I only really got into Supernatural recently. I discovered it quite by accident after complaining to a mate that there wasn't anything exciting on TV anymore, and he wigged out about 'Supernatural: it's so awesome!' So, I decided to see what all the fuss was about. I'm now an addict. I think I got through season 1 in a week, and season 2 I had to force myself to slow down. I love it! Yes, it has it's problems, but the charisma (not to mention impressive physique) of Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, combined with the cheesy, sometimes quite freaky, 'monster of the week' plot lines, make it almost compulsive viewing. I was raised on monster movies, so it's great to find a TV show that riffs on that. The dialogue is fun and loaded with pop-culture references, and the action is gung-ho and fast paced. Also, the soundtrack is like someone stole my i-pod! Classic rock all round! By the end of the second season, it' like the writers were writing to AC DC. I have to approve.
And then there's the car. You gotta love the car.
So if you ever pine for the days of Buffy and co, then this show should be right up your ally. If you like zombies, vampires and the odd cursed ghost thrown in for good measure, this show is for you. If you have an i-pod full of Blue Oyster Cult, Kansas, Def Leppard, Lynyrd Skynyrd, or even Spinal Tap (made me soooo happy!) then turn this on! And if you don't, well, come for the Winchester brothers - two engaging and interesting lead characters you can't help but fall in love with (and who are pretty easy on the eye to boot!)
This show is my favourite thing on TV at the moment. I think it's a crime more people aren't watching it. OK, so I got to it a little late, but at least I got there! You should too. It's fun, action packed, and there are a couple of scares in there along the way. The writing is enthralling, the performances are good, and did I mention the car? Go watch now!
