Product Description


How's this for a story arc: the Gates of Hell are opened, unleashing both Lucifer himself and the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, and bringing to an end civilization as we know it. That's what awaits fans of Supernatural in its fifth and most epic season to date. The stumbles in plot or character that are typical to most long-running series are largely missing from this season (though some might consider the stunt casting of Paris Hilton as a pagan goddess in "Hammer of the Gods" as such); instead, there's a solid, complex, and entirely satisfying run of episodes, and even a pair of series highlights in "Changing Channels" and "The Real Ghostbusters." The former finds heroes Sam and Dean (Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki) trapped in a TV-influenced netherworld populated by perverse small-screen archetypes, while the latter is a clever bit of meta-fiction involving a real ghost at a Supernatural fan convention, complete with Winchester brothers look-alikes. The other 20 episodes bounce between stand-alone adventures and the larger story at hand, which finds the brothers racing to collect the rings of the Four Horsemen, which will return Lucifer to his prison. This is fantasy storytelling for television at its best--broad in scope and heavy with special effects, but never forgetting that the core of the show is the relationship between Sam and Dean and their joint quest to rid the world of evil. Both are well represented here in a season that brings the show's main story line to its fitting and satisfying conclusion.

Fans should also be pleased with most of the extras on the six-disc set for Season 5. The most ambitious feature is the Apocalypse Survival Guide, hosted by Bobby Singer (Jim Beaver). Presented as a tour through Bobby's house, the guide gives viewers a detailed lowdown on the major players in the war against Satan, including the Horsemen, various demons, and the Man in Red himself. Navigating one's way through the interactive videos can be a challenge, as the layout requires viewers to constantly restart the disc in order to review certain videos, but for sheer informational content, it's hard to beat. Also present is a commentary track by series creator Eric Kripke (who left the series at the end of this season) and writer Ben Edlund on "The End," which required such elaborate sets that the show earned its own back lot; said location also gets a once-over, as does an unaired scene from "The Real Ghostbusters." Best of all is perhaps the entire web series Ghostfacers, which pokes much-needed fun at the reality show Ghost Hunters in addition to providing some minor scares. --Paul Gaita

5.0 out of 5 stars As awesome as it gets Oct. 7 2010
By Vicjak
The Winchester brothers are back with a punch and a mission...will they succeed? This season is insanely good. This show never stops amazing me, it just keeps getting better with each season. The characters evolve, the plot thickens and the drama explodes from all sides! Great buy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loving Dean and Sam. Aug. 9 2014

I thought this was a great season.There was a lot of humorous scenes. The bottom line is I like this show so much I still watch old reruns. I have season 1 to 6. I plan on ordering right up to last season when it becomes available. When you get tired of some of the new shows that lack any good content it's good to watch something time honored. M.Marr.

3.0 out of 5 stars Going Downhill Oct. 11 2010
I've been an avid fan of Supernatural throughout it's five seasons, so understand how greatly it pains me to say this.

Definitely not the best season. There were one or two pretty good episodes, but the rest were just a waste of time. We were promised the brothers would reconnect, and they didn't, not really, not when you compare them to the first seasons. They spend most of this season building up to an epic battle between good and evil- and, well, they fall a little short considering the build up. But the core values remain mostly intact- family doesn't end in blood, and blood isn't always a good enough reason to trust.

Character development is essential to any long lasting series. Unfortunately, we see a severe dwindling of the characters we have come to love so much. And plots- wow. Where do I start? Dean aging in a card game? Come on! Sam practically begging to be trusted again- but doing nothing to prove it? About the only decent character development is Castiel's fall from grace. That's actually pretty funny to watch- especially when he gets drunk ;) And really- Kripke should stop making fun of his fans- we keep the show going, buddy :)

I do have to say, though, that the season finale was... well, EPIC! I seriously could have walked away from this series feeling content that things had been wrapped up about as well as they could have been. Kripke had a clear plan, and he followed it. I really, really, wish they had ended the series with this, so I could write: it's probably one of the best series finales I've ever seen!

Unfortunately, they didn't, and as creator Eric Kripke stepped down from the throne of show runner, Sera Gamble stepped up to take on season 6, and has thus far failed- miserably.

Best tv showing ever in history of my generation!! Most tv shows losses my interest after 2nd or 3rd seasons in. But not supernatural, 9seasons in and Im still hungry for more. Can't wait for season 10 to start already.

This one was by far my favourite. In my opinion, the show hasn't been able to live up to this season since.
