It had a dark intensity to it that was injected with humor here and there. There was a subtle sense of energy. The eerie stillness of no background theme or sounds in most scenes really lent itself to keeping me riveted.

I love a lot of season one, but there is something to be said for the actors knowing their characters more deeply and having the ability to convey that to the audience [in Season 4].

If the first two episodes are any indication, the plot twists could build stories for years to come

Supernatural has carved out a nice little niche for itself, and even though I'm not a particular fan of horror-related fare, I think the show executes what it sets out to do with quiet efficiency and well-earned confidence.

Audience Reviews for Supernatural: Season 4



Super Reviewer

Angels are introduced into the Supernatural mythology in Season 4 as the Winchesters fight to prevent the Apocalypse. After Dean is rescued from Hell by an angel named Castiel, he and his brother learn that Lilith is attempting to break a series of seals that will release Lucifer from his cage and bring about the Apocalypse; and complicating matters are the angels, who demand that the Winchesters follow their orders if they are to be a part of the fight. The serial storytelling is especially well-done and extraordinarily compelling. But, as intense and dark as the main arc gets, the show still manages to deliver several lighthearted, comedic episodes; including "Monster Movie," "Wishful Thinking," and "The Monster at the End of the Book." Misha Collins joins the cast as the recurring character Castiel and brings a new energy to the show. And, Genevieve Cortese takes over as a new incarnation of Ruby, giving an interesting interpretation of the character. Additionally, the writers do an impressive job at incorporating the Angel and Apocalypse mythologies into the show. Incredibly exciting and full of thrills, Season 4 of Supernatural is ambitious and takes the series in a daring direction.
