Storyline

This television drama is about the two Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean, who were raised by their father, John, to hunt and kill all things that go "bump in the night" after his wife, Mary, was murdered by an evil supernatural being when the boys were young. 22 years later the brothers set out on a journey, fighting evil along the way, to find their recently missing father who, when they finally meet up with, reveals he knows what killed their mother, a demon, and has found a way to track and kill it. Meanwhile, Sam starts to develop frightening abilities that include death visions, visions of people dying before it actually happens. These visions are somehow connected to the demon who murdered his mother and its mysterious plans that seem to be all about Sam. When their father dies striking a deal with the very same devil that had killed his wife, the brothers, now alone and without their mentor, are determined to finish the crusade their father started. But disturbing revelations ... Written by Rachel B.

Hannah the angel first appeared as a nurse at the hospital in season one, episode twelve, "Faith", and she also played a young mother in season one, episode eighteen, "Something Wicked". See more »

Goofs

The show's rules say that the biggest flag for demonic possession is sulfur. We often see Sam and Dean sniff for it, or sniff a yellow powder suspected to be sulfur. Pure sulfur actually doesn't have the rotten-egg odor we associate with it - that's hydrogen sulfide, which is a gas. Pure sulfur is odorless. See more »

Quotes

Dean Winchester: Because I am an awesome brother. What did you dream about?
Sam Winchester: Lollipops and candycanes.

Whoa! This is more like it!
29 September 2005 | by See all my reviews

After being disappointed by mediocre to bad new shows like Threshold and Invasion, I am glad that there's at least one new show that really delivers. Supernatural is in a whole different league, with proper style, suspense and great production values. This is a dark, moody show that understands how to use the television medium. The story isn't exactly complex, but the storytelling technique pulls you in and holds your attention, making you want to know more about the supernatural beings and the rules that govern their shadow world. I'm usually not a fan of darkness and horror, but this show is effective. It's dark urban fantasy and it has the potential to go a long way. As it is, the show is way, waay above average, and I rate the pilot episode an 8 out of 10.
