I was a huge fan of THE X-FILES back in the day, and enjoyed the first 4 seasons of BUFFY:TVS, so I'm not sure why I never gave CW's SUPERNATURAL a shot.  Maybe because it WAS on the "CW," home of schlocky pre-teen soaps and fashion model contests.  Regardless, about a year ago I bought the first season on DVD from my local Goodwill store and It's been sitting on my shelf ever since.  Being a teacher, I have my Summers free, and even THAT wasn't enough to get me to watch the show before now.

Oh, you crazy writers strike! See what you make me do?

SUPERNATURAL is the story of two brothers whose mother was murdered twenty-two years ago by supernatural means.  Their father sort of snaps, I guess, and spends the ensuing twenty-two years training his sons to hunt and eliminate supernatural beasties while on a quest to find the THING responsible for mom's death. As the series opens, their father has gone missing, and it's up to the two brothers to FIND him as well as take over the "family business" for him while he's away. Lots of chaos ensues.

Now, I realize this show is currently in its third season, so I'm really behind the times, but I just watched the first four episodes in a row and I'm digging it.  It's definitely MOTW (monster of the week) material, but it's creepy enough and cool enough (so far) to hold my interest.  One of the things I like about it is that it is a rare show that features two MALES in the leads.  Think about it... when was the last time you've seen a show with two men as partners? LAW & ORDER started that way, but now, every single L&O has the same M/F partnerships (hell, even X-FILES did).  Looking at their webpage, I see there are two "hot chicks" now on the team, so that might be out the window, but I guess I'll deal with that when I come to it.

Highly recommended if you've ever been a fan of those shows mentioned in the first paragraph.
