It’s that time again! Having already given you a definitive list of awesome sci-fi shows you should translate onto your brain waves, here’s a brilliant collection of fantasy shows to sink your teeth into. If you don’t know how to defend yourself from a werewolf attack by the end of these beauties, I don’t know what to tell ya…
Y’know, saving people, hunting monsters, demons and so forth, the family business… [SUPER COOL GUITAR SOLO]
We follow Sam and Dean Winchester, hunters of the supernatural, across North America, searching not only for their missing patriarch but the demon that killed their mother when they were kids and drove their father into the hunting business in the first place. The gorgeous ’67 Chevrolet Impala will forever impact your opinion on cars, trust me.
WHAT MAKES IT GREAT
The fact that the chemistry between Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki who play the lead brothers changed the whole face of the originally monster-of-the-week into a show highlighting the importance of family and free will is legendary. The mythology is broad and exciting and invites pretty much anything to be real. The acting, the cinematography, the soundtrack, everything works towards an infinitely satisfying open-road aesthetic, with an earnestly relatable theme at the heart of it. Whilst the stark-raving mad fandom may seem strange and terrifying, you will find they have every right to be. If you, like I was, tempted by the weird gifs and commentaries on tumblr that spoke of something weird but wonderful, I’d urge you to give in to that temptation. It’s definitely worth it. Although, power through season 7, please. You’ll (hopefully) see why.
