Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Izabella Miko, Kevin McNulty, Gillian Vigman, Debra Lynne McCabe, Clare Filipow, Marcus Rosner Writers: Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John McCarthy Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 18, 2014 SUPERNATURAL goes from the sublime (the previous week’s “Fan Fiction”) to the serviceable with “Ask Jeeves,” a pastiche of CLUE and MURDER, SHE WROTE (visually and verbally name-checked here), with the addition of a monster. The best thing about “Ask Jeeves” – kudos to the editing department – may be the “Then” sequence, i.e., SUPERNATURAL’s catch-up […]Read On »

Stars: David Lyons, Keith David, Summer Glau, James Frain, Jennifer Ferrin, Ryan Wynott, Vinnie Jones, Martin Klebba, Izabella Miko, Anil Kumar, Elliott Gould, Grant Bowler Writers: Tom Wheeler & William Wheeler Director: David Straiton Network: NBC, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: February 28, 2011 It’s impossible to blame the makers of THE CAPE for the distinctly not-final feel of the series finale, “Razer” (spelling is correct). They weren’t expecting their order to get cut from thirteen to ten, let alone having the aired order pared down to nine. As a result, “Razer” sets up some major questions that creator Tom […]Read On »
Stars: David Lyons, Keith David, Summer Glau, James Frain, Jennifer Ferrin, Ryan Wynott, Vinnie Jones, Pruitt Taylor Vince, Chad Lindberg, Izabella Miko Writer: Craig Titley Director: Deran Serafian Network: NBC, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: February 7, 2011 THE CAPE usually has well-structured episodes that have multiple levels and good payoffs, but while “Goggles and Hicks” has a fine guest actor in Pruitt Taylor Vince – and a nicely scary turn from Chad Lindberg as his partner/brother – it feels a bit haphazard overall. A prologue shows us how adept hit men Goggles (Vince) and Hicks (Lindberg) are at their […]Read On »
Given that THE CAPE’s hero Vince Faraday (David Lyons) is heartily upset about being separated from his wife (Jennifer Ferrin) and young son (Ryan Wynott) – whose sulks about Dad’s absence are driving Mom to tears – and he’s stuck helping his carnival protectors with their crimes, it stands to reason he isn’t exactly crazy about the man who got him into this mess: our main villain Peter Fleming, aka Chess (James Frain). In the episode “Dice,” Vince is unsurprisingly unhappy when his advisor Orwell (Summer Glau) points out that Vince will never get home if Fleming dies, since Vince’s only hope of redemption is proving that Fleming, not Vince, is really Chess. When gorgeous Tracy, aka Dice (Mena Suvari) appears on the scene, Vince is put in the truly aggravating position of having to protect Fleming from the vengeful, brilliant young woman.
