Pesce Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: May 6, 2014 After the previous week’s backdoor pilot, SUPERNATURAL gets back to business with “King of the Damned,” which gives us both Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard) fighting for his hellish throne and Castiel (Misha Collins) trying to get through to Gadreel (Tahmoh Penikett). Crowleyhas the flashier and bloodier story.Crowleyfinds himself trapped by his rival, the Knight of […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark A. Sheppard, Kavan Smith, Rebecca Marshall, Nicole “Snooki’ Polizzi Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Serge Ladouceur Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 18, 2014 With “Blade Runners,” SUPERNATURAL moves the season arc forward, resolves a mini-arc, has a great guest star and no visible sulking. As the characters would say, it’s a win-win. King of Hell Crowley(Mark A. Sheppard) has developed an addiction to human blood, largely thanks to the actions of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) while he was their […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 9 – “Holy Terror”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Curtis Armstrong, Stephen Monroe Taylor Writers: Eugenie Leming-Ross & Brad Buckner, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: December 3, 2013 The Season 9 arc of SUPERNATURAL takes a great leap forward with “Holy Terror.” By the episode’s end, we have lost one major character, learned that another is not who he seems, someone else is transformed and poor Dean (Jensen Ackles) ends up in the metaphorical creek without a paddle or even a boat. Factions of angels are slaughtering each other. […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 9 – “I’m No Angel”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Adam J. Harrington, Shannon Lucio, Kevin Brief Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Kevin Hooks Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 22, 2013 With Misha Collins’ desanctified angel Castiel now human, it makes sense that SUPERNATURAL devotes a good portion of an episode to the character coming to terms with his new condition. In “I’m No Angel,” Cass deals with homelessness, hunger, getting an anti-angel warding tattoo (so the other angels can’t track him) – and, oh yeah, sex. Unfortunately for Cass, his […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Mark A. Sheppard, Osric Chau, Ty Olsson, Amanda Tapping, Assaf Cohen Writers: Eugenie Leming-Ross & Brad Buckner, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Guy Norman Bee Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 27, 2013 An appearance from Jim Beaver as Bobby Singer is always a noteworthy event – to paraphrase Art Mullen on JUSTIFIED, speaking of Beaver’s character on that series, let us take a moment to acknowledge this guy is awesome. Bobby died last season, and the boys even burned his bones when his ghost started turning to […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 8 – “Man’s Best Friend With Benefits”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Christian Campbell, Mishael Morgan, Curtis Caravaggio, Serge Houde Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Leming-Ross, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. 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 »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 8 – “A Little Slice of Kevin”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, DJ Qualls, Liane Balaban Writer: Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckne, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Charles Robert Carner Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 14, 2012 Castiel (Misha Collins) is back on SUPERNATURAL. Naturally, instead of rejoicing, Dean (Jensen Ackles) is filled with suspicion – how the hell did Cass get out of Purgatory? – and guilt, because Dean didn’t get Cass out of Purgatory himself. This happens in the midst of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean trying to track down the connection between seven people who have vanished in […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 8 – “Heartache”

Liane Balaban and Jared Padalecki in SUPERNATURAL - Season 7 - "Heartache" | ©2012 The CW/Jack Rowand

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Kyra Zagorsky, Liane Balaban, Patty McCormack, Alan Ackles Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross Leming, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Jensen Ackles Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 17, 2012 SUPERNATURAL tends to be a series with season-long arcs (sometimes multi-season-long arcs), but every now and then, it offers an episode that is almost entirely procedural. Such is the case with “Heartache.” Yes, Sam (Jared Padalecki) is making noises about wanting to hang up his hunting spurs and live a normal life once he and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have found […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 7 – “Of Grave Importance”

Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki in SUPERNATURAL - Season 7 - "Of Grave Importance" | ©2012 The CW/Jack Rowand

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Jamie Luner, Anthony Cupo, Elysia Rotaru Writer: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Tim Andrew Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 20, 2012 SUPERNATURAL has its conventions (i.e., plot devices, though it also has fan gatherings, but that’s another story). Some of these are good, some of these are bad, and some make many of us want to smack the TV screen. Among these last is the tendency among main characters to overlook everything that’s happened in the past seven seasons so they can […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Harry Groener, Sara Canning, Kendall Cross, Jill Teed, Alexia Fast Writers: Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Jeremy Wanek Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 3, 2012 At the end of “The Slice Girls,” it’s hard to believe what we’ve just watched. Not because SUPERNATURAL has once again done some very wacky things with mythology – that’s par for the course – nor that they’ve introduced and killed yet another Winchester relative (even more par for the course). However, given that the Winchester relative in question […]Read On »
