Pros: Astounding plotline
Creative addition of religion
Cons: Allows for too many feels
With wit, humor, scares, and gore galore, Supernatural: Season Four showcases an endearing tale. And don't you dare forget about the pieces of eye candy that are Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, who portray Dean and Sam Winchester, respectively. Be sure to hold on to your snacks and tissues, folks, because this pickup of the award winning series will startle you with engrossing horror, make you laugh so hard you suddenly sprout ab muscles, and cause an eruption of tears for the beloved Winchester boys.
Dean Winchester (Ackles) is dead and sent to Hell, leaving little brother Sam (Padalecki) alone to face his own demons--along with actual ones--as he picks up the family business: hunting the supernatural. But what happens when Dean suddenly rises from the depths of The Pit and digs his way out of his own grave? Reunited after months of separation, the brothers must learn to adapt to each other's recent transformations. Yet, it is easier said than done, as the brothers become pitted against each other in an epic battle between two forces much bigger than anything they have ever faced: Heaven and Hell.
Created by Eric Kripke, the show takes a turn on the usual weekly monster regime and instead heads for a new path of religion--and does not disappoint. With clever inclusion of angels, demons, and even big boy Lucifer himself, the show focuses on biblical mythology in a new light, all while keeping the spirit of the previous seasons. Angels are not feathery and gentle, but rather "warriors of God." Demons are as blood curdling as ever. Satan will chill you to the bone. Action, comedy, horror, sex appeal, and of course a superb soundtrack are the satisfying consistents of Season Four of Supernatural.
The DVD set is nicely organized. The discs, which clearly label the numbers of the episodes it holds, all share a charming photo of Sam and Dean. A helpful guide with episode stills, a brief explanation of episode plots, and other convenient information is tucked neatly and accesibly into the open side of the case. The guide also includes hunky pictures of Ackles and Padalecki posing as the boys. Loaded with special features, the set includes a blooper reel, episode commentary from producers and creators of the show, and an interactive view through Bobby's house, which allows you to view insightful videos on religion, the show, and more. Overall, a wonderful product!
