I’ve been impressed with this series so far, but the real test of any series will come after the first couple of episodes. The pilot is all about establishing premise, and the second episode is typically taking the ideas from the pilot and reshaping them into an ongoing format. After that, it’s all up in the air. Take “Threshold” as a good example: the first two hours were promising, but the third hour didn’t meet the same standard.

Surprisingly, I think I liked this episode even more than the pilot. Granted, there were a lot of elements lifted from the “X-Files” episodes “Detour” and “Darkness Falls”, but within the framework of this series, it worked rather well. If Mulder or Scully had expressed such a cocky sense of experience when dealing with the experts, it would have come across as disingenuous. In this case, I expected nothing less.
I’m a guy, and so the characters of Sam and Dean needed to be more than hot actors posturing for the camera. While there’s an awful lot of posturing going on, I’m getting the sense that a lot of that is intentional.
