4.5 Not quite as good as series 2 owensouthwood | 23/11/2011 | See all owensouthwood's reviews (77) I've just finished watching season 3 of Supernatural and I have noticed a pattern forming. There is always a good solid story arc running through all the episodes. There are always at least 2 or 3 great standalone episodes. There are always 1 or 2 slightly rubbish episodes. And always toward the final few episodes it becomes very good indeed.I liked this series a lot. It progressed things forward a lot. Some old friends and foes make appearances, and new characters are introduced. I think the writers strike had a bad effect on this series, only 16 episodes made it to screen. There are some 'huh?' moments but overall very good.The ending is a real shocker and probably the best cliff hanger of all 3 series so far.
