So we're re-watching Supernatural with our eldest, have finished season 1, and nearly at the end of season 2.

This is still a very good show. The character interplay between Sam and Dean is wonderful and allows for some great comedic relief. The backstory arc is excellent, but even standalone episodes are great for their folkloric realism. The biggest strength, however, is that in both the backstory and individual episodes, it is always a human story being told and remains the focus, regardless of everything else.

Looking forward to starting season 3. :)

One of my favourite scenes, caution scene contains fluff and stuffing.
You can really sympathise with the cry against the universe at the end.

Yep. I've watched it since the beginning and still love it, although I think I missed series 9 somehow - it was being shown on Sky Living then it just seemed to disappear, and I noticed series 10 in the listings for E4 a few weeks back. Glad it's back though, and still enjoying it 10 years down the line.:)

What's strange is that I recognised Meg as soon as she appeared in Season 1. But in Season 3, I didn't recognise the allied demon at all - which just happens to be Lauren from Arrow!

Awesome show, makes me want to go to a back water American bar and get a large Bourbon and a cold bottle of Coors chaser.

The brothers relationship is the making of the show and it's just a joy to watch.

Huh, I don't remember seeing her in it, but it was a long time ago. I wonder how many more folks that have gone on to bigger series have also made early appearances in Supernatural? I'd bet there's quite a few.
Slightly lateral to topic: Just saw something on the web about actors who early on in their careers had roles in The X-Files and it included Mark Sheppard (Crowley) and Mark Pellegrino (Lucifer). I liked their interaction in the last episode, and hope they get to share a few scenes in future episodes.

I'm watching Supernatural for the first time around (been binging on Netflix). I've just started the 3rd season now.

I've never been a horror fan since I'm too much of a pansy, but I've been warming up to it more these last couple of years. Supernatural isn't too scary because you know the main characters will keep coming back.

Character development is a real strength of the show. Dean and Sam's relationship and loyalty to each other is central even as their world seems to fall apart. The story arcs are pretty tight, with even small details recurring in different episodes. The entire series seems very well planned and executed.
