Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Rob Benedict, Curtis Armstrong, Tim Kelleher, Sonja Bennett Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: May 4, 2016 The SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “Don’t Call Me Shurley” brings back the elusive Prophet of the Lord Chuck Shurley (Rob Benedict). Except – confirming what has been suspected by viewers if not other characters for a good while now – turns out Chuck is really God. Say what, now? Chuck, who used the pen name of Carver Edlund, has become more and more meta […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Steven Williams, Janet McLean, Holly Elissa, Michele Scarabelli Writers: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Stefan Pleszczynski Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 23, 2016 Jim Beaver’s father-figure character Bobby Singer died back in Season 7, but this being SUPERNATURAL, that’s not necessarily a goodbye. Bobby has since turned up as a ghost and then in Heaven. In the Season 11 episode “Safe House, he’s seen mainly in flashback, as he and fellow Hunter Rufus (Steven Williams) investigated a haunted house a few years back. Now Sam […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “Into the Mystic”

Dee Wallace guest stars on SUPERNATURAL | © 2016 Liane Hentscher/The CW

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 11 – “Baby”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Teach Grant, Sarah-Jane Redmond, Adam Cohen Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 21, 2015 The supposed gimmick in the SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “Baby” is that it’s from the point of view of Dean’s (Jensen Ackles) beloved Chevy Impala. This is a decent idea as far as it goes – we’re in Season 11 of a gonzo show, no reason the car can’t have a viewpoint. Trouble is, no one seems to want to go on record, […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 10 – “Angel Heart”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Kathryn Love Newton, Leisha Hailey, Treva Etienne, Russell Porter Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Steve Boyum Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 29, 2015 “Angel Heart” falls somewhere between moving the arc along and mission of the week. It answers one regular, if not imperative, question, gives Misha Collins as Castiel some big moments and shows us that Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are coping more or less as usual, despite everyone’s continued concern about the Mark of Cain’s influence. As regular SUPERNATURAL […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Curtis Armstrong, Felicia Day, Ruth Connell, Jeff Branson Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: P.J. Pesce Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 15, 2015 It’s been said of SUPERNATURAL – often by fans, sometimes by cast members – that if the Winchester brothers ever permanently learned anything, the show would come to a halt. Based on the events of the Season 10 episode “Book of the Damned,” SUPERNATURAL is in no danger, with Sam (Jared Padalecki) doing several things in an attempt to save Dean (Jensen […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 10 – “There’s No Place Like Home”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Felicia Day, Duncan Fraser, Barclay Hope, Paul McGillion Writers: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 27, 2015 Sometimes it’s not a good sign when the “previously on” recap section feels like it runs as long as an actual episode, but on SUPERNATURAL’s “There’s No Place Like Home,” the reminders are both warranted and worthwhile. Things we need to know for “Home.” 1) Dean (Jensen Ackles) is still struggling with the Mark of Cain, which makes him prone to violence. 2) Dean […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 10 – “Fan Fiction”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Katie Sarife, Joy Regullano, Alyssa Lynch, Rob Benedict Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: November 11, 2014 This reviewer is not often moved to tears, either of hilarity or emotion, nor does she often give out the grade of A. However, in the case of SUPERNATURAL’s two-hundredth episode, “Fan Fiction,” the first occurred and the second is warranted. Written by Robbie Thompson and directed by Phil Sgriccia, what could have easily gone off the rails at every turn is instead hysterically […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Curtis Armstrong, Tahmoh Penikett, Richard Speight Jr. Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 15, 2014 We know right away that the “Meta Fiction” episode of SUPERNATURAL is no ordinary hour of television; not that most episodes of SUPERNATURAL could be described as “ordinary,” but even by this show’s standards, we are cruising into the Straits of Gonzo. The treacherous but genial angel Metatron (Curtis Armstrong), erstwhile scribe of Heaven, clad in a fancy smoking jacket, looks up […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 9 – “First Born”

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 »
