Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Ruth Connell, Julian Richings Writer: Jeremy Carver, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: May 20, 2015 Let’s face it, all hell has been known to break loose on SUPERNATURAL at almost regular intervals, but in the Season 10 finale, “Brother’s Keeper,” it looks like we may be heading into the realm of the Cthulhu Mythos. For those unfamiliar with H.P. Lovecraft’s legacy, the short version is that it posits Old Ones and Ancient Ones that existed long before the […]Read On »

During its ninth season, SUPERNATURAL had a backdoor pilot for a spin-off in its episode “Bloodlines.” It didn’t work. However, SUPERNATURAL is now successfully in its tenth season and renewed for an eleventh. At a question and answer session with the Television Critics Association on January 11, The CW’s president Mark Pedowitz said that he’s not only still amenable to the possibility of a SUPERNATURAL spin-off, he actively wants one. “I’ve been pretty outspoken in wanting another SUPERNATURAL spin-off,” Pedowitz relates. “It really is in [executive producers] Jeremy Carver and Eric Kripke and Bob Singer’s court what is the best […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Erica Carroll, Travis Aaron Wade, Emily Fonda, Jud Taylor Writer: Jeremy Carver, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 7, 2014 When last we saw our hero Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles), he had been killed.

Sheppard, elevated to regular status this season) had largely engineered this scenario. In SUPERNATURAL’s Season 10 […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Curtis Armstrong, Tahmoh Penikett, Erica Carroll, Shayn Solberg Writer: Jeremy Carver, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: May 20, 2014 SUPERNATURAL arguably hasn’t had a season finale quite as startling as Season 9’s “Do You Believe in Miracles?” since Castiel temporarily became a god and perhaps not since Sam (Jared Padalecki) got locked in Hell. Now, we should have seen this coming, but in all the chaos with trying to get Heaven out of the grasp of Metatron […]Read On »

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Kristen Hager, Helen Colliander, Sergio DeZio Writer: Anna Fricke, adapted for U.S. television by Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke, created for U.K. television by Toby Whithouse Director: Stefan Pleczynski Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: April 7, 2014 When the U.S./Syfy Channel version of BEING HUMAN premiered in 2011 with “There Goes the Neighborhood 1 & 2,” it seemed almost a photocopy of its U.K./BBC predecessor – a vampire, a werewolf and a ghost are roommates. Additionally, the U.S. version seemed to have less humor and more self-pity and sulking among its […]Read On »
