Today I decided to write about one of my favourite TV shows of all times – “Supernatural”. I came across this show four or five years ago, while I was talking with my classmate and she told me about it.
The story is about two brothers, whose mom died when they were small because of a demon who dragged her to the ceiling and burned her. From that moment, her husband, John Winchester (and the boys father), decided to change all their lives and to hunt the demon who killed Mary Winchester.
The first episode tells us a lot about what happened from the death of Mary Winchester until the boys grew up and became young adults. We are told that Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki), the younger brother, quit the hunting life and headed to college, while Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles), the older brother, stuck with his father and continued hunting. But the starting point of the boys adventure is the night when Dean shows up at Sam’s house in Stanford, telling him that their father went on a hunt and never came back. Well, I ain’t going to tell you what happens next, but you probably think that they’re going to take the road in order to find John. Yup, that’s right.
Now maybe you wonder what are the boys and John Winchester hunting. But you probably know already that they hunt all sorts of supernatural creatures, some of them I didn’t know that existed. Vampires, werewolves, ghosts, wendigos, fairies, poltergeists, angels, demons, shape shifters and so much more — they have it all.
One of the best things about this show is that they don’t portray all this creatures like beautiful and inoffensive things, like how Edward Cullen was shown in “Twilight”. No, not even a second. They are shown like true monsters, capable to kill without having any kind of remorse.
After a search on the internet a couple of years back, I found out that the inspiration for this show, relating the creatures, has a true base. They were inspired by old tales from different countries, the Bible or stories. And I think that’s one great thing about Supernatural or about any show.
What can I tell you more about this TV show which premiered the 11th season a couple weeks ago?
Even though it’s a TV show with a lot of seasons and episodes, I guarantee that you’re not going to get bored! It’s extremely catchy and fast paced and every episode comes with something new that will make you love the show and the brothers even more. I, for example, finished the first season in two days. I watched 11 episodes per day and I was really obsessed by it.
I am a huge fan of Supernatural and this has nothing to do that I like reading horror stories or watching horror movies. It’s such a great show with great characters, which develop right under your eyes. Of course, it’s not only about serious things, it’s also a funny TV show, which makes you laugh a lot sometimes.
Moreover, this show makes some pretty great characters. For example, besides the brothers, my favourite characters? Lucifer and Death. I know this sounds pretty weird, but they are so nicely created and so nice that you cannot like them.
Oh, and the soundtrack is absolutely exceptional. They play songs from AC/DC, like “Highway to hell” or “You shook me all night long”, and they also play many other famous rock songs. It’s a delight for everyone who likes rock music.
So, I recommend this TV show to everyone. It’s a great show, really well made and really interesting. The actors do a really great job, they’re acting perfect. It never gets boring, really.
If you want to watch a really good TV show with adorable bromance, supernatural creatures and action, then this is the show for you. 🙂
