Sheppard, Ruth Connell, Rob Benedict, Emily Swallow, Lisa Berry, Elizabeth Blackmore Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: May 25, 2016 The SUPERNATURAL Season 11 finale, “Alpha and Omega,” goes for the emotion. Yeah, we’ve kinda-sorta been here before, but once in awhile, it’s okay to hug. Also, even though the audience knows if Season 12 is coming, there’s a good chance that the universe won’t end after all, the characters have to believe the end is nigh […]Read On »

Sheppard, Ruth Connell, Emily Swallow, Rob Benedict, Barbara Eve Harris, Keith Szarabajka Writer: Robert Berens, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John Badham Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: May 17, 2016 There are now and have been other shows where the Devil is an actual onscreen character, but SUPERNATURAL should get some sort of theological fantasy award for bringing him together with God to hash out their issues. Yes, in the Season 11 penultimate episode “We Happy Few,” Lucifer, still in the body of Castiel (Misha Collins) […]Read On »

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 »

Meet the Bisaan, a “cicada-based” species that, like the locust, comes along infrequently but wreaks devastation when it does. There’s a nice little fakeout at the beginning of “The Chitters.” We’re on the outskirts of a small town in Colorado, where we meet 12-year-old Jesse (Valin Shinyei) […]Read On »
