Supernatural: The Complete Fifth Season DVD Review

Supernatural: The Complete Fifth Season DVD Review


Synopsis: Twenty-six years ago, Sam and Dean Winchester lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic supernatural force. Subsequently, their father raised them to be soldiers. He taught them about the paranormal evil that lives in the dark corners and on the back roads of America ... and he taught them how to kill it. This haunting series follows the Winchester brothers as they crisscross the lonely and mysterious back roads of the country in their '67 Chevy Impala, hunting down every evil supernatural force they encounter along the way. At the end of the fourth season, Sam unwittingly broke the final seal – that held Lucifer captive in Hell. Now, Lucifer is free, the Apocalypse is here and angels prepare for a spectacular final battle. Against a landscape of celestial violence, natural disasters and a rising human death toll, Sam and Dean, with the help of fallen angel Castiel, must find a way to achieve the impossible: Kill the Devil.

Review: In the beginning Supernatural was about just that...the supernatural.  We're talking ghosts and poltergeists.  What has happened as the seasons go on is that it has evolved into a religious thriller.  Whether that was always the intent or not is unclear.  One thing is certain, if you're a religious person, then you'll probably enjoy this show.  If you're not, it will come off as rather hoaky.

The essentials are that the Winchester brothers travel around killing ghosts.  Their mother was killed by evil spirits when they were young and now they've accidentally let the devil out of hell.  Of course, they employ the assistance of a fallen angel to battle the leagues of satan.  The show is very well produced and is rolling into it's sixth season soon, so obviously  they're doing something right!  The tone is good, script is great and the acting is spot on.  Its a great quallity religious show.

The special features on the DVD include: Supernatural: Apocalypse Survival Guides: Bobby's Exclusive Video Collection, Ghostfacers: The Web series, Producer/writer commentary on episode 4, The End, Unaired scene from episode 9, The Real Ghostbusters, Gag reel.
