The following Blu-ray was provide to me by Warner Brothers to review. Thoughts and opinions are my own.
15 Years, that’s a long time for anything in life let alone an episodic television show about two brothers hunting demons. But that’s what Supernatural was, and that’s how long it continued. Supernatural, the story of Sam and Dean Winchester, two brothers trained by their father to hunt various demons and monsters throughout the country. The battled vampires, zombies, werewolves, even Satan and God himself. Crossovers with Scooby Doo, and countless homages to the Universal Monsters. This show created its own universe like no show in history has done, nor will probably ever do. From the Bible, to Dr Frankenstein, all the way to Cupid all of this was incorporated over the years. We watched Dean die, go to hell, come back to life and help the archangels battle lucifer. We have seen the brothers battle Crowley the King of Hell, fight through Purgatory, and even learn they have been the paws of God the entire time. How do you bring this to a fitting conclusion? Well I wont give that a way but trust me it works.
Season 15 picks up right after the events of the following season the Winchesters are thrown right into a battle with zombies, including some undead serial killers. See when Chuck opened the doors of hell causing the great rapture he released over a billion lost souls unto the earth. Sam and Dead team up with Rowena to try and reverse things. They do manage to wrap this up in the first few episodes but we soon learn that Castiel is growing weaker as is God. Dean, who never wants to stop fighting is able to convince the others that they would be able to stop God, as they have learned that he has a dark “Ending” for them in mind. Having been protected by God all these years it difficult for the brothers this season as they no longer have the good fortune on their side. There is actually an episode that covers this. In fact even though this season wraps of 15 years’ worth of storylines it still continues with many different “Monsters of the Week”
The Winchesters team with Jack, Adam, their mother, people of other earths and more in an attempt to defeat God and bring peace to Heaven and Earth. I wont give it away if you’ve not seen it, but the show does manage to do what most series cannot. They tie up all the lose ends. In fact the wrap the entire storyline, that has continued for the last 15 years before the final episode. That is something I really enjoyed as it gave the final much more depth and meaning. Yes you do get a conclusion, that will not only make you happy, but if you have been watching will make you shed a tear as well.
All good things must come to an end and Warner Brothers has done a wonderful job on this 15th and last season Blu-ray. The video quality is amazing. I watched the show as it aired in HD but this is the way to go. Crisp, bright, no blue tint in the dark scenes. Just perfect. The audio is fantastic as well. Everything comes to life as it bellows from your speakers. This is a fantastic release with amazing cover art as well. Its even loaded with special features as well and they are great. In fact its so loaded it come son a special bonus disc.

A fantastic show that I have spent the last 15 years enjoying. Naturally I will miss it, but I am glad to say that it went out the way it needed to. Tying up 15 years’ worth of lose ends is never easy, but they did it. There will never be a show like this again. Pick this up an relieve it all again and enjoy all the extras.
Overall 4 out of 5 Stars!
