Supernatural is an American fantasy horror television series created by Eric Kripke. Starring Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester and Jensen Ackles as Dean Winchester, the series follows the two brothers as they hunt demons, ghosts, monsters, and other supernatural beings in the world. The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television, in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision.
After their mother’s death in a suspicious fire that burns down their house 22 years prior, Sam and Dean Winchester’s father goes missing during a “hunting trip”. As a result, Dean tracks down Sam at Stanford University. The two brothers live a life on the road, in Dean’s black, 1967 Chevrolet Impala with Kansas license plates. However, their father is not a typical hunter: he hunts supernatural creatures like ghosts, vampires, and spirits, and he’s trained his sons to do the same.
The season follows Sam and Dean as they deal with their father’s death, who, after the car crash, traded Azazel his life for Dean’s. Sam and Dean continue to hunt Azazel, who caused the fires that led to the deaths of their mother, and later, Sam’s girlfriend, Jessica.
The season mainly focuses on trying to save Dean from his deal and tracking down the demons that were released from the gate. Along the way, the brothers meet Ruby, a “good” demon, who has an interest in Sam and claims to be able to help save Dean. Also, they meet Bela Talbot, an acquirer and seller of occult objects, who is constantly a thorn in their side.
Dean is rescued from Hell and brought back by an angel of the Lord named Castiel, one of several angels who appears throughout the season. The rest of the season follows the brothers as they work with Castiel to stop Lilith’s plan of breaking the 66 seals, which would allow the fallen archangel Lucifer, AKA “the Devil” or “Satan himself”, to walk the Earth free once again.
The fifth season revolves around the fight to stop Lucifer and save the world from the Apocalypse, inspired by events in the Book of Revelation. Throughout the season, while Castiel searches for God, Sam and Dean battle both angels and demons as they fight their destiny to become the vessels of Lucifer and Michael, respectively.
The sixth season begins a year after the conclusion of the fifth season, with Dean living a somewhat happy life with Lisa and Ben. When an emotionless Sam returns to Dean, he is forced to leave his new life behind and work with his resurrected grandfather Samuel to capture Alpha monsters for the demon Crowley. The brothers are unable to get much help from Castiel since his time is occupied by a civil war raging in heaven against the archangel Raphael, and they cannot trust Samuel.
After absorbing all the souls from Purgatory and declaring himself God, Castiel goes forth to punish all the wrongdoers in the world. Very quickly, though, he discovers that he absorbed the Leviathans, who are attempting to break free of his vessel.
One year after being dragged to Purgatory, Dean returns to Earth without Castiel, carrying inside his body the soul of a vampire named Benny. The two brothers begin a fight against Crowley to find the Demon Tablet and lock the Gates of Hell, thereby trapping all demons in Hell. Castiel, brought back by an angel named Naomi, takes possession of the Angel Tablet.
In the first half of the ninth season, the angels have fallen to Earth and two factions are warring against each other while hunting Castiel while rogue angels roam the Earth causing trouble as well. Castiel is now human and having to adjust to his new life while Crowley is Sam and Dean’s prisoner and Abaddon works to take over Hell.
After being resurrected by the Mark of Cain, Dean is now a demon, working alongside Crowley. Meanwhile, Sam continues to search for Dean. After Dean refuses to follow Crowley’s order and embarrasses him in front of his demon followers, Crowley gives Sam his brother’s location. For giving up Dean, Sam gives Crowley the First Blade. Later, Sam, with the help of Castiel, cures Dean by using sanctified human blood and returns him to his human state.
This is a very good series. Great stories with a lot of history. I like the fact that you can pick up any story and drop right in and start enjoying it. I like how its a guy’s show in many ways. which means its not charmed… Not that charmed is bad but thank god its not charmed. Watch the show you won’t believe how good it is…
