SUPERNATURAL has also used the seasonal arc to explore some sibling issues, since these days Dean seems to have less complicated […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mike Farrell, Liane Balaban, Amanda Tapping, Catherine Lough Haggquist, Greg Webb, Brian Markinson Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Paul Edwards Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 28, 2012 SUPERNATURAL has had its cartoonish moments before, but in “Hunteri Heroici,” it goes for the vibe deliberately and literally, with Acme anvils and Road Runner-style painted escape tunnels. This yields some worthy laughs, but not as many as we might expect. We also finally get an explanation for how it is that Sam (Jared Padalecki) is no […]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 »

On SUPERNATURAL, Wednesdays at 9 PM on the CW and now in its eighth season, the Winchester brothers, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), are demon hunters, part of a secret society who take their world-saving duties very seriously.

And now he’s back in tonight’s episode, “Southern Comfort.” Qualls is about to appear on FX’s dark comedy series LEGIT at the start of the new year. At six-foot-two and approximately […]Read On »

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: 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 »

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 »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 8 – “What’s Up, Tiger Mommy?”

Jensen Ackles, Ty Olsson and Misha Collins in SUPERNATURAL - Season 8 - "What's Up, Tiger Mommy? | ©2012 The CW/Diyah Pera

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Osric Chau, Ty Olsson, Lauren Tom, Gerald Plunkett Writers: Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 10, 2012 Did SUPERNATURAL really need to call this episode “What’s Up, Tiger Mommy?” Yes, it’s a parody of the title of Woody Allen’s dubbed Japanese spy parody WHAT’S UP, TIGER LILY? Amy Chua, a Chinese-American woman, wrote a controversial book about child-rearing entitled BATTLE HYMN OF THE TIGER MOTHER. Because this episode involves Linda Tran (Lauren […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark A. Sheppard, Osric Chau, Ty Olsson, Liane Balaban, Lissa Neptuno Writer: Jeremy Carver, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 3, 2012 It seems like Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and the SUPERNATURAL audience just can’t catch a break. Yes, the Season 8 opener, “We Need to Talk About Kevin” admirably gets to the fundamentals of this year’s arc right away and also swiftly reunites the brothers. For those who don’t remember, or are just tuning in, Sam and Dean were separated last […]Read On »
