It had a dark intensity to it that was injected with humor here and there. There was a subtle sense of energy. The eerie stillness of no background theme or sounds in most scenes really lent itself to keeping me riveted.

I love a lot of season one, but there is something to be said for the actors knowing their characters more deeply and having the ability to convey that to the audience [in Season 4].

If the first two episodes are any indication, the plot twists could build stories for years to come

Supernatural has carved out a nice little niche for itself, and even though I'm not a particular fan of horror-related fare, I think the show executes what it sets out to do with quiet efficiency and well-earned confidence.

Audience Reviews for Supernatural: Season 4

    Angels are introduced into the Supernatural mythology in Season 4 as the Winchesters fight to prevent the Apocalypse. After Dean is rescued from Hell by an angel named Castiel, he and his brother learn that Lilith is attempting to break a series of seals that will release Lucifer from his cage and bring about the Apocalypse; and complicating matters are the angels, who demand that the Winchesters follow their orders if they are to be a part of the fight. The serial storytelling is especially well-done and extraordinarily compelling. But, as intense and dark as the main arc gets, the show still manages to deliver several lighthearted, comedic episodes; including "Monster Movie," "Wishful Thinking," and "The Monster at the End of the Book." Misha Collins joins the cast as the recurring character Castiel and brings a new energy to the show. And, Genevieve Cortese takes over as a new incarnation of Ruby, giving an interesting interpretation of the character. Additionally, the writers do an impressive job at incorporating the Angel and Apocalypse mythologies into the show. Incredibly exciting and full of thrills, Season 4 of Supernatural is ambitious and takes the series in a daring direction.

    Supernatural will never be perfect for me, but they took it deep in a season like this. Sadly the latter seasons after Season 5 don't get as interesting.

    This tv show thrills me every single time with its stimulating storytelling. This season aspires to become great and takes the series through twist and turns take become apparently excellent in its choosing.

    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!!!

    Who doesn't Love Supernatural starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles I look forward to each and every season. I give it a *5* star Rating.

    Supernatural has changed, an for the better. The introduction of angels added a new layer, and their depiction is both unique and frightening, perfectly fitting the tone of the show. The build up to the climax is satisfying, the introduction of new characters such as pamela, alastair, castiel anna, uriel and so forth are a welcome addition.
