"Supernatural" is an American Drama / Horror series that stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as demon hunting brothers, Sam and Dean Winchester.
Season one starts with a prologue set in the early 80's, in which the boys have their mother taken from them in a gruesome murder by a mysterious dark figure with yellow eyes.
We then fast-forward to 2005, where we find the younger brother, Sam, attending Stanford University. Having been dragged around the country for most of his childhood by his strict father, on a quest to find the thing that killed his mother, Sam has now left his troubled family behind and settled into a normal life with girlfriend Jessica. That is, until older brother Dean shows up in the middle of the night, with disturbing news that threatens to turn Sam's world upside down once again.
Their father, who has been hunting evil (including ghosts, demons, vampires and werewolves) since the death of his wife twenty-odd years ago, has disappeared. And now, to find him, Sam must return to the life he thought he'd left behind and join his brother on a road trip that will change both of their lives forever...
I can't recommend this series highly enough -- it's one of the most criminally underrated and overlooked dramas on TV. It manages to effortlessly blend drama, horror, action and comedy to create one of the most compelling, scary (and not to mention, sexy) series on TV.
The lead actors, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, are brilliant in their roles as brothers who, underneath all of the squabbling and sarcastic one-liners, would readily die to protect one another, and their relationship provides the show with many poignant moments amid all of the thrills and chills.
The various monsters and ghouls featured in the series are brought to life using impressive CGI and special effects, and the show has a cool, striking visual style that would not look out of place on a cinema screen.
So, to sum up, I'd simply say that if you're looking for hot young stars, heart-stopping suspense, compulsive storylines and spectacular visuals, then you should definitely give "Supernatural" a go. You won't regret it.
