I know I’m a little behind, but for those who have missed it, Kim Manners passed away.
Kim Manners, director and executive producer of Supernatural, died of lung cancer on 25 January, 2009. Our sympathies and thoughts to his family and close friends on the cast and crew of Supernatural.
“Everyone at Supernatural is walking around in a daze, shocked and absolutely devastated. Kim was a brilliant director; more than that, he was a mentor and friend. He was one of the patriarchs of the family, and we miss him desperately. He gave so much to Supernatural, and everything we do on the show, now and forever, is in memory of him.”
The last year in general has been a sucky one for geekdom. To give you an idea just how bad this is, here’s the SN list of episodes he directed.
- 1.03 Dead in the Water
- 1.08 Bugs
- 1.11 Scarecrow
- 1.12 Shadow
- 1.22 Devil’s Trap
- 2.01 In My Time Of Dying
- 2.04 Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things
- 2.06 No Exit
- 2.13 Houses of the Holy
- 2.17 Heart
- 2.22 All Hell Breaks Loose: Part Two
- 3.01 The Magnificent Seven
- 3.07 Fresh Blood
- 3.11 Mystery Spot
- 3.16 No Rest For The Wicked
- 4.01 Lazarus Rising
- 4.04 Metamorphosis
Yes, those are some of the best of the show (and all 3 season finales too). In honor of Kim, let’s enjoy this video at least once.
Thanks for blessing the world with your talent Sir Manners. You will be sorely missed.
