Harrington, Shannon Lucio, Kevin Brief Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Kevin Hooks Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 22, 2013 With Misha Collins’ desanctified angel Castiel now human, it makes sense that SUPERNATURAL devotes a good portion of an episode to the character coming to terms with his new condition. In “I’m No Angel,” Cass deals with homelessness, hunger, getting an anti-angel warding tattoo (so the other angels can’t track him) – and, oh yeah, sex. Unfortunately for Cass, his […]Read On »

DAYBREAK begins with a wild vehicle chase – not too surprising, as it’s directed by 24 veteran Jon Cassar – then flashes back to show us how Ben (Ryan Eggold), living in a mobile home park after turning his back on conventional success, gets entangled in a web that involves his late father, a twelve-sided dodecahedron and a secret society. The far-reaching themes are a hallmark of DAYBREAK’s co-creator/executive producer Tim Kring (TOUCH, HEROES). What is most unusual about DAYBREAK, with its high production values and pedigree on both sides of the camera – besides Eggold (ENTOURAGE, 90210), stars include […]Read On »
