The Complete Fourteenth Season review by Bobby Blakey

These days The CW has become probably best known for their series of DC live action superhero shows, but long before all of them there was their long running hit Supernatural. Now the show is heading into its fifteenth and final season, so what better time to relive the previous season with Supernatural: The Complete Fourteenth Season.
Supernatural follows Sam and Dean Winchester as they follow their father's footsteps, hunting down evil supernatural creatures such as monsters, demons, and even fallen gods while trying to save innocent people along the way. Continuing the "family business" after their father's death, the brothers soon discovered that the "hunt" doesn't just involve slashing and hacking monsters and demons but also dealing with more powerful creatures such as angels, reapers, and even Death. Last season, the Winchesters and Castiel stumbled upon a terrifying alternative universe: an apocalyptic world where they were never born, all while training Jack, the son of Lucifer, and trying to save their mother, Mary Winchester. The final battle with Lucifer and the Archangel Michael altered the Winchesters’ lives forever…and created an even greater threat for Sam and Dean.
I have stuck with this show through its ups and downs and have always found it
amazing how no matter where the story goes it always finds it way back to a great path. This season is one of the better ones in a while with so many homages to the early days that it felt like it went back to its roots while still being feeling fresh. The cast all do a great job as always but it’s the interesting direction they go in this universe they have spent fourteen years creating. I wasn’t a big fan of the Jack character but this season really took him in some interesting directions and made him one to remember.
Part of the charm of this show was always the creative creatures and demons that the Winchesters are forced to hunt and this season is no exception. Gone is the case of the week, but they still manage to throw some of those in for good measure with most connecting to the bigger story. I have to stay that this is one of the more surprising seasons with the amount of character returns, deaths and twists that showcase they are bringing their A game as it inches to the finale of the series next season.
This collection not only features all 20 episodes of the season including the landmark 300th episode, but also bonus content including unaired scenes, gag reel, commentaries, featurettes and more.
