Most Kickass TV Series Ever! WAY Better Than The Walking Dead.

This show was awesome! So sad that it's finally over. My aunt introduced me to this show a few years ago, and I've been a fan ever since. Sam and Dean save people, hunt monsters and eat some pie. What an awesome life to have. We all wish we could live like that, and this show is a great escape from reality, especially because of the hard times we're living in right now. *SPOILER WARNING (skip this paragraph if you haven't watched the final season) I didn't mind the fact that they made God the main villain of the series. Having God as a villain was the right move. In my opinion, it makes perfect sense. But that's all I'm gonna say about it, I'm not gonna go too deep into detail to why I think it makes sense. I don't want to upset some people on here. Overall, great series. It was one hell of a ride. The final episode could've been better, but I think they still wrapped it all up nicely. If you're into monster hunting, vampires, demons, warlocks and anything supernatural (no pun intended), you should definitely check out this series.
