Very Very Good!,
This review is from: Supernatural - Season 1 Part 1 [DVD] (DVD)This show has a wonderful feel. A mix of 'Buffy' and 'X-files'. Each episode has a different case/story and is set in a new town, like the X-files. With a thought out mythology that Buffy had, and a few fights. The actors are wonderful, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki are completely believable as brothers. Jared being the sensible, but pretty one. Jensen being the wreckless, rugged one, that all the girls (and boys) love.
In this half of the series, it's mostly stand alone episodes. with a few continuations throughout, that refer to the characters, personal journeys. Featuring lots of cameos from stars of cult series. the biggest is Amy Acker (Fred) from Angel, so look out for her.
Overall - I loved it. There are lots of moments when you think, that a blatent rip-off from the grudge or house on haunted hill or jeepers creepers. but, with a little twist to differentiate the two. BUT, DON'T TAKE IT TOO SERIOUSLY. It's fun! The actings great. Effects are really really glossy. and the end of the this boxset sees the start of a side character 'Meg'. who looks like touble for the boys.
THE SERIES IS GREAT, but, Warner Bros. really need to employ a better graphic designer! the box has a georgous cover, but, the dvds have all the same covers. being a graphic designer myself, that is a real annoyance!!! let alone lazy and confusing!!! plus give us some special features!
