Fans of spooky television should be familiar enough with Eric Kripke’s Supernatural, which stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as the demon and monster-hunting Sam and Dean Winchester—two brothers with a strong liking for dishing out punishment to paranormal creatures that threaten our worldly peace. [firstpara] The show has been on the boob tube since 2005, and just last Monday, March 8, AXN debuted its 5th season, which sees the demon god himself, Lucifer on the brink of switching the apocalypse switch to on. The rest of the season will be shown on AXN Beyond every Monday, 11 PM.
Lately, there have been a lot of movies talking about the impending doom of civilization, as we know it. And in Supernatural’s 5th season, that all-too-familiar doomsday is about to happen all over again.
At the end of last season, we saw Sam Winchester purge the demon Lilith, who conveniently happened to be the last of the 66 seals that kept Lucifer at bay.
Now that the seal is broken, all hell is about to break loose. Supernatural’s 5th season is where all the cliffhangers and the questions will finally get their answers, and where we will finally see whether the forces of hell will finally triumph.
Although a 6th season has already been announced, this 5th season is actually Eric Kripke’s (the series creator) final one, so we can expect that he won’t be holding anything back.
You can bet your bottom dollar that the battle between angels and demons are going to be more explosive than your stomach after a hearty Persian dinner.
Sounds pretty epic, right? Especially for just a television series. But other than the show’s upcoming massive showdown between heaven and hell, we also like Supernatural for its humorous aspects that help balance out the heavy drama and horror.
Compelling though those elements may be, the show’s sprinkling of a little lightheartedness on the sides has kept the series from getting stale and boring.
Lucifer is indeed a scary foe, but wait ‘til you get a load of the most remorseless tooth fairy the television world has ever seen, who’s out to extract every single tooth from everyone.
Now, that’s good TV.
