"Dad wants us to pick up where he left off. Saving people. Hunting things. The family business."Supernatural is an American paranormal/horror show based around a Monster of the Week structure topped off with an over-reaching arc, while simultaneously retaining humor through various means of Leaning on the Fourth Wall. It follows Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki), two brothers who hunt creatures based on Urban Legends, Classical Mythology, and Abrahamic theology.The first season featured the brothers searching for their missing father, but, for the most part, the series features them Walking the Earth as they travel from town to town◊ in search of supernatural problems to solve. Though the Big Bads get bigger each season, it's more common that Dean and Sam already have their hands full with each other. It uses a diverse score of classic rock songs that feature heavily throughout, to encapsulate the gritty rock-and-roll life they lead, and features Dean's 1967 Chevy Impala as almost another character.Other main characters include Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver), father figure and Knowledge Broker to the main characters, and Castiel (Misha Collins), an angel that enters in the fourth season. More information about them, as well as the show's stable of recurring characters, can be found on the character sheet.It originally aired on The WB, but moved to The CW after the WB folded.Famous for three main things:
- The ridiculously attractive cast.
- The sheer amount of Mood Whiplash it has.
- How it raised torturing its two leads (emotionally and physically) to a fetishistic art-form.
