"Supernatural" is just outstanding!A mixture of comedic moments along with darker and more emotional subject matters-the show goes from strength to strength!Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki's relationship as brothers is undeniably realistic, a credit to their acting abilities! I love the change in character of both brothers and the ongoing plot in both seasons is kept up with surprising power! Shocks, horror and disaster combined with twists and jokes makes this a must see show!If you loved Angel or Buffy then this is a definite....1000x better, faster, intense and full-proof storyline! Absolutely ace!

For me, this has to be one of the best things to ever emerge from the US. The acting, writing, directing, effects and sheer scale of this show is overwhelming. The main characters are superior to any others I have watched so far, which is helped enormously by the acting talents of Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles who, aside from being incredibly easy on the eyes, really make the Winchesters 'real.'
Some people have been complaining about the shoddy effects of the show but, to be honest, the monsters always have, and always will, be a backdrop to the fact that this show is all about the Winchester brothers.
All the episodes in Season 1 are fab - the weakest episodes being Route 666 or Bugs - and really help develop the characters.
I really cannot praise this show enough, Eric Kripke did a brilliant thing when he created it. Be warned though, the series finale is horrific and will leave you craving more.
Season 2 is even better, I just can't wait for the Season 3 DVDs!!

This show has a lot of flaws, but it has some really good qualities as well, and it's so worth getting through this first season because the rest are awesome.

When it first came out I tried to like it but after 4-5 episodes gave up. Now, years later, I can't stop watching it and am currently working my way through season three.

This first season isn't the best. It was their first one and they weren't comfortable yet, but once they get into the swing of things the show really picks up.

What's amazed me as i've been racing through the seasons is the underlying plot. At first I thought it was just each episode as a stand alone as they encounter different supernatural/mythical creatures of lore and nightmares, but as it progresses we find out more and more and the plot thickens. It is so intricate now I literally can not stop watching them. I'm hooked.

I'm also a bit embarrassed to admit it's a scary show. Not many shows/films make me hide behind the couch, but this is one of them. At the same time, it is one of the funniest shows i've seen in a long time.

So if you enjoy paranormal shows with a kick (Ghost Whisperer, Medium, Buffy, Angel, Charmed, etc)then you should enjoy this series. And like I said, the first season isn't the best, but it is so worth getting through because it just gets better and better.

At its heart, Supernatural is about two brothers having adventures. That the brothers have a messed up family history that has turned them into skilled hunters of the supernatural (and that the two brothers make some of the nicest eye candy to ever sweeten a tv screen...) makes those adventures all the more entertaining. There's enough suspense and grisly goings on to satisfy most viewers of tv horror and the parade of urban legends that make up a large number of the episodes will be welcomed by those who loved the early years of X Files. While the series itself is nearer a five than a four star, this particular set only gets four stars because it doesn't have the extras available on the NTSC version of the boxset. However, if you simply want to sit back and be entertained and don't care about gag reels and behind the scenes tidbits, this boxset should satisfy.

As you've probably figured out, I was a huge fan of the X-Files. That show had everything a person like me could ever as for, and I was a little sad when the show finally ended all those years ago. Then Supernatural comes along. A totally different show, yet not. I won't go through the story, as you most likely already know it. Season one is a good start for the show, and it proved immensely successful the world over, thanks for its continuous innovative episodes, and the chemistry between Jensen Ackles (Dean) and Jared Padalecki (Sam). Their relationship never comes off fake or dishonest, and they are extremely convincing as the Wincester brothers. Bottomline; if you like show like the X-Files, Supernatural is right up your alley. So, sit back and take with the Wincesters on a journey to kill as many "evil sons-of-bitches" as possible.

Favorite episodes: "Scarecrow", "Benders", "Home", "Phantom Traveler", "Hell House" and the season finale: "Salvation" and "Devil's Trap".

I don't really watch a lot of TV, but when I cam across this show I found it absolutely unmissable. The characters are well developed and interesting, there are comedic and absolutely terrifying moments, and there is a great classic rock soundtrack to each episode. As other reviewers mentioned, the DVD lacks special features, which is annoying - especially as they were included on the American version, but all in all, one of the best shows I have ever seen and definitely worth buying.
