The second half of season 5 is a fantastic piece of television writing. The characters are fighting for the belief that free will, loyalty, love and family can triumph over destiny and evil, and boy do they fight hard. This DVD set contains some of the best episodes Supernatural has ever done (and there are over 100 episodes). The build up to the last episode is intense and unrelentingly exciting.
But good as all the episodes are, you have seen nothing until you have watched the season finale. It is quite simply the best constructed, written and acted hour of television I have ever watched. It packed a huge emotional punch - managing to be heartbreaking yet uplifting. I don't want to spoil it - so I will simply say 'buy these DVDs and watch it for yourself'. You won't regret it. And thank goodness there will be a season 6!
