Episode Review: Season One Episode One

Season 1

I decided to go back and watch the seasons through while I do my daily workout, and since I am doing that, why not review each episode?

The first episode of the first season is so well done for so many reasons. The dialog between the brothers really sets the stage for their whole relationship, and masterfully gives us back story without making the big back story exposition.

The episode starts off by setting Sam up as the smart college boy, about to take a test to gain a full ride to the Law School of his choice. His girlfriend (who we shortly find looks an awful lot like his mother), is the perfect girlfriend, and he tells us so: Read the rest of this entry

I thought I’d do a little tribute to some of the ‘minor’ characters I really loved on Supernatural, who played a major part in why I loved the show so much.

Supernatural Sundays – Angel “Rules”

father gregory supernaturalIn Season 2, Episode 13, Supernatural first introduced the idea of angels to their story line. It turned out what they were chasing was merely the spirit of a recently murdered priest, Father Gregory, but they used the show to establish Sam’s willingness to believe in angels, and Dean’s disbelief.

Of course, by the end of that show, Dean questions whether he has seen the hand of God, so now his ‘un-faith’ is shaken. And this, in my opinion, is where they opened the door for the angel mythology. Read the rest of this entry

Supernatural Sundays – God’s Will

supernatural castielOnce Supernatural brought in the angels in season four, the writers spent a lot of time playing around with the concept of God’s Will. It was God’s Will that the boys would be the vessels for Michael and Lucifer, and had been God’s plan all along. In one episode, Dean was sent back in time to try to stop the yellow-eyed demon from interfering with their family and eventually killing their mother. No matter what Dean tried to do, he found that he couldn’t alter the course, and when brought back to the present was told that some things are unchangeable. They were God’s Will.
