For as long as I can remember the show has had a good link to the Bible. Now how true this stems I have never been 100% sure on those facts. Whether the writers remained loyal to this transcript or made up their own version. Some fans say that the show follows the Old Testament and others related to the New Testament. Is there a strong case that the show was half and half? Could it in fact work a bit of magic from both testaments? Was Eric as close as he could be with biblical facts, or did he cheat a little and create his own but keeping as much as he could to those religious guidelines.
The bible is after all a factual account and dictated by God. So would Eric have had to have been pretty close in his writing, and researching skills? As some fans have mentioned in the past did he actually wing it on occasion? For example it’s a fantasy type genre show, so would it have really bothered him if it wasn’t penned exactly to the Bible? And just took his own imagination on board and flown with this knowledge? One question that fascinates me all through the first five years was Eric a religious man himself? Did he all along want to steer the show in a religious direction? As Revolution his knew show is not religiously themed at all. So why was Supernatural based on religion? Yes demons have a connection with hell, so does the bible. Angels are in heaven, and Eric didn’t really want to involve the angels and from what I have heard he hated the idea of even bringing them on board. So would the show have succeeded without the angel’s presence? Did it enhance the overall feel, and create a new image for the show. So could the show run just talking about demons without any religious feel to the show? Would it have survived if it wasn’t a huge part of the mythology? After all the mythology is a massive chunk of the shows history. So was the religious side of the show is partly what made the show attractive. It may have been the relationship for many, but did religion hold that key. Did it make or break it?
So how do you feel about the mythology side of the shows story telling? Do you think it remains true to the original manuscript, or is a fake representation. Could the show have succeeded without the introduction of the angels, considering the brothers think they are dicks with wings? Would enjoy understanding your feelings about religion on our favorite show, any thoughts ….
