Supernatural - Sam and Dean Winchester
How it all started - WINCHESTER BROTHERS
23 years ago Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) lost their mother because of the mysterious and demonic supernatural force. Their father raised them as soldiers. He taught them everything about the paranormal evil that exists in the dark corners and on the remote roads of America ... he taught them how to kill it.
So begins my favorite series. I'm a big fan and I have seen all the seasons including this last, which recently started. It got my attention from episode one with its very specific theme ( I am a big fan of paranormal,mystical and obscure), of course their good looks is one of the reasons and very subtle dose of humor.
Supernatural - all seasons!
WHAT'S THE SHOW ABOUT? - Who loves to watch ghosts and other creatures should watch this show!
Followed with bloody tragedies on their dangerous and supernatural mission, brothers Sam and Dean Winchester travel from the Colorado wilderness to Nebraska plains all the way to the lake in Wisconsin, and on this journey they meet creatures that many believe to exist only in legend, superstition and nightmares. On All Saints Day, 1983, when Sam was an infant, and his elder brother Dean was 4 years old, their mother Mary was brutally murdered. Their father John came home to see a horrible sight : his wife Mary ripped and nailed to the ceiling, bleeding onto the cradle, in which was Sam. A moment later, Mary was in flames and John unsuccessfully tried to save her. After the clairvoyant revealed to John that for the death of his wife was guilty a demon, he becomes obsessed with a desire to find that demon and avenge his wife. John has taught his sons how to recognize and how to cope with the supernatural and the brothers became experienced fighters against demons and other supernatural creatures.
Sam Winchester tried really hard to escape the grimmy family history. Unlike his older brother Dean, Sam rejected their father's insane quest to uncover the evil forces that took the life of their mother. he tried to put as much distance as he could from his family. After high school he left home and went to college, In his new life has entered a beautiful girl, and he planned to study Law at Stanford University. However, things didn't go the way he envisioned them. His brother will return to his life. He asks him for a favor ( their father went missing), Sam helps him, but when he returned home he found horrible sight. His girlfriend was on the ceiling in the same position as his mother. After the death of his girlfriend, he joined his brother in search of the killer. And so the show begins.
I like this series because of the original approach to the supernatural world. The acting is good, and the whole series is filled with very specific humor that characterize main actors Jared Padalecki (Sam) and Jensen Ackles (Dean). Main characters, who come from the line of ''HUNTERS'' on supernatural creatures, are fighting various supernatural beings. Of course they are always winning with persistence, purity of heart and a positive attitude. They fall into many temptations, doubts and suspicions, but somehow manage to fight against all the trouble and with a smile on their faces. They get out of darkness as winners. There is a new way to interpret the existence of angels, demons, heaven and hell. Episodes last about 45 minutes, which is with the dynamics very commendable. I recommend it to everyone who loves the supernatural.
A QUICK QUESTION AND THEN WE CONTINUE - Take a deep breath and think about this very important question :)))

A LITTLE SOMETHING ABOUT CASTIEL
Castiel is an angel who pulled Dean from Hell. He helps brothers in their fight against evil. He possesses all sorts of powers, including the power to kill demons with his touch.
Castiel shows very little emotions, almost none. But as time goes by he will start to express hesitance, regret, anger and affection towards Dean.
He became the ''new God'', and at that time he was being very strict and arrogant. Castile is one of my favorite characters. He possesses this kind of humor that he isn't aware of.
Season seven ends with him and Dean ending up in Purgatory. There he is chased from all kinds of monsters - angel in purgatory sounds very tempting. But still his main goal is to help Dean to get out of there. Eventually he succeeds.
