I may not have known him personally, or even met him, but as a fan of X-Files and Supernatural I do know the profound impact his vision, direction, and presence has had.

He will be dearly missed.

My thoughts are with his family, friends, and the Supernatural cast and crew.
This morning I was thinking about what I should include in my regular 'Pig 'n a Poke' post entry. I formulated a mental list of sorts, with the highlight being me whining about the hot weather. Just before I left for work I read the news that Kim Manners had passed away. What existed of my poorly formulated post was immediately forgotten and all that was left held no relevance. After all, the weather doesn't really matter.

In between thinking about Kim Manners and how the people who knew him were coping and trying to concentrate on work, I didn't give my post much thought. Driving home, I realised I'd like to say more about Kim but I wasn't sure what, or how. When the going gets tough, words and I don't get on very well. That's when I realised I could hopefully honour Kim, in my own way. Hopefully this post will do that.

If someone was to ask me, what is the first scene(s) that comes to mind when you think of Supernatural, I wouldn't hesitate before describing this one:

Episode 1x03: Dead in the Water. Directed by Kim Manners

For the first two years, this is how I saw Supernatural. Dean pulling Lukas, unconscious from the water, has stayed with me since the first time I saw it. This was a show about heroes and saving people and the toll it took on these two boys. This one scene summed it up. Kim directed this scene. This image was Kim's vision.

But wait! There's a couple more... )

After all this, what I really want to say is: Thank you, Kim.

OK, now it's your turn, dear flist.

What is the first scene(s) that comes to mind when you think of Supernatural?

It goes without saying, it doesn't have to be a scene directed by Kim Manners. :)
