Thoughts On Supernatural Spin Off

Updated on May 1, 2014

Supernatural Fans Out There?

It took about five or six seasons for me to get into Supernatural, but once I gave it a chance and I had a very long December where I seemed to never see sunlight, I watched the however many seasons it took, and caught up just in time for the new season to start. And ever since I've been hooked. I've come to love the characters and feel for them, cry with them when it's super intense and laugh at how they don't take themselves too seriously all of the time.

This review of the episode will have spoilers so if you haven't seen it, don't continue to read and come back once you've seen it.

Supernatural: Bloodlines

This past Tuesday Supernatural aired an episode to introduce the backdoor pilot episode of the spin off CW is trying to start called Supernatural: Bloodlines. It's based in Chicago where there's evidently a mafia style monster cohabitation happening in the city where each set of monster families run a section of Chicago.

Vampires, Werewolves, Shapeshifters, oh my!

It starts off with Ennis out to dinner with his girlfriend and he's trying to propose to her, and while he's trying to do that, the exclusive monster lounge is getting clawed up, the attacker runs outside to finish off one that stumbled out and throw's Ennis' girlfriend against a metal door and instantly kills her. (Sounds familiar?)

Throughout the episode we learn of a bunch of new characters and honestly the saving grace was having Dean and Sam in the episode because otherwise I feel it would have fell very flat otherwise.

Supernatural: Bloodlines Characters

  • Ennis - He just seemed really young and I honestly don't feel like he has the right look for a hunter. Maybe it's because I'm comparing him to Dean and Sam and they've been doing their roles for years, but what's just how I feel.
  • Margo - the actress is so overdramatic and is trying way too hard, plus she opens her mouth too much when she forms her words.
  • David - I actually liked his character. I think he should have been casted as the lead because he looks good in the hunter look alike clothing he wore during the episode. He's a bit of a smartass and always shoots back with witty remarks and I can appreciate that.
  • Julian - Reminds me of Christian Bale in American Psycho, but he's trying too hard.
  • Violet - She reminded me of Bella Swan for the majority of the episode until the very end, and I'm not a fan of Bella Swan. All of that exaggerated panting for no reason. Plus she uses her eyes too much I feel, always looking around, it's a bit much.
  • Sal - his acting was the best and I'm pissed they killed off his character in the first ten minutes.

Supernatural: Bloodlines Thoughts

I really wanted to like the spin off concept, I really did, but I felt like the majority of the acting was very forced, the concept wasn't that great, it was very cliche' with the rivalry between groups in the big city, and it touched on the continual Daddy Issues Dean and Sam faced for several seasons.

I was really glad that Dean was the one to say "Godfather with Fangs" because that just showed how ridiculous the premise was. There's so many monster shows out there as it is and to add another one on without any known characters will not bode well. Plus I'm pretty sure once Dean and Sam got the Metatron situation handled, they could fix the monster problem in Chicago in about a week.

I think it would have been better if they had used existing characters that were already known to the fans, like having a spin off with Krissy or Charlie's own adventure that she's currently having. When I first heard that they were doing a spin off I had heard that Jody Mills' character would be the lead and I was excited for that. I really don't think this series will survive.

Supernatural Forever!

Sam and Dean Winchester have won our hearts over the years and it's very hard to see anybody trying to replace them. They've been renewed for a 10th season (WOW). And was it just me but did it break your heart a little when Sam was trying to tell Ennis at the end of the episode to not get into the life because you will never get out? His face, omg.


What did you think of the backdoor episode? I would love to hear what you have to say.

      I completely agree. See that episode would have been a perfect backdoor pilot for a spin off.

      I love Supernatural but not sure about this spin off idea. If they were going to do one I'd prefer to see it around Jodi, especially after the most recent episode with the young girl she's taken in.
