Critic Reviews for Supernatural: Season 8

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (2)

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.

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

September 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.

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

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.

October 3, 2012 | Full Review…

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.
