Supernatural tells the story of Sam and Dean, who are hunters. They hunt demons. This is because their mom was killed by a demon. This season, the boys discover more about their past. In the last season finale, Dean was sent straight to hell by Lilith. He had sold his soul to save Sam.
The plot of the series has evolved over time, beginning initially with the Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean, looking for their father throughout most of season one. Once they find him, the show becomes about killing Azazel, the yellow-eyed demon responsible for the death of their mother. This is accomplished, but not until after Azazel’s plans are completed and a door to Hell is opened, although only momentarily, releasing a horde of demons into the world. This event also sees the death of Sam, who is subsequently resurrected by Dean selling his soul at the end of season two. In the third season, the plot of the show focuses on trying to save Dean from his deal. Along the way, they meet a demon named Ruby, who has an interest in Sam and claims to be able to help save Dean, as well as Bela Talbot, an “acquirer” and seller of occult objects who is constantly a thorn in their side. The brothers eventually manage to track down the demon who holds Dean’s contract, a powerhouse named Lilith who also wants Sam dead. However, Sam and Ruby ultimately fail to save Dean, who is killed and sent to Hell. Season four begins with Dean, miraculously returning from Hell, awakening dazed and confused in a grave. He was apparently rescued by a supposed angel named Castiel on orders from God. Sam on the other hand, has further developed his abilities with the help of Ruby during the months that Dean has been dead. It is soon revealed that Dean was revived to help stop Lilith’s plan of breaking the 66 seals, which would let Lucifer walk free once again. As the series continues, Dean learns of Sam’s newfound ability to excercise demons using his psychic abilities. They have a heated argument, where Dean confesses to Sam: “Cas told me, if I dont stop you, he will. That means God does not want you doing what you are doing Sammy.” [From wiki]
I don’t really remember what made me stop watching this show, but a friend was extolling its virtues and I watched the fourth season premiere with her. Actually, I do remember. I really got tired of the repetitiveness of the episodes. This seems to have changed drastically since the last few seasons though. Supernatural has matured into a really good show, with its own flavor and great plots. The plot for season 4 is really good and I’m glad to see God involved.
I’ve watched and reviewed all of season 4, but I have yet to post it. If there is any interest, I will do so. There are a couple of shows which I have watched for which I haven’t posted anything yet. Those include Royal Pains and In Treatment season 2. I’m sure there are others.
Warning: spoilers ahead.

Season 5 started pretty much the same as when season 4 ended. Lilith and Ruby are dead. Sam hastened the Apocalypse and Dean couldn’t stop him. The season starter was a bit lowkey. Nothing big really happened. Oh, but then again, Lucifer is walking on Earth! It’s the End Times and Lucifer has to find a vessel. In the end of the episode he does so.
Sam has been angelically detoxed of his demon blood addiction. Things are resolved between him and Dean yet. Sam chose a demon over his brother, and Dean can’t deal with that. I thought this was a good episode. I was expecting to see Hell on Earth, but I guess that they will draw this whole thing out. It hasn’t been confirmed if this would be the last Supernatural season. There is a possibility of a sixth. My guess is that it all depends on how well this season does, which is why it was picked up for a 6th season.

Some dead guy crawls out of a tomb. He kills his killer (?).
Sam and Dean are posing as feds in Sioux Falls. Another guy saw a dead guy kill another. Clay Thompson died 5 years ago. Benny killed Clay in a hunting accident. Clay came back from the dead to get some payback. They run into the Sheriff. It turns out that the Sheriff knows Bobby. She recognizes his voice. She wants them to stop.
The guys come see Bobby, who’s mysterious about what he’s been doing. He says that a bunch of guys wanted Benny dead, so it’s a non-starter. Dean decides to check out the cemetery any way. They dig into the grave and find it empty.
They find Clay Thompson. He’s dead and confesses to killing Clay. Outside the house, they run into the Sheriff, who promptly arrests Dean and Sam. They see her talking with Bobby. He tells them that the dead started rising 5 days ago. He lied to them. They find Bobby’s wife around his house. It’s his dead wife Karen. They aren’t zombies and they don’t react to any of the usual suspects. He had her cremated. About 20 people rose from the dead. The omens were the lightning storms. It’s Death and another Horseman of the Apocalypse.
Later, Dean comes to see Karen. She’s been baking pies compulsively since she came back from the dead. She also doesn’t sleep. She says that she remembers everything, about the demon possessing her and taking over. Bobby had no choice in smoking her.
Meanwhile, Sam visits the newly risen dead. Sam kills one of the dead people. When they go back to see Bobby, he pulls a gun on them. He tells them to leave his property. He’ll deal with Karen if she turns.
The Sheriff’s zombie son is about to turn. He decides to eat his dad. The Sheriff discovers him eating his brains, or something like that. He’s about to go postal on her. Sam arrives to save her just in time. He says that the only way to put him down is with a headshot. Sam takes care of the boy.
Dean decides to go hunt Karen. Bobby finds his zombie wife burning up. She says that she is turning. He should kill her. When she came back, there was a man at the grave. He was very thin. He had a message for Bobby.
Dean arrives and hears the shot from Bobby’s gun. He took out his wife. The zombies start attacking while they get ready to go into town.
Sam mobilizes the remaining people in town. He arrives just in time with the Sheriff to save Bobby and Dean from the zombies.
Bobby tells the boys that Death came for him. He brought Karen back for a reason. It was a hit on him.
