supernatural c Supernatural Season 5 Premiere: Review & Discussion

No real spoilers are in this article.

Sometimes a show will peak at their season finale and then come back a little subdued, but the season 5 premiere of Supernatural did anything but that. The show opened with a fantastic recap of last season, accompanied by an awesome AC/DC song called “Thunderstruck.”  After the recap, we slipped right into the action, picking up exactly where the finale left us. The Winchester brothers trying to get away from the portal that Lucifer was released from and we went from there.

We got a great opening dose of Castiel, Bobby, Meg, the scribe Chuck, Lucifer and his newest vessel (Mark Pellegrino). Eric Kripke (Creator) really tossed up a nice curve ball with Lucifer’s salesmanship. Dang.

We also got some standard verbal ass-hats from Dean and quite a bit of butt-kicking from Sam and Dean in this season 5 opener. If the series maintains this kind of momentum, it will be a butt-kicker of a show this season. One of the things I look forward to are the Four Horsemen in their muscle cars on Supernatural.

I was shocked with the state Bobby was in (Did I forget something from last season?) and the final conversation in this episode between the brothers was incredibly insightful and will leave an interesting undertone for me throughout the rest of the season.

Maybe I’m partial, but what befuddles me is that Supernatural premiered with only 3.4 million viewers, dropping approximately 600k viewers from the season 4 opener.  Have they lost viewers from the CW moving Smallville to Fridays?  Who knows but they broke up a well-integrated team of shows, hoping to help their new vamp show, The Vampire Diaries.  (Where’s Buffy when you need her?)

So, am I totally biased, or was this an awesome premiere of Supernatural?

Yikes, Conspiracy theory……..never thought I would fall to this one….I just thought I would share this with my husband and now I think …well …I have discovered that I would like to share my thoughts with other fans of sci-fi and sci-fantasy and alternative shows like Lie To Me,Dollhouse,Sanctuary,Eureka.What is Flashforward and Sons of Anarchy,Burn Notice,V,Warehouse 13.I know I could look them up, but it might be fine if during the long winter here, if I had a chat friend to discuss these and other shows with………………???? is this a weird thought?

  4. How do I get the Avatar.Maybe I am challenged but I am having a problem creating,whoops a Gravatar.I see that you are supposed to go to, but then………Now I am really frustrated…I have been at trying to find a picture for a Gravatarfor at least 15 minutes, I do not understand the process.

  5. Okay. I am giving up. I am the only stupid chatterbox on this web-site,should have known that this was a lesson in futility.This site, as many or most are just trying to collect illegal information on sincerley caring people and or fans to use, or to link others to use these stupid, caring fans…..already there are words missing….now I have to figure how to un-subscribe from this web-site. Should have known better…

    What in the bloody hell are you talking about? “Collect illegal information”? Please, give me a break. Maybe you want to give people some time to REPLY to your string of comments.

    I’m going to unsubscribe you right after I post this comment.

    Have a nice day,


  7. i meant no disrespect,i also do not remember posting that conversation at 1:05 am.Maybe I was just getting tired and used the wrong words.Again Mr.Vic Holtreman. I would understand your reaction to those incensitive words, like I said if I could rember saying.Yours with sincere apology…MEDWYN

  8. Just recently saw the first 2 episodes of season 2, and found out that the father died by giving up his life for Dean. Don’t know if I should try to see the new episodes before seeing all of the previous episodes.

  9. Ive been saying all along…Sam is Lucifer’s vessel I knew it!!!

  10. So far an excellent season. I hope they keep bringing Cass back. I loved it when Dean said “Eat it Twilight” before he killed that vampire. ROTFL!! You have to love Dean!

  11. why am i still a object of conversation…………………..
