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.

A couple comes home from their first date and they start eating each other.
Sam and Dean are posing as FBI agents. Russell survived for a while, but Alice was dead. When they were found, Russell was still chewing on Alice.
Another couple kills themselves. Sam notices something about a guy in a suit leaving the scene. Sam discovers something on the remains of the bodies. They find some Enochian seals on the heart, kind of like the ones Cass put on theirs. Dean calls Cass and Cass appears in the morgue instantly. Dean wasn’t expecting that. It was pretty funny.
Cass says that they are Angelic signs and they are a mark of union, meaning that these people were intended to mate. Cass says that it’s the work of the Cherubim, a lower class of angels. A Cupid has gone rogue.
At a restaurant, they find a Cupid. He’s pudgy and naked. When confronted, he starts to cry. Cass reads his mind and confirms that he’s telling the truth. The Cupid reveals that they interfered with their parents so that they fell in love. It was destined to be that Dean and Sam were born.
Dean has been acting strange. He punches the Cupid and he disappears.
The coroner shows him another strange dead. Some guy went on a Twinkie binge and died. Sam sees the same strange man and follows him. There’s something up with him. It’s a demon and Sam could smell him. The demon blood on his blade makes Sam act strange. It’s like he’s tempted to drink it.
Inside the briefcase of the demon, they find a human soul. Cass appears. He’s eating. This is a clue. The town is suffering from starvation, Famine.
While Cass is speaking about Famine, we see an old man in a wheelchair arrive in restaurant. He looks week but he’s getting stronger. He must devour the souls of his victims. Lucifer must have sent his demons to care for Famine in order to prepare him to march across the land.
Sam is suffering from the demon blood hunger. He asks Dean to lock him down before he leaves to cut off Famine’s ring. Dean learns that the coroner is dead. He drank himself to death. His soul hasn’t been harvested so they lie in wait for the demons. They follow them.
Demons come for Sam but they don’t know what they are dealing with. Sam is all over the place and drinks their blood. He uses his demon powers to throw around his enemies.
Dean lets Cass go in by himself. Nothing happens so he goes in too. He finds Cass eating some red meat. His host body has developed an addiction to him. Dean gets punched out.
For some reason, Dean is unaffected by the hunger. Famine touches him. He says that Dean isn’t hungry because inside, he’s already dead. Sam arrives and he uses his powers to exorcise all of the demons. He doesn’t eat them. Famine eats them instead. Dean has got the knife now. Sam pulls out the demon souls from inside Famine. It rips him apart.
Dean and Cass have to help Sam detox again from demon blood. Dean goes outside and prays. He needs some help.
