With SUPERNATURAL still going strong, the CW Entertainment President Mark Pedowitz spoke today at the 2012 TCA Press Tour about the reasons for bringing it back for an eighth season. “There was no question about it – the guys are great, the show is great and we felt that it deserved another crack,” says Pedowitz who also notes it served as a perfect companion to their new series ARROW. “”We did so well when SMALLVILLE was there [before SUPERNATURAL],” says Pedowitz. “We’re big believers in the show. And in terms of Sam and Dean, there will be a lapse of […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Rachel Miner, Osric Chau, Benito Martinez, Emily Holmes, Adrian Glynn McMorran Writer: Ben Edlund, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Ben Edlund Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: May 4, 2012 Since SUPERNATURAL staffer Ben Edlund is the creator of THE TICK and scripted some of the funniest episodes in modern dramatic series television (“Jaynestown” on FIREFLY and “Smile Time” on ANGEL), when he writes and directs an installment of something, it automatically merits watching. “Reading is Fundamental” isn’t an all-out laugh fest, but it has a ribbon of humor […]Read On »

Sam started out as the sensitive, “let’s hear them out” one and Dean was the […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 7 – “Hello, Cruel World”

Jim Beaver in SUPERNATURAL - Season 7 - "Hello, Cruel World" | ©2011 The CW/Jack Rowand

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Misha Collins, Mark Pellegrino, Kim Rhodes, Cameron Bancroft, Benito Martinez Writer: Ben Edlund, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Guy Bee Network: The CW Original Telecast: September 30, 2011 The SUPERNATURAL episode “Hello, Cruel World” has a lot to recommend it. For starters, the script by Ben Edlund makes diabolically clever use of recycling Dr. Sexy (remember that character?) as a way of providing a hilarious/horrific misinterpreted mission statement to a monster, and by bringing back grumpy but plucky ally Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes), not to mention Mark Pellegrino’s oh-so-relaxed Lucifer.
