TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 10 – “Angel Heart”

Misha Collin, Mark A. Sheppard, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki in SUPERNATURAL - Season 10 | ©2014 The CW

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Kathryn Love Newton, Leisha Hailey, Treva Etienne, Russell Porter Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Steve Boyum Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 29, 2015 “Angel Heart” falls somewhere between moving the arc along and mission of the week. It answers one regular, if not imperative, question, gives Misha Collins as Castiel some big moments and shows us that Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are coping more or less as usual, despite everyone’s continued concern about the Mark of Cain’s influence. As regular SUPERNATURAL …Read On »

BURYING THE EX soundtrack | ©2015 Lakeshore Records

Few composers who continually get pulled back into a genre that gave them birth have as much fun both screaming, and laughing about continually being clawed by their fateful, creative relationship than Joseph LoDuca. Born in Michigan around the same time as another native with whom he’d be joined at the hip, LoDuca was well into fulfilling his rock and roll aspirations with the big town likes of Jeff Beck and Bob Seger before getting the call to enter a possessed cabin in the backwoods. The result of his impressively frenetic, orchestral score done a dime was the beginning of …Read On »
