Now she, her uncle Miles (Billy Burke) and their allies are on a quest to find out what’s actually happened. The good news: some people have electrical power again. The bad news: the people who have the power are very, very bad.

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Felicia Day, Linda Boyd Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 24, 2013 Given the entirety of SUPERNATURAL’s seventh season, one might be forgiven for guessing in advance that an episode titled “Pac-Man Fever” would involve the return of the Leviathans. It turns out that “Pac-Man Fever” instead is a loose reference to a videogame that isn’t really a videogame, but rather just a djinn-created offshoot of a recurring nightmare had by Charlie (Felicia Day), which winds up also engulfing Dean …Read On »

Sheppard, Osric Chau, Ty Olsson, Amanda Tapping, Assaf Cohen Writers: Eugenie Leming-Ross & Brad Buckner, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Guy Norman Bee Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 27, 2013 An appearance from Jim Beaver as Bobby Singer is always a noteworthy event – to paraphrase Art Mullen on JUSTIFIED, speaking of Beaver’s character on that series, let us take a moment to acknowledge this guy is awesome. Bobby died last season, and the boys even burned his bones when his ghost started turning to …Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 8 – “Freaks and Geeks”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Madison McLaughlin, Adam DiMarco, Megan Danso, Adrian Hough Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 27, 2013 After the emotional and structural intensity of SUPERNATURAL’s previous episode “Goodbye, Stranger,” whatever came next was likely to pale in comparison, but “Freaks and Geeks” wouldn’t be particularly winning no matter where it was placed in the season (and it could have gone practically anywhere). It puts Sam (Jared Padalecki) and especially Dean (Jensen Ackles) in the role of worried surrogate dads/big brothers …Read On »

Stars: Hugh Dancy, Mads Mikkelsen, Laurence Fishburne, Caroline Dhavernas, Hettienne Park, Lara Jean Chorostecki Writer: Bryan Fuller, series created by Bryan Fuller, based on characters created by Thomas Harris in his novel RED DRAGON Director: David Slade Network: NBC, Thursdays @ 10 PM Original Airdate: April 4, 2013 For whatever reason, serial killer dramas have achieved enough population to qualify, at least at present, as their own subgenre. We already have DEXTER and THE FOLLOWING, not counting vampire shows (where a lot of the regular characters are serial killers, but are also simultaneously fantasy supernatural beings) or series where the …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Rachel Miner, Amanda Tapping Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 25, 2013 SUPERNATURAL just about hits it out of the park with “Goodbye Stranger.” We get answers, we get emotion, we get some jolting visuals, we get revelations about character’s sexual histories, we get slash that writes itself, we get a super guest cast and we get verbal quotes from STAR WARS and LORD OF THE RINGS and a reference to Sean Astin’s Samwise …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Brooke Langton, John Reardon, Anna Van Hooft, John Novak, Callum Seagram Airlie Writer: Daniel Loflin, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Steve Boyum Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 27, 2013 In Greek mythology, the Titans preceded the gods. Most of the Titans were pretty brutal, but Prometheus is credited with giving mankind fire. In consequence, Zeus, king of the gods, chained Prometheus to a cliff so that he could have his liver torn out every day, then revive and go through it all over again. SUPERNATURAL puts its own spin …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Christian Campbell, Mishael Morgan, Curtis Caravaggio, Serge Houde Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Leming-Ross, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 21, 2013 Lord (and Prophet of) knows that not every episode of SUPERNATURAL needs to be filled with suspense, pathos or even humor; likewise, not every episode needs to advance the seasonal arc. Indeed, “Man’s Best Friend With Benefits” does resolve the mini-drama begun in “Trial and Error,” with Dean (Jensen Ackles) wanting to die for Sam (Jared Padalecki) and worried that …Read On »
