Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Lisa Berry, Seth Isaac Johnson, Alisen Down Writer: Steve Yockey, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: November 9, 2017 A big part of the charm of SUPERNATURAL is the craziness of its storytelling, which has just gotten loopier over the years. By Season 13, it revels in its own insanity. There may never have been a show where the ostensibly mortal lead characters keep dying and coming back, with the explanations for how and why this happens growing ever more complex. […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “Our Little World”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Curtis Armstrong, Samantha Isler Writer: Robert Berens, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 11, 2015 After the relative indecisiveness of the previous SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode, “Thin Lizzie,” there was no reason to expect anything mythically huge in “Our Little World.” However, it’s as if someone said to the creative staff, “Go big or go home.” Hint: they have not gone home. “Our Little World” takes on nothing less than Creation and makes the stakes as mighty […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark A. Sheppard, Ruth Connell, Stephen Daniel Curtis, Catherine Michaud, Rachel Keller, Teryl Rothery Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 25, 2015 There are two separate plotlines in SUPERNATURAL’s “Paint It Black” (not to be confused with the Season 10 opener, titled simply “Black”). In one, Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki) investigate a case of possession at a Catholic church/abbey. In the other, Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard) finally indulges his mother Rowena’s (Ruth Connell) […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 10 – “Halt & Catch Fire”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Ali Milner, Barbara Kottmeier, Jeremy Thorsen Writers: Eric Charmelo & Nicole Snyder, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 10, 2015 Even on SUPERNATURAL, there have to be some episodes that are just so-so. Not great, not awful, not crazy, just the show doing what it does when nobody is feeling particularly inspired that week, though everyone is still perfectly competent. “Halt & Catch Fire” (not to be confused with the brilliant-every-episode AMC series of that title) is such an episode. Sam (Jared […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, DJ Qualls, Sarah Smyth, Tom Butler, Eve Gordon Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 28, 2014 There’s been a lot going on this season of SUPERNATURAL, what with Sam (Jared Padalecki) being possessed by and then exorcised of a homicidal angel, Dean (Jensen Ackles) acquiring the Mark of Cain, Castiel regaining his wings, Crowley fighting to remain King of Hell and poor Kevin being murdered. However, it has occurred to us and the Winchesters to wonder what the heck has happened to erstwhile buddy Garth […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 9 – “I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here” – Season Premiere

Jared Padalecki in SUPERNATURAL - Season 9 - "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here" | ©2013 The CW/Liane Hentscher

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Jim Beaver, Julian Richings, Tahmoh Penikett, Grace Phipps Writer: Jeremy Carver, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 8, 2013 Just in case any SUPERNATURAL fans were worried, rest assured that Season 9 gets off to a crazier than a bag of WINNIE THE POOH heffalumps and woozles, with Sam (Jared Padalecki), Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Castiel (Misha Collins) all having their own separate bizarre adventures. And wow, is Sam going to be angry (and – oh nooooo – probably sulky) […]Read On »

Stars: Tom Mison, Nicole Beharie, Orlando Jones, Katia Winter, Lyndie Greenwood, Nicholas Gonzalez, Marti Matulis, Matt Medrano, Michael Teh Writer: Jose Molina, story by Phillip Iscove, series created by Phillip Iscove & Alex Kurtzman & Roberto Orci & Len Wiseman Director: John F. Showalter Network: Fox, Mondays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: September 30, 2013 Fox’s SLEEPY HOLLOW, three episodes in, looks like a winner. The show’s tone is somewhere between THE X-FILES and SUPERNATURAL, even evoking the joy of the original classic NIGHT STALKER. The characters have a proper sense of dread and respect for procedure, but they’re perfectly […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 8 – “Freaks and Geeks”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Madison McLaughlin, Adam DiMarco, Megan Danso, Adrian Hough Writer: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 27, 2013 After the emotional and structural intensity of SUPERNATURAL’s previous episode “Goodbye, Stranger,” whatever came next was likely to pale in comparison, but “Freaks and Geeks” wouldn’t be particularly winning no matter where it was placed in the season (and it could have gone practically anywhere). It puts Sam (Jared Padalecki) and especially Dean (Jensen Ackles) in the role of worried surrogate dads/big brothers […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 8 – “Man’s Best Friend With Benefits”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Christian Campbell, Mishael Morgan, Curtis Caravaggio, Serge Houde Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Leming-Ross, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 21, 2013 Lord (and Prophet of) knows that not every episode of SUPERNATURAL needs to be filled with suspense, pathos or even humor; likewise, not every episode needs to advance the seasonal arc. Indeed, “Man’s Best Friend With Benefits” does resolve the mini-drama begun in “Trial and Error,” with Dean (Jensen Ackles) wanting to die for Sam (Jared Padalecki) and worried that […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 8 – “Heartache”

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 »
