'Supernatural - The Complete Tenth Season'
(Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, et al / 6-Disc DVD / NR / 2015 / Warner Bros.)
Overview: The thrilling and terrifying journey of Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles) continues as 'SUPERNATURAL' enters its tenth season.
DVD Verdict: Well, in the show's ninth season, our lads' supernatural hunting expedition led them directly into two brand-new power struggles: the first involving the King of Hell and a Demon Knight after his throne; the second centering on an unbalanced angel who's taken over Heaven and exiled legions of volatile angels down to Earth. With the help of their protectors - the fallen angel Castiel (Misha Collins) and "devil-you-know" Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard) - Sam and Dean's lifelong quest to set the world right will take everything they've got - and a wee bit more!
For those wanting a little bit more info on the guys, Sam and Dean are contrasting characters. Sam is the younger brother of Dean. He is calm, innocent and good-hearted. But, some situations make him the bad guy. Dean is the cool one, he kicks back on the couch with a beer in one hand and a hot chick in the other hand and seemingly doesn't give a damn if the world ends or not. He is the guy who takes the risks. They con people, do credit card scams and cheat at pool to pay for their food and shelter.
But despite their differences, the brothers have an unbreakable bond between them and they will fight till death for the safety of each other. 'Safety' being not going to hell after they die. This is what makes them so great, their chemistry is there for everyone to see.
I hope I'm not giving too much away here, as these facts were revealed in the very first season, after all, but Dean is a vessel of archangel Michael and Sam is the vessel of the fallen angel, Lucifer. So, now every demon hunter in the country want Sam dead, before he can accept Lucifer's offer to take over Sam's body. There are also many allies for the brothers as the series continues.
This is a very different show from others as it deals with a different demon every episode and the main story also continues. You never get bored as the special effects are awesome and even the actors who play the demons are very good.
Here in the 10th season, when the unthinkable happens to Dean (no spoilers now, though!), the Winchesters must find a way to make things right before it's too late. And yet, even now, with the pressure ramped up quite like never before on the show, the two guys still manage to debate who is hotter, swap theories on life like they are attempting to do so for the very first time together, throw cute little one-liners back and forth at each other, and yet end up being in the right place at the right time - just, sometimes!
'Supernatural' really has gripped the world. Whether you watch it for the guys, for the humor, for the paranormal insight, for the laughter, for the suspense, or just for the amazing story lines, 'Supernatural' is the best there is to see in this genre - take it from me!
