TV Shows – Supernatural
For those of you that haven’t heard of Supernatural, basically there are two guys driving around America in a Chevy Impala killing monsters, ghosts, demons etc. Things get a bit more complicated with some biblical overlaps and daddy issues. I know weird, right, it doesn’t sound like a show guys would like but it’s awesome.
This show started back in 2005 and has been going for 13 seasons, so you know they are doing something right.
The two main actors are Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki with Misha Collins coming in later (around Season 4).
For those Smallville fans you will remember Jensen Ackles as Jason Teague. I really didn’t like the winy mamma’s character that he played, but he is now Dean Winchester. He is a womanizing, semi-alcoholic monster killing bad-ass. Good move Jensen.
For the fast talking, big word Gilmore Girls fans Jared was Dean Forester, love interest of Alexis Bledel. I am going to admit, I didn’t get the whole Gilmore thing but hey, each there own. Anyway now he is Sam Winchester, the ass kicking, sensitive soul that didn’t want this life but dragged into it. I can’t say what Dean Forester was like but Sam is pretty cool.
Bobby Singer is just awesome, played by Jim Beaver from Deadwood. Awesome actor, awesome character. Enough said.
Misha Collins is Castiel, the no nonsense angel who doesn’t understand pop reference and is wayyyyyyyyy to loyal to the Winchesters.
Last but definitely not least, Mark Sheppard plays Crowley, a demon from hell that is both lawyer and hugely powered supernatural being. A character that Mark Sheppard does soooooo well.
Definitely a show to watch if you want something to binge (although 13 seasons is quite a sitting ) or just something you can drop in pass the evening.
