In its new Wednesday-night slot the show has been flat-footed and dull, with no snap in the writing and no life in the story.

Supernatural is ready to start trying to once again build a mighty, steadily escalating end-of-the-world scenario that will reach to the skies.

As long as Supernatural can deliver at least this well, it's welcome on my TV.

Apr 21, 2020 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Season 8 of Supernatural feels unevenly paced with almost too much going on. I understand that this show went through a major turn in direction, but it should still feel like a continuation of season 7.

Sep 27, 2013 | Rating: 5/10 | Full Review…

Supernatural returns from a mostly terrible seventh season to a slightly better eighth year.

Sep 10, 2013 | Full Review…

While there's no doubt that Supernatural can still deliver, the premiere felt too chaotic to get a real sense about what the future holds, or whether the promise of returning to its roots will be met. We'll just have to continue to wait and see.

A surprisingly simple and nostalgic premiere episode.

Oct 9, 2012 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Supernatural's season premiere did a great job of setting up the season and making us anxious to see more.

Oct 3, 2012 | Rating: 8.8/10 | Full Review…

The episode felt somewhat low key for a premiere, but it had plenty of elements that made me think that season eight and new showrunner Jeremy Carver will be the resurgence this series needs.

    This show and season were great. Always fresh story lines with just the right touch of humor. Love these guys.

    Never once did a single episode feel an hour long. You just keep wanting more and more, and each hour feels like minuscule minutes.

    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!!!
