Supernatural: The Complete Twelfth Season Blu-ray Review
In the show’s twelfth season, Sam and Dean Winchester (Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles) are reunited with their mother, Mary Winchester (Samantha Smith), newly resurrected by the apocalyptic force known as the Darkness. But Mary Winchester is not the only family appearing this season. In addition to Lucifer being sprung from Hell, he’s also expecting a son. Now, the Winchesters – with Castiel’s help – must not only contend with Crowley, Lucifer and his spawn, and the arrival of the conniving British Men of Letters (who’ve come to “complicate” their hunting days), but they’ll also have to relearn what it is to be a family again after all these years.

If a show has been around for 12 years and is still continuing, the show has to be good. Dean Winchester is a bad ass who listens to classic rock and drives a 67′ Impala. Although some people say that Supernatural contains a lot of scary episodes, I believe that most of us can handle the scary parts even if we’re not big fans of scary movies. The actors, the plot, the scenery, everything contributes to this amazing TV show. The chemistry between the actors is one of the greatest factors that this TV show goes so well. Over the years they’ve bonded and they give their best performance in every single episode. What makes Supernatural so interesting is that it’s not only fantasy and horror but also drama, comedy and many other kinds that attract a lot of people to watch. One more thing that makes this show so fun to watch is that it even offers many reliable information and facts about mythic creatures and not only. For me, it’s one of the best TV series (maybe the best) out of the 12 series I’ve been watching so far and I’m not even considered to be a fantasy/horror lover. I highly recommend it!
Movie Quality: 9.5/10
The print is presented in 1080p/MPEG-4 with a 1.78:1 aspect ratio. I have to say that I am pretty impressed with the image quality this show looks really good in its transfer to Blu-ray. This is one crystal clear looking television show, this show carries a darker gritty look to it as it has from the beginning. Colors are strong throughout and vary from episode to episode to fit with the atmosphere. Details are great especially with scenes where the camera is up close. Black levels are very strong considering that the series has many dark scenes throughout each episode. There is also some light grain and noise throughout the transfer, it never becomes obtrusive or distracting. Fans of the show will not be disappointed the slightest.
Video Quality: 9.5/10
The audio is presented in DTS-HD MA lossless 5.1 mix. Dialogue was front and center with no apparent issues sounding crisp. The soundfield was rather active anytime there were action sequences or effects. I do think that this could have sounded even better with lossless audio mix. Especially with the wonderful soundtrack that this show incorporates based on 70’s heavy metal/hard rock.
