Review: Supernatural

"I mean come on, we hunt monsters. What the hell? I mean, normal people, they see a monster and they run, but not us. No, no, no we-we search out things that want to kill us, yeah, huh, or eat us. You know who does that? Crazy people."

  On the 13th of September 2005, the first episode of Supernatural was aired. 11 years and 1 month later, the first episode of Supernatural’s 12th season premiered. These facts alone show how successful Supernatural has become. For years, Supernatural’s fandom has been patiently following the two brothers, Sam and Dean, along in their black 1967 Chevrolet Impala. The fanbase has only grown stronger and the fans can easily differentiate two monsters and name them in a snap. From Leviathans to Wendigos, us ‘Superfreaks’ as some may say. may be ready for our very own hunt.

  If you were lost in all that talk, the show centers around two brothers, Sam and Dean Winchester, and their jobs as hunters. These are no regular hunters; these hunters hunt anything and everything, well,  Supernatural. Demons, ghosts, monsters, and even Angels are the hunters’ business. Sam and Dean were raised learning the ways of hunting from their dad. Their family was forced into the business due to an unfortunate event with a demon. Ever since that day, their lives have been all about saving people, hunting things, the family business.

    The show explores all sides of horror. The gory graphic type, and the eerie chilling type. This is not a show for those easily scared and is definitely not the right show for logic-minded people. To enjoy this show, imagination is vital and having an open mind as well. I have been watching Supernatural ever since I was 7 and I have always enjoyed it, even though I didn’t understand any of the jokes when I was younger.

    Through thick and thin, Sam and Dean have always stuck by each other’s sides. They would sacrifice their lives for each other and they have before. Dean being the older brother would sometimes be overprotective for Sam, but throughout the show, Dean learns that Sam isn't a little boy anymore and isn’t just ‘Sammy’. With a busy and usually absent father, all the both of them had growing up were themselves. The brotherhood they have built with each other is as strong and powerful as it can ever be.

    The boys have dealt with great loss in their lives. Family, friends and allies. Things that they can never forgive themselves for flood their mind. Through it all, they push through and remember. They may move on, but they always remember who helped them become the men they are today. These boys play a huge role in my life. They both inspire me to go out and help people and to be the best version of myself I can be. They teach me how the world may never be at your favour, and  how to push through it in the end, even if nothing seems worth it. If you are looking for a new show to binge on, Supernatural is the one, especially at this time of year. Carry on my wayward sons!
