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 guy bought a vintage Porsche. He is killed by it. The Winchesters are on the case. They’ve been looking for the Colt for 3 weeks without finding anything. They arrive in Canton, Ohio.

The car vanished in 1970. Dean wants to check the VIN number on the engine block. He does a rubbing of it. Sam does some research. It turns out that it isn’t the real Little Bastard, just a fake one.
Someone else breathes out fumes just like Cal. A man gets killed by Abe Lincoln. He died from a gunshot wound in the head. There was no gun and no gunpowder. The maid says that Abe Lincoln killed the professor.
In Jim’s video, they see a flash of James Dean. Prof Hill was a civil war nut. Two super-famous super-pissed ghosts killed off their super-fans. This leads them to the wax museum. They have a James Dean and an Abe Lincoln. The curator uses some of the personal belongings of the famous figures. He’s working on a new collection.
Sam is alone and one of the ghosts is after him. It’s Gandhi. Dean arrives and torches Gandhi’s bifocals. The next morning, Sam thinks that something strange about the whole thing.

This isn’t over. Paris Hilton took a girl. Sam goes back to the bodies and the evidence. He says that there was blood loss and seeds in their bellies. The seeds are from a forest in the Balkans. The forest was guarded by a pagan god named Leshii. He would feed on the blood of his followers and fill their bellies with seeds. The forest doesn’t exist anymore. In order to kill him, they need to chop his head off with an iron axe. They find the girl. She’s barely alive. Then Paris Hilton arrives and knocks them out cold. Paris Hilton is busy sharpening her tools. She’s actually sharpening her nails. She has been wandering for years. Since the Apocalypse was triggered, she’s changed her MO. Dean tackles her when she tries to get to the axe, which belonged to their father. She would become him and be able to kill him. Sam gets free and chops off her head.
Sam and Dean talk and they come to an agreement. Sam thinks that they should grab onto whatever is in front of them and fight it till the end, and go down fighting. But they need to do it on an equal footing. Dean asks Sam to drive the Impala.
