Like every other television series, ‘Supernatural’ too has convoluted storylines and characters that contradict themselves. Sam and Dean Winchester, however, make it all worth it.
When a show has aired for 15 long years, even if it’s ‘Supernatural’, it’s impossible for it not to have had a boring moment. Sam and Dean Winchester are self-proclaimed heroes as they hunt demons, monsters, and other supernatural creatures lurking in their world, as they save everyone else. Jared Padalecki (Sam) and Jensen Ackles (Dean) look great while they’re hunting, which added to the show’s success! Unfortunately, fame has its drawbacks too. ‘Supernatural’s’ first few seasons had the typical ‘monster of the week’ episodes, with the brothers driving from town to town, while the plot slowly built itself.

If a ghost or demon would make an appearance, the brothers would save the day! From season 4 onwards, the writers added more layers to the stories, explored their characters, and added more important monsters. As opposed to storylines that came and went, these episodes featured apocalyptic events and plots crucial to its later seasons. The popularity of the series led to its renewal for 15 seasons, but that doesn’t signify consistent success. ‘Supernatural’ commands its viewer to stay alongside Sam and Dean Winchester through their journey, but there are some unflattering moments too!
Is ‘Supernatural’ worth watching?
There’s only one correct answer to this question, and it’s a positive one. ‘Supernatural’ is certainly worth investing your time in, especially if you enjoy sci-fi content combined with underlying themes of mystery and thriller. The first three seasons have the overlying themes of urban legends, with episodes that have an ever-changing plot. There are new monsters for Sam and Dean to hunt every day, it’s easy to watch, entertaining, and the demon-hunting duo is very likable.
It’s a rollercoaster ride of events and emotions, there’s action, horror, and comic relief when you least expect it. You will feel right at home with Sam and Dean Winchester, and the introduction of Misha Collins as Castiel is incredible. The characters share a great bond with each other (especially Dean and Castiel), and the storyline continues to improve considerably. It really engaged viewers, but that was before it became somewhat difficult to watch.
Did ‘Supernatural’ ever become a bad show?
Several online sources have concluded that ‘Supernatural’ creator Eric Kripke wrote the series keeping in mind a five-season run. When the series catapulted Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki’s characters to fame, it was renewed for a new season. ‘Supernatural’ never became a bad show per se, but there were moments where it seemed to have lost the plot. It was at its best until season 7, which is considered a good one but only by ‘Supernatural’s’ most loyal enthusiasts.
The later seasons see the plot building slowly right up until the anticlimactic finale between Chuck (God) and the brothers. If the first five seasons intrigue you as a viewer, it’s worth sticking around for! The last season is an action-packed wonder ride into the sunset which was funny and full of love, but it was devastating too.
Which is the worst ‘Supernatural’ season?
‘Supernatural’ Season 7 has been deemed as the worst in its 15-year history. The poor creative decisions, the convoluted storylines made it difficult to sit through, it just wasn’t a fun season. The seventh season started off with two promising episodes, proposing that the brothers were headed into a brand new threat. It was intriguing, to say the least, but the rest of the episodes never lived up to it.
The Winchesters faced many unnecessary losses which made it an incredibly hard season on them. The storyline revolving around Castiel, abandoning Sam and Dean, because he was being controlled by the Leviathans made little sense. Bobby aka everyone’s favourite hunter died and fans still haven’t been able to understand why a lead character was killed off.
‘Supernatural’ has its hits and misses, as does every television series, but there’s something great for every viewer who gives it a chance! Sam and Dean evolve over the years, just as their audience does, making the series worth of your time. Which is your least favourite season of ‘Supernatural’? Let us know in the comments!
