For a Supernatural fan such as myself it is truly strange to re-watch the first series after having watched all the series up to the end of series six, because the brothers look really young! But they are still loveable characters.
So the first series sees the brothers journey begin with their dad missing, and Sam’s girlfriend dying, which sends him on a hunt for their father. They encounter all kinds of supernatural creatures including ghosts, demons, a shapeshifter that turns into Dean and frames him for murder and then you have your legends like Bloody Mary and the Hook Man. Plus a killer scarecrow, some scary shadows that rip you apart and a scary portrait who’s occupant comes to life and slits your throat with a razor. Oh and then there are vampires too. Phew, think I mentioned everything.
The first series is a brilliant way to start such an amazing storyline that will have every viewer on the edge of their seats. I still jump at some of the jumpy bits and I have seen all the episodes twice, hell some episodes I have now watched three times. And the gore can make your stomach turn at points too.
The plot is so intricately woven that it really is hard to stop watching the series, particularly if you own it on DVD and even if you have watched it all before. And the series even ends on a cliff-hanger. All I can say is that I’m thankful I started watching this amazing show around when series five came out as otherwise I would have had to wait for series two to come out to find out what happens!
So thank you Eric Kripke for creating this amazing show, and thank you to Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki for bringing the main characters to life with such amazing clarity. America, you rock!
