I liked it. It's amazing how much more I like the show when I am not watching it on TV. Or maybe it's because the ones I caught inS 2 just sucked and I missed the good ones.
I loved the concept of The Seven Deadly Sins. I was a bit slow and didn't catch on until they said it. That's okay.
As usual, the show is on the predictible side and there's really not a part where I didn't see something coming, but I've always liked this show more for the emotion and the atmosphere. It always has a suspenseful and creepy vive to it which is exactly what it is supposed to do.
Sam was Sam. I enjoyed him as I always do. Dean reacted pretty much how I thought he would react with a year to live. My guess is that Sam is going to keep looking for a way to save Dean anyway. Both very much in character. And we know whatever happens will probably culminate somewhere near the finale. But I enjoyed both characters and I even got some whumped Dean, even if it was for a second ;)
But the real star of this episode was Bobby. I almost didn't recognize him all cleaned up. Crazy! But he was so awesome. I love him so very much. *hugs him* Best supporting cast ever. I still miss Papa Winchester, though.
I liked the couple slayer/demon hunters. They were cool. And the new blonde chick didn't bother me. I know there's been some controversy about adding new members to the cast but I'm okay wih it. I think they're going to serve as good foils to Dean and Sam and I tend to like that in storytelling. But since I don't know any spoilers, I'm not sure how it will pan out.
Anyway, good solid episode for the premiere. The preview for next week looks good too. So we'll see :)
I have to catch up on SGA at some point, too.
