Yeah, this show has its faults, but it is one of the best offerings of the genre on TV and it's very entertaining. Hopefully it'll last. Night Stalker wasn't very good, and alas it is cancelled!!

More like, "YAY! It's cancelled!". It really didn't deserve to continue.

I really enjoyed the "Supernatural" episode with Amy Acker. I've tried to stay tuned to this show, but I keep forgetting what day/time it is on. Interesting premise and it always looks cool. Plus, that black car the brothers cruise in is pretty slick.

Amy Acker. In a bathtub.

How did this series compare to something like X-Files? Is it worth picking up when it hits DVD?

Sort of the same, but not as "serious" as X-Files. It has scary as well as funny moments like X, but the tone is a bit different. I think it's worth picking up! I am taping them every week and putting them on DVD-R.

And workshed, the same episode is on 2 times a week. Tuesday and Sunday.

And this week's episode was the worst piece of shit so far!! Not only were they trying for TCM, but it was totally out of place in the context of the series, and the script... I just have to say the scriptwriter is a FUCKING moron. What a joke!! The cop trusts him, she goes into the place without backup, the gun jams out of the blue. I can't say enough about how much I hated this episode!

It's funny. For a second there I thought I was watching TCM, then I remembered I was watching Supernatural. I didn't mind the story, or that it was a change from the rest of the serie's storylines, sometimes it's a good idea to get away from the "monster of the week" concept.

I'm just not too happy with the cop's character. She just didn't really bring much to the story. Just seemed like the "woman-of-the-week". Plus she seemed pretty damn stupid.

Oh well. Not the worst I've seen, but not the best either. They really need to start focusing on the main mystery of what killed their mom rather than each ep being stand alone. The show could get a little tired if they keep as they're going right now.

Yeah, the cop is definitely the biggest problem with the story!! It's looks like next episode will get back to the main mystery again!

Supernatural is one of the best TV shows I have ever watched. It is a huge relief to watch a TV horror show that is actually creepy and at time scary.

It still a show I really love, but it is hit or miss whether it's a good episode. Most of the time it is good, and it's better than most of the stuff on TV nowadays!!

I wish we knew what The CW is going to do with the various UPN and WB shows. This has done well, but we really have no idea what that network is going for. The uncertainty hanging over shows like this one that I like is really bothering me.

The season finale was this past week Pat. The show kept getting better and better. Out of a 22 episode season, I'd say there were about 3 stinkers, but all in all, I loved the show. I am a bit pissed it ended in a cliffhanger, but that's par for the course with most series today and it's not like I'm not coming back for season 2!!
