Now in hi-def: the debut season of the series that’s “unexpectedly smart and unpredictably spooky.” – David Blum, THE NEW YORK SUN The Creepy. The Demented. The Unexplained. The Unearthly. Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) grew up hunting such terrifying things. But that’s all past. Law school beckons him. So does safety and normalcy. That is, until Sam’s estranged brother Dean (Jensen Ackles) appears with troubling news: their father has disappeared, a man who’s hunted evil for 22 years. So to find their father, the brothers must hunt what their father hunts…and Sam must return to the life he’d rather leave behind. Hold on tight for all 22 Season One Episodes of the edgy, hip series that has viewers in its grip and critics enthralled. Confront the Supernatural!

----for many, O-B-V-I-O-U-S reasons and SHELF-SPACE----
since this excellent series s-h-o-u-l-d last at least as long as
THE SIMPSONS [And, OMG, there's NO comparison, there!]
This series, GRIMM, and THE WALKING DEAD are the only
reasons to watch broadcast-TV! Highly recommended... Oh!
And I think the actors ALL enjoy the characters they play... it shows on the screen.
Season 1 of 13... or more to come!
The show really shines in its use of mythologies from around the world. A lot of the demon-talk falls into Russian and Japanese folklore, American urban legends, the wendigo are from Native American lore, and it seems they are always looking for ways to further the 'standard jobs', e.g. a hunt may start off seeming to be one thing, but the brothers later learn it's actually something else. No trope is overused however.
The DVD set has my all time favourite special feature, never before seen - the ability to not watch the 'previously, on Supernatural' shorts. Watching Supernatural quickly becomes a daily event: get home from work, eat dinner, send the kids to bed and watch an episode or three. The pace of the storytelling gets a bit more mileage without the story so far segments. The commentaries are insightful: we hear how the car used eventually became the '67 Impalla (because it sounds like a monster), why Dean listens to a lot of 80's hair rock and Classic rock (the songs were cheaper on the production budget). Then there are the stand-bys: a few behind the scenes, deleted scenes and the like.
The show is about family. And it seems that the cast and crew became just that during the first year of the show. The love and dedication are easily witnessed and Year One ends with such a bang that the real horror would be to not continuing to watch the show.
