Storyline

After two years, Sam Winchester is suddenly visited by his big brother Dean, who insists he helps look for their father John who disappeared on his latest 'hunt' for poltergeists- he accepts only if back in time for a crucial interview. They trace dads tracks for a 'Woman in White', the 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 then a paper-clip to escape from police arrest -they used fake identities- and carry off dads notes, arrives just in time. Still Sam decides to return, but the welcome changes his life forever... Written by KGF Vissers

The Woman in White
24 November 2006 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Twenty-two years ago, in Lawrence, Kansas, a family is attacked by a poltergeist and Mary, the mother of the brothers Sam and Dean, is burned to death in front of their father John Winchester, who dedicates his life from this moment on chasing the evil spirit that killed his beloved wife. In the present days, Sam moved to Stanford University, where he is living with his girlfriend Jessica. One Friday night, his brother Dean shows up in Sam's place and tells him that their father is missing, and asks Sam to help him to track the last steps of John. They drive to Jericho, California, and arrive in a small town called Centennial, where the urban legend tells the story of a hitchhiker highway killer, actually a violent fiend called "The Woman in White". Together, the brothers face the diabolic Constance Welsh and their desire of revenge.

This pilot of "Supernatural" has some scary moments, mostly in the beginning when Mary Winchester sees the thing in her baby's room and then John in the living room watching television. The two lead actors acting like FBI agents are very silly, but in the end this series seems to be a promising entertainment. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Piloto" ("Pilot")
