“Supernatural” is one of the most amazing and popular series in the whole world, it first started as an idea with the Erick Kripke who spent almost 10 years developing it and working on it to eventually become one of the rare series that have been running for more than a decade with more than 200 episodes and people keep on falling in love with it with every new season. For a series to reach 12 seasons and more than 200 episodes and it is still running and there are no rumors that it will end anytime soon, It should be one of the best series of all time for sure!
So let’s see what are some of the reasons that make “supernatural” series one of the best shows of all time:
- Always Fresh and Exciting:
One of the best things about this series is that it always brings new fresh exciting content and stories that get you hooked and make you want to watch more and more. It is true that you keep seeing some characters in every season but despite that, each season is new and comes up with a whole new story which is simply incredible.
There are a lot of shows out there but at the end most of them fall into the category of boring because they fail to bring something new, who would want to keep watching the same story with the same characters again and again with nothing to make it interesting and more exciting?
That’s what makes the supernatural series different because it has more than 200 episodes and 12 seasons, it first started with the two brothers Sam and Dean that we keep seeing in almost every episode and we are just not ready to say goodbye to either one of them. Imagine millions of people watching more than 200 episodes of the same series? It is not an easy thing to do because that series must be quite special, exciting and always bring new fresh content to keep all of these people watching it and asking for more of it which is what the “supernatural” series is.
Another thing that gives the supernatural series a spot among the best is the fact that it includes in it almost all genres from fantasy to horror, drama, romance...Whatever your ask for the supernatural series has it for you that’s what makes it always exciting to watch and you will never get bored of it.
- The Series is Surreal:
One of the things that I personally love about this series is that it is almost real, the personalities of the characters and how the series is filmed makes you want to believe that it is real especially in that episode when the Winchester brothers find themselves in another world as actors and they actually live their real everyday lives, after that they realize that they have travelled into another dimension.
Doesn’t that episode makes you want to believe too that there is another world similar to ours where you can become one of the Winchesters!!
- The Family is The Ultimate Power and Good Will Always Win:
Since the supernatural series started, it was all about family. The brothers and their father were always there for each other and none of them hesitated any time to sacrifice themselves in order to save a member of their family. This show also showcases how the two brothers’ personalities are different and how they have the same problems that a lot of people can relate to but when it comes to helping and saving each other or other people, they put all of those differences aside and do what they have to do.
Almost every horror movie or series is about how good always beat evil at the end and supernatural is not an exception, but what makes this show different is how the brothers are almost fighting evil every single day, how they are putting their lives on the line to save other people that they don’t know anything about. It is a quite tiring thing to do and the characters don’t hesitate to show the impact of their lifestyle on them and how they wish more often to become just a normal family with a house, wife and kids but still they don’t hesitate to put all those dreams aside for the greater good of the humanity.
These 2 characteristics made lot of people fall in love with this series because after each season you found yourself empowered to help as many people as you can, maybe you don’t have to fight vampires, wendigos or any other fictional characters and you don’t have to fight with a gun or a knife but you can always find your own way to help people in need.
- Smart Fictional Characters:
Don’t you just hate it when you want to watch a horror movie and you realize that the fictional characters in it are just so stupid or they have many characteristics that make them unbelievable like vampires who glow like diamonds in the sun or can fly without wings and let’s not even talk about werewolves, they are one of my favorite fictional characters ever but I get so frustrated when I watch a movie or a series where a werewolf can fully turn and become like an actual wolf; I know they are not real but that just doesn’t make sense!
Let it to supernatural to give you the best fictional characters you can ever ask for which is again one of the reasons that make people love this series! They use fictional characters that we already saw in several other movies and in different plots and books but they make them much more interesting and make you love them even though they are dangerous and I know for sure that many supernatural fans wish that some of those characters are real!! (I’m one of them).
- Dean and Sam Winchester:
I don’t know how anyone can watch supernatural and not fall in love with either Sam or Dean, we love them both but you can’t help that strong feeling that pulls you towards one of them more than the other!
There is Dean, the funny guy who is in love with his Chevrolet Impala Sport Coupe, a funny and a charming guy who turns the most serious situations into funny ones not to mention that he is also a good cook and he the type of guy that complement himself most of the time but next to his funny side he is the older brother that had to man up and give up his childhood to take care of his little brother from young age and let’s not forget that he sold his soul to a demon to get his brother back, isn’t that charming ladies!
On the other hand, there is the famous Sam Winchester a serious guy with an amazing charming personality but he is a bit shy when it comes to ladies. He is also known for his love of reading and his knowledge; he is quite sensitive because he always felt as burden on his father and brother who always wanted to protect him and he had a lot of insecurities because he felt unloved by his father so he decided to live a normal life and abandon the supernatural world by going to college but quickly find himself back in that world after his father goes missing and his girlfriend Jessica gets killed by the same demon who killed his mother.
These two characters are icons in the world of cinema and are one of the main reason that make people fall in love with this series, because each brother has his own personality, problems and insecurities that lot of people can relate to and the supernatural series is showcasing that in their journey and how they always put their conflicts and differences to save each other.
What many supernatural fans might not know is that the character of castiel was not going to last long in the series, but again superfans had to it!! They kept asking and demanding that castiel stays and that’s how the series went and how castiel became one of the most important characters in the series!
Castiel or as Sam and Dean call him Cass is known as the angel that went on and beyond to help the Winchester brothers save the world and defeat their enemies, his famous signature is his famous trench coat that he wears almost all the time!
You can’t talk about the supernatural series without talking about Crowley, that famous demon who is also the king of hell!! When he is not helping the Winchester brothers take down Lucifer or Amara the god’s sister or other creature that threaten his throne, you’ll find him fighting with them and trying to kill them!
Crowley is one of the rare demons in TV that you will actually fall in love with and you will hate to see him leave the show even though he is trying from time to time to Kill Sam and Dean!
- Gabriel, The Trickster God:
Let’s face it, although Gabriel is not a permanent character in the show, he only comes out every once in a while his episodes are one of the best. Don’t you just like it when Dean and Sam get stuck in his fictional world!! He is quite the trickster and prankster!! And his character is one of the funniest and most entertaining characters in the whole series! It is so sad that we don’t get to see him anymore because Lucifer killed him, but who knows the supernatural team never fail to surprise us!
- The Cast is a True Family:
Everybody knows that if the cast of any series or film are not good and comfortable with each other, they won’t be able to play their characters well and we won’t be able to feel them as well. This is something that the “supernatural” beat everybody at, the relationship between the cast and the team of the supernatural series is quite amazing and it is really nice to see them having fun in behind the scenes and actually enjoying and loving what they do. Not to mention that it is also very nice to read what Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) says about each other!
"We have spent probably more time with each other than with any other human on the planet over the past 10 years. I've learned a lot from him, and he is a brother, on and off screen. We'll forever have a friendship that is a lot different than most because of what we've gone through together. It's been an amazing ride, and I'm glad we're still chugging through together."
— Says Jensen Ackles aka Dean Winchester
"I would be doing it a disservice to try to put into words what I've been through with Jensen. We've more than grown up together. We went from single 20-somethings to fathers, husbands, and it's hard to quantify in a few short sentences exactly what all that encompasses."
— Says Jared Padalecki aka Sam Winchester
It is really nice to see these two actors saying these things about each other especially since they play the role of two brothers in the supernatural series and you can swear that they are real brothers!
- Emotional Roller Coaster Ride:
Whenever you watch a movie or a series that you like, you find yourself in it and sometimes you even imagine yourself as one of the characters in it and the supernatural series is one of those series that makes you feel like you’re a part of it, you feel hurt when one of the characters gets hurt, you laugh and become happy when they are and you find yourself crying when one of them dies or something happens to him/her. There are millions of series and movies out there that you can watch, but not all of them can make you feel like that, so when a series like supernatural take you on a very long journey for almost 12 years and it never fail to make you feel for the characters and become excited to watch them in almost 247 episodes, it deserves to be among the top ten series of all time.
- Carry On Wayward Son by Kansas:
One of the main reasons that will make you watch supernatural series if you aren’t already watching it is the theme song “Carry on Wayward Son” by Kansas. This is one f the most iconic theme songs ever, you can find amazing series to watch by their theme songs might not be the best. From the music to the high notes and lyrics, this theme song is a killer and I don’t think there is another song that will be a good fit for the supernatural series!! They were made of each other!
Carry on my wayward son
There'll be peace when you are done
Lay your weary head to rest
Don't you cry no more
Once I rose above the noise and confusion
Just to get a glimpse beyond this illusion
I was soaring ever higher, but I flew too high
Though my eyes could see I still was a blind man
Though my mind could think I still was a mad man
I hear the voices when I'm dreaming,
I can hear them say
Masquerading as a man with a reason
My charade is the event of the season
And if I claim to be a wise man,
Well, it surely means that I don't know
On a stormy sea of moving emotion
Tossed about, I'm like a ship on the ocean
I set a course for winds of fortune,
But I hear the voices say
With the supernatural series, you get the whole package, amazing characters and actors, incredible story that keeps you hooked up and dying to know what is going to happen in the next episode or season, it is addicting indeed!! After 12 years of success Supernatural is still going on and on and according to recent interviews with the cast of the movie, the end is not near!! Personally I wouldn’t be surprised If the series went until Sam and Dean Winchester reaches their 60s or 70s for its going to be a fun and exciting journey that all of the superfans will be excited to see it and grow with it as well!
These are the 11 reasons that in my opinion make the supernatural series one of the best series all of all time, don’t hesitate to share with us your own opinion and why you think supernatural is the best!
