This show is an absolute joke as it is poorly acted by Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. They have no talent between them. Their physical beauty is non-existent meaning that they are both butt ugly! Then there is the unoriginal storyline that is about as unoriginal as its actors! This sad excuse for a show is doomed from the start.
what are your writers scavenging for ideas? old lost in space episodes? give me a have given them a home... gotten rid of the bickering... added hot showers and regular they jump the shark and it's Fonzie time...
I really don't get this show, it's 2 guys in a car, then they are on the phone on close-up shot, they go to random ugly places, and say some stuff that save the world, there is no senario, no special effect, no direction, the picture is bad, i can do that show in a parking lot nearby with 100$.
The only thing i can see for that show to get more than a 3 in rating is that the two main characters are cute. The power of teenage girls and gay teen.
I think Ii's obvious that this show is tanking, because they know it's the last season, so they are making it as cheap as possible. They killed off the re-occurring characters, probably to save money. They are also probably using discarded old plot ideas from the early seasons, when they mainly did single plot shows, that didn't have much arc content. I think a good comparison is with Highlander. The last season of that show is unwatchable, because of that. Also, the present season is pretty bland, because they are using less special effects, as special effects cost money. Sad. but this is reality television. The only reason this show lasted so long, was mainly because it cost so much to start another series, given the state of the economy.
I remember watching this show first season a couple of years ago. I managed to watch five episodes and then gave up. The plot is not interesting, the acting is terrible and the effects are really, really bad. But somehow people seem to like it but I can't see why :s
First thing I would like to say... Downvote me to your heart's content but you and I know the truth, and the truth is ugly as ugly can be :(
I watched all 5 seasons for over a dozen times and every episode felt like nothing but pure euphoria.
I know a lot of people said "season 6 is going to be worst Supernatural season ever" but I dismissed this as just bulls-hit and knew with all certainty Supernatural would never, ever, ever lose its absolutely stunning story and constant action.
I almost went crazy from all the waiting and then finally the first episode arrived...
It started off beautifully I was hoping for the "Carry On Wayward Son - Kansas" song just to embed well and true that Supernatural is back in all its fury, but it didn't happen. I continued to watch with eager anticipation what will happen and hoped everything would be slowly unveiled and explained, but that did not happen.
All in all what had happened was this... nothing... thats right nothing happened. What do you mean by nothing? Well my good sir its as if none of anything had happened from the previous season and we, the audience, should ignore the previous season entirely. What did we get with this episode? Dean running around chasing a monster, Sam popped up as if nothing had happened (think of it like your brother/sister you thought were dead for a year came back knocking on your door and asking you if you wanted to go watch a movie in the cinema), and the rest can be easily guessed ... they beat the monsters and that's it.
they show up.. meet a family.. bad stuff starts happening...family starts to believe sam and dean.... the ordinary family becomes aware of supernatural stuff sam and dean bust out some moves..at first they dont win..then they win..bad guys die. the end.
out of all the episodes that ive seen, which would be all of them, I would have to say that this episode was an utter waste of film. It was very unoriginal, over acted by everyone besides dean and sam, and the directing and story line was a complete step backwards and disastrous. if someone were to watch this episode, never having seen one before it, they would be turned off to the idea of every watching the show again.
i hope to god that no one ever makes a show even close to this ever again. my god have mercy on those who enjoyed it.
I hate this show. What's the flippin' point about it? Oh. That's right. The point is to annoy the **** out of me. Seriously. Why show this when they can show something better? Put a tin can man with a paperball pal on the tube & i'd watch it. It'd be a whole lot better than this crap.
I have to admit, I really did not want to like this show. I did not want to add another show to my schedule or anything either. However when this show appeared free on iTunes, I had to get it. I watched it and find it interesting, intriguing, and I have to add it to my list of shows to watch. Not only does it include to delicious men, Jared and Jensen, it has suspense and drama. I love shows similar to this such as Smallville, and I find it funny the Jensen Ackles was on Smallville in Season 3 as Lana's boyfriend, then went on to be in this show. I do enjoy this show and it is as I said above "My New Best Friend."
I have completely changed my mind!!!! I saw another episode and I died on the inside, it stunk.
As I said, I didn't like it at all.
If you like the kind of shows that go with supernatural things, you will like this one, but I don't.
I prefer, the kind of orange county.
Anyway, I wont watch the second episode, i am not going to d/l it.
I hope you think I am right.
I bought season 1 when it came out and i thought it will be good. To my my suprise, it was not. It was only 1 episode named "Asylum" of the 22 episodes. I gave up watching this teeny bopper show after watching all the 21 poor episodes, which i think lacked, suspense, good story, acting and so on. If more episodes was like Asylum, i think it would`ve been better.
I will not see a episode of this show anymore. I heard this show was influenced by The X-Files. I only thing that alike was them going around solving crimes and helping people.
I think this show deserves my rating 1.5 Abysmal.
Well, I could only stand five episodes before I had to give it up. If Jensen Ackles hadn't been in it, I probably would still watch it. The casting must have been done by a 40+ woman who has watched too much Days of our Lives. Jensen Ackles is still a terrible actor, for those who wonder. His soap opera acting stands out even more against the more credible actors in this show. The basic concept is pretty good, reminding me of late X-files episodes. Some effort apparently went into the making of this show. I was mildly interested in the continuing storyline as well, but Jensen Ackles soon destroyed any interest I ever had or would have in this show. Back to soaps for you, sonny!
When plot lines were fresh and the characters dynamic, I use to look forward to each new episode. Now, scripts are handed off to a string of writers that seem to be working formulas cast from previous seasons, and the the actors have lost their incentive to show even the slightest enthusiasm for roles that have become caricatures. The sloppiness of these plot lines (Who was the third captive? How did Mrs. Tran get all dressed up, after so much time in a stink-hole?) do not leave the audience curious; just disgusted.
It's time to burn these bones and move on, Mr. Kripke.
If this was a review of the fans it would be much worse. Regardless, Supernatural it much like an overcooked hamburger, it gives you piece of mind that you can't get sick, but there is no flavor or originality. My main point is they stole from the x-files, changed the main theme of the show, to make it seem like something new, but quite frankly the only thing good they stole from x-files is the monster episodes. This show is going downhill fast much the way as x-files did.
Supernatural through season 1-5 was really good with an excellent story and acting, I waited for every episode with high anticipations, and frankly I liked how the show ended in season 5. I got my head to understand that the show has ended and that's it, no more of supernatural. Now a few days ago I notice that episode 1 of season 6 is going to air and I am like wtf, is that a joke. Alright, so I sit through the whole episode, watching it unfold and by every minute I tell myself - they shouldn't have continued, they have jumped the shark and it's going in a downward spiral at 200 mph. One thing that really annoyed me - there is no proper storyline in this season, just some random bulls.hit, also no explanations on simple events. Are you seriously expecting that 'I don't know how I got here' is going to work in every freaking season? I can't count how many times has it happened that one of the main actors just say - 'Oh, sorry I don't know how it happened, let's just pretend that it never happened' Well, alright, I expect that it will be answered in the future episodes, but for now, the show is really pathetic - acting is dull and unattractive, story is boring and the most important part - life values have been lost in the show.
I mean, death doesn't mean anything anymore, hell, perhaps bring back their father and make their mother 'guide' them as Obi Wan Kenobi.
You shouldn't have continued on with the show, you are making things worse.
If you had left it at season 5, then most of the people would remember this show as being very attractive and with a good story, but now people will remember it 'ah yes, it was one of those tv shows with high ratings, so they had to go and screw it all up'
The actors do a fine job with what they are given but they seem to be the only positives. In short? It's all been done. And the cheesy needless curse words are ridiculous. Dean says "bitch" like 20 times. Writers: I know you're trying to stay hip, fresh, and cool but guess what? Intelligence is "in" (have you seen the ratings for CSI?). It's ok to increase the vocabulary past a 3rd grade level. Also the whole "pentagram is good luck" bologna. We loved The X Files because it actually sounded believable. This show could have longevity if:
a) The writing was better. Can you please stop insulting our intellect and give us something to sink our teeth into?
b) Originality is key. The whole woman in white has been done um..to death. Hope we don't have more of the same to look forward to.
c) Less 90210/OC and more Gilmore Girls whit thrown in
d) Raise the bar and we will follow
I've tried watching this show. I will watch almost anything sci-fi/fantasy/horror, even if it insults my intelligence. With the ending of this particular episode I've decided to give up on the show; there are too many clones or wanna-bees of the Lost ilk for me to watch a series that is getting worse, not better. How the hell did it go from midnight to dawn in 15 minutes?!!! They were supposed to be in Oklahoma not some other planet with a very fast rotation. This ending didn't insult your intelligence, it slapped it in the face. Even Nightstalker has had better endings and I wasn't expecting that much considering the title.
This is just my frustrated opinion; I don't want any fans of the show coming after me. :)
Before I start this review, I would like to make it clear that I usually like shows dealing with supernatural/occult/horror elements ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Charmed" are two of my all-time favourite shows, and I've recently come to love "Masters of Horror"). But I strongly dislike "Supernatural." I find the show dull, boring, and not scary. In order to garner a fair opinion of it, I watched 16 or so full episodes and several clips from the internet (mainly due to being a fan of Jensen Ackles) from all three seasons but I still found the show insufferable.
The attempts at creepiness/scary come across as completely ineffective to me, which is bad considering it's supposed to be a scary show. I even tried watching one or two episodes late at night, with lights off, etc. to put me in a scary mood but no such luck. However, the aforementioned "Masters of Horror" continues to scare me and creep me out successfully, despite the fact that it is a TV show and not a big-budget movie.
The show also lacks originality. It's simply covering the same ground that we've seen in several other shows/movies, but with practically no added flair or difference. I have seen episodes that blatantly rip off imagery and situations from movies like "The Ring" and "The Exorcist". Even though the show attempts to come across as a gritty, real-world portrayal of cliché horror scenarios, it doesn't succeed. Actually, it seems that every shot of every episode is darkened and graded to the point where every episode looks the same. The following quote from an Amazon.com review covers this point better: 'The uniformly shadowy lighting which is exactly the same in every shot whether it's day or night is annoying and contrived...' For the most part, the writing is average, and you may find that even some die-hard fans agree the dialogue is a little crappy at times. The 'Brotherly banter' between Sam and Dean gets annoying after a while, as does constant use of the word "Dude" and yelling each others' names whenever they are in trouble. As mentioned, the plots lack originality, especially when urban legends and old myths are adapted. I also find the brothers quite unlike-able, which isn't really a good thing as they are the only main characters. I find them annoying, too overly macho/hero-like, and at times, a pair of idiots who seem like they don't know what they're doing.
Now, to what I feel are the show's only two good points: 1 - Production values. For a TV show on the CW network, they're pretty good. The special effects are decent for the most part, as are (some) of the sets.
2 - Jensen Ackles. I may be a little biased being a fan of his, but despite his good looks and age (i.e. the young, pretty-boy cliche), he is a very good actor, and in the time I watched the show, rarely saw faults in his performances despite the fact his character Dean is a bit of a cliché.
On that note, Jared Padalecki's acting leaves a lot to be desired, and at times is downright cringe-worthy. I have also seen him in "House of Wax" and "New York Minute" and have yet to see him turn in a good performance. In "Supernatural" he sways between wooden acting and over-acting (especially in argument/emotional scenes or when his character turned evil for an episode). If it weren't for his height, looks and the fact he won some 'Claim to Fame Contest' he would be out of work. Also, I'm rarely impressed with the guest stars. What shocks me is the amount of comments you will find on both this message board and around the net that Jared and Jensen's acting is 'brilliant' and 'amazing.' To be blunt, it's not. It has sometimes lead me to wonder if these people are delusional, or blind to talent...
Overall, I find the "Supernatural" is pretty bad and fails to succeed where other shows of similar genres have, both past and present ("Heroes", "Medium", "Ghost Whisperer", "Buffy", "Charmed", "Angel", "Tru Calling", "X-Files", etc.). It seems to me that despite the fact the deny it, the majority of the fans are distracted by the good looks of the two lead actors, and ignore the actual quality of the show. Eye candy alone does not make a good TV show.
If you want to give the show a chance, fair enough. But please don't be blinded by the die-hard fans who seem to think it's the 'best TV show' on at the moment. It really isn't.
What happened to this show? It used to have atmosphere and witty dialogue, now it's just unbearable to watch. All Sam and Dean do is ride around and talk. They talk about their feelings, relationship, they break up and make up.. it's like watching a soap opera. The only thing worse is Dean giving his monologues, in this dark, forced voice of his. Boooring.
Plus the story arc got out of hand. I preferred the stand alone episodes, dealing with one specific issue. Now we have angels, the devil, the end of days.. but the budget can't handle a story of this magnitude. So what we see feels fake. You can only laugh at how seriously the main characters take themselves in this kind of setting. And what's with the pathetic attempt at humor? The world is ending and Dean takes an angel out for hookers? Come on!
Don't get me wrong; I think this show has potential. I may only think so because I enjoy this sort of genera. Unfortunately, for the actors the writing stinks!
The lines sound forced, there is almost know character development, and can we say "boring" to the old "main character has been wronged and now is out for revenge, and in the process make right the world" idea. For a program that teeters so closely on the cliché, it needs a more original premise. The characters seem to clearly state their exact position, leaving nothing for the audience to ponder that characters agenda. I know they are brothers so theoretically they should have the same ultimate agenda, but right now there is nothing that separates one character form the other, they are the same person!
This is nothing like the X-files that program left you with something to think about at the end, this program spoon-feeds the plot to the viewer.
I really want someone to make this a great program! But I think in the future the writers need to stay a way from ideas that ride the shock value too much, such as cannibalism, without at least differentiating between circumstances like: endocannibalism, exocannibalism, cannibalism for the sake of survival (even if you have to kill- “…eat or be eaten…”) and cannibalism for pleasure. Because of the way the general American audience views the act of cannibalism, and the behavior of conquering nations, I think it comes off as ethnocentric and imperialistic.
It's unnerving just how many people love this show, or to put it in better terms, it really shows how dumbed-down society has become. Very little in Supernatural is original, and the writing often resorts to cheap, hackneyed tricks to cram intriguing circumstances into the time slot. The characters aren't flat, but their stories are rather dull; the situations the brothers get themselves into are silly and the writing simply doesn't work most of the time. Plot development is typically finished with a pathetic whimper, and...to repeat a previous point...very little in Supernatural is original. In one episode, viewers are reminded of the movie Groundhog Day. In another, they're reminded of every cheesy monster scene they've seen in so many bad 1980s horror flicks. Because the show has such a great following, I continued watching past the point I probably should have. I watched two full seasons, and still couldn't find much to support its ever-growing popularity. For those who like it, good for you. If something works for you, I say keep with it. However, Supernatural just doesn't measure up to top TV series out there.
The first two episodes of supernatural is not the same as it has been in the past. As many of the viewers have said that they did not all the suspen of keeping us on the edge of our seats the first two episode did not privail for my liking. Even though I am a devoted superntural fan I felt that the writer has lost his touch with the episodes. I do not want this season to be like many other shows where you have to watch the first three episodes to get into then it just disapoints you.
I do hope however that they pick it up and fast, It didn't have the comdey drama and action as season five three two and one did I think this season is goign to be more like season four just drama. Let's hope that the next episode has more of we as fans are looking for Down grade me all you want But this is how feel so far about the new season Let's hope they prove me wrong in the rest of the season Peace out.
Well. I do watch this show, so I can't gripe too much. But it's sort of... pretty. I was hoping for something more than hauntings lite. The acting is cute when it should be dark, the plots are thinner than a French model. The premise is good though, and the music! Wow, wow, wow. The atmosphere is awesome - really nice cinematography - but they don't use it to full advantage! The pace of the shows are fast when they could get more creep-factor from slow. I guess it's cool and all, but man, I wish they'd done it a little better. It's a cash-in on the whole obsession with the supernatural that sprang up after Buffy. It's a good cash-in, but it's still a cash-in. I do like the fact that they use some original American mythos to flesh it out. The storytelling just grates on me though...
This has to be one of lamest, dullest excuses for a 'horror' show since...I don't know, I don't really remember a worse show of this type...and I've been around for a long, long time. About the only interesting thing about it is the obvious suggestions that the 2 brothers might also be lovers. I can't believe one of the X-File creators was involved in any way in this tripe. The shows are always predictable and not a bit 'scary'. Take the episode with Tracy H. for example. I knew she was a 'ghost' in the 1st 5 minutes. Didn't you? This is really 'Ghostbusters' without the humor, and that's not saying much as that was such a lame excuse for a movie as well.
Gave up on this show after episode 3.....blech. It might have been interesting with a better continuing plotline, but it's pretty much a "monster-of-the-week" format. Every week, they'll find a nerw ghost or whatever to fight, defeat it, and move on. I'd much rather see cliffhangers and ongoing mysteries than one-off storylines.
I beleive Supernatural is a fast up hill show that will soon descend just as quickly. This coming year\\\'s new season will prove their accreditation. You will see and mark my words, the shows ratings will start to fall. If it should remarkably stand on. It won\\\'t last as long as its counter parts of the past have. Like other Mythology type shows have from Twentith Century. This series is a breath of fresh air to alot of people. But for some it\\\'s drawn and lenghty in its plots. It\\\'s almost like another \\\'Lost\\\' type show. They just go on and on about the missing and gain no way of finding the missing parties. Time will tell.
