Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Lee Rumohr, Hugo Ateo, Kandyse McClure, Andy Maton Writer: Nancy Won, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Eduardo Sanchez Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 27, 2016 The SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “The Chitters” presents us with a relatively intriguing monster of the week. Meet the Bisaan, a “cicada-based” species that, like the locust, comes along infrequently but wreaks devastation when it does. There’s a nice little fakeout at the beginning of “The Chitters.” We’re on the outskirts of a small town in Colorado, where we meet 12-year-old Jesse (Valin Shinyei) […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jared Gertner, Tess Atkins, Yasmeene Lily-Elle Ball, Thomas Jones Writer: Nancy Won, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Rashaad Ernesto Green Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 4, 2015 Does everyone who loses their soul behave the same way? Given the mythology of SUPERNATURAL, it’s certainly a worthy question, and it’s at the center of the Season 11 episode “Thin Lizzie.” “Thin Lizzie” starts as a combination of who/whatdunit, as Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) head to Massachusetts to investigate an axe murder in Lizzie Borden’s historical home, now […]Read On »

The […]Read On »

On the other hand, these choices are almost entirely separate – albeit Sally confides in Aidan and he gives her advice – […]Read On »

TV Review: BEING HUMAN – Season 1 – “You’re the One That I Haunt”

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Kristen Hager, Sarah Allen, Gianpaolo Venuta Writer: Nancy Won Director: Erik Canuel Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: April 4, 2011 There are plenty of dramatic events in the BEING HUMAN episode “You’re the One That I Haunt,” but they’ll probably play better for those who haven’t seen the original, because this hews very closely to the template in two of the plot threads, while being rather brief with the third. As the episode opens, ghost Sally (Meagan Rath) is much the worse for wear after a mostly-failed exorcism attempt […]Read On »

TV Review: BEING HUMAN – Season 1 – “Going Dutch”

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Kristen Hager, Sarah Allen, Gianpaolo Venuta, Vincent Leclerc, Angela Galuppo, Terry Kinney Writer: Chris Dingess Director: Erik Canuel Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 28, 2011 In BEING HUMAN’s episode “Going Dutch,” our three leads’ stories all take big jumps forward. For werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington), it’s panic time when girlfriend Nora (Kristen Hager) tells him she’s pregnant – not because he doesn’t want commitment, but because he’s afraid he’s passing along his wolf genes (which he still hasn’t told Nora about). Ghost Sally (Meaghan Rath) has an unpleasant […]Read On »

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Sarah Allen, Terry Kinney, Vlasta Vrana Writers: Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke Director: Paolo Barzman Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 21, 2011 In “Dog Eat Dog,” the U.S. BEING HUMAN again enters new territory and is again the better for it. Show runners Jeremy Carver & Anna Fricke have crafted an episode with good suspense, surprises and no dead spots. As a bonus, director Paolo Barzman is a veteran of HIGHLANDER: THE SERIES, which means he’s an old, deft hand at the 1940s flashbacks that show a very […]Read On »

Allowing curiosity (and perhaps boredom) to overcome her fear, Sally finally explores the haunted hospital wing further and comes upon a message, albeit not left for her, from Nick, who she knew in life. Sally finds Nick at the beach. It turns out they both had wild […]Read On »
