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

Decent start
20 May 2020 | by shwetafabmSee all my reviews

I love supernatural 1-5, stopped watching it at 9, it loses its charm a bit but well saw the newish scooby doo episode and with the series ending i thought why not just watch the whole thing. Babyfaced Dean and Sam try to find their dad, have some brotherly squabbles, Sam seems like the center of the show whereas Dean seems like the goofy sarcastic confident guy who is there for laughs and giggles, he really has the best one-liners. We get backstory of their family, a bit cramped up but ok its the pilot they gotta introduce stuff fast. The ghost is average but well its hard to make a truly frightening horror tv show, spn shines in its bond and comedy. The ghost starts off promising though the end is ehh. Its enjoyable and makes the time pass and you have a mystery you are invested in, the premise also sets up our characters well with the little info we get. The start of a legendary show.
