Zaphod's Handy Dandy Supernatural Viewing Guide

As many of us know, Supernatural is quirky, campy, and sometimes downright brilliant, but sometimes a bit hit-or-miss. When watching a series that varies so wildly between the profound and the preposterous, it can often be difficult to know what's actually important and what's just filler, so I've decided to compile this (hopefully) useful list to help sort it out for those of us that aren't caught up yet or are still considering getting into it.

KEY
White- Filler; can mostly be skimmed. *
Red- Key plot episode.
Yellow- Episodes that aren't necessarily key to the plot, but awesome in their own right.
Red & Yellow- GOD TIER.

* Note that filler episodes usually still have important content in the last ten minutes or so, hence why it's better to skim than to skip outright.
