Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Aleks Paunovic, Jackie Debatin, Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, Aidan Kahn, Bethany Brown Writers: John Bring & Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Jerry Wanek Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 24, 2016 The SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “Beyond the Mat” has it both ways – it’s a perfectly good procedural with the boys, while moving the plot forward with ex-King of Hell Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard) and current down-under ruler Lucifer (Misha Collins). On the more or less standalone side, Dean (Jensen Ackles) proposes […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “The Vessel”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Weronika Rosati, Grant Harvey, Darren Dolynski Writer: Robert Berens, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John Badham Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 17, 2016 It had to happen sometime. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) were bound to realize at some point that their angel friend Castiel (Misha Collins) is actually being occupied by Lucifer. Sooner or later, any show that has time travel has to have a story set on a U.S. Navy submarine during WWII, so SUPERNATURAL Season 11 does that as […]Read On »

TV REVIEW: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “Love Hurts”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Emily Swallow, Luciana Carro, Jim Thorburn, Venus Terzo, Zoe Fraser Writers: Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 27, 2016 The SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “Love Hurts” is and isn’t a standalone episode. The creature of the week here and how it operates is essential in getting Dean (Jensen Ackles) to open up to brother Sam (Jared Padalecki) about his bond with God’s sister Amara (Emily Swallow). This is good. The mechanism of revelation, however, requires a fairly complicated […]Read On »

Gina Rodriguez plays the title character in The CW’s one-hour comedy JANE THE VIRGIN, now in its second season Mondays at 8 PM.

Jane is now the loving mother of little Mateo, but meanwhile, Rafael’s scheming but occasionally conscience-stricken ex-wife Petra, played by Yael Grobglas, has found a way to get pregnant on her own. Grobglas starred in the recent horror film JERUZALEM and had an arc on […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “Into the Mystic”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Shoshannah Stern, Dee Wallace, Jonathan Potts Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John Badham Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 27, 2016 SUPERNATURAL, should it need saying, doesn’t have the most fabulous track record with female characters. The Season 11 episode “Into the Mystic” can’t on its own compensate for all that, but it at least passes the Bechdel test some of the time, with two guest women, Aileen (Shoshannah Stern) and Mildred (Dee Wallace), conferring over how to take out a banshee when they’re not […]Read On »

Sheppard, Mark Pellegrino, Ruth Connell, Emily Swallow, Colin Ford, Lisa Berry Valerie Tian Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 20, 2016 Historically, Lucifer has a reputation as a tempter, which he upholds mightily in the SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “The Devil in the Details.” The Devil, in this instance, as played by Mark Pellegrino, would actually like to be in Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) in order to use him as a vessel. Hey, it almost […]Read On »

CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND: Santino Fontana singing and comedy in the new CW series – interview

Santino Fontana’s character Greg Serrano may be a comparatively less loony person on the CW’s hour-long Monday night musical comedy series CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND, but the actor’s own schedule looks pretty bonkers, as he’s simultaneously co-starring in NBC’s new Thursday-night police drama SHADES OF BLUE as NYPD officer Stuart Saperstein. The two shows could hardly be more different. CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND stars Rachel Bloom, who co-created the show with Aline Brosh McKenna, as Rebecca Bunch, who gives up a promising Manhattan law career to move to West Covina, California, in pursuit of her oblivious crush Josh (Vincent Rodriguez III). Rebecca’s daydreams tend […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark A. Sheppard, Ruth Connell, Emily Swallow, Mark Pellegrino Writers: Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer. Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: December 9, 2015 The Season 11 SUPERNATURAL episode “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” is a little like one of those inquiries where each response is met with another “Why?” The title refers specifically to Amara’s (Emily Swallow), aka Darkness, quest to find her brother – that is, God – but by the end, we’ve got plenty of questions of our own. Is Amara’s […]Read On »
