Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark A. Sheppard, Gil McKinney, Alaina Huffman, Jenny O’Hara Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Misha Collins Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 25, 2014 Misha Collins, known to SUPERNATURAL viewers as the angel Castiel, makes his TV directing debut with the episode “Mother’s Little Helper.” He does a good job, with some nice stylistic flourishes – shadows that appear before their owners enter frame, etc. – and gets strong work from series regulars Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester) and Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester). Even though the clues suggest …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark A. Sheppard, Kavan Smith, Rebecca Marshall, Nicole “Snooki’ Polizzi Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Serge Ladouceur Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 18, 2014 With “Blade Runners,” SUPERNATURAL moves the season arc forward, resolves a mini-arc, has a great guest star and no visible sulking. As the characters would say, it’s a win-win. King of Hell Crowley(Mark A. Sheppard) has developed an addiction to human blood, largely thanks to the actions of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) while he was their …Read On »

Exclusive Interview with DALLAS star Mitch Pileggi

Mitch Pileggi stars on DALLAS | © 2014 Skip Bolen

Actor Mitch Pileggi has been in his share of TV classics. He spent nine seasons, and appeared in the two big-screen spin-offs, as FBI Assistant Director Walter Skinner in THE X-FILES. He’s also had recurring roles on SUPERNATURAL, STARGATE: ATLANTIS and SONS OF ANARCHY, to name but a few of his TV gigs. Now Pileggi is a regular as the antagonistic Harris Ryland on TNT’s resurrection of DALLAS, Mondays at 9 PM. The show, now in its third season, is essentially a continuation of the series that ran on CBS from 1978 through 1991. Original stars Patrick Duffy as Bobby …Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 9 – “#THINMAN”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, A.J. Buckley, Travis Wester, Nicholas Carella, Giovanni Mocibob Writer: Jenny Klein, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Jeannot Szwarc Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 4, 2014 SUPERNATURAL is by now deep in angst, mythology and certain kinds of humor. What it has lost over time is any real sense of horror. Surprisingly, “#THINMAN” supplies a jolt of actual creepiness that’s all the more impressive because, for once, there’s nothing supernatural happening. Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) head to a small town in Washington state, where a young woman …Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 9 – “The Purge”

Dean (Jensen Ackles) goes undercover at a fat farm to find a killer on SUPERNATURAL "The Purge" | © 2014 Cate Cameron/The CW

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Annabelle Acosta, Corey Sevier, Joseph Julian Soria Writers: Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 4, 2014 SUPERNATURAL likes to reference movies in its episode titles, but the moderately gross opening sequence of “The Purge” makes us worry for a little while that the whole thing is going to involve victims vomiting before they perish. Turns out this is just the writers playing into the pun and there’s no more reverse peristalsis in “The Purge,” though the episode does …Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 9 – “Sharp Teeth”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, DJ Qualls, Sarah Smyth, Tom Butler, Eve Gordon Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 28, 2014 There’s been a lot going on this season of SUPERNATURAL, what with Sam (Jared Padalecki) being possessed by and then exorcised of a homicidal angel, Dean (Jensen Ackles) acquiring the Mark of Cain, Castiel regaining his wings, Crowley fighting to remain King of Hell and poor Kevin being murdered. However, it has occurred to us and the Winchesters to wonder what the heck has happened to erstwhile buddy Garth …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Timothy Omundson, Rachel Hayward Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John Badham Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 21, 2014 Directed by John Badham – yes, the helmer of the Frank Langella DRACULA, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER and WARGAMES, among other credits – the SUPERNATURAL episode “First Born” comes up with a surprising yet logical (within the context of the show) bit of mythology, while working buddy comedy from two separate angles. While Dean (Jensen Ackles) is out on the road hunting Gadriel, he …Read On »

In the CW’s freshman series Reign, Thursdays at 8 PM, we are in sixteenth-century France. Fifteen-year-old Mary (Adelaide Kane), Queen of Scots, is here to wait for her arranged marriage to the French crown Prince, Francis II (Toby Regbo). Francis’ mother Queen Catherine (Megan Follows) is averse to the match, largely because court prophet Nostradamus (Rossif Sutherland) has warned that Mary will be the cause of Francis’ death. There’s also the matter of Mary’s increasing romantic interest in Francis’ half-brother, Sebastian, better known as Bash, played by Torrance Coombs, who was born to the king’s mistress. The difference between Francis …Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 9 – “Road Trip”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Curtis Armstrong, Alaina Huffman, Tahmoh Penikett Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 14, 2014 “Road Trip” is the best kind of humorous SUPERNATURAL episode. It’s not constructed as a joke-fest, but rather has a setup that allows the laughs to come organically out of the characters – even though Dean (Jensen Ackles) hardly feels like laughing at the outset. Poor Dean. The angel Gadreel has hijacked Sam’s (Jared Padalecki) physical form and used it to …Read On »

Interview: SUPERNATURAL guest star Richard Speight Jr. is a trickster and more

Richard Speight Jr. is known to a whole bunch of different viewers for his work on a wide variety of projects. Fans of HBO’s 2001 miniseries BAND OF BROTHERS recognize the Tennessee-born actor as Sgt. Warren “Skip” Muck. Those familiar with the series THE AGENCY remember Speight as Lex. On the near-future post-apocalyptic JERICHO, Speight played Bill, and on JUSTIFIED, he’s recurred as not-very-bright crook Jed Berwind. Speight’s role over four episodes of SUPERNATURAL – currently in its ninth season on the CW, Tuesdays at 9 PM - is notable, for a number of reasons, one being that he played three …Read On »
