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 »

Showalter Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 10, 2012 Did SUPERNATURAL really need to call this episode “What’s Up, Tiger Mommy?” Yes, it’s a parody of the title of Woody Allen’s dubbed Japanese spy parody WHAT’S UP, TIGER LILY? Amy Chua, a Chinese-American woman, wrote a controversial book about child-rearing entitled BATTLE HYMN OF THE TIGER MOTHER. Because this episode involves Linda Tran (Lauren […]Read On »

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, Michael Blackman Beck, Jennifer Spence, Jakob Davies Writers: Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Mike Rohl Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 10, 2012 Often, SUPERNATURAL runs into problems when it tries to be deliberately funny, instead of just mixing the humor in with the horror. However, in “Plucky Pennywhistle’s Magic Menagerie,” the script by Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin strikes just the right notes of both humor and terror as Dean (Jensen Ackles) and especially Sam (Jared Padalecki) encounter a situation that’s bizarre even by […]Read On »

Sheppard, Leslie Odom Jr. Writers: Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Tim Andrew Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Telecast: November 4, 2011 This reviewer cannot pretend to be as much of a SUPERNATURAL fan as the character Becky Rosen (Emily Perkins), so the title of the episode doesn’t spring to mind, but “Season 7, Time for a Wedding!” feels as if it’s returning to familiar territory for this series, and not just because of its meta aspect. For those who don’t […]Read On »

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