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 10 – “The Things They Carried”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Travis Aaron Wade, Michelle Morgan, Richard de Klerk Writer: Jenny Klein, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John Badham Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 18, 2015 Sooner or later, most action TV series have the old Army buddy episode. This would seem to be difficult on SUPERNATURAL, since neither Sam (Jared Padalecki) nor Dean (Jensen Ackles) has served. Furthermore, with all the flashbacks we’ve seen, it’s getting harder and harder to bring in any significant past relationships we don’t already know about. Castiel, of course, has served as part of […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 10 – “Hibbing 911”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Kim Rhodes, Briana Buckmaster, Morgan Taylor Campbell, Fred Ewanuick Writer: Jenny Klein, story by Jenny Klein & Phil Sgriccia, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Tim Andrew Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: December 2, 2014 SUPERNATURAL is clearly revving its mythology motor, ready to do some big stuff with Dean (Jensen Ackles) and the Mark of Cain he still bears. However, since this is a broadcast series with twenty-two episodes a season, it’s natural that sometimes the show falls back on monster of the week stories, which is fair enough – […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 9 – “#THINMAN”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, A.J. Buckley, Travis Wester, Nicholas Carella, Giovanni Mocibob Writer: Jenny Klein, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Jeannot Szwarc Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 4, 2014 SUPERNATURAL is by now deep in angst, mythology and certain kinds of humor. What it has lost over time is any real sense of horror. Surprisingly, “#THINMAN” supplies a jolt of actual creepiness that’s all the more impressive because, for once, there’s nothing supernatural happening. Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) head to a small town in Washington state, where a young woman […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 9 – “Rock and a Hard Place”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Kim Rhodes, Lindy Booth, Susie Abremeit Writer: Jenny Klein, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John MacCarthy Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 26, 2013 Now and then, in its TV-14 way, SUPERNATURAL likes to get its porn on (one could call it porn parody, but that’s redundant). There are jokes aplenty, the odd magazine and of course the message/clip that the Angel Gabriel left for the Winchesters in “Hammer of the Gods.” In “Rock and a Hard Place,” Dean (Jensen Ackles) himself gets in on the action, and though the […]Read On »

Sheppard, Osric Chau, Ty Olsson, Liane Balaban, Amanda Tapping, Vincent Gale, Tyler Johnston Writer: Jenny Klein, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 16, 2013 SUPERNATURAL comes roaring back from its winter break with a zippy catch-up montage set to Bob Seger’s “Katmandu,” and then launched into “Torn and Frayed,” which is how Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Castiel (Misha Collins) all feel, what with the brothers relatively estranged and Cass trying to cope with urges he doesn’t […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Kevin R. McNally, Bryan Cuprill, Mary Page Killer, Darcy Belsher Writers: Robert Singer & Jenny Klein, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 16, 2012 FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE SERIES was in some ways a forerunner of SUPERNATURAL, with two beleaguered relatives (cousins in FRIDAY) and an older mentor trying like crazy to track down the forces of darkness. In FRIDAY, the supernatural troubles came from a store that sold cursed objects; the protagonists, week after week, had to track down the objects […]Read On »
