  A few disappointing aspects - but still good

| | See all owensouthwood's reviews (77)

In many ways this is one of the best seasons so far, but in other ways it disappoints. Season 5 starts off with a very downbeat tone, and feels very serious and dark compared to previous seasons. It's as if the fun has gone out of it. It takes a few episodes to pick up again, but feels good when it does. There are some very good episodes in here, some "game changers" in fact. Some long-forgotten characters return, albeit briefly, and new enemies come to the fore, not least Lucifer himself. Lucifer, for me, was a bit of a let down. I mean, come on, it's Lucifer, the Devil himself. He deserved a grand reveal with forked tail, horns, the lot. Instead we get the usual "possessed human body" cop-out. I would have thought Lucifer would have got a better visual treatment. Second let-down is the big grand finale, which is meant to be the final battle of Armageddon as the Apocalypse begins. This amounts to little more than a punch-up in the end - although the conflict brings some great drama and shock as it unfolds. Final disappointment is the cover art - which depicts a scene that never appears in the series. All that said, I did enjoy it because I am hooked on Supernatural, and I will definitely get the next series.

  good season

  SuperNatural Season 5 is a Revelation!

| | See all wellimpressed's reviews (2)

I am not a Bible fan and although I attended Sunday School I never paid attention.

But after watching this Season of SuperNatural I have to admit I have been looking up the book of Revelation on WikiPedia.

They have managed to get most of Revelation in here. The rising of the beast (devil). The four horsemen of the appocalypse. The storms. The whore etc... Heck! even Lilith and Azazel are based on demons from scripture. I never realised that.

This is the best season of SuperNatural and like many have said it really does tie up everything that has gone in the previous four.

The comparisons run between Dean and Sam and Archangel Michael and Lucifer are genious as well. And to think they have been building throughout Sesons 1 to 4.

Loved this!

  awesome, brilliant, fantastic series

i am totally hooked on supernatural. i kept missing the series when shown on the tv, so brought myself series 1-4 boxset last summer, and took a week off work and watched one eposode after the other, staying up till 3-4am, finding myself not wanting to go to bed. but soon as i woke next day, was straight up to carry on this fantastc series.there are so many twist and turns that anyone getting into this for the first tome, must start at the beginning. i promise you, you won't be dissapointed!!!!!
i couldn't wait for series 5 to come out, which again i watched it all back to back, with hardly any sleep that weekend.
having to wait for the first part of series 6 this august is going to be agony, but i know will be worth the wait.
if anyone has watched just 1 eposide and thought this looks good, buy the whole series, i promise you won't be disapointed.
i don't ever want supernatural to end.

  A Fantastic Conclusion to Supernaturals Original Story Arc

| | See all deanlowdon's reviews (468)

Having watched the first four seasons I was praying that season five would provide a satisfying conclusion to creator Eric Kripkes original story arc, fortunately Supernatural doesn't disappoint.

With relationships strained and the end of the world looming the show ramps up the tension and again the two leads, alongside Misha Collins as Castiel, are simply brilliant to watch. There are fewer stand alone episodes this season but Supernaturals trademark sense of humour remains making for a fantastic conclusion to Sam and Deans story.

I just hope season six can keep up the high standards without Kripkes original vision.

  Supernatural Season 5

| | See all Kevin1075's reviews (754)

Supernatural season 5 kicks off directly where season 4 left on a cliffhanger with the release of Lucifer.

As the final season of creator Eric Kripke's initial 5 year plan reaches it finale the stakes get ever higher. Lucifer is free in the world and time is running out to stop him laying waste to the entire world of man. But what roles do Sam and Dean have in the coming battle? With each other - or against each other?

Although the overall arc of the season means that this is probably the darkest overall season of Supernatural and there are almost no real stand-alone episodes in this run there still manages to be some humour (especially with the return of the Trickster) amidst the impending doom and the loss of some familiar faces.

However, there will be a season 6 of the show - so, one can rest assured that the adventures of the Winchester boys are not quite over yet! And in reference to another review, I've experienced no problems with this boxset (ordered from Play) along the lines of the problems experienced by some people with the season 4 boxset.

I love supernatural and find it so easy to be absorbed into this amazing world of the supernatural, although I actually miss some of the 'monster of the week' elements present in earlier seasons, this one delivers everything you could want from a great tv series. I will be buying this season to add to my current collection but I was just wondering if anyone knows if the special features are actually on this season as there were some problems with the last season?

  Oh nothing, just the end of the world

I've been watching Supernatural since it first aired in the UK about 5 years ago, start of each season I worry that the show will go down hill and each time I'm proved wrong, the show gets better as it goes.
Season 5 wraps up alot of questions with the series and ends everything that's been set up since season 1.
I recommend this to fans of the show, and new comers I recommend back tracking to the first season, it'll make more sense. This is Supernatural at it's best.
