As flat and robotic as the show may be, a teen "X-Files" meets "Red Eye" is likely to pull in high ratings.

Matthew Gilbert
Boston Globe

As unimaginative as its title.

David Hinckley
New York Daily News

Leaden, predictable and, at times, unintentionally funny.

Maureen Ryan
Chicago Tribune

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.

Brian Lowry

A perfectly serviceable if not particularly inspired bumper.

Mark Dawidziak
Cleveland Plain Dealer

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.

Alessandra Stanley
The New York Times

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."

Tom Shales
Washington Post

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.

Rob Owen
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

It is a well-made little show of horrors that's likely to scare and thrill its target audience.

Diane Werts

It's a romp and a half.

Melanie McFarland
Seattle Post-Intelligencer

"Supernatural" plays like a high-octane B-flick. You could be mildly ashamed at how much you like it.

Paul Brownfield
Los Angeles Times

A loud, believably unbelievable ghost story, a different ghost from classic lore guest-starring each week.

Robert Bianco
USA Today

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.

Tim Goodman
San Francisco Chronicle

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.

Charlie McCollum
San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times

A creepy, atmospheric, sometimes downright scary hour of TV.

Barry Garron
The Hollywood Reporter

"Supernatural" is unlike anything else out there and should build a following among viewers who appreciate its combination of spooky mythology and mystery adventure.

Jonathan Storm
Philadelphia Inquirer

It's likely to startle you the way no show has since The X-Files.

Glenn Garvin
Miami Herald

Padalecki and Ackles are hunky, funny and a joy to watch.

Hal Boedeker
Orlando Sentinel

This creepy storytelling carries extra punch because the drama has an excellent, easy-to-root-for cast.

Eric Neigher
Slant Magazine

Supernatural's shortcomings could have been mitigated were its plotlines authentically scary.

Aaron Barnhart
Kansas City Star

These brothers are like most WB stars and starlets, pretty faces with negligible theatrical skills.
