Not many shows can capture the pulpy thrill of monster hunting like Buffy the Vampire Slayer, sustain it with a fun apocalyptic plot balanced by great meta-humor, and end on a gut-wrenching series finale that nevertheless gives the main arc a logical conclusion. Supernatural was set to be that show, but alas pressures from CW executives caused the show to continue with a sixth season against Creator/Showrunner Eric Kripke’s wishes.
