In “Despair,” there’s a lot of the title sentiment, but there’s also true happiness and love. Jack (Alexander Calvert) is having a lot of physical problems, as he’s turned himself into a living bomb. He was meant to die taking out Chuck/God and Chuck’s […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Alexander Calvert, Rob Benedict, Emily Swallow, Rachel Miner, Alessandro Juliani, Carmen Moore Writer: Meredith Glynn, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Catriona McKenzie Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: October 29, 2020 You have to hand it to SUPERNATURAL. Sometimes, they actually do go off the rails. Because this happens, it’s especially easy for them to do some expert misdirection, and with “Unity,” they show how they’ve done it. You know how Team Winchester has spent the season trying to fight Chuck, aka God (Rob Benedict)? That one’s easy. Remember […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Lisa Berry, Christian Michael Cooper, Paxton Singleton, Elle McKinnon, Liam Hughes, Kelsey Crane, Ryan Alexander McDonald Writer: Meghan Fitzmartin, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Amyn Kaderali Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: October 22, 2020  With this being the fifth-to-last episode of SUPERNATURAL, the episode “Drag Me Away (From You)” naturally … goes back to 1993, where we see the guys as youngsters. This kinda/sorta informs the present, though not as much as it should, giving the timing. The bigger news here is that Dean (Jensen Ackles) is really doubling down […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 15 – “Gimme Shelter”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins Alexander Calvert, Emily Swallow, Steve Bacic, Nicole Munoz, Sara Southey, Meghan Drew, Adam Beauchesne, Mark Dozlaw Writer: Davy Perez, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Matt Cohen Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: October 15, 2020 With so few episodes left to go, it’s a little odd that the SUPERNATURAL segment “Gimme Shelter” seems to inch the series arc along only slightly. Yes, the case of the week kinda/sorta has something to do with Castiel’s (Misha Collins) emotional journey, but a lot of it moves Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam […]Read On »

SUPERNATURAL: Actor Misha Collins gives the scoop on the end of the series – Exclusive Interview

When Misha Collins first appeared on SUPERNATURAL in its fourth-season premiere way back in 2008, nobody – including Collins – had any idea that he’d become a series regular. However, in SUPERNATURAL’s fifteenth and final season, now airing Thursday nights on The CW, Collins’s angel Castiel has become a beloved and essential part of Team Winchester, which currently consists of monster-fighting brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), plus half-human/half-angel Jack (Alexander Calvert), who is sort of Castiel’s adopted son. As SUPERNATURAL viewers know, our heroes are currently involved in fighting none other than God, aka Chuck (Rob Benedict), […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 15 – “Last Holiday”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Alexander Calvert, Meagan Fay, Kavan Smith Writer: Jeremy Adams, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Eduardo Sanchez Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: October 8, 2020  “Last Holiday” is Episode 14 in SUPERNATURAL’s fifteenth and final season. As such, we might expect something a little weightier, or at least a little bit more on the “what do we do about God/Chuck” track. Instead, “Last Holiday” is a relatively light bottle episode that only leaves the bunker for one quick fight and a few montage shots of the boys kicking in doors. It’s […]Read On »

For one thing, it just won an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for Season 5, Episode 4. For another, LINE OF DUTY deals with a subject that U.S. police dramas so far won’t touch as a series premise: Internal Affairs. […]Read On »

MARVEL’S AGENTS OF SHIELD is now in its seventh and final season, Wednesday nights on ABC. The series seemed to have wrapped up conclusively at the end of Season 5, then got renewed for two more seasons. The result was that AGENTS OF SHIELD Seasons 6 and 7 were produced almost back to back, so that production on the show actually ended last summer, even though we’re only getting the ultimate run now. Drew Z. Greenberg joined AGENTS OF SHIELD in Season 2 as a writer/co-executive producer, and became an executive producer beginning with Season 6. Greenberg’s first staff writing […]Read On »
