Supernatural is one of those shows that can tie you in within the first few minutes and leave you breathless and wanting more. I’ve seen my fair share of horror movies, most of which I found unappealing, cliché, and filled with idiocy and flat characterization. So, having heard about Supernatural on various blogs and from many friends, I decided to give it a chance, but wasn’t really expecting much in the outcome.

The title itself displays the show’s aura in a striking way: simple, yet curious. The word ‘supernatural’ means ‘a manifestation or event attributed to some force beyond scientific understanding or the laws of nature’. Basically, it talks about things to do with ghosts, demons, and other paranormal activities. And Supernatural handles this well. It deals with many terrifying things, which left me staring at my screen in shock.

Supernatural follows the stories of two brothers: Sam and Dean Winchester. After a disturbing event involving a demon in their childhood, their father, John Winchester, raises the two much like soldiers, trained to handle any demon or ghost with striking accuracy. Sam, however, longs for a normal life, and soon leaves for college, away from his family and old life.

The season starts with Dean showing up to Sam’s college campus and informing him their father has gone missing. And it all takes off from there, with the brothers traveling over the U.S.A., trying to find their dad and also tackling the various paranormal issues that plague whatever town they happen to be nearby.

The thing that sets Supernatural apart from the rest of the horror shows and movies is that the lack of stupidity from the characters. How many times have we watched a movie and wondered, Why don’t they just call the police? or Did they really just drop their knife?! Seriously? And why aren’t they picking it up? Why don’t they kick him? What?! Supernatural has none of that. The brothers are literally trained to fight these creatures; and let me tell you, there is nothing more terrifying than seeing characters do everything right and handle the situation well, yet still have their lives in danger. Sam and Dean Winchester are probably what make baby demons cry at night. Yet they still manage to get themselves into spine-tingling situations. These demons are no joke.

At the same time, the characters are very multi-faceted. The brothers are very, very different, and this often sets them against each other. They get into fights and arguments easily, especially seeing as Sam is the kind to open up and outright tell how he feels, whereas Dean is more closed in and reserved and prefers to bury his emotions within himself. Their father, even, is very flawed. There is a lot of angst and tragedy and some scenes that made me wince and pause and turn the lights on. And, yes, I cried. Supernatural has everything you need in a series, yet they still manage to weave it together in a way that does justice to the series and leaves you needing more of these characters and their adventures, especially considering the ending of the first season.

All in all, I recommend Supernatural to anyone going through a tough time, with an interest in the odd, or a thirst for something that will make your heart ache with feeling. They say enough yet hide little treasures and facts about the characters and their stories so that watching the show is like an adventure in itself.
