason for escape is perhaps more than Dean bargained for. Meanwhile, Sam finds himself reconciling the life he discovered while Dean was gone with Dean’s sudden reappearance. As the boys struggle with their unexpected reunion, they make a shocking discovery that could lead them on a deeply personal mission to settle old scores. If only they could agree – is this a “family business” or isn’t it?

I don’t care much about Purgatory or Dick Roman and all that but…twenty seven years?!!! LOL. That implies that we’re picking up five years after the first season. We know that Dean died and came back in 2009. And granted maybe the whole of season 4 and 5 took place in 2009/three months in the writers head’s or something. But we went forward a year after season 5. So you’d assume that they were in at least 2010 by then (in the writers heads). Of course the time jump appears to have been retconned (in the western ep Sam said he was from 2011, lol) BUT…there’s a time jump this season right? I don’t know if it’s months or years but….lmao. How can it possibly be five years? We’re in 2005 in the first season and…lol, the boys transport from 2011. Maybe I’m just being overly picky but LOL. This is hilarious.

And then in the next paragraph it says that they’ve spent the last seven years fighting and…who wrote this shit, LOL. Gah. I guess someone just fucked up somehow. I’ll just move on with my life now. Haha.

*Terrifying? To who? Lmao.

  1. I don’t think they’re even paying attention anymore. They did forget all about the time jump from season 5-6. And now there’s supposed to be another year time jump, so that would put us into 2014 if the season 5-6 time jump counted… Though like you said, it seems like it hasn’t. So… that would still put us in 2013. Which makes 30 years. Yeah, so they’re not paying attention or they just don’t even care.


    1. The whole thing makes my head hurt. But if fans can pick up on it, the writers should make the effort. I know that the CW (so maybe not the SPN writers specifically) write the descriptions though, maybe they don’t want Sam to be over 30 y/o canon wise haha. The promo specifically says a year so…I’m going with them not caring.
