I was so sure I'd find this thread already here; I mean there got to be other fans out there. I have been following the show since the first season, and what a ride! Granted, some eps come out like cheap horror flicks cut to 42 mins, but most are edge-of-the-seat, gripping, close-to-heart-failure -grade suspense. I love all the 'old religion' aka witchcraft stuff, the demonic possessions and the angelic script rituals. Ah, and don't forget Bobby and his all-cast-iron panic room in the cellar. Bring on the chills and thrills, I'm in for the duration!

Nooo! Really? How do you know, and why do you say "the creator, Dean and Sam"? As far as I know, no character that goes by the name 'the creator' has appeared in the series, unless you mean The Creator, as in God, the Lord, etc. Most unwelcome news anyway.  frown

I meant the guy that created the show.  Also, there was a big article about it in Entertainment Weekly.  Or whatever that magazine is called

The story lines do seem to start to approach an endgame of a sorts, now that the angels have joined the battle. Still, I thought the 66 seals would give the show all the material it needed to go on for a long time. The last season will be a killer for sure. I hope I miss none of it.

Yay! Other Supernatural fans!!!

At first I was kind of dissapointed when the angels were brought in, and I despised Castiel, but now I love him so freaking much... I am kind of worried though that the plot will get too drawn out and there will be holes appearing soon...

My boyfriend made me watch the first episode of Gilmore Girls (wtf?) on the weekend and whatshisface who plays Sam was in it as a kid called Dean. Ho ho ho.

Does this show get anywhere after season 2? I can't remember when I stopped watching. I think it was during season 3.

Okay, once I get done watching Oz and Chuck I'll try. Also need to catch up on Heroes. I'm so far behind in everything. no no

Was the big truck/car accident at the end of season 1 or 2? Wait, I remember where I think I saw it to, Dean was soon going to be sent to hell because he made a deal with the devil.

Um there is a season six it premiers this Friday. Its going to be awesome, so I thought I would bring it up before the premier. I am really excited its going to be awesome. I think we can expect another 2 to 4 years of supernatural as long as the ratings stay up.

Waittttttt how did Sam get out of the Satan Box. They spent three seasons establishing that was their only hope for beating Lucifer and he negates it five minutes after it happens because he wants to watch his brother eat dinner. This entire show is one big trolling, isn't it.

It can feel that some times, but what can I say i am hooked. Maybe it is not Sam, maybe its Satan fawawawawwaa. Maybe the story will pick with Dean and Satan teaming up, lol. I actually am excited though for the new season. I think it is pretty awesome how they twist there mythology all over the place.

Did anyone see the last episode of season 5. How the hell did Sam get out of the devils cage. In the season 6 previews, it showed Sam got out some how. Any thoughts?

I'm kinda torn on what I think of them doing a new season. I thought they ended the series pretty well and they were only planning 5 seasons to start and I didn't mind that so I'm a bit wary on this new season I'll give it a few eps before I fully decide.

I have clue.. Hopefully they come up with something good though...

I can see what you mean, with the whole apocalypse thing. It kind of feels like,now what. The first episode was quite interesting indeed. I am a huge fan of the show, so I am going to stick in there. I think it will be good.

I actually do not like watching baseball on tv. It bores the crap out of me. Its cool to watch when your there, but that's about it.

I actually don't mind watching baseball on TV though I much prefer it in person. As long as my recording of Supernatural isn't disrupted I'm good but even then I know other ways to watch it.

Did anyone else watch last weeks episode? It was pretty awesome, I like the feel of this new season. Jared Padaleckii got jacked up, that guy is huge. Good episode, I ended up missing episode two of season six because of that baseball game two weeks ago. I watched episode 3 last Friday. I had to go online to watch episode 2, o well.

Anyway,
I think that series deserves once more a bit of exposure.
Well, finished watching season 7. And I must say I quite liked it:

From season 4 on, the whole trend was getting imhO too big, too drama-y.
The coming apocalypse was just a too dominant theme. Also, there was hardly anything that could top the battle between Lucifer and Michael, and the writers do not really want God to take stage (which I can understand: "Is there a supreme being" is the last big question....should it be answered, the whole series will be deprived of much mystery).

Now, season 7 established the series early, more light-heated approach. A nice "let's not take things too serious" attitude. E.g. in the Amazon episode: It was quite a surprise that the villains -though being above human- suddenly could be killed by a single bullet.  Also, the ending even had some childish, juvenile undertone "Dean, you killed my friend, so I killed your "daughter"....nanana...". Black in humor, but with those deliberate childish undertones.

The Leviathans turned out to be excellent villains, and it was their earning that the series got "back on track".
- They featured a non-human appearance (let's face it: The demons and angels became too human in the end).
- Despite being Über-Monsters, they were not handled as such. They were like the early demons: Though, strong, difficult to kill...but not undefeatable, and with enough weaknesses to give them the business in several ways (keeping the conflicts interesting).
- Also, the masterplan was not as over-epic like the Apocalypse. The Leviathan's plan reminded me a bit of a Bond Villain's approach: Sure they do seek world dominance, but it had some "tongue-in-cheek" undertones.
- And there were enough interesting "side quest" episodes. The Apocalyse was a too dominant theme. You basically nearly fast forwarded to see what happens. While the Leviathans could have been left standing a tad on the sidelines, to let the Winchester fool around a bit with other themes.

All in all: Season 7 removed some weaknesses that crept into the series since season 4.

Season 12 had some okay parts too.  Lucifer plays in the sandbox.  I can't remember what 11's big thing was, and there was definitely a lull for a few seasons before that.  I won't spoil though (other than what I said about Lucifer, but that's guessable and I like his vessel actor).  If you get caught up, post your thoughts.

I picked up the watching the show again.
While Seasons 6-8 were meh for me (a shot having outlived it's climax), it gained imhO some new dynamics and momentun from season 9 onward...

I have a deal going with my boyfriend whereby I will watch all of Supernatural (one of his favorite, long-running, probably-should've-ended-a-long-time-ago shows) in exchange for him watching all of Grey's Anatomy (one of my favorite, long-running, probably-should've-ended-a-long-time-ago shows), and we're starting with Supernatural. We're only 10 episodes in, but I'm liking it well enough so far.

That said, I did note--and my boyfriend confirmed--that the majority of the episodes in the first season follow a formula whereby Dean and Sam encounter a wounded, wilting flower of a young white woman and have to save her from some freaky-deaky spirits and shit. It strikes me as...mildly sexist, but in an unconscious way that likely means no harm. In any event, the show offers a nice mix of snark, scares, and genuine pathos, so I think I'll be able to power through for the next, you know, 50-odd seasons or whatever.

You just described every episode.
They even got that chick from that WoW players webseries for a few sporadic episodes...but she plays a strong female character...though normally she's saving another female character just like you described.
Also, some...hetero....angel brotherlysomething?  I dunno, I got confused after awhile.
Also every season alternates between each brother trying to use last season's the worst thing ever happened to me as an excuse...like: I got addicted to demon's blood (actually in the show), but I got literally sent to Hell (again, in the show), but I literally got possessed by Satan (yes), but I lost my humanity becoming a vampire (yep), but I had to start the apocalypse (in the show), but I lost my car (it's like this show was written for the WB, if it existed when that channel did), but my mom died (almost certainly a One Tree Hill reference), but my dad died (they're brothers with the same parents, but somehow alternately each one is affected more and needs an excuse for the entire season to be a manic depressive spaz), abducted by aliens (in there), but I dropped out of college (and? They've each literally died a dozen times by this point...like cold and buried dead), but I got sent to purgatory with a vampire who I became friends with (vampirism is placeholder for how this show deals with serious themes concerning racism....that and werewolves), but my friend became a werewolf (wish I was making this up), but my mom died (like again, except this time to the other one somehow....either the writers forgot...or they were testing to see if the audience remembered literally anything about the show), but I have a family now, but me too (yes), but I'm addicted to human's blood (you'll see...totally in the show, I did not make this up), but I played God, but I had a sexual relationship with a 700 year old witch (who just so happens to look like she's maybe 27, it's on the CW....I think in script terms everyone was supposedtobest max 27)

Then there's the Scooby Doo episode, ghosts of Ghostfacers, Sam & Dean have a YA following after someone writes a series about them (in universe) and then those books become canonical in the Bible, Sam (or Dean, I forget which), falls in love with the King of Hell's mom, who is a witch, Sam & Dean watch a school play about themselves (the ya novels), they kill Death with a magic revolver from the old west, and then an angel claiming to be the voice of God becomes the main character for a season.  Sam & Dean frequently makes deals with monsters/demons, despite their profession of hunting them, and arguing about this between them (they flip flop on this through out just like I died last season and the worst thing ever happened to me) takes up a third of the show's runtime.  Even worse, Sam & Dean sacrifice anyone they can think of to solve the case, including one another, all of their supposed really good friends, the entire Earth on multiple occasions, both of their parents.  All of the tertiary characters in the show die.  Some come back, somehow doesn't really matter how or why by that point, so they can die again.  Early on the show attempted to portray reality a bit, and it's revealed the two brothers make money through credit card fraud, though the details are not revealed.....they eat out a lot (every episode basically), live in motel rooms, I guess by a lot of gas to drive to hawaii, and drink a lot of beer, presumably Dean buys hookers frequentlu...cc fraud actually makes sense, especially since they're comfortable impersonating every kind of law enforcement personnel there is, frequently lying and plotting betrayal at any given opportunity; later on the show doesn't seem to care about explaining any of that to any degree whatsoever...probably because CC fraud became more well known and frowned upon.

Loki is actually an archangel who makes porn...and. well

It has a cool car, it's clear the show was supposed to end at season 3...that's the CW for you, and every episode has a cold opening with 7 buckets of blood.

It's a fun show, you're in for a treat, and everything I just said is probably truw
