Supernatural really is part of the staple diet for people who enjoy a good show. It provides an interesting story line, well developed plot lines and a great cast. This is my second time running through the series, and I really aren’t afraid at all this time around haha. There are still a few episodes where I am like – eugh, cannibal-hillbilly episode I’m looking at you, but I was endlessly entertained. I’ve retained quite a bit from the first time around, and the episodes are so interesting to see again. Sure, the CGI might be terrible and the cheese might be strong in a few places, but hey, this was a low-budget production in its’ first season and it was 2005 after all.
Season one is SO good. Even Sam Winchester is tolerable, and if you want to know how much I adored him in seasons 4 and 5, just ask my favourite confidante. I’m team Dean all the way, not only because he is the most perfectly faced man I have ever seen, his character is well layered, extremely fun and ridiculous, and who the character is – you can’t help but love the guy who just wants his family back together.
I think my biggest irritation in the season was Meg, the unbelievably annoying demon who just annoyed me endlessly. It probably had something to do with the actress as well – Nicci Aycox worked on my nerves from the get go. ugh.
Favorite episode? Perhaps the one with the Asylum. It was well written and played well into popular culture themes.
I really enjoy the main cast, notably Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester. To think that guy started out as Eric Brody in Days of Our Lives – just so much fun there. DW is a great character and as mentioned earlier, full of layers. I actually thought Sam was okay in here, not as annoying as he becomes in season four. I really find it amusing that they would cast Jeffrey Dean Morgan as their father – I think he is a great John Winchester and super fine, but come on, the ages just don’t match up.
I cannot recommend this show enough – it is so much fun.
