If you're not watching Supernatural...

...you should be.

Last night's episode, entitled "Criss Angel is a Douche Bag" (seriously) was awesome (other notable titles this season included "Are You There God? It's Me, Dean Winchester", "It's the Great Pumpkin, Sam Winchester" and "I Know What You Did Last Summer" which was one of the best eps of the series).

The entire season has been terrific. No bullshit, the show is delivering week after week after week, it's really hitting for me like the X-Files did during it's mid-run peak. It's not like anything else on television, much less anything on the CW. It delivers drama, it delivers emotion, it delivers horror, it delivers subtle comedy. I'm not sure it isn't one of the 2 or 3 best shows on all of television right now. Seriously. It's that good. Give it a look sometime if you haven't already.

And Vail is right - the chicks are all top shelf on this show, especially the new blonde chick Ruby that is "helping" the brothers. Dammit, boy.

New episodes, Septemeber 24th. I'm stoked, but also worried they're dragging it on too far.

It's going to be interesting to see how it turns out, new showrunner and the show going past its planned 5 years. Hopefully it's good.

Funny you should post this thread. I have been very curious about this show and have bought the first couple of seasons solely based on the recommendation of my late Sci-Fi fan friend. One of the my retirement activities will be watching the many DVDs I have collected. Since then though, I have passed up on good deals on subsequent seasons fearing that (1) it might disappoint me, and (2) that I would be stuck with another story-arc show that will be canceled before it's final resolution.

Is there any chance of either happening IYO? I know what keg's answer would be to (1), but I would like a lot of feedback.

Thanks.

My answer to (1) would be that different people have different tastes, so it's always possible you might be disappointed, but as far as (2) goes, it's a show that had a 5-year plan that managed to stay on the air for 5 (and now 6) years. As far as I can recall, every story-arc has been resolved, most of them during the seasons where they were introduced. No worry there...

Netflix?Don't know what you paid for the first two seasons but at $9.00/month you could probably buy a lot of Netflix and watch not only all of Supernatural but MANY other TV shows and movies.

Guess I'm just looking for multiple confirmation of its quality and subconsciously want to justify purchasing the rest of the series.

My wife, who is a complete wuss when it comes to "violence" on TV and movies, loves this show. It's gory in parts to be sure, but it still blends good storytelling with decent humor. You won't be disappointed.

I'm not a big fan of gore, either. I think the only thing that's really bothered me in 5 years was pulling one of the boys' fingernails out

What makes the show good is the chemistry between the leads (they really play well off each other), the paranormal bent (not much of that on TV...) and the big story arcs interwoven with monster of the week episodes. Everything pays off in the end.

Heh, yeah, that was nasty, BUT that episode was great. She actually likes the stories where they find problem then solve problem all in one hour, but that's just a personal taste thing. The writers have done a great job in keeping the continutity of the small and big pictures rolling along together.

Basically, Frankie, you'd be missing out if you didn't watch this show from the beginning.

Been watching the old episodes on TNT and it's amazing to me just how good this show was early on, and how much of the mythos of season 5 was laid out during the first season and a half.

I think that's why I always liked this show more than Lost: it was clear they had a plan and they stuck to it. And it's had consistent quality throughout.

And I have no problem at all restating my belief that this show is about 1000x better than True Blood (which I also watch every week, not slamming it when I say that). It's easily one of the best paranormal-related shows ever on TV, if not THE best. Shame it's on CW, although it probably wouldn't have made it 6 years on a major network.
