Advertisements Ok - so maybe reboot isn't entirely accurate. Most of what happened in the seasons prior still happened, except for some reason Sam got yanked out of Hell, and Samuel Campbell got pulled down (from Heaven, presumably), after being dead for nearly 40 years. I can accept all of that without too much suspension of disbelief - there is certainly a precedent for the death and resurrection of a key character, especially Sam (if I count correctly, this is the 6th time that Sam has died and then been resurrected, although only twice were those deaths presumed to be permanent). But, still, there is a noticeable difference in the tone of the show from the earlier seasons when serires creator Eric Kripke was the show-runner, and so far, it's not for the better. I didn't think the first two eps of this season were terrible by any stretch, but so far (two episodes in) it's missing the trademark dark/dry humor that so embodies the show and the relationship between Sam and Dean. As dark as the show became last season, it still had plenty of moments where I had a good chuckle. What humor there was in the second ep ("Two and Half Men") stemmed from Dean as Daddy, and while it had its moments, it was still.... different. Other seasons have started slowly/poorly, and then rebounded to finish with a bang, so there is still hope for this one. Plus, I enjoy the main characters far too much to give up on it, so I'll continue to watch until the bitter end. What say you?
