Wright Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: May 11, 2016 Alas, Metatron (Curtis Armstrong). Yes, you were a Grade A jerk (editorial policy forbids a stronger term) for multiple seasons, but you were always entertaining. This season, you’ve been comedy gold, and went out a hero for nothing less than the cause of God and humanity (and probably the Earth’s crust and plankton and other things, […]Read On »

Sheppard, Emily Swallow, Ruth Connell, Mark Pellegrino Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 6, 2016 The SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “Hell’s Angel” deals mainly with Lucifer in the body of Castiel (Misha Collins). Mark Pellegrino makes a welcome if slightly illogical appearance as the previous version of Lucifer. Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard) gets his hands on a sacred shofar, a Hebrew relic that belonged to God. (People familiar with shofars will be surprised […]Read On »

Wright Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: October 20, 2016 One of the pleasures of the SUPERNATURAL Season 12 episode “Mamma Mia” is seeing that Samantha Smith, as Mary Winchester, mother of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), fits comfortably into the ensemble. The actress is likable, neither over the top nor stiff. Mary comes across as vulnerable […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark A. Sheppard, Ruth Connell, Emily Swallow, Mark Pellegrino Writers: Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer. Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: December 9, 2015 The Season 11 SUPERNATURAL episode “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” is a little like one of those inquiries where each response is met with another “Why?” The title refers specifically to Amara’s (Emily Swallow), aka Darkness, quest to find her brother – that is, God – but by the end, we’ve got plenty of questions of our own. Is Amara’s […]Read On »

This is the case in SUPERNATURAL’s Season 11’s “The Bad Seed.” An anonymous angel and a likewise random demon start to face off at a […]Read On »

We lose a major and well-loved (by most) character, we find out the resonant mythic background of the evil and […]Read On »

Showalter Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 25, 2015 There are two separate plotlines in SUPERNATURAL’s “Paint It Black” (not to be confused with the Season 10 opener, titled simply “Black”). In one, Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) investigate a case of possession at a Catholic church/abbey. In the other, Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard) finally indulges his mother Rowena’s (Ruth Connell) […]Read On »

Sheppard) had witchy mother issues. In the series’ January return, “The Hunter Games,” everyone is still grappling with their personal demons. Since the Mark of Cain has […]Read On »

Sheppard) suffering from unreciprocated friendly feelings towards Dean, etc. “Soul Survivor” ties up most of this. There are some moments of epic weirdness – Crowley saves Castiel?! – but […]Read On »
