Fantabulous! Addictive! Two full grown adults absolutely loved it!

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?
