Supernatural: Season 1 Reviews

October 15, 2018
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

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.

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.

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.

It has plenty of thrills and chills.

The show's debut represents a promising plunge into the darkness.
September 13, 2005
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.

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

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

Supernatural is genuinely scary.
September 13, 2005
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).

Supernatural knows what it is, what it wants to accomplish, and gets there in a sweet-looking package with a maximum number of spooky moments per hour.

Of all the season's new dark-arts adventures, WB's aptly if generically named Supernatural may be the simplest and the scariest.
