List RulesVote for your favorite Supernatural episodes.

After so many seasons on air, it can be difficult picking the best Supernatural episodes of all time. Some are absolute hits while others land a bit far from the mark. So who else to decide which are the best Supernatural episodes than fans such as yourself? That's why this list exists--so you can vote for your favorites and we can find out once and for all what everyone thinks the best episode is. Below you'll find Supernatural episodes, ranked from best to worst as voted on by fans of the series.

With so many memorable episodes of the show, over fifteen seasons, it's hard to trust just one person's opinion of what the top Supernatural episodes of all time are. Fans of Supernatural are extremely passionate about the show, and there is often debate over which episodes are better than others. If you like Supernatural, then you probably also enjoy other great CW shows currently on air - though originally Supernatural aired on The WB before moving to The CW, and is the last WB show still on air.

So is your favorite Supernatural episode season one's "Faith" or season five's trippy "Changing Channels"? Get started voting on what you think are the best Supernatural episodes.
