Yeah, it’s on the WB and yeah, it has some pretty men in the lead. B/but so far there’s been nothing but good stuff said about "Supernatural", which premieres tonight at 9/8C on The WB.
The show is about two brothers who, despite the reluctance of one of them to acknowledge their family’s past, set out cross-country to find their father, who had made it his life’s work to discover and stop the evil forces that claimed the life of his wife.
The show’s creator and executive producer, Eric Kripke, told Sci Fi Wire that he sees "Supernatural" as a show about the urban legends and folklore that are spread out all over our country, and the idea’s been an obsession with him for a while now.
"I said [to the studio], 'I have one idea, but I don't even want to bring it up, because it's impossible from a production standpoint, and it's totally irresponsible of me, and they said, 'What is it?' And I said, 'Well, it's to do this show as Route 66. The real way to get into every small town and hear every small town's ghost story or creature story is to put two guys in a cool car and drive them from small town to small town across America. But that's crazy, because there's no standing sets and no recurring cast.'"
It’s definitely a ballsy move on the part of Warners, but hopefully if the reviews are to be believed it will pay off in the end. Head on over to Yahoo! TV for a whole load of photos, the show’s trailer, and interviews with the stars.
