Another buddy-road-tripping extravaganza rolling out of the USA, but with a twist and I don't mean the supernatural element involving the brothers Sam and Dean hunting vampires, werewolves and things that go bump in the night. I also don't mean the slightly sacrilegious tone that some may find a tad offensive. The twist is that this is one the most consistently scary and yet funny programmes I have seen; a programme that manages to poke fun at itself and the whole horror genre without turning the storyline into something from Scary Movie part 6.
Seasons 1 and 6 are my personal favourites but all the seasons are good, and no one is spared the supernatural treatment including Twilight [which is really funny].
Supernatural? It's just not natural how super this is.

Really enjoying this series. Knew it was teen-oriented but have been pleasantly surprised by how engaging it is and especially like the little homages to the genre. It's quite X-Files like in structure I.e. a mix of one-offs and the on-going story.

EDIT: we have now finished all 8 seasons and are grieving for our loss. We loved almost every second of it (I hated the ghost facers episode but that was it out of the entire 8 seasons). We're a '30s/'40s couple who love the X-Files and Supernatural in my opinion (the male half our our duo is too loyal to the X-Files to say this) was better. The X-Files sadly lost its way a lot, due in part I've no doubt to Mr Duchovny's ego. But Supernatural has been consistently excellent. The homages to the genre continue, some subtle, some not so. The playfulness, irreverence and comic charm continued throughout. The acting is superb - the boys evidently love their work and well they might. Its intelligent plots continue. The baddy is English - is this intentional or just the typical Hollywood stereotype? But it doesn't matter. Perhaps the only thing you might expect but don't get is spookiness - I can't recall being spooked beyond season 1 - but you don't miss it at all. Perhaps Cass can erase our short term memories so we can watch this again from the start?

I grew up on Buffy and Charmed, so naturally when Supernatural started in 2005 I had to check it out. Even known certain episodes feel very similar to plot lines that appeared in Buffy and Charmed, I still prefer Supernatural to both tv shows.

Unlike Charmed and Buffy, Supernatural makes it realistic and you almost feel as if it is really possible for a Supernatural world to co-exsist along with the world we know.

The first season has a horror/paranormal feel and you generally can watch some episodes at night and be scared to turn off the light. As the series grows and expands the writers start to take a different direction but they do incredibly well to blend the changing storyline with the original plot line that made the first few seasons great.

I consider season 1 - 5 as one big storyline that is streatched out over five seasons. Unlike alot of other shows who do a new storyline each seaon. Season five brings the storyline to a natural end but due to the shows popularity they couldnt resist carrying it on. So from season 6 - present they have took a major turn. Some fans tolerate the change, while others have switched off but true fans like myself absoultly love the new path the writers have took the show down and the writers were hoping to give the show a true natural ending with season 10 but due to the the rise in popularity of the series once more, I believe as of 2015 that the writers are already working on a 11th season!

Well, if you love supernatural and have been watching it from the start, then this is a no-brainer.
It's (or was) great value and I love the show... and hence love the box set as it's value for money for fans and general buyers alike.

Also check out the new Amazon prime show "Constantine" and as a lateral move, the collected episodes of "Sapphire and Steel".

Another excellent series coming to us from the states. We are introduced to the Winchester brother, Sam and Dean and their lives following in their fathers (John) footsteps, hunting anything living or dead that goes bump in the night (or anytime for that matter)

Not only dose this series have the full on supernatural horror from all things evil, the witty banter and excellent sibling relationships between Sam and Dean adds an extra side to this box of goodies.

I have watched every episode of Supernatural and have now made the ultimate purchase. I love Sam and Dean Winchester and there ups and downs. I am now introducing my sister to the whole Supernatural family. We are currently on season 2 and she is hooked already.

For anyone who loves these kinds of American TV series, definitely give Supernatural a go, you wont regret it

5* Entertainment all round

This is a must-watch program for any teenager (or adult, not reccomended for small children) who is interested in things out of the ordinary. The show is made to feel like these kind of happenings could easily happen in a real life situation, and i believe they could! It will make you laugh, cry and filled with anger throughout all eight seasons. Fantastic actors and plor throughout. As for the delivery and condition, arrived in good time on the estimated delivery date, in good condition. Just one thing to point out though, the box it came in was too big for the product, and could easily hold two of these boxsets in. Condition was great, new as promised and the box itself is hardwearing and easily slots into any shelf.

A must watch overall!

A real treat for any Supernatural fan, should keep you occupied for many months. Very nice deluxe box, with many central characters used for the art. Fair price too, although the blu ray version is a bit more pricey. The first few seasons have a very 'monster of the week' vibe. Some stories can also be seen as spins on old Buffy and X-Files tales. But it is still very enjoyable, with some good scares and occasional action. It is stronger in later seasons. Jared and Jensen are great as Sam and Dean. Two brothers who hunt all forms of evil forces. You find out about their childhoods, their father, their relationship, and what drives them throughout the episodes. Contains some great humour too, mostly from Dean. Rock music fans may enjoy the show too, since their car radio ofter plays Black Sabbath, AC/DC, and Metallica. A top show for horror lovers that may not win awards for originality. But it is entertaining and has good extras in the collection too.

The Winchester boys in 8 seasons of supernatural on DVD!!! Of course it's got 5 stars.
My daughter got me into this show. I'm not a fan of horror at all and have avoided anything scary for years. The first 2-3 seasons of the show are quite creepy and scary at times. Having finished the box set there are still a few episodes from the earlier seasons that freak me out. But as the show goes on it becomes less scary and more about the gorgeous men who star in it.
The characters are believable and make you feel for them and care about them. They will make you laugh, cry, get mad and sometimes totally disagree with everything they do. But you will love them, maybe even fall in love with them. You will watch back to back episodes and be desperate for more!
I love this show, and I didn't expect to even like it.

I'd heard this was good. So far, I'm not even halfway through the set, and I'm really looking forward to seeing the rest. The first couple of seasons have some overarcing storylines, but mostly are standalone episodes, but by a few episodes into season four a full story is in place. The writing is sharp, and every so often the script team realise you have emotions and that they have a woodchipper nearby. At other times, an entire episode is themed in a goofy way, and even a serious episode has some hilarious one-liners.

Well worth it, though I'd keep an eye on it as I managed to snatch it on a short-notice sale and save about £15.

I loved this. Definitely worth the price, couldn't stop watching them on tv and still can't on DVD. I would recommend this to everyone!
