Supernatural > Supernatural Season Premiere Review: The Boys Are Back In Town > Comments Page 2
Not really, the amount of viewers has been steadily going down since the first season (except for season 4, which went up)
Obviously Jeremy Carver is trying to change things up this season as was apparent with Jethro Tull's Locomotive Breath as the recap song vs Kansas' Carry on My Wayward Son. Also we usually have to endure 2 or 3 episodes of "distance" between Dean and Sam before they resolve their differences whereas they resolved it in about 10 minutes even if it might only be temporary.
Supernatural seems to be gaining viewers as the seasons go because I'm seeing more and more review sites writing about it. Hell there are more websites writing about it than there are ones writing about NCIS which is the number 1 show. Supernatural is definitely a great show that could go on for years if they choose. Here's hoping they do!
Season 1, they never truly show an demon till the middle of the season. As well as how to trap them, until Meg. So the show will work, even without demon, last season they barely show demons. They just have to find other bad guys, like they did during the first season.
@Emma - It really is an interesting comment about it not being up to the boys to save the world. The brothers have always had the attitude that it is up to them. I'm interested in seeing where they take that concept.
@Amber - I'm not sure if closing the gates would end the series. I'm pretty sure that closing the gates only stops the demons, not the vampires, shifters, or variety of other monsters. Granted, the demons as enemies have always been great, but I'm sure the show would find a way to bring in another baddie (or re-open the gates, etc.).
I do wonder when the show will end, but I'm hoping not too soon! The Winchester bros provide for entertaining TV.
@Richard - Dean really got some great lines this episode. Love his two rules!
I THOUGHT THE NEW SEASON OPENER WAS GOOD. AS BEN EDLUND (WRITER) SAID AT THE COMIC CON IT IS A ROLLER COASTER RIDE. DIFFERENT STORIES OF EACH PERSON HAS TO BE ESTABLISHED TO EXPLAIN A YEAR. IT CAN'T BE DONE IN ONE EPISODE, GIVE IT TIME
1) It wasn't as good as last seasons opener, but then again I doubt last seasons opener will ever be topped. It had the Death/Cas showdown and the return of Lucifer. Hard to beat that. But last night was still a very good opener.
2) Kind of surprised by Sam. He didn't even lift a finger to try to find out what happened to Dean. And during their reunion hug, he didn't seem happy at all to see Dean was back.
3) Dean was angry because Sam violated "Baby" by having a dog in her. That was funny.
4) Crowley. He always seemed content as the company CEO type. He would give the orders and his employees would carry them out. Last night he was different. He easily disabled Deans knife by making it too hot to hold. And the cold, ruthless way he dispatched Kevins girlfriend. I think we will be seeing a much nastier Crowley this season.
5) Dean: "The rules are simple, Sam. You don't take a joint from a guy named Don and there's no dogs in the car!"
Hilarious! No idea what he meant abo
I like how they are kind of setting Kevin up to be like the younger brother to these two (and how conflicted Kevin always looks..he likes and is more like Sam, but a lot of his recently developed world view is more like Dean's, and Sam totally chose to abandon him whereas Dean went looking for him when he got back.
Supernatural is back and for one thing I was just glad to see Jensen Ackles back on my tv. I love how he's so hostile and cold towards Sam. It reminds me of when Sam came back from Lucifers cage but Dean is playing this much better. Oh and how he got out is even more interesting (can't wait for that to unfold). I am a Cas fan like everybody else but I just really want to know what happened to him! And if they do pull off closing the gates then that would have to be the end of the series. I am and will always b a SPN fan but when will it actually end?
I know we've been through the whole 'brother missing for a year, so go into an apple-pie life as per agreement' before with season 6. But, this time, I found it really interesting.
When Dean went to Ben and Lisa he was fueled by grief and just wanted to forget EVERYTHING. With Sam, I'm getting the impression that things were different. As he said, for the first time, he had no-one to turn to. At least Dean could have gone to Bobby, he just CHOSE not to. Sam couldn't do that. Also, the comment Sam made was really interesting: "I realised it isn't up to me to save the world." For me, that comment really stood out. It's something the Winchesters have never accepted before.
As for Dean? Jeez the guy's ruthless! I know Dean has always been very opinionated, but he always either stormed off, or accepted it with a lot of griping. I can't remember him ever completely shooting down everything Sam has done and said before (Well, other than the demon blood and all decisions he
Great season opener..
Crowley is the best villian on the CW..
I'm going with season 6 and 7 were a bad dream. Welcome back Supernatural and it's brothers epic tales. Excellent use of returning guest stars and new characters. The story was great and small flashbacks of the past were just enough to make us care more about their life. Jensen and Jared really bring the these characters to life and make me care about them. Look forward to the season.
Absolutely brilliant premiere, Crowley was on top form as always. Dean scares me somewhat now and Sam... poor Sam with his soon to be over normal life. Also I simply cannot ask this enough,
WHAT. THE. HELL. HAPPENED. IN. PURGATORY?!
That guy Benny is cool but he's a vamp. Why is Dean hugging him and not using that badass boneblade to cut his head off. Why is it that Benny seems to be in awe of Dean and what does that "I wish i'd enjoyed it more, like you did," mean?????
It's not a case of Hell being worse than Purgatory, they are two completely different things. Hell is unfiltered pain all the time, but Purgatory is war all the time. Both of those things have different effects on people. After all look at Dean now, how jumpy he is and how violent he appeared in the opening. Purgatory has done a number on him, just have to wait to see exactly what happened to him.
Should have been a 2 hour premier, seems like they tried to do way to much in only 1 hour and it felt rushed.
Also i would think that being in hell would be worse than purgatory, you know with being tortured every day for decades. But it seems that they've both forgot that they've been there.
