In the case of Season 13 Episode 4’s “The Big Empty,” it’s where angels and demons go when they die. Castiel (Misha Collins) is wandering around this, well, big empty space, trying to find somebody, and eventually wakes up the Entity running the joint. The Entity […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Ruth Connell, Emily Swallow, Rob Benedict, Barbara Eve Harris, Keith Szarabajka Writer: Robert Berens, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John Badham Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: May 17, 2016 There are now and have been other shows where the Devil is an actual onscreen character, but SUPERNATURAL should get some sort of theological fantasy award for bringing him together with God to hash out their issues. Yes, in the Season 11 penultimate episode “We Happy Few,” Lucifer, still in the body of Castiel (Misha Collins) […]Read On »

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 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 »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Curtis Armstrong, Ruth Connell, Kathryn Love Newton Writers: Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John Badham Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 20, 2015 In SUPERNATURAL’s 10th-season winter finale, Dean (Jensen Ackles) had Mark of Cain problems, Sam (Jared Padalecki) had guilt-ridden brother problems, Castiel (Misha Collins) had daughter-of-the-guy-whose-body-he-inhabits problems and Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard) had witchy mother issues. In the series’ January return, “The Hunter Games,” everyone is still grappling with their personal demons. Since the Mark of Cain has […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Timothy Omundson, Rachel Hayward Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John Badham Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 21, 2014 Directed by John Badham – yes, the helmer of the Frank Langella DRACULA, SATURDAY NIGHT FEVER and WARGAMES, among other credits – the SUPERNATURAL episode “First Born” comes up with a surprising yet logical (within the context of the show) bit of mythology, while working buddy comedy from two separate angles. While Dean (Jensen Ackles) is out on the road hunting Gadriel, he […]Read On »
