Is Supernatural still worth watching?

supernatural unresolved plotlines
Supernatural is immediately compelling because of its leading duo and their topsy-turvy, strangely relatable, predictably unpredictable relationship. Let’s find out!

The series focuses on the brothers Dean Winchester and Sam Winchester, played by Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, as they travel throughout the country hunting down evil supernatural creatures. “Supernatural” has captivated audiences worldwide, weaving a compelling tapestry of mystery, horror, and family drama. Its popularity stems from a unique blend of gripping storytelling, dynamic characters, and an exploration of mythological and supernatural themes. This remarkable series has created a dedicated fanbase, eager to delve into its thrilling world. Let’s explore the key factors behind the show’s enduring appeal.

1. ‘Supernatural’- 15 glorious years of Sam and Dean Winchester

To get things started, here’s a brief synopsis of the blasphemously fantastic horror extravaganza Supernatural: Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) are two brothers who go on a hunt for all sorts of supernatural creatures. Supernatural car is also a symbol of this adventure.

The show’s basic premise could go anywhere; there’s a lot of untapped mystical mythology to go into, and audiences would be interested. The fact that it has continued for fifteen consecutive seasons is proof that when you combine two incredibly appealing leads, you have a winner. Actually, Supernatural just concluded last Thursday, and the series finale left viewers with mixed feelings (more on that later).

Since its 2005 debut, the show has amassed an enormous and devoted fan following, among whom I count myself. Though I’ve begun watching the show multiple times over its existence, I’ve never made it past season two—that is, until recently. I’ve known about the show for a very long time.

After years of procrastination, I finally decided to finish the project I had begun five months ago while browsing for a new show to completely derail my life. I had made up my mind; I was going to go all out. Has my decision been a source of regret for me? I see.

Obviously, I was aware of what to anticipate going into this. After all, I had watched the first two seasons of the show (even if it had been a few years), and I had also been exposed to a significant number of spoilers from both my friends who were frustrated and users of Tumblr and Reddit.

2. The Premise

A flashback opens the pilot episode: A mysterious fire claims the life of Mary Winchester, the mother of Sam and Dean. John Winchester—father of Sam and Dean—dedicates his life to hunting monsters in an effort to exact revenge for the loss of his wife. He trains his two sons to be expert hunters; the eldest, Dean, is a huge daddy’s boy and follows orders without question, while little Sam develops feelings of resentment and even abuse toward his father because he longs for a regular life.

As soon as Sam gains his independence, he leaves the “family business” and goes on to study law at Stanford. At the beginning of the series twenty-two years later, he is living with his stunning fiancée, doing exceptionally well in school, and hardly communicating with his brother.

My darling dad goes missing while we’re hunting. When Dean visits Sam at his dorm, he urges him to help find their father because he is worried. Even though Sam is hesitant to go on their first hunt with Dean, he eventually agrees. Sam returns to his hostel to discover that his fiancée Jessica has been murdered in the exact same supernatural manner as his mother (bummer), following a bro-bonding session, a Pontianak, and a few clever jokes. He eventually returns to the life of hunting after this turning point.

3. Where It All Goes Wrong

Seasons four and up are silly. Angels and Heaven were introduced this season, guiding the rest of the series. They had already introduced demons, so angels were a natural next step, but the manner in which they explored it was odd.

The later seasons have many amazing episodes and plots and introduce some of my favorite characters, but the show’s quality declines from here. I stopped taking it seriously. I could just call it lousy writing and be done, but it’s more complicated. The show is great episode-to-episode, but the broader themes fade after the Mary/Jessica vengeance subplot.

This is how every season is. Azazel, Lucifer, Dick Roman, and the Grim Reaper are just a few examples of the inconceivable villains they plan to develop. Following this, the lads will be expected to triumph over adversity with the assistance of Castiel, Jack, Rowena, Crowley, or another supernatural being. So that the boys may be underdogs again in the next season, they will promptly undo all of their success by introducing an even more improbable enemy.

The boys remain in hot water at the end of the season, their hardships take on less and less significance, and the events of the season—and the entire series—are ultimately rendered irrelevant.

Plus, toward the conclusion of the series, the lads are actively plotting to murder Chuck (also known as God), which is both logical for the series ending and utterly foolish. The friendships they formerly had—many of whom have since passed away—and the paternal bond that Dean, Sam, and Castiel share with Satan’s progeny (Jack) are just a few of the events that keep you hooked. Although it remains amusing, it is disheartening to see the show’s promising beginnings deteriorate into just fan service and recurring gags.

4. Finally, Should you watch it?

Leaning into the show’s absurdity is the key to enjoying its frequent self-roasting. However, the series finale is where things really start to go downhill.

The last episode of the series was just viewed by me. Even though it’s supposed to be a nice and cheerful way to end the story, I was disappointed and irritated by it. I mean, I’m glad the Winchester brothers get some relief after 15 seasons of misery (kind of), but I really didn’t enjoy the last episode.

Padalecki and Ackles gave outstanding performances, but the episode’s language was terrible, it didn’t progress much, and it concluded with what could be the worst rendition of “Carry On My Wayward Son” ever. Even though I felt quite foolish about it, I did cry while watching it. I promptly blocked it out of my memory, along with the remainder of the last season, since it was so terrible. Actually, I simply… would not expose myself to a replay.

No matter how awful it gets, I still adore the show overall. Is five months of my life worth it, considering how ridiculous and entertaining it is? Not at all. Now we come to the last question:

Will you be tuning in? Yes is my answer. Enjoy!
