Supernatural, a long-running, action-packed CW dark fantasy drama starring Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as brothers (and Hunters) Sam and Dean. Together, they travel across the country in a classic 1967 Chevy Impala, hunting monsters and solving strange, potentially supernatural cases in order to rid the world of evil, one demon, ghost, or vampire at a time.
In addition to its familiar mix of monster of the week narratives and broader story arcs, Supernatural, like Buffy, boasts a pleasant mix of comedy and horror, with plenty of cultural references and a sprawling plot of its own. legends and mythology. Throughout the series, as our Hunters battle everything from sadistic demons and psychopathic angels to creepy clowns and powerful Leviathan-run corporations, we also watch them deal with their complicated relationship with their father, see Sam struggle with mental illness, and witness them go to hell and come back one after the other—sometimes literally.
Admittedly, the show has received well-deserved criticism on many issues, including the mistreatment of various female characters (via Study breaks) — but that doesn’t mean there aren’t formidable (and emotionally layered) women everywhere, including the ruthless witch Rowena (Ruth Connell) and the plucky hacker-turned-hunter Charlie (Felicia Day).
In addition, many Reddit users such as u/Legend246888 as well as U / Kiring, even took to the forum to talk about how they would love a Buffy-Supernatural crossover. And we have to say, it’s really sad that we’ll never see that day.
