Summary: This television drama is about the two Winchester brothers, Sam and Dean, who were raised by their father, John, to hunt and kill all things that go "bump in the night" after his wife, Mary, was murdered by an evil supernatural being when the boys were young. 22 years later the brothers set out on a journey, fighting evil along the way, to find their recently missing father who, when they finally meet up with, reveals he knows what killed their mother, a demon, and has found a way to track and kill it. Meanwhile, Sam starts to develop frightening abilities that include death visions, visions of people dying before it actually happens. These visions are somehow connected to the demon who murdered his mother and its mysterious plans that seem to be all about Sam. When their father dies striking a deal with the very same devil that had killed his wife, the brothers, now alone and without their mentor, are determined to finish the crusade their father started. But disturbing revelations about Sam's part in the demon's apocalyptic plans are presented when John's dying last words to Dean are revealed.
Sam and Dean Winchester are (still) on a mission from God—or so they think. At the time of the writing of this updated review, the two brothers have been hunting devils, demons and all manner of preternatural beasties for a solid 11 seasons—a near eternity in television terms. Because in this CW world, demons will always lurk behind every bush, always be on the lookout to corrupt more souls and destroy more worlds and just make everything a literal living hell. That's where Sam and Dean fit in. They're apparently the only two humanoids standing between Earth and the fiery circles of Hades. They're almost like heaven's human hit men, dealing with terra firma's muck and grime so the angels don't have to sully themselves. It ultimately doesn't help much, though. Sure, God's minions are generally the good guys. But sometimes we see indications that those who reside in the heavenly realm are just as petty and duplicitous as the folks down here, prone to jealousy and anger and not above triggering the occasional celestial civil war. And Sam and Dean (using every last bit of the knowledge they gleaned from modeling school) sometimes have to give these almighty beings a bit of a talking to. You know, to straighten out their priorities.
