"There aren't many shows that could largely reinvent themselves in their third seasons and come out on top. That would require almost, ahem, "Supernatural" intervention.
And yet The CW's Thursday-night (8 p.m., Ch. 30) action/horror/thriller/comedy has done just that. It's better than ever.
For those of you who haven't checked the series out, "Supernatural" began as the story of brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles), whose mother was killed by a demon when they were very young. Their father, John (Jeffrey Dean Morgan), seeking revenge, became a skilled demon hunter and raised his sons to follow in his footsteps."
"Fans and stars of defunct TV shows "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Angel" and "Firefly" participated in a rally to support striking Hollywood writers.
All three shows, which still have huge followings, were created by Joss Whedon and were lauded during their runs for the quality of their writing."
