TV show review time!

Okay so last night I started from the beginning and watched the first episode. The one that started it all for me. The one that sucked me in and kept me hanging in for 5 seasons and mayhaps a 6th season...

First episode is called Pilot original but needless to say da truth.

It starts off with a happy family you know the kind wife holding a young boy going into the nursery to say goodnight to another baby in the crib. Father (played by Jeffrey Dean Morgan) comes in and they are all smiles and laughing. Based on the show's name *Supernatural* you can only guess this isn't going to end well...

Sure enough we see the mom waking up due to baby crying when she walks into the nursery a shadow of man is standing over the crib but does she think anything about it no. Why? B/c she assumes its hubby. Then the lights flicker (memo to me when lights flicker its not a good sign!) Anywho she discovers it isn't dad and races upstairs when we hear a scream that wakes dad up from downstairs when he gets to the nursery though nothing is happening. Until he notices blood dripping on the baby when he looks up he discovers Mom is on the ceiling! HOLY CRAP... she's bleeding from the stomach and hanging on the ceiling she is mouthing something but before we can hear her she catches on fire.

Before you can blink dad hands baby to a four year old Dean and tells him to run. Finally dad joins them as they watch their house and mom go up in flames.

Flash forward to the baby all grown up at 22 (played by Jared Padalecki) and a sexy woman in a nursing outfit wanting to know why he isn't dressed. (For the record Supernatural does not lack sexy men or women) Anyway they are at a bar drinking and we learn that Sam has a law interview on Monday b/c his LSATS were amazingly high.

Next we see Sam in bed with Jessica (sexy nurse) and we hear someone breaking in. A fight ensues and who should it be but a grown up version of Dean (played by a sexy Jensen Ackles) The fight wakes up Jess and Dean has the following conversation.

Dean Winchester: [to Jessica] Anyway, I gotta borrow your boyfriend here, talk about some private family business. Nice meeting you.
Sam Winchester: No. No, whatever you want to say, you can say it in front of her.
Dean Winchester: Okay. Uhm, dad hasn't been home in a few days.
Sam Winchester: So he's working overtime on a Miller time shift. He'll stumble back in sooner or later.
Dean Winchester: Dad's on a hunting trip... and he hasn't been home in a few days.
Sam Winchester: Jess, excuse us. We have to go outside.

Sam walks outside to see what's up and wonders why Dean wasn't on the hunting trip with Dad.

Sam Winchester: Dad let you go on a hunting trip by yourself?
Dean Winchester: I'm 26, dude.
Classic Dean. Okay moving on.

Dean suckers Sam into joining him on the search for dad.

Enter new scene with a sexy dark haired woman in a white dress on the side of the road. A man talking to his girlfriend hangs up and pulls over to the woman. She talks him into giving her a ride and by talks I mean she asked and he thought with his other head so he said yes.

PS. Creepy ass pretty woman on the side of the road is not going to end well. Pretty girls like that don't end up on the side of the road and ask for rides. SO DON'T TAKE THEM UP ON IT.

Needless to say they end up on a bridge and lots of blood is spilled while boy is screaming so see PS if you need more clarification as to what happened.

Okay Enter the boys at a gas station:
Sam Winchester: Dude, you gotta update your cassette tape collection.
Dean Winchester: Why?
Sam Winchester: Well, for one, they are cassette tapes. And two, Black Sabbath, Motorhead, Metallica... its the greatest hits of mullet rock.
Dean Winchester: House rules, Sammy. Driver picks the music. Shotgun shuts his cake hole.
Sam Winchester: Sammy is a chubby 12 year old. It's Sam okay.
Dean Winchester: Sorry, cant hear you. The music's too loud.

Part of why I love this show so much is the dialogue between the two characters. They have a real connection with each other and its great watching the interactions.

NERD MOMENT: My God Jensen is freakin hawt OMG I heart him...nerd moment over

*clears throat* anywho boys end up on bridge where they talk about an empty car and leads them to the girlfriend of the missing boy (who picked up the sexy chick on the side of the road that is now missing)

Enter urban legend about a mysterious woman who picks up men on the highway and they are never heard from again. To drive home the point Enter scary ass ghost shows herself on the bridge at night while da boys are looking for her. She takes possession of the car and tries to run them over. Dean ends up in a muddy bank and apparently spells like a toliet.

So they go for a hotel room where they learn their dad had checked in there earlier and left all his research. Enter breaking into dad's room. there they discover the Urban Legend of the Lady in White. (we don't learn the legend until later when Sam discusses it with the man married to the lady so we will skip that if you are interested watch the show)

Alright so Dean and Sam have a moment which Dean breaks b/c he tells Sam no chick flicks which ends in this convo that they have used all seasons its a little fun thing they do...

Sam Winchester: Alright jerk
Dean Winchester: Bitch.

Very cute. Anywho the police track down Dean and arrest him for acting like a US Marshal. While in jail Dean is giving Dad's journal that he NEVER leaves anywhere. In the journal is a note for Dean.

While Dean's in Jail Sam goes and interviews the woman's husband and fills him in on the legend which of course pisses the man straight off. Then Sam calls in a shots fired to clear out the station giving Dean a chance to escape.

Enter Sam hitting the ghost as he is heading toward the home to burn the bones (Oh yeah they burn alot of bones which means digging up a lot of dead bodies.) Okay so anyway no more spoilers needless to say the ending was way cool had a nice twist and the boys won.

Okay as far as grades go:
A = scary
A = story line

Lesson Learned in this episode: Flickering lights BAD but scary ghost children worse!!!
