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

Tonight's episode was compelling, well done, and entertaining.

Had this been the final season of the show, it would have been a very satisfying conclusion to a long, epic story.

Feb 10, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

Too often, people dismiss shows on the CW as teen soap operas filled with chick flick angst... "Supernatural" offers a strong masculine bent with some excellent supernatural drama.

Feb 10, 2020 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

With excellent production values, clever dialogue, and two incredibly-charismatic leads, "Supernatural" rises above most of its genre competition on the air right now and easily slams its lackluster brethren on The CW.

This has consistently been one of TV's best. But it has, of late, become so dark it's not nearly so much fun anymore.

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.

Sep 11, 2009 | Rating: 9/10 | Full Review…

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.

    Many fans call this season their favorite for obvious reasons. The storyline is ridiculously compelling and truly unlike anything else on TV.

    I cried multiple times during this season. With it suppose to be the end of the series, it turned out to be an extremely emotional end of events. Was this season strong is an understatement. It was downright moving. Family always comes first.

    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!!!
