Supernatural: Season 1 (2005 - 2006)


Season 1

Critics Consensus

Despite some too-hip dialogue and familiar thematic elements, Supernatural's vigilante brothers manage to stir up some legitimate scares.

Critic Reviews for Supernatural Season 1

All Critics (15) | Top Critics (7)

I have to admit this was not one of my favorite pilots that was picked up this year, but it does have some small potential.

Sep 16, 2013 | Full Review…

There's nothing about the central family story in 'Supernatural or its bland actors that makes it addictive. It's horror rehash that never quite takes flight.

Sep 13, 2005 | Full Review…

It's not bad by any means on the whole, but a lot of it is quite bland and generic and lacks the charm and smart storytelling

Oct 15, 2018 | Full Review…

It has plenty of thrills and chills.

Sep 20, 2005 | Full Review…

A series with a weekly horror story is intriguing, and the investigators being brothers, and on the wrong side of the law, makes it different from other programs on television.

Mar 20, 2008 | Rating: 8.5/10 | Full Review…

So many true-to-life issues surface in this series that astute viewers will see it's much more than a pretty-boy drama (although the fact that the guys aren't bad to look at is a bonus).

Sep 13, 2005 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Supernatural attempts to carve its niche somewhere between Buffy and The X-Files. But, lacking the wit of the former and the consistent creepiness of the latter, it ends up more like a darker Charmed with added testosterone.

Oct 18, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Supernatural's shortcomings could have been mitigated were its plotlines authentically scary

Sep 13, 2005 | Rating: 1/4 | Full Review…

The ultimate premise doesn't seem too promising, nor does the cool-guy dialogue.

Sep 13, 2005 | Full Review…

The show's debut represents a promising plunge into the darkness.

Audience Reviews for Supernatural: Season 1

  • Sep 05, 2019
    When the show began it had an interesting beginning, and even though it was full of one too many jumpscares for my taste, the show still was interesting to watch with all of the supernatural mythology it had.
  • Jul 30, 2019
    Seeing all the Winchesters was always rear..
  • Jul 13, 2019
    Show is good but it is just hard to sit through and watch the episodes.
  • Jun 23, 2019
    Seen this several times. Fantastic start for the long run of seasons
  • Apr 25, 2019
    The main characters are two incredibly charming and funny brothers who are very close and go on fighting Supernatural cases around the US. Must watch show! Each episode has a unique storyline like a new horror movie. It can sometimes get very scary! Overall a unique and magnificient series.

    I loved this show! When it first came on air, my husband was working the nightshirt and I was home alone. I don't know why, but it came on around midnight when I found it. I was flipping throw channels when I was the car. I stopped just to see if the car would lead some wheres. It lead to one of the best shows I had ever seen.
  • Apr 04, 2019
    The totality of the storytelling is phenomenal. Supernatural brings a dark presence that was unprecedented in television history.
  • Dec 26, 2018
    The brothers may have just been getting their start, but they already had a fantastic relationship and had a great rapport going. What this season lacked in special affects it more than made up for in charm and storytelling.
  • Nov 03, 2018
    my favorite series and really nice feeling to watch it again but there is a lot of crab CGI
  • Oct 14, 2018
    A fantastic show with dynamic plot lines with spins on well known urban legends and spooks... From the first season, the chemistry between the characters & actors has been refreshing and believable; this is truly one of those shows that has the fuel to last for years to come! Great work from the cast & crew!!!
