Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Ty Olsson, Liane Balaban, Jon Gries, Kathleen Munroe, Paul Campbell Writer: Daniel Loughlin, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Nick Copus Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: December 5, 2012 Vampire Benny (Ty Olsson) has been a source of contention between Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) ever since the younger Winchester found out that his big brother had become buds with a reformed bloodsucker since the escape from Purgatory. SUPERNATURAL has also used the seasonal arc to explore some sibling issues, since these days Dean seems to have less complicated […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Kashmir”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: Jim Barnes Director: Charles Beeson Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 19, 2012 Everything that is wrong with REVOLUTION can be summed up in the episode “Kashmir.” Not only did NBC give viewers of the show another empty promise in delivering the confrontation between Monroe (David Lyons) and Miles (Billy Burke), it gave us an entire episode that literally did nothing but move the gang from Point A to Point B with yet more mean, nasty […]Read On »

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 – “Southern Comfort”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, DJ Qualls, Liane Balaban Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Tim Andrew Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 7, 2012 Garth, played by DJ Qualls, is one of SUPERNATURAL’s better recurring characters. He’s true to his own wavelength, he’s a hugger, he’s funny and he brightens up an episode. However, it’s pushing it, as “Southern Comfort” does, to insist that he’s the new Bobby, primarily because there was no good reason to get rid of the original Bobby. It was said in interviews that Sam (Jared Padalecki) and […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “The Children’s Crusade”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: Matt Pitts Director: Charles Beeson Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Nov. 5, 2012 The promos for this week’s REVOLUTION, “The Children’s Crusade,” billed this to be the episode where all the answers you want about the power going off are explained. Haha, that’s funny because none of that happened. Yeah, we got some clues about why it happened – the Department of Defense (or specifically Randall from that organization) teaming up with a small research company […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 8 – “Blood Brother”

Ty Olsson in SUPERNATURAL -Season 7 - "Blood Brothers" | ©2012 The CW/Diyah Pera

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Ty Olsson, Liane Balaban, Athena Karkaris, Patrick Stafford Writer: Ben Edlund, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Guy Bee Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 31, 2012 Given Dean’s (Jensen Ackles) history of a take-no-prisoners attitude toward creatures – he still doesn’t get why absent Prophet of the Lord Kevin is upset that Dean tried to kill Kevin’s mom while she was possessed – there’s a lot of potential in exploring the older Winchester brother’s friendship with a vampire. In fact, the SUPERNATURAL episode “Blood Brother” starts out promisingly […]Read On »

TV Review: REVOLUTION – Season 1 – “Sex and Drugs”

Cast: Billy Burke, Tracy Spirdakos, Giancarlo Esposito, Zak Orth, David Lyons, Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Mitchell, Graham Rogers, Daniella Alonso Writer: David Rambo Director: Steve Boyum Network: NBC, airs Mondays @ 10 p.m. Original Telecast: Oct. 29, 2012 So, how’s that whole “wanting to see the world” thing working out for you Charlie (Tracy Spirdakos)? There were some decent aspects to REVOLUTION this week but as with most of the episodes so far this season, “Sex and Drugs” also had some pointless and fairly stupid aspects as well. After the last episode with Nora (Daniella Alonso) getting shanked by her own […]Read On »

In NBC’s freshman series REVOLUTION, Monday nights at 10 PM, all electricity is gone from the world. Created by Eric Kripke, who executive-produces with J.J. Abrams, with a pilot directed by fellow executive producer Jon Favreau, REVOLUTION takes place fifteen years after “the lights went out.” Much of the former United States is ruled by militias. However, a small band of people are trying to find out what really happened and restore power – both electronic and personal – to the populace. Two of the main characters are the uncle and niece team of Miles Matheson, played by Billy Burke, […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 8 – “Bitten”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Leigh Parker, Brit Sheridan, Brandon W. Jones, David Lewis Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 24, 2012 As someone pointed out, video isn’t “footage,” which refers to actual film. With “Bitten,” SUPERNATURAL takes a bite out of the found-video genre, which is so-so. On the one hand, episode writer Robbie Thompson and director Thomas J. Wright seem to want to make a little horror movie of their own, going so far as to hold all credits (even those for […]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 »
