Revision as of 04:49, 23 December 2018

A meta essay, or meta (short for meta-analysis) refers to an essay that explores the text of a show in more detail than an episode review or recap. Broader themes, or deeper analysis are investigated, often with supporting evidence in the form of screencaps, pictures or charts.

Meta Communities

In the first two seasons of Supernatural, the Supernatural community spn_heavymeta on Livejournal followed a set regime, where members would submit essays for each episode on Dean, Sam and John. After Season Two this structure was abandoned, and the community simply provided a central place for people to link to their metas.

The forums on Television Without Pity (now closed) and supernatural.tv as well as blogs like The Winchester Family Business often contain meta discussion, as do the comments sections on many media sites.

The Impala

In "The Automobile as Moving Castle,” Thomas Knowles reads the Winchesters’ beloved 1967 Impala as a Gothic character within the series. Knowles suggests that the interior of the car, which functions as a surrogate home for Sam and Dean, mirrors the subversive and deathly interiors that make up the more traditional Gothic castle.
