SUPERNATURAL puts its own spin …Read On »

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 »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Osric Chau, Danay Garcia, Alisen Dorn, Francis Xavier McCarthy, Tamara Braun Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Kevin Parks Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 14, 2013 One of the elements that makes SUPERNATURAL what it is involves Winchester brotherly love. This can take a number of forms, but one of the most visible and recurring is self-sacrifice – even when it’s a big stretch. This time around, it’s Dean (Jensen Ackles) making like the Mr. Fantastic of logic, taking a situation that calls for survival if it’s …Read On »

However, all we’ve known until now about their paternal grandfather, John Winchester’s dad Henry (Gil McKinney), is that he ran out when John was still a child. Or so they thought. As we see in the SUPERNATURAL episode “As Time Goes By,” it turns …Read On »

The show also has had issues with guest and recurring female characters. However, when Felicia Day’s happily fannish lesbian hacker Charlie Bradbury was introduced last season, everything went right as she helped Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) battle evil Leviathan Dick Roman. Dick, as we …Read On »
