Supernatural Season Nine Blu-ray Review

By   Sep 11, 2014 12:10 PM EST
The boys are back for season 9 in the very successful series, Supernatural, on the CW. With Season 10 waiting in wings, Warner Bros. has  brought season 9 to Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD, so everyone can catch up on the Winchesters before the new season starts.

Last time we visited the world of Supernatural in season 8, the angel Metatron (Curtis Armstrong; Revenge of The Nerds, Risky Business), tricked Castiel  (Misha Collins; 24) into having all the angels fall to earth and loose their wings.  Season 9 picks up directly where season 8 left off. The Winchesters are left to get back on their feet from their trials and tribulations, and help fix the mess that is left on earth. Returning with Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) are fan favorites Castiel, Crowley (Mark Sheppard; Battlestar Galactica), Charlie Bradbury (Felicia Day; Buffy The Vampire Slayer, Dollhouse) as well as newcomer Tahmoh Penikett (Battlestar Galactica, Dollhouse)

While Supernatural was originally conceived by creator Eric Kripke (Revolution) to be just a five season arc, fans and the mighty dollar allowed Supernatural to stretch far beyond that, and even though some seasons were "some pretty useless cannon fodder", Season 8 started the rebirth which and then continued into Season 9 and has now put the show back on top.  Aside from the occasional one off episodes dealing with a "creature of the week", the boys are back to doing what they do best -- battling angels and demons and making the world a better place for mankind to live.

Some standout episodes of season 9 included "Slumber Party" starting Felicia Day, "First Born" starring Timothy Omundson,  "Bloodlines", the backdoor pilot that unfortunately failed to catch on, and the season finale "Do You Believe in Miracles?" which just leaves the entire series on a cliffhanger that came out of left field. The surprise ending does what it is supposed to do and  leaves you wanting to come back for more.

As with most recent Warner Bros television releases, Supernatural season 9 is pure eye candy. The picture has zero artifacts and whencombined with the DTS-MA audio track makes for a truly enjoyable viewing experience. Supernatural has never appeared so good as it has this season.

Aside from the usual digital Ultraviolet copy (still keeping fingers cross they come back to their senses and support iTunes again) the Blu-ray set boasts a tour of the Men of Letters bunker, as well the 2013 Comic Con panel, gag reels, and a behind the scenes look from a Supernatural fans perspective.
Although Supernatural and the past few seasons have lost the classic rock soundtrack due to budget cuts. This season truly stands as testament that you can't keep a good Winchester down.

Supernatural is set to return to The CW for Season 10 on Tuesday, October 7, 2014 at 9 PM.   I suggest getting the season 9 Blu-ray and having another look  before Dean and Sam return for what I hope will be another great year.

Supernatural: The Complete Thirteenth Season Physical Media: Blu-ray Review
Supernatural Season Thirteen brought us some new characters, some old, and some brought back from the dead.  It brought us an alternate world and showed us power so supreme that we can only wonder how the writers, producers, and directors will top it.

One glaring omission from this year's Supernatural is the use of classic rock ‘n roll that has become almost a character on the show.

Supernatural Season Ten Physical Media: Blu-ray Review
Now entering it’s 11th season, Supernatural, by this time, is critic proof. Saying that, I really still enjoyed Season 10 of the show, and it’s presentation on Blu-ray Combo Pack is top notch. Supernatural still probably has another 2-3 years before it has stayed out it’s welcome.
