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.

Did You Know?


All four members of the band Led Zeppelin have been used as aliases for the brothers. In season eight, Sam and Dean used the aliases Bonham (for John Bonham) and Jones (for John Paul Jones). In an earlier season, they used Plant (for Robert Plant) and Page (for Jimmy Page). See more »


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 »

User Reviews

A show that has simply overstayed its welcome.
15 April 2020 | by Analog_DevoteeSee all my reviews

As a huge fan of The X-Files, discovering this show was like a dream come true. Likable characters, a new case in each episode with an underlying story to keep people tuning in week after week, and lots of twists and turns to keep the viewer on the edge of their seat.

But this show was intended to end after season 5. I won't spoil the ending of said season, but it's a very solid finale, and if you turn it off afterwards and pretend the other ten-thousand seasons don't exist, this can be a great show.

Unfortunately, we horror fans are willing to sit through a lot of crap in the hopes for things to get better, and this show simply doesn't. Time after time, this show breaks its own set rules in order to keep it alive and going. It's almost as if the writers of this show are scared to kill off any characters. Granted, when a character actually DOES die off it's surprising, but again: this show'll do anything to keep itself going, and one of those things is constantly reviving dead characters with excuses that a nine-year old could come up with.

Watch until season 5, accept the finale, and promptly pretend the other seasons don't exist.
