I'm currently watching this show, up to Season 6 so far, and it really got bad in this season. Does it get any better, or do they just keep recycling the things we've seen before? Also, souless Sam was annoying and all over the place.
Well considering I have only seen bits and pieces of the show, and that I am unusually nitpicky and cynical about some stuff. Take this with a bucket of salt.
That show looks preeeeeetty awful. All the way through. I really can't find anything nice to say. Sorry <3
I've watched all the episodes so far and I really liked the first few seasons since it was just a monster of the week kind of show with some funny dialog/gags. They then started this whole Angels vs Demons, God vs the Devil, and the Apocalypse stuff and it just isn't as good anymore. But then they'll sprinkle some random episode into the season that has nothing to do with that storyline and those are pretty good (like the one where they get sent to some alternate world where they are the actors filming the show, but as Dean and Sam).
My wife likes it, but I tapped out at the end of Season 5. That felt like the logical conclusion. Season 8 so far has been hit and miss but it's pretty decent. 6 and 7 were pretty middling though.
To be honest I think she watches it just for Dean. She once said, and I quote, "He's fucking hot."
My friend put it well. After season five it's "The Continuing Adventures of Sam and Dean" Five wrapped up everything so well so lets find out what happened after. I still enjoy watching it. It just got picked up for another season. I'm not sure it needs another season but I'll keep watching it.
I absolutely adored the show up until season 5. I still really like the new seasons, and it could end up being really really epic if they wrap around to the end of season five with Lucifer and Michael somehow escaping the box. The problem for me with the show after season five wasn't that they weren't any good, just that they couldn't get anymore epic then dealing with Satan himself. I mean what's more menacing, Satan or the mother of all creatures...?
I watch it sometimes. I prefer the standalone mythology-based episodes rather than the expansive story arcs they often do. I thought it took a massive dive when they introduced angels and all that.
That said, my sister's been watching the latest series, and every time I catch it, I enjoy it more than I have previous series.
I'm a big fan of the original story arc. The first five seasons all felt really good together. (Season 4 is probably my overall favorite, if I had to choose.) The biggest complaint I have about Season 6 was how the writers seemed to have forgotten how to write for Dean. He just feels so out of character all the time from what I've seen. I haven't seen season 7 or 8 yet.
