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 »

In fact, the SUPERNATURAL episode “Blood Brother” starts out promisingly […]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 »

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.
