Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Lesley Nicol, Dylan Everett, Mark Acheson, Madeleine Arthur, Kehli O’Byrne, Jason Wingham Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Serge Ladouceur Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 3, 2015 There may be another show out there that could combine movies like BIG and 16 AGAIN with the Hansel & Gretel legend, but SUPERNATURAL is the one that actually does it. The result, “About a Boy,” is entertaining and amusing, although it doesn’t give itself enough time to play with its premise. When people in a small Oregon town start […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 10 – “Paper Moon”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Brit Sheridan, Emily Tennant Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Jeannot Szwarc Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 28, 2014 After everything that went down at the end of Season 9 and the start of Season 10, it’s understandable that SUPERNATURAL would want to give the Winchesters a little breathing room to settle down and talk to each other. Of course, there can’t be an entire episode of this, which is why “Paper Moon” also has werewolves in it. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are chilling […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 9 – “Mother’s Little Helper”

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, Blake Gibbons, Sean Michael Kyer, Kavin Konoval, Dylan Everett, Erin Karpluk Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Kevin Banks Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 19, 2013 In an episode that is about as standalone as it’s possible for a SUPERNATURAL Season 9 episode to be, “Bad Boys” brings us to the home for delinquent youths where Dean (Jensen Ackles) spent two months in his teen years. Sonny (Blake Gibbons), who still runs the place, phones “D-Dog,” as he calls Dean, because he’s got an inexplicable death on […]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 »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 8 – “As Time Goes By”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Gil McKinney, Alanna Hoffman, George Touliatos Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Serge Ladouceur Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Telecast: January 30, 2013 By now, we know quite a lot about Samuel, the father of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean’s (Jensen Ackles) late mother Mary. 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 »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 8 – “Southern Comfort”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, DJ Qualls, Liane Balaban Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Tim Andrew Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 7, 2012 Garth, played by DJ Qualls, is one of SUPERNATURAL’s better recurring characters. He’s true to his own wavelength, he’s a hugger, he’s funny and he brightens up an episode. However, it’s pushing it, as “Southern Comfort” does, to insist that he’s the new Bobby, primarily because there was no good reason to get rid of the original Bobby. It was said in interviews that Sam (Jared Padalecki) and […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 7 – “Party On, Garth”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, DJ Qualls, Terry David Mulligan Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 30, 2012 Sometimes when SUPERNATURAL tries to do a funny episode, it pushes too hard. However, the tone of “Party On, Garth,” written by Adam Glass and directed by Phil Sgriccia, hits just the right notes. The premise combines two seeming SUPERNATURAL inevitabilities – a J-horror ghost and a monster (in this case, the aforementioned ghost) that can only be seen by people who are drunk. Garth (DJ Qualls), […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Kevin R. McNally, Madison McLoughlin, Ian Tracey Writer:Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Jeannot Szwarc Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 6, 2012 In a note that is both poignant and funny, SUPERNATURAL‘s first new episode of 2012 – “Adventures in Babysitting” – shows that Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) do literally almost nothing for three weeks after the death of father figure Bobby. Dean, drinking more heavily than usual, decides to go visit Bobby’s conspiracy-monger associate Frank (Kevin R. McNally) to find out the meaning of […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 7 – “Defending Your Life”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Faran Tahir, Alona Tal, Julian D. Christopher, Emilie Ullerup Writers: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW Original Telecast: October 14, 2011 One of the pleasures of SUPERNATURAL is the show’s flippant entities, as opposed to the I’m-gonna-get-you variety. True, the cheerful off-hand types aren’t always on hand, but when they are – think Mark Sheppard’s Crowley, Richard Speight’s Trickster/Loki/Gabriel and Sebastian Roche’s Balthazar, to name a few – they’re a hoot. We can add to the list Faran Tahir’s Osiris, Egyptian god of judgment, who turns […]Read On »
