Supernatural Season 3

***DISCLAIMER*** The following review is entirely my opinion. If you comment (which I encourage you to do) be respectful. If you don't agree with my opinion, that's fine. To each their own. I am just sharing my opinions and perspective. Finally, the reviews are given on a scale of 1-5. 1, of course, being terrible. 2, being not great. 3, being okay. 4, being good and 5, being epic!

Supernatural Season 3 - 5 out of 5

This season came sadly close to losing an entire point as it was hurt by the inclusion of some very annoyingly generic characters and the writer's strike causing it to be only sixteen episodes and not the usual twenty-two. The affect the writer's strike had on this show also showed more than just the number of episodes as the peril Dean was in felt rushed and wasn't properly allowed to evolve. This season, we see the inclusion of two new re-occurring female characters as Dean tries to get as much hunting in as he can before his contract with the devil is up. These characters are a demon (who acts as a ally) named Ruby and a thief who goes by Bela. These two characters are nearly 100% identical in the way the actresses portray them. The only difference is Bela has a British accent. Both are generic, saucy ladies who are the poorly acted, female version of Dean. The even bigger atrocity in this season is a bunch another, one shot demon character is introduce and acts, once again, just like Bela and Ruby. This just smacks of lazy writing, poor casting and terrible acting. However, the only reason I didn't give this season a 4 (which would have hurt to do because I've become quite a fan of this show) is the show's awesome season finale and some really fun episodes in between the main story arc that include the return of the Trickster and an EPIC Christmas episode where Sam and Dean take on some Pagan Gods. Despite some hangups that occurred this season, this show still has two great lead characters who guide us, the viewer, through some dark and fun stories filled with some of the best use of classic rock music you will ever seen in a TV show or in any media. I look forward to starting season 4.
