Sam and Dean have spent the last seven years battling the things that go bump in the night. Over the years, with the help of fallen-angel Castiel, and the King of Hell, Crowley, the Winchesters have straddled the line between good and evil. Last season, the boys encountered their worst enemy yet, Leviathan, a seemingly unkillable foe that, in the end, left Dean and Castiel stranded in Purgatory and Sam alone. Although Castiel is nowhere to be found, Dean manages a seemingly impossible escape from Purgatory – but not alone. He's returned with a mysterious comrade-in-arms whose reason for escape is more than Dean bargained for. Meanwhile, Sam finds himself reconciling the life he rediscovered with Dean's sudden reappearance. As the boys struggle with their unexpected reunion, they make a shocking discovery that could lead them on a deeply personal mission to settle old scores.]]>

Then they brought a certain seraph into the cast and I was hook-line-and-sinkered. You might say my interest was raised from Perdition too.
Season 4: angsty, angel-y goodness.
Season 5: just keeps getting better
Season 6: not sure where they're going with this, but still worth the ride
Season 7: remembering that the series is good for many more reasons than just angels and demons.
And then I was stuck and had to buy Season 8. So let's talk about that choice:
Does Season 8 drag in places? Yes.
Does it have stupid crap in it? Yes.
Does it have moments that make me punch the air at the WIN involved? Absolutely.
Is it so meta in spots that it hurts? You bet.
Do I love the new additions to the cast? You bet your sweet bippy. Felicia Day FTW, among others.
So why 4 stars? Because I got to the last episode and swore like a sailor. For the first time in 3 years, I have to find some way to keep following this show. THAT was worth $40.
(Also, the chance to see Castiel go seriously archangel now and again? Well worth the price of admission.)
Excuse me while I go obsessively re-watch this.
What follows is a story of cunning, revenge, love and loss with very little redemption - and it is an excellent story indeed. I am so impressed with the new season of Supernatural. I read recently that the creators are hoping to tell their story over ten seasons and if the show continues at this new level of quality I will be watching with renewed passion. Supernatural is a real winner this season. Catch up on all the episodes.
A final note, the actor who plays Benny plays him with a laconic, creepy, sexual appeal and it really adds to the interest of the character. Again, Supernatural has improved this season in leaps and bounds.
After some of the missteps of the last couple of season of Supernatural, I had my worries about what a new season would bring, but if the rest of Season 8 lives up to the premier, my worries will have been in vain. I loved the opening and the set-up of the season long arcs and the introduction of new characters.
When we left Sam and Dean at the end of Season 7, Dean was in Purgatory and Cas had just disappeared, Kevin, the new prophet had been kidnapped by the always delightful Crowley, Bobby's soul had been set free in death and Sam was left all alone to find Dean, save Kevin and fight the Leviathons. It turns out that Sam did none of those things, a character choice that is sure to be controversial but that has some roots in past behavior and plots. Dean it seems may have been a very bad boy in Purgatory, a place he nicknamed Pure, no doubt because of the purity of the intent to survive that is necessary. It seems that in Purgatory, upon the disappearance of Cas, Dean teamed with a sexy, Southern vampire named Benny. Cas is dead or close enough to it to make no difference according to Dean and this forms the first mystery. Just what did happen to Cas and how did Dean get out of Pure? The viewer gets tantalizing glimpses of Dean and Benny's time in Purgatory via flashback.
Kevin has grown a lot in the last year mostly because necessity is the mother of invention and desperation is the father of survival. Kevin was kidnapped by Crowley and shown another tablet to translate. How he escaped Crowley and begged Sam for help is also shown in flashback.
Women, as always fare badly in the Supernatural universe with one death and one desertion in the first episode alone, but this seems to be the norm for Supernatural.Read more ›
