TV - Supernatural Season 6 Top 5


Steve Taylor-Bryant delves into the unknown as he breaks down twelve seasons of Supernatural into 12 Top 5 articles.  His top 5 from season six...

I'll be honest from the outset and tell you I really struggled putting together this list. Not because, as with previous seasons, there is much too choose from, no. I disliked most of season 6. I can't tell you why as I can't work it out myself but some of it just feels like they all stopped trying. Maybe it was because they put their all into an astonishing fifth season believing it was their last, maybe they picked the wrong creative team to drive it forward, maybe it's because whatever came after season five was going to underwhelm. There was nothing wholeheartedly awful but it was just okay, no better than fine, and I found myself wondering if maybe the idea had been taken as far as it could go. I wasn't left with a feeling of awe like previous years and I felt no excitement at continuing into season 7, however I also didn't feel I'd wasted my time. It was just okay television with a couple of high points but nothing like the televisual experience I had become accustomed to. That being said, when I rewatched the season for this list (by the way the only season I have needed to rewatch to grab five standout episodes) I did find some storytelling and humour I glossed over or missed on the first viewing. For what it's worth my season 6 top 5...
