In September of 2005, the first season of Eric Kripke's dark fantasy series, Supernatural, premiered on the WB to... a muted response. It went through until May 2006 when it concluded 22 episodes later, finally finding its feet and fully filling the hole Buffy the Vampire Slayer left behind.
The plot followed the story of the Winchester brothers Sam and Dean, and their adventures across the United States saving people, hunting things, and overall partaking in the family business. Littered between monster-of-the-week eps is the hunt for their absent father, who disappeared while on a revenge mission following the death of their mother at the hands of a demon when Sam and Dean were only young children.
Critics praised and scorned the first season alike, with some heavily complimenting the on-screen brotherly chemistry between Sam and Dean and some saying how they disliked the predominantly anthology-like format. At the time it was the little show that could, and nobody had any idea it would go on to become one of America's longest-running series.
But that was almost 15 years ago, and for both super fans and casuals alike, it begs the question: how well do you know the season which started it all?
