Your Next Box Set: Supernatural
On the lookout for a new boxset to spend your evenings devouring? Each week, hmv.com will be recommending you a series that you will have wishing those cold nights would go for a good while longer…
This week, we recommend Supernatural, which has just been renewed for a 10th season, you’ve got a lot to catch up on…
What it is?
The basic premise of Supernatural is this, our heroes are two brothers who must follow in their father’s footsteps as hunters, hunters charged with protecting humanity and those they love from all kinds of nasty types, including monsters, demons and gods that pop up all over the world. It’s part family drama, part procedural, all awesome.
Who’s in it?
Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki stars as the brothers Winchester, with Jeffrey Dean Morgan appearing occasionally as their father. There are numerous guest stars, with the likes of Misha Collins, Samantha Ferris, Tahmoh Penikett, Adrianne Palicki, Jake Abel, Felicia Day and Amber Benson all turning up at one time or another.
Why should I watch it?
The classic line that people attach to Game Of Thrones, Battlestar Galactica and Fringe doesn’t apply here, this is sci-fi and fantasy made for fans of those genres, it doesn’t try to appease any mass markets, which is probably why it’s been able to continue for such a long time.
Describe the show in three words…
Spooky, fantastical, swoon….
