I have loved Supernatural since the early days of season 1. Some friends of mine lost interest around the latter stages of season 5/early season 6. Whilst I would have to agree that the show did start to waver around that point I felt that season 7 upped the game. I enjoyed the whole Leviathan arc. It was then over a whole year before I watched season 8 for reasons I don't fully understand in hindsight! And I'm happy to report - what a season.

The stories are top notch with many strong tales (in fact I am struggling to think of any bad ones). The general idea behind this season is that our heroes discover there is a way to finally close the gates of hell which involves some lucky soul having to complete a series of trials. Now this been Supernatural that fortunate person has got to be Dean or Sam. And anyone who knows this show knows things aren't gonna end pleasantly. That's all ill say on that one.

We get a pleasing chance to see Bobby once more. Other highlights of mine include the boys meeting their grandfather and learning their original destiny - this is a game changer and the brothers soon acquire their own 'bat cave'. We get a tale where people are dying in the style of cartoon characters! Sounds wacky? - It is!

This show is still going strong. Bring on season 9!

Delivered right on time and in perfect condition. It would have been nice to have an episode commentary from Jensen and Jared but even without that I'm more than happy with the season 8 DVD. Very happy to see a good length gag reel compared with season 7 and a good feature on Castiel. Season 8 has seen Supernatural back to it's best with great stories, rock music and the fabulous impala. I have to admit there are a couple of less good episodes (3 and 4) though I understand other people like them, so this is a matter of taste. I've tried to eke out the episodes I watch given that I have to wait for season 9 to come out on DVD in a years time, but I just had to keep watching until it was done. I was completely captivated and felt like my heart was ripped out and wrung out on more than one occasion (Thank you Jensen, Jared, Felicia and even Mark for that!!). Epic cliffhanger ending. The usual hilarious one-liners and gut wrenching choices that have you laughing out loud and screaming at the TV. Gonna have to watch it all over again, and again, and again!!

Season 8 marks a change of style, featuring episodes that focus on themes in Indiana Jones style. Lot of action, intrigue, new concepts and locations. And at the same time, a strong sense of continuity with all the existing mythology of the series. A great work with a truly exciting ending.

Yes, still around. For seven seasons Winchester brothers Sam and Dean have taken on daemons and much that is weird. Problems have been confronted both in Heaven and Hell, Armageddon sorted. What can be left?

Quite a lot, it would seem. Ingeniously creators have come up with cracking new storylines. (First concern somehow to get Dean out of a year in Purgatory.) The main theme now concerns tablets representing The Word of God, instructions how to close the Gate of Hell (trials to be undertaken, but ultimately at a fearsome cost).

There is still time though for plenty of fun. No matter how serious certain issues and how great the violence (some of it really nasty, with many heads severed), humour is rarely far away. For light relief the brothers find themselves caught up in cartoons and lavish role play pageantry, this set off course by a book of spells acquired by one participant on the internet. (Savour a hilarious out-take on the gag reel.) There is even one episode when Sam and Dean barely appear, as teens experiment with camcorders and everything goes horribly wrong. (A 24 minute bonus feature on Disc 1 interestingly tells how this came about.)

It is all preposterous. The creators know it. So does the cast. We are invited to join in the spirit of it all. Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles have the chemistry upon which to build. Both are great, as are their colleagues. Misha Collins is back, his playing of enigmatic angel Castiel so exceeding expectations, the creators are ever determined to explore new aspects. Brilliant Kevin has an important part to play. (A pity we do not see more of his feisty mum.) Geeky Garth is again very funny indeed.

Been a fan from the very start and it has never let me down and neither has season 8.The Winchester brothers are back, the second half of the season is supernatural at it's best. The season Finale has fantastic acting from Jared Padalecki as Sam Winchester ( deserves a lot more credit). The series has for me always been about the brothers and this season did not disappoint, there is no denying the chemistry between Jared and Jensen as Sam and dean, and is back to it 's very best. This has to be a must see for any supernatural fan. Felicia Day brings a good element to the show as Charlie, see episode 'Larp and the real girl' and 'Pac-man fever'. The gag reel as always shows how much fun the actors have making the show. Bring on season 9 !!!!!!
