There are almost too many highlights to mention... Season five deserves almost all the praise that is heaped upon it.

I looked upon all of these things, and saw that they were good.

What's in store next for Sam and Dean? I have no idea, but you can bet that I'll be sitting on the edge of my seat in anticipation.

It is not just the words however, it is the way they are delivered perfectly by each character that makes the script work as well as it does. Supernatural is blessed with great comic timing and deadpan delivery from both Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.

Sometimes a show will peak at their season finale and then come back a little subdued, but the season 5 premiere of Supernatural did anything but that.

There's a lot to like in Sympathy, although a lot of it feels familiar as well.

Audience Reviews for Supernatural: Season 5


Super Reviewer

The Apocalypse is nigh in Supernatural's fifth season. With Lucifer released from his cage the Winchester's find themselves combating Revelation prophecies and learn that they are the vessels for archangels Michael and Lucifer to fight the final battle of the Apocalypse. The seasonal arc is especially well-crafted, the culmination of creator Eric Kripke's five season vision for the series. A number of characters from previous seasons are brought back, and new revelations are made about the past. Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki give some of their best performances of the series, and recurring guest star Mark Pellegrino does an extraordinary job at playing Lucifer. Additionally, the writers create an interesting take on the Judeo-Christian Apocalypse that's rooted in Scripture, but has a "Supernatural" twist to it. An incredible conclusion to the series (at least how Kripke envisioned it), Season 5 of Supernatural is extremely powerful and has a touching message about sacrifice and the bonds of family.
