Supernatural: Sam Winchester and his elder brother Dean go hunting
September 2005 was a significant date for thefans of the adventures of the Winchester brothers. On this day, the premiere of the series, which can already be called a long-liver among mystical and fantasy films, was launched. The concept of the project was developed by Eric Kripke. He was fond of urban legends and folklore since childhood and decided to create a TV series on their basis. Work on the story lasted about 10 years. The concept of the future film changed many times, while Kripke did not stop at the idea that two brothers would travel across the country and fight with evil spirits. Sam and Dean Winchester - the protagonists of the series - received a sonorous name thanks to Kripke's interest in the westerns. He saw the concept of the project like this: two stranger-cowboys arrive in a small town, save him from bad guys, drive girls mad and leave. Since modern cowboys needed a special means of transportation, the series included another permanent, albeit inanimate, character - the 1967 Chevrolet Impala.
Originally planned to finish the series after 3season, then extended it by another two. But high ratings and huge popularity led to the fact that the history of the Winchester brothers stretched for 11 seasons. We must pay tribute to its creator - they have been able to keep the series at a high level for 11 years and not to lower the bar.
Interesting fact: Jared Padalecki and Jensen Eccles, the main actors, greatly influenced the concept of the series. Kripke wanted to scare the audience with stories about monsters and characters of urban legends and folklore. Winchester Sam and his brother Dean had to become a link, but did not come to the fore. But when the writers noticed the friendly relations of the actors, who loved to make fun of each other, they decided to develop in parallel the line of relations between the brothers.
Almost all seasons of the series are filmed in Vancouver and its environs.
In the last series of each season, the song Carry On Wayward Son sounds. Eric Kripke threatened to leave the series, if it does not have rock music.
The plot of "Supernatural"
It can not be called original. He to some extent similar to the "X-Files" and "Grimm", where the main characters also have to enter into confrontation with the supernatural forces. But there are also raisins in the series. It is difficult to call it classical. In "Supernatural" many genres are mixed: tragedy, mysticism, fantasy, comedy. Winchester Sam and his brother Dean have repeatedly appeared in the most incredible places: in the past, in the future, in hell, in heaven.
After the death at the hands of the demon mother Dean and Sam theirFather John vowed to find the killer and take revenge. He became one of the hunters for evil spirits. When the sons grew up, they continued the family business. The Winchester brothers are looking for mysterious cases and strange crimes in newspapers and Internet news. When they arrive at the place, they determine whether their work is affected. If suspicions are confirmed and it becomes clear that a supernatural being is involved in the matter, hunting begins. In parallel, a line of complex relations between brothers develops. From the second season, Sam and Dean have to not only destroy the monsters that come to our world, but also save him from death.
Winchester Sam - one of the main characters of the series "Supernatural"
His life changed radically in the six-monthage, when the demon Azazel came for the baby. Sam's mother managed to pass it to his eldest son Dean and was killed by a monster. John, the father of boys, who did not have time to help his wife, vowed to find a demon and destroy. Since that day, the life of the Winchester family has been subordinated to only one - the search for Azazel. Soon John joined the grown up Dean. Sam was guarded in every possible way and was not hunted. Gradually, he himself increasingly wanted to continue the family business. Sam, who too often remained alone, lacked a normal life. He dreamed of going to college, while his father hoped that he and his brother would continue to destroy the evil spirits and seek the killer of his mother. Eventually a complicated conversation took place between them, which resulted in Sam leaving the house. He went to college and hoped that now his life would begin to improve.
Sam's personal life
The younger Winchester had severalSerious relationships. In college, he met Jessica, with whom he hoped to create a family. But then in the life of Sam burst Dean with the news of the disappearance of his father and a request to help find him. Unable to deny his brother, he goes with him in search. Upon arriving home, Sam finds Jessica killed in exactly the same way as his mother.
After the incident, he could not come to himself for a long time. Sam was constantly tormented by dreams in which he again and again saw the dying Jessica.

Relations between brothers

However, whatever quarrels occur between them, the brothers are ready to give their lives for each other without hesitation.
"Unbreakable" hunters for evil spirits
By the way, about life and death. Writers of "Supernatural" deprived the Winchester brothers of their lives more than once or twice.
