The second season
of 'Supernatural' continues at a breakneck speed as it heads to a dramatic
After the success
of 'Buffy the Vampire Slayer', 'Charmed' and 'Angel', the idea behind 'Supernatural'
was to be their natural successor and the show has stepped into the boots
and filled them. Taking a more serious approach to the supernatural, ancient
folklore and everything that goes bump in the night. The approach of the show
was to make you jump and induce a feeling of real fear and foreboding. This
is a show that doesn't always have a happy ending as Sam and Dean struggle
with the loss of their father and the Demon that is pulling them apart and
determined to bring about Hell on Earth. Because of this, the show has grown
a devote fan base that love the show and its whole approach.
The main reason for
the success of the show is the quality of the performances of the two lead
actors, Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles. While many show rely on a large
ensemble to create storylines and drive the drama of the programme, 'Supernatural'
takes the same approach as the early seasons of the 'X-Files', with the two
lead characters travelling to investigate strange phenomena but all the time
there is an underlying plot that drives the entire season and one that has
a dramatic conclusion. This puts a large emphasis on the two leading actors,
as they have to drive the show onwards and the good news is that Jared Padalecki
and Jensen Ackles continue to rise to the challenge.
The second half of
the season sees the 'Demon' story escalate and come to a dramatic and traumatic
conclusion. This is still the main emphasis of the second season and the driving
force of the entire series up until now. This is the demon that took both
Dean and Sam's mother and father, as well as Sam's girlfriend and is slowly
transforming Sam into something more powerful than either of them can imagine.
While the plotline continues to run through the season, always in the background
even during the stand-alone episodes as Sam struggles to cope with his new
powers. The stand-alone episodes themselves are very good however with 'Roadkill',
'Folsom Prison Blues' and 'Heart', all which give Jared Padalecki and Jensen
Ackles the chance to shine in their roles.
The second season
of 'Supernatural' continues the momentum of the first and takes it one step
further. By concluding the 'Demon' plotline but opening up a whole new one,
the show has grown and evolved into something that can continue for many a
season and continue to entertain and scare you every season.
