    Looking good, just out of interest is this the last season?

    They are not planning it to be.

    CW's president Mark Pedowitz said about the 8th season;



    Apparently at the Supernatural NJ Convention last month, Padalecki revealed that he and Ackles intend to continue with the series into it its tenth season if The CW continues to renew the show.

    Previously series showrunner, Jeremy Carver talked about his goal of creating a story-arc that would lead Supernatural to the end in season 10.

    I guess it possible that two strong seasons and they may continue past the tenth.

    I wasn't totally taken with season 7, lacked that spark for me. The cliffhanger was also a bit ...m'eh. It was a familar premise just a new location ! Still, happy to watch season 8 but I prefer a story arc throughout a season rather than the monster of the week type episodes.

    I have only seen up to S4 so far (have up to S6 on blu ray) but would like it to end on a high with proper tied up story lines. I don't want it to see it drag out and then cancelled due to ratings with no ending. After so many years, fans will deserve better.

    Episode 1: We ‬Need ‬to ‬Talk ‬About ‬Kevin

    Strong start, nice to still have Crowley around. Now what really happened to Cas.

    Interesting opener setting up the arc. I feel this has matured quite nicely over the years though it has been a bumpy ride in places

    Episode 2: What's Up, Tiger Mommy?

    Good episode with flashbacks to Purgatory troubles, and also trying to get the tablet in present day

    Not bad at all, hope we don't see
    Crowley for a while as although I like his appearances the effects of him being an all evil being is diminishing in my eyes and becoming more of a comedic character

    "It's not like its my first tattoo" classic

    Episode 3: Heartache

    Another episode directed by Jensen Ackles (Dean), and his dad Alan Ackles, cameo'd (below)

    A monster-of-the-week episode, and it was ok, not great, but still enjoyed it.

    Episode 5: Blood Brothers

    Another solid episode as Dean teams up with Benny for a vampire hunt. Great flashbacks in Purgatory as the trio tackled Leviathans. Whilst Sam dreams of fixing air-con units.

    Seemed to be bit of a theme over the last two weeks I though that not all monsters were evil

    Yes.

    Maybe all the good monsters (squad) will unite and join Sam & Dean in the final battle :D

    Episode 6: Southern Comfort

    Pretty gory (off-screen) episode, as a few people of the town are turning into killers. And Garth is the new Bobby.

    A good arc episode thought and Crowley actually came across as menacing. Loving the prophets mum & the special guest at the end

    I stopped watching at s4 a few years back. Think it was when it ended on ITV2. Never seen it since.

    Used to be one of my fave tv shows back then.

    At the time i'm sure S5 was planned to be the end but then along came S6, then 7 and now it's on 8!

    Debating whether to start watching again but wondering if the standards are still as high as the early seasons..

    Trip down memory lane:laugh:

    Episode 7: A Little Slice of Kevin

    Solid episode, and a cameo by;
    Amanda Tapping (Sanctuary, Stargate) in a heavenly role

    Decided i couldn't wait a year! So, currently watching Season 8. Only seen 4 so far but i'm guessing the above is a typo, i guess you mean Episode 7 rai?
    8 is not shown until 28/11.

    Thanks for the spoiler tags too, was too scared to look here in case i see something!! :smashin:

    Season 5 was great and if it ended there, it would have been a good send off. Season 6 was a bit clunky imho and a weaker season with some occasional highlights. Season 7 however was back on track and I can't wait for Season 8 to come to the UK.

    I heard a rumour that if there was still interest in Supernatural, the cast would like to see out a tenth season and end it properly there, we'll see.

    Really liked that as a side story with some interesting character introspection

    Episode 8: Hunteri Heroici

    Dean bought a gun to a gag fight, and no sign of Roger Wabbit




    Episode 9: Citizen Fang (mid-season finale)

    I prefer Dean and Benny together

    Is it just me or do Supernatural do daft episodes better than anyone else?? Loved Ep 8 with the Looney Tunes theme, comedy gold!
    Going to watch 9 tonight, when does the series resume Rai?

    Cheers.

    Yeah, and the episode where they went to the 'real life' show and ripped into themselves albeit in Sam and Dean mode.
    'Jensen, Jarod,Misha does no-one have normal names?' class episode too :laugh:
