I like the old school horror feel, and that each episode is basically one individual story based on an urban legend while the "family story" runs in parallel.
Then I just realized it runs 15 seasons long ! I never would have thought based on the subject and plot that they can make 300+ episodes out of it. So for those who've seen it, is it worth watching all the 15, is there a specific period where you considered a good chance to stop because it became boring/repetitive/soap opera... ?
When it started it was probably my favorite show on TV for three or four seasons. Like you said, very urban legend based with some strong familial issues going on throughout each year.
Then in season four they introduce angels and demons and heaven and hell and Lucifer and while a lot of people loved that aspect of the show, I just never bought in, even as there are some truly classic episodes of TV in there. They add an angel named Castiel who becomes a series regular and he's great, but I just preferred the first few years.
I stopped watching somewhere around season seven and I've always meant to go back, but it's literally like a 150+ episodes to go through. Probably won't ever happen.
