Supernatural Season 6

leave a comment »

As my friend and I eagerly await to see what happens in the opening episode, I am left to wonder if this season is their “swan song.” Why do I ask such a question? It’s because season 5 was originally slated to be the end of the series. However, ending can change, and this might be better or worse depending…

1) I don’t have any clue as to what they are going to do this season. Is it going to go back to hitting the road hunting monsters? Or will it be something else entirely? Is there going to be a new big bad that is scarier than the devil (if so, are they going to go into a Dragon Ball Z type of esclating evil…)?

2) Will the two brothers have the same dynamic or will there be something else there? Honestly, I don’t know if Sam, after being in the hell prison, and Dean, after being with Lisa, can go back to the way they were because apparently this season takes place some time after the end of the last….it’s going to be weird no matter what happens.

3) Is the devil really in the box still if Sam is out? Did God (Chuck) let Sam out? What the hell is happening with the moving forces of the world?

I honestly don’t know what is going to happen. However, I still wait to see what will is to be. Will it end like the fourth season of Heroes where I thought WTF? Or will it have another fate and still be as good? Only time can tell.

Supernatural Deals with the Devil *Spoiler Alert*

with one comment

So, all of you Supernatural fans out there, tonight is the season finale (as it is scheduled to be). I am on the edge of my seat to see what happens with Sam and Dean. As some of you may know from my earlier posts, I got involved with the show at the end of last year and watched up to the end of season 4 over Christmas break. I was very much enthralled.

Now, they are at the end of the road and must face down the devil. If you’ve been keeping up, over the past season, they have fought the four horsemen of the apocalypse, tangled with the Croatoan virus, met a bevy of gods (little g because they pagans), and have fought with each other to come to this. Tonight, they will face Satan. What will happen as they try to throw him back in the cage that Sam sprung him from. Will they truly be able to do it or will they leave us waiting anxiously for the next season? Silly me, I have already ruined a part of the episode for myself because I read the page (don’t read the episode summary unless you want to have something ruined for yourself as well).

As the final minutes and hour up till the “end” count down, I will continue to ponder what is going to happen with this series. Originally, it was slated for only 5 seasons, but with season 6 already promised, it makes me wonder what they might do next. Is Sam really going to be able to trap the devil or is Dean going to have to hunt him in the next season to finish the devil off? Who knows? All I can expect is that this season finale will leave me going “Oh Shit!” just like all the others (hopefully anyway). So, enjoy the show. I know that I will.

So, a series that came to my attention over Christmas because it was on sale at Wal-Mart and because I am a nerd in a big way when it comes to television shows that deal with the supernatural/sci-fi (Buffy, Dollhouse, Dead Like Me, etc.). However, after watching the first season, I was pleasantly surprised and went out to buy the remaining 3 seasons on DVD.

There are a few things that make this series “watchable” to me. I won’t say that it’s the best series that I’ve ever watched, but overall, it is the fun of the series that makes me attracted to it. The series is about two guys, Sam and Dean Winchester (Brothers), who are on a hunt for the yellow-eyed demon who killed their mother when they were just kids. Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki play these two brothers, and they have amazing chemistry as the older/younger brother thing comes into play quite often. Their banter back and forth while riding in their ’67 Impala or just sitting in a hotel room makes the show enjoyable to anyone who has ever had siblings.

The stories are also very intriguing to myself. They are based in ghost stories, folklore, myth, and legend from all over the globe. They somehow stay true to the heart of these legends while giving it their own spin which gives it credit in my book (because I despise those who misuse legends/myth flippantly).

The thought that went into making the series also astounds me. It is clear after watching the first 4 seasons that there was some real thought put into the whole of the series before the first episode was ever made. They bring several story arcs that seem to be independent of each other back together to create a cohesive whole. Also, the series never ceases to intrigue me because they are constantly pulling new myth and legend together.

Overall, I would have to say that the show is enjoyable and that I would recommend it to anyone that needs to get their “supernatural” fix as it were. So, go grab the DVDs, sit back, and enjoy the show.
