Storyline

After not seeing him in two years, Sam Winchester is suddenly visited by his big brother Dean, who insists that Sam helps him to look for their father John, who disappeared on his latest 'hunt' for a poltergeists. Sam accepts only after his brother promises him that he'll be back in time for a crucial interview. They trace their father's tracks for 'The Woman in White', a spirit of a wife who killed her own children after finding out her husband committed adultery and now haunts and kills unfaithful men. She even attacks Sam, who is loyal to his girlfriend. Luckily Dean, who needed nothing more than a paper-clip to escape from police arrest -they used faked identities- and carry off their dad's notes, arrives just in time. Sam decides to go back to Jessica and his "normal life", but the welcome changes his life forever... Written by KGF Vissers

The beginning of a phenomenon...
8 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember watching the Pilot years ago, and remember getting scared. Of course, I was a kid back then, but the Pilot remains just as intriguing as one can hope for.

I first thought that the whole series would be about this Lady in White AKA Mourning Woman. Being the network the WB was back then, I would have expected that, but then I realized how much of a horror show this was. The Pilot remains one of the scariest TV episodes of all time. It is masterfully executed and directed, it has stood the test of time.

Of course, the series has definitely changed over the years, from being a horror show to a show that has horror, comedy, and much more deeper story lines involved. But the fact remains that this remains the key beginning of a great start!
