Unpopular opinion: SUPERNATURAL IS OVERRATED

I mean, the show is fine and I enjoyed it for what it was worth.
But it's not THAT good.

Some of the reasons why:
×Sam and Dean are always fighting for seemingly no reason and it makes me want to bash my head into a wall
×I hate Dean: he's a selfish asshole and a hypocrite (example: getting really mad at Sam for befriending monsters only to turn around and do the same thing and act all righteous about it)
×Sam is only a little better, barely growing throughout the series
×I like Castiel but it feels like the show runners never knew what to do with him
×pretty much all the romantic sub plots were shit
×they kept introducing good characters only to kill them off (Charlie, Benny, Kevin, Meg, etc.)
×at the same time giving us emotional yet satisfying deaths like Bobby's and then NOT LETTING HIM DIE
×and the villians got dumber and dumber every season

They should have ended the show after 5 seasons the way they bad initially planned.

Sorry, went on a bit of a rant there.

That said, feel free to add to my list, dispute my points, or just scream about the show.
  
I absolutely agree

It seems that you have to raise the stakes every season which almost completely negates the pacing and narrative beats.

Spoiler text below. Highlight to read.
Gabriel coming back after his death in season 5 was one of the worst mistakes made with the show


Crowley was one of my favorite characters because he was a dick but a lovable one. I feel like the writers are constantly writing themselves into a corner.
  
It's a prime example of a show that outgrew its premise and jumped the shark. I still love the old seasons.
  
^^^ they dragged it out so long it became mundane
  
It was just crappy to begin with I watched like 2 seasons and lost interest my husband loves that show and tried very hard to convince me to watch it and I was like nope.
