Two brothers follow their father's footsteps as "hunters", fighting evil supernatural beings of many kinds, including monsters, demons, and gods that roam the earth.
Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are one year older than their characters: Padalecki was born in 1982, and Ackles in 1978, while Sam and Dean were born in 1983 and 1979, respectively.
The show's rules say that the biggest flag for demonic possession is sulfur. We often see Sam and Dean sniff for it, or sniff a yellow powder suspected to be sulfur. Pure sulfur actually doesn't have the rotten-egg odor we associate with it - that's hydrogen sulfide, which is a gas. Pure sulfur is odorless.
The opening credits are shown during an early scene.
