The prize: ending the Apocalypse. The price: Sam’s life. Season 5’s horrific finale left Dean alone, as Sam descended into Hell. Now a different man, Dean vows to stop hunting and devote himself to building a family with Lisa and her son Ben. Then, mysteriously, Sam reappears, drawing Dean back into the old life. But Sam’s a different man too. He’s returned without his soul. How the Winchesters confront this greatest challenge yet to their powerful bond is the troubled heart – and soul – of the profound and thrilling 5-Disc, 22-Episode Season 6. As the brothers struggle to reunite, they must also battle deadly supernatural forces. Demons. Angels. Vampires. Shapeshifters. And a terrifying new foe called the Mother of All.
Season six of the fantasy-horror-drama series Supernatural continues its almost perverse streak of setting the bar at the end of each season so impossibly high that its successor could never surpass the roadblocks in its path, only to leap over them with the same amount of aplomb, wit, and complexity the program has shown throughout its network run. When audiences last saw the Winchester brothers at the end of season five, Dean (Jensen Ackles) had abandoned hunting demons in favor of family life, while Sam (Jared Padalecki) had apparently lost his battle with Lucifer in the season finale. But as season six reveals, Sam is alive and well, though missing a soul, which makes his subsequent hunts with a reluctant Dean merciless and focused on a plan not entirely understood by either man. As the brothers grapple with shape-shifting infants ("Two and a Half Men"), vampires (the unfortunately titled "Live Free or TwiHard"), leprechauns (Robert Picardo in "Clap Your Hands If You Believe…"), horror icon H.P. Lovecraft ("Let It Bleed"), and a variety of homegrown monstrosities, they discover that Sam's soul is in the possession of the demon Crowley (Mark Sheppard), who is using it to manipulate Sam into locating the souls of Purgatory, which could turn the tide of a civil war raging in Heaven towards Crowley and renegade angel Castiel (Misha Collins). The Winchesters must then stop the infernal duo's scheme before an even greater apocalypse can occur. With such high stakes and grim fates hanging in the balance, it's a wonder that Supernatural can spare a moment for its trademark quirky humor, but such episodes as "The French Mistake," where the brothers arrive in an alternate reality where they assume the identity of Ackles and Padalecki, or the aforementioned "Two and a Half Men," display the producers' knack for combining the lighthearted with the show's trademark depth and darkness. Most impressively, the season sets up Supernatural for a seventh go-round that promises--yet again--to top its predecessors.
Extras are again substantive and plentiful, with "Jensen Ackles: A Director's Journey" focusing on the actor's debut as helmer on "Weekend at Bobby's," perhaps the most interesting of the lot, with plenty of behind-the-scenes footage and interviews with cast and crew. Somewhat weightier in tone and content is "Soul Chasers: Supernatural and the Quest for the Soul," which explores the concept of the soul from religious and philosophical perspectives. Writers and executive producers Sara Gamble, Ben Edlund, and Bob Singer are featured on commentary tracks for "Clap Your Hands" and "The French Mistake," while the latter is covered in collections of alternate takes and outtakes and a stand-alone blooper reel. Two episodes of Warner Bros. Japan's Supernatural: The Anime series, both featuring Padalecki and Ackles as the voices of Sam and Dean, bring the set to a satisfying conclusion. --Paul Gaita

I have thoroughly enjoyed this series...Jared (Sam) & Jensen (Dean) are completely perfect for their roles ~ I almost can believe they would be brothers in real life. I especially enjoy the humor between the two main characters...yet, when they are angry or disappointed with each other, I can completely believe it.
The special effects are excellent, the acting (by everyone involved) is way above par. There is so much in this series ~ much more than one would expect from a TV show ~ I can't even begin to go there...
Being my age (65) I can remember "way back when" the lack of quality to a TV series ~ canned laughter, etc. ~ this show is among the best as far as I'm concerned...it keeps me engrossed from beginning to end...so much so that I hate to turn it off when it's time to move on with my day!
One of my favorite features is the ongoing variety of fantastical characters. So many I would have to watch from beginning to end once again, just to remember them all...
Right now my only complaint is that, even though I have bought every season on my Amazon Prime watch list, I can't make up my mind if I want to go ahead & order the DVD set as well.
And as for the writing, there are so many great episodes in this season that it leaves me speechless. For example there's Two and a half men, the third man, frontierland, weekend at bobby's, like a virgin, death at samarrah, you can't handle the truth, clap your hands if you believe, unforgiven, the man who would be king, mommy dearest, my heart will go on, the french mistake. the man who knew too much, and caged heat, are all great episodes. And I'm pretty sure there are some other good ones that I'm forgetting in there too.
And the funny thing is I am not a horror fan at all. I never like to watch scary movies and I am a hopeless Jane Austen/Bronte fan where I love to re-watch old classics. Don't get me wrong, I love action/super hero movies also, and artsy stuff like Coraline, Stardust, and Nightmare Before Christmas. But still, the fact that I would put down Jane Austen or the Bronte movies in a heartbeat and put in Supernatural instead shows how great this show is. It took someone who didn't like that genre, and makes them like that genre.
The story line for this season is good, but in my opinion not as "stakes are so high" story-lines as season 2, 3, 4, and 5. In fact I felt that this season took the story to a more personal importance, along the lines of season 1 and 3 as opposed to "oh no the world is coming to an end, we have to figure out a way to stop it!" Season 1 was trying to figure out where the brothers stood in terms of fighting the yellow-eyed demon, and season 3 was Sam trying to find a way to save his brother Dean from going to hell, and I felt the same type of personal urgency from this season as those two seasons.
This time Dean has to save Sam (spoiler alert!) by finding his soul. Sam is a walking, empty husk with no soul inside, but also an emotionless, uncaring psychopath who will do anything to finish a "job" - even risking the life of his own brother Dean. So you can imagine how much personal conflicts arise with this predicament and how many times the show can get really emotional. However, at the same time I have to say that this season was also the funniest season.
For example, looking at the "The French Mistake" episode, (where the brothers go to an alternate reality where they find they are only actors named Jensen/ Jared who only act like they are killing monsters and there are no real monsters, demons, or angels) where the two brothers spend nearly 5 minutes doing a take on a scene over and over again, which was handled brilliantly by Jensen/ Jared. The two actors acted so well that they didn't know how to act that it was believable and kept me laughing for the duration of the scene. I haven't laughed like that since Will Farell was having a heartfelt convo in a fish suit with his basketball team in "Semi-pro."
All in all, I would not say that this season was the BEST season out of the 6, but you can tell the producers were trying to approach season six a little bit differently than seasons 4 and 5, where nearly the whole season had apocalyptic feel. This one was more like - hm, things are pretty bad, but the brothers are having fun while they're trying to figure things out and get to know each other all over again. Don't get me wrong, this season has drama like the previous seasons, but it was refreshing to get away from the whole apocalyptic sense and see the brothers interact more leisurely rather than think the clock was always against them because...season 7 is gonna get REAL apocalyptic (BIG spoiler alert) with Castiel becoming god-like/ insane towards the end of season 6.

Für mich die beste Serie!
Eine Mischung aus Action und Horror, gepaart mit jeder Menge Humor!
Ich gebe zu, dass die 6. Staffel ihre Schwächen hat. Mich nervt dieser Familienkram mit Samuel und den anderen Campbells total. Außerdem geht mir der seelenlose Sam tierisch auf den Zunder. Es ist nicht die beste Staffel von Supernatural. Aber sie hat auch ihre Momente. Sam und Dean machen das schon. Die kriegen das wieder hin. 😃
Wie sieht das denn aus, wenn Staffel eins bis 5 in eine Papphülle noch umwickelt sind und dann stellst du Staffel 6 daneben -.- in ihrer Plastikhülle.
Entweder hatten sie kein Bock gehabt sich noch extra Arbeit zu machen oder sie haben das schon so beabsicht. :/ Also ganz klar, was die Verpackung angeht (ausgeschlossen das Cover) sieht sie einfach nur scheiße aus. Das bisschen Mühe noch mit einer Papphülle zu umschließen hätten sie sich wenigstens machen können, dann würde es auch demnächst fünf Sterne geben.
Ich kenne die Staffel schon, hatte oder wollte sie mir nur noch nachbestellen. Muss aber zugeben, dass diese Staffel bisher die schwächste ist, dagegen fand ich die Staffeln davor und die, die noch danach jetzt draußen sind besser. Vorbei ich ab Staffel 8 zu beginn auch meckern muss, was die kurze Geschichte von Sam betrifft, war das absolut unnötig gewesen, nicht das ich es ihn nicht gönne aber mal ernsthaft.
Aber sonst wird Supernatural immer ganz oben auf meiner Favor Liste stehen. :)
Ich und meine Freundin sind große Supernatural-Fans und haben die ersten fünf Staffeln komplett af DVD gesehen.
Ursprünglich waren meines Wissens nach nur die ersten 5 Staffeln geplant, doch er große (berechtigte!) Erfolg zwang die Serie, Fortsetzungen zu produzieren. (Dies kann man online nachlesen)
Zur DVD selbst; das Produkt kam schnell und heil nach 2 Tagen an. Es fällt auf, dass die Verpackung schmaler ist von der Breite, als die vorherigen. Das ist zwar für Leute, die ihre DVDs/SPiele gerne schick ins Regal stellen, schade, aber das ist jetzt mehr eine Anmerkung, und keine negative Kritik.
Zur Staffel selbst; die Handlung der ersten fünf Staffeln war für uns und unseren Bekanntenkreis eine in sich geschlossene Handlung (Achtung, Spoiler: Von Anfang an war der große Plan der Antagonisten, Luzifers Käfig zu öffnen und ihn zu befreien. Dabei waren Sam und Dean von Anfang an in den großen Krieg eingeplant.).
Das Schema hatten wir am meisten geliebt, die die meisten Folgen haben; am Anfang sterben ein paar Menschen durch übernatürliche Gegebenheiten, die Brüder nehmen die Ermittlung auf und bringen die Kreatur zur Strecke.
Ich persönlich freute mich, als ich sah, dass Sam wieder aus dem Käfig befreit wurde, aber ich finde, dass die Handlung etwas an "Höhe" verloren hat. Die Mutter Eve kam in der gesamten Serie nur ein paar Mal vor und der "Endkampf" gegen sie war nicht mal ein richtiger Kampf, was ich sehr schade fand, da es sich ja um die Mutter aller handelt.
Ich persönlich fand die vorherigen Staffeln zudem emotionaler als die sechste.
Highlight für uns war die Folge, in der die beiden Helden sich selbst spielten, sehr unterhaltsam! :)
Da ich ein großer Fan der Serie bin, werde ich die Serie weiter verfolgen. Die Staffel fand ich "gut", aber leider hat sich die Serie von meinem "sehr guten" Empfinden entfernt.
