Bobby has since turned up as a ghost and then in Heaven. In the Season 11 episode “Safe House, he’s seen mainly in flashback, as he and fellow Hunter Rufus (Steven Williams) investigated a haunted house a few years back. Now Sam […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Aleks Paunovic, Jackie Debatin, Mike “The Miz” Mizanin, Aidan Kahn, Bethany Brown Writers: John Bring & Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Jerry Wanek Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 24, 2016 The SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “Beyond the Mat” has it both ways – it’s a perfectly good procedural with the boys, while moving the plot forward with ex-King of Hell Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard) and current down-under ruler Lucifer (Misha Collins). On the more or less standalone side, Dean (Jensen Ackles) proposes […]Read On »

TV REVIEW: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “Love Hurts”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Emily Swallow, Luciana Carro, Jim Thorburn, Venus Terzo, Zoe Fraser Writers: Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 27, 2016 The SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “Love Hurts” is and isn’t a standalone episode. The creature of the week here and how it operates is essential in getting Dean (Jensen Ackles) to open up to brother Sam (Jared Padalecki) about his bond with God’s sister Amara (Emily Swallow). This is good. The mechanism of revelation, however, requires a fairly complicated […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “Into the Mystic”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Shoshannah Stern, Dee Wallace, Jonathan Potts Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John Badham Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 27, 2016 SUPERNATURAL, should it need saying, doesn’t have the most fabulous track record with female characters. The Season 11 episode “Into the Mystic” can’t on its own compensate for all that, but it at least passes the Bechdel test some of the time, with two guest women, Aileen (Shoshannah Stern) and Mildred (Dee Wallace), conferring over how to take out a banshee when they’re not […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “The Devil in the Details”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Mark Pellegrino, Ruth Connell, Emily Swallow, Colin Ford, Lisa Berry Valerie Tian Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 20, 2016 Historically, Lucifer has a reputation as a tempter, which he upholds mightily in the SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “The Devil in the Details.” The Devil, in this instance, as played by Mark Pellegrino, would actually like to be in Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) in order to use him as a vessel. Hey, it almost […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark A. Sheppard, Ruth Connell, Emily Swallow, Mark Pellegrino Writers: Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer. Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: December 9, 2015 The Season 11 SUPERNATURAL episode “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” is a little like one of those inquiries where each response is met with another “Why?” The title refers specifically to Amara’s (Emily Swallow), aka Darkness, quest to find her brother – that is, God – but by the end, we’ve got plenty of questions of our own. Is Amara’s […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “Just My Imagination”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Nate Torrence, Carrie Genzel, Dylan Kingwell, Dylan Everett, Anja Savcic Writer: Jenny Klein, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Richard Speight, Jr. Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: December 2, 2015 SUPERNATURAL normally doesn’t do heartwarming (it’s much more inclined toward heart-ripping, in the literal sense). However, in the Season 11 episode “Just My Imagination,” the show goes surprisingly warm and fuzzy, with charming results. We see a little girl having a tea party in her well-appointed room. The child, but not her parents, can see her companion Sparkle, a unicorn man […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “Plush”

Jensen Ackles as Dean in SUPERNATURAL - Season 11 | ©2015 The CW/Liane Hentscher

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Briana Buckmaster, Brigid Brannagh, Brendan Taylor, Adrian Glynn McMorran, Logan Williams Writers: Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Tim Andrew Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 18, 2015 On most shows, not every episode is a masterpiece. Sometimes there are procedural grinders, and so it is with the SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “Plush.” Writers Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder and director Tim Andrew have devised a forum for some wonderfully creepy imagery that provides the requisite dose of horror, but as far as plots go, this […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “Our Little World”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Curtis Armstrong, Samantha Isler Writer: Robert Berens, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 11, 2015 After the relative indecisiveness of the previous SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode, “Thin Lizzie,” there was no reason to expect anything mythically huge in “Our Little World.” However, it’s as if someone said to the creative staff, “Go big or go home.” Hint: they have not gone home. “Our Little World” takes on nothing less than Creation and makes the stakes as mighty […]Read On »

Jared Padalecki as Sam and Jensen Ackles as Dean and Jared Padalecki as Sam in SUPERNATURAL - Season 11 - "Thin Lizzie" | ©2015 The CW/Katie Yu

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jared Gertner, Tess Atkins, Yasmeene Lily-Elle Ball, Thomas Jones Writer: Nancy Won, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Rashaad Ernesto Green Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 4, 2015 Does everyone who loses their soul behave the same way? Given the mythology of SUPERNATURAL, it’s certainly a worthy question, and it’s at the center of the Season 11 episode “Thin Lizzie.” “Thin Lizzie” starts as a combination of who/whatdunit, as Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) head to Massachusetts to investigate an axe murder in Lizzie Borden’s historical home, now […]Read On »
