Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Lucien Laviscourt, Nathan Buzolic, Sean Faris, Melissa Roxburgh, Danielle Savre, Stephen Martines, Bryce Johnson, Erinn Westbrook, Michael Rogers Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 29, 2014 Ah, the dreaded backdoor pilot, bane of most successful shows. In its ninth season, SUPERNATURAL gets its first one (officially – there have been a few others that looked like attempts). The good news: “Bloodlines” is not nearly as bad as these things can be – it’s actually got some pep and Sam (Jared …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Kim Rhodes, Katherine Ramdeen, Ashley Crow, Reilly Dolman, Greyston Holt Writer: Robert Berens, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Stefan Pleszczynski Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 22, 2014 With a series as arced as SUPERNATURAL, it’s surprising to see a standalone episode so late in the season, but “Alex Annie Alexis Ann” is a perfectly decent example of the breed. Apart from Sam’s (Jared Padalecki) concern that the Mark of Cain may be making Dean (Jensen Ackles) a lot more bloodthirsty than is healthy, and one crack from Dean that …Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Curtis Armstrong, Tahmoh Penikett, Richard Speight Jr. Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 15, 2014 We know right away that the “Meta Fiction” episode of SUPERNATURAL is no ordinary hour of television; not that most episodes of SUPERNATURAL could be described as “ordinary,” but even by this show’s standards, we are cruising into the Straits of Gonzo. The treacherous but genial angel Metatron (Curtis Armstrong), erstwhile scribe of Heaven, clad in a fancy smoking jacket, looks up …Read On »

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 »

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

AJ Buckley in SUPERNATURAL - Season 9 - "#THINMAN" | ©2014 The CW/Diyah Pera

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 »

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 »
