Bound by tragedy and blood to a dangerous, otherworldly mission, two brothers travel in mysterious back roads of the country in their ’67 Chevy Impala, searching for their missing father–and hunting down every evil supernatural force they encounter along the way. Bring home all 22 episodes of the first season of the thrilling new show, Supernatural along with must-own bonus features. Supernatural is a completely new kind of thrill ride that takes viewers on a journey into the dark world of the unexplained.
Supernatural is, hands down, the best sci-fi/horror series since The X-Files. The brothers Winchester played by Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki are supernatural “hunters” who drive from one middle American town to the next in their ’67 Impala fighting supernatural creatures like Bloody Mary, a Windego, and the Hook Man. I’m not usually a fan of horror films and television- it may be a little hasty but I typically shun 95 percent of the horror film trailers I see and don’t even bother seeing the movies. And let’s face it, nearly every horror movie released is just plain bad. It’s obvious that the directors and producers for Supernatural were going for quality. From the acting, to the story telling and the special effects- the show is quality all the way around. The two main characters Sam and Dean, played by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles respectively are virtually unknown actors who had small roles on other recent series, but shine brilliantly as lead characters and the chemistry between the two brothers is first-rate. And instead of pandering to record companies and marketing teams, the producers decided to abandon the usual fare of sup-par angsty teen music and stick to a strict diet of 1970’s classic rock that consists of everything from Black Sabbath, and Bad Company, to CCR and Blue Oyster Cult, that gives the show that extra edge it needs. Supernatural is among the best shows to come along recently, and would probably come it at number 2 on our list- but when you’re up against a show like Veronica Mars, number 2 is a respectable position.
