Supernatural: The Complete Eleventh Season (BD)
In the show’s tenth season, Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles) faced their most personal threat yet. The all-powerful Mark of Cain threatened to consume Dean, turning him into one of the monsters he has spent his life hunting. Meanwhile, a formidable witch, Rowena (Ruth Connell), rose to power to claim her position at the right hand of the King of Hell, Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard). Once Rowena revealed herself to be Crowley’s mother, the King was forced to choose between his family and the Winchesters — all while Sam, with the help of fallen angel Castiel (Misha Collins), Crowley and some unlikely allies, waged a desperate battle to save Dean from the Mark of Cain. Taking matters into his own hands, Dean paid a terrible price to break free of the curse, but with Death defeated and Darkness freed upon the Earth, the Winchesters will need all the help they can get.]]>

At the end of season ten, when the darkness was unleashed, I had high hopes for season eleven. It definitely has it a high points, but let me start where it's lacking. First, the dragging thru the first few episodes felt like filler. I understand the concept behind what they were trying to do, but it just felt blah. Second, the darkness and Dean's connection just wasn't well portrayed. I just wasn't getting the vibe that they had any chemistry, and personally, the actress who plays the darkness was average at best. So far all the characters in the series seemed to be played well by their actors/actresses, but the performance of the darkness just seemed lacking.
Neither of these took away from the season in my opinion for a few reasons. First, Misha Collins new role was exceptional. He has portrayed every part in this show impeccably, but this may be my all time favorite. Second, the introduction/ reintroduction of an old character who most were sure fell out of existence (no spoilers here but every one knows who I mean) was the pivotal moment the season was leading up to. Seeing them last season, I knew something big was coming, and it hit the nail on the head. Third, the show still manages to stick to its roots. I love the new monsters, that's what hooked me in the beginning and it still entices me today. I love the laughs I still get, I think they are more prominent as the seasons go by. I love the general feels from this show, the roller coaster of emotions. Last but never least, Jim Beavers tolkien episode always reminds me of the good old days. I hope they keep that up thru the course of the show.
Overall, I was highly impressed. The great outweighed the minimal amount of bland and I'm looking forward to owning season twelve.
-Supernatural- has lasted 11 seasons now, and shows no signs of either slowing down, decreasing in quality, or (horrors!) getting boring. After the season 10 finale, you get an opener that is surprising in more ways than one, and from there it only gets better. (It's -really- hard to do this without spoilers, but you should probably do your imagination stretches before the workout of watching!) There are some new monsters, of course, as well as new twists on old ones, and for once the Winchester boys meet a creature species that is actually benevolent! There are some surprising alliances made, as well as some mistakes on the "Augh! No, DON'T DO THAT!" level, and we get to meet the Reaper who steps in for Death after his (apparent?) demise--and she's soooo not happy with Sam and Dean. There's a whole list of "Whatever happened to X?" that gets checked off, and some "payoffs" from former seasons that pop back up (sigil watchers, take note). And this season's finale sets us up for yet -another- can of worms to be opened...maybe even more than one! All in all, just plain awesome.
One final note. Unlike many, I -depend- on these box sets, as my TV is not in contact with the outside world (I had a major argument with our local cable provider). Consequently, I am always a year behind. Which means, any spoilers carelessly dropped by others strike -my- little world with the impact of a medium-yield nuke. And I encountered one, on this site, a couple of months ago when I first pre-ordered. So my PSA for this review is: Spoilers are rude, dude. So don't. Just...-don't-.
The blu-ray: 5. A couple commentaries and a handful of featurettes. When compared to season 10 it's a 4-star rating, but when compared to the entire 11 season run of extras, it's towards the top. So, in the end, a solid 5 stars for the extras.
