Since the 6th season of the show premiered in the US last night, I thought I would give my opinion on the series. I have been a fan of 'Supernatural' for quite a few years now and the series is still as awesome as it first started. It is about two brothers, Sam Winchester and Dean Winchester's journey to find their father in the first season, while dealing with demons and monsters using the techniques that their father had taught them. Their car, the Chevy Impala is their home and all the gears needed to take down the preternatural enemies is stored in the trunk! From there it goes through fighting with the 'yellow-eyed demon' who had killed their mother, in the second season, to Dean going to HELL in the third season, literally. And then my most favourite season 4 when Castiel enters the fray. Castiel passes through every demon shackle spell and drawings in the whole building and comes to Dean introducing himself as 'I am Castiel, I am an Angel of the Lord!!'. You wouldn't believe the chills this revelation gave me, the hair on my skin stood up. The 5th season is about the impending Apocalypse, the battle between good and evil with Earth as their war field and the choices Sam and Dean have to make. The atmosphere this show has is downright chilling and it compels the viewer to get hooked.
Sam and Dean are contrasting characters. Sam is the younger brother of Dean. He is calm, innocent and good-hearted. But, some situations make him the bad guy against his better judgement. Dean is the cool one, he kicks back on the couch with a beer in one hand and a hot chick in the other hand and seemingly doesn't give a damn if the world ends or not. He is the guy who takes the risks. They con people; do credit card scams and cheat at pool to pay for their food and shelter. But despite their differences, the brothers have an unbreakable bond between them and they will fight till death for the safety of each other. 'Safety' being not going to hell after they die. This is what makes them so great, their chemistry is there for everyone to see. Angel Castiel is an excellent addition from the 4th season, he made the show so much more awesome than it already was. He delivers his dialogues, many of them quite funny with so much intensity and a straight face that you can't help but laugh! The characters make you care for them so much that you don't want to miss a single moment of their journey.
|Dining With Death Himself!!|
The series was expected to end after the 5th season. But due to its ever increasing popularity, the makers decided to make more seasons. Thank heavens they didn't finish up! Supernatural series is a treasure trove of possibilities and ideas!
|Fallen Angel, Lucifer!|
Dean is a vessel of archangel Michael and Sam is the vessel of the fallen angel, Lucifer. So, now every demon hunter in the country want Sam dead, before he can accept Lucifer's offer to take over Sam's body. There are also many allies for the brothers as the series continues. This is a very different show from others as it deals with a different demon every episode and the main story also continues. You never get bored as the special effects are awesome and even the actors who play the demons and fringe characters are also very good. The guy who plays Lucifer also played the island protector or God in the hit tv show LOST. He's a great actor and no wonder he only takes on guest appearances in popular shows!!
The show isn't all gloom and doom. In fact, it has many humorous moments. Also it doesn't hurt when you have two amazing actors who are also good-looking. Many say that X-Files is the best show in the supernatural genre. But I haven't seen X-Files as I was just a kid back when it ended, so I don't have a yardstick to compare this show to. Therefore, I think this is the best supernatural show ever. The strong point of the show is also the visual imagery which is a treat for the viewers and the background score. Also it gives real legend stories or myths, as you prefer, every episode, like the Bloody Mary, Hindu Gods, vampires, zombies, hookman, ghost insects, scarecrows, memory traps, nightmares, evil children, werewolves, basically every legend and scary story you have ever heard and not heard. The car, 1970's Chevy Impala is very cool.
Download the show if you still haven't seen it, as each episode is exciting. There is always something new brought to the table by the excellent screenwriters. Why are you still reading my post!
