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.

Our story starts in an insane asylum. Some inmate named Susan isn’t taking her medication. She’s got some monster plaguing her. No one believes her as she’s a schizophrenic. That night, something gets her. They find her with her wrists slit.
Sam and Dean arrive. They tell the truth to get committed. The doc has them held for a few days. A nurse delights in giving them a rectal exam. Sam convinced Dean to come, as a favor to Martin, who was a good hunter. He’s also been committed and a friend of their father.
Martin doesn’t know what it is. They’ve had 5 deaths in the last few months, which look like suicide. The doc thinks that Sam and Dean’s relationship is a little co-dependent, so they’ll be in different groups for therapy.
You know what else isn’t good for us, it’s a monster eating all of our faces.
Dean’s doc is hot. She wants to know about his father.
I just got raped, so no, I’m not OK.
That night, they prowl around just in time to find Ed getting hanged by something. They examine the body and find some strange marks on his neck. It looks like something sucked his brain out. Well, something was done to his brain. His brain was sucked dry.
Some of the inmates drew a Harlequin clown. Martin thinks that they are facing a wraith. The bad news is that wraiths can pass as humans. A mirror will show the wraith’s true form. Silver hurts him. The hospital is the perfect hunting ground.
The wraith is the Dr. Fuller. Martin can’t help them. Sam goes after Fuller, but Martin stops him just in time. Fuller is back to the real Fuller. The wraith changed shapes. They restrain Sam and give him some drugs.
It turns out that Dean has been hallucinating the hot doc. She tells him that she isn’t real. He’s really going crazy. Dean is seeing wraiths everywhere.
Fuller comes to see Sam. He makes him seem almost inhuman. It looks like the loony bin is making the Winchesters crazy. Sam arrives in the day room and starts hallucinating. He knocks a guard down and they pounce on him.
Crazy is the clue, that’s what Dean tells Martin. Dean now thinks that Wendy is the wraith. She kissed both Sam and Dean. They find her body and see the nurse that gave them the rectal exam. She’s the nurse. She’s fast and blames them for the death.
She goes to Sam and is about to feast on him when Dean arrives. He breaks off her stinger and kills her with the silver-plated knife. The alarm sounds. They leave.
Sam says that he is angry at everything. He says that the rage is in him.
