Synopsis by Hal Erickson
A joint effort of filmmakers McG, Eric Kripke, and Robert Singer, the weekly, hour-long series Supernatural starred Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki as Dean and Sam Winchester, the sons of a dogged and determined "spook hunter." Since the death of his wife at the hands of malevolent poltergeists, the elder Winchester refused to rest until he tracked down and vanquished all evil paranormal forces in the world. While older son Dean willingly followed in his dad's footsteps, the young Sam was the rebel of the family, refusing to have anything to with the supernatural and putting as much distance between himself and his father and brother as possible. But when his dad mysteriously vanished, Sam reluctantly teamed with Dean to carry on the family mission. Piling into their 1967 Chevy Impala, the Winchester boys tooled around the country investigating such familiar paranormal mythology, folklore, and urban legends as the Vanishing Hitchhiker, Bloody Mary, the Lover's Lane "Hook" Killer, and the Native American demon Wendigo, among many others. Essentially a male version of Buffy the Vampire Slayer -- with a few dashes of Scooby-Doo, The Hardy Boys, and Route 66 tossed in -- Supernatural was seen on Buffy's former home network the WB beginning September 13, 2005.
