Despite crippling budget cuts, Supernatural delivers yet another major success! The emotional roller coaster that is season 4 grips the viewer and draws them in.
The newer plots revolve around the angels, and their plans for the Winchester Boys, creating a fascinating and undeniably fantastic story arc.
Kripke proves he is a master when it comes to keeping the fans happy while still carefully maneuvering around a very delicate subject as the boys struggle to find their faith.
While this season has it's fair share of humorous and somewhat boring individual episodes, tiny amounts of story lines are offered out, leading to a big payoff!
We also see as Dean struggles with his time in hell, and Sam struggles between two worlds and two loyalties.
The relationship between the brothers is strained, to say the least, and we begin to see the effects of the boys not being a united front.
If I had one complaint about this season, it would be because the angst factor, while still strong, isn't quite what it used to be and we see the boys drifting apart despite Dean's ultimate sacrifice. I think the writers could have played a little more with what they'd built up, tied off some of those loose ends.
Still, every Thursday night I'm in front of the TV watching season 5 on the CW. Thus far, I'm not expecting to deliver a very flattering review for season 5, but it's only about half way in- we'll see.
