Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Briana Buckmaster, Brendan Taylor, Chris William Martin, Sarah Dugdale, Steven Yaffee, Troy Skog Writer: Davy Perez, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Amyn Kaderali Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: January 25, 2018 SUPERNATURAL likes to occasionally riff on particular horror movies. The Season 13 episode “Breakdown” is, more or less, SUPERNATURAL’s take on HOSTEL. Hang on, this is still The CW – the ickiness is intense in broadcast TV terms, but it still is broadcast TV. Instead of (as in HOSTEL) guests at an Eastern European cheap hotel being kidnapped and […]Read On »

They are the backbone and basis of the show. This makes it very hard to do a spinoff of SUPERNATURAL, but it doesn’t stop people from trying. Back in Season 9 in 2014, […]Read On »

In our world, powerful half-angel/half-human Jack (Alexander Calvert), worried that he might hurt his friends, has vanished to parts […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Alexander Calvert, Sarah Troyer, Jonathan Cherry, Eric Schweig Writer: Davy Perez, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Nina Lopez-Corrado Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: November 16, 2017 The title of the SUPERNATURAL Season 13’s sixth episode “Tombstone” does refer to the traditional graveyard marker, but it also recalls not just the legendary Old West town, but the movie made about it (with Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp and Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday). No, nobody time-travels there, or even visits a modern incarnation. Instead, it’s a weird reflection of […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 13 – “Advanced Thanatology”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Lisa Berry, Seth Isaac Johnson, Alisen Down Writer: Steve Yockey, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: November 9, 2017 A big part of the charm of SUPERNATURAL is the craziness of its storytelling, which has just gotten loopier over the years. By Season 13, it revels in its own insanity. There may never have been a show where the ostensibly mortal lead characters keep dying and coming back, with the explanations for how and why this happens growing ever more complex. […]Read On »

In the case of Season 13 Episode 4’s “The Big Empty,” it’s where angels and demons go when they die. Castiel (Misha Collins) is wandering around this, well, big empty space, trying to find somebody, and eventually wakes up the Entity running the joint. The Entity […]Read On »
