As flat and robotic as the show may be, a teen "X-Files" meets "Red Eye" is likely to pull in high ratings.
As unimaginative as its title.
Leaden, predictable and, at times, unintentionally funny.
Genre fans used to the emotional depth and extraordinary storytelling of "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Angel" will find that this show is not even remotely in "Buffy's" or "Angel's" league.
A perfectly serviceable if not particularly inspired bumper.
The creep factor runs high, and it had better in a series called "Supernatural." But the series also has its overly familiar and just-plain-silly moments.
The stars are appealing WB veterans, but it is hard to believe that subsequent episodes will carry the same edge as the premiere. "Supernatural" is not "The Sixth Sense," it's "Ghostbusters' Creek."
There isn't much in "Supernatural" to engage viewers older than Sam and Dean, but it's certainly not the worst of the new troop of spookers.
It is a well-made little show of horrors that's likely to scare and thrill its target audience.
It's a romp and a half.
"Supernatural" plays like a high-octane B-flick. You could be mildly ashamed at how much you like it.
A loud, believably unbelievable ghost story, a different ghost from classic lore guest-starring each week.
Of all the season's new dark-arts adventures, WB's aptly if generically named Supernatural may be the simplest and the scariest.... It wants nothing more than to frighten you -- and tonight, it does.
Ackles and Padalecki are good-looking, yes, get to drive a '67 Chevy and will undoubtedly run into a lot of really hot women in peril, but "Supernatural" works. It's just serious enough, just hip enough and, as advertised, more scary than imagined.
A creepy, atmospheric, sometimes downright scary hour of TV.
"Supernatural" is unlike anything else out there and should build a following among viewers who appreciate its combination of spooky mythology and mystery adventure.
It's likely to startle you the way no show has since The X-Files.
Padalecki and Ackles are hunky, funny and a joy to watch.
This creepy storytelling carries extra punch because the drama has an excellent, easy-to-root-for cast.
Supernatural's shortcomings could have been mitigated were its plotlines authentically scary.
These brothers are like most WB stars and starlets, pretty faces with negligible theatrical skills.
