Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Kevin R. McNally, Bryan Cuprill, Mary Page Killer, Darcy Belsher Writers: Robert Singer & Jenny Klein, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: March 16, 2012 FRIDAY THE 13TH: THE SERIES was in some ways a forerunner of SUPERNATURAL, with two beleaguered relatives (cousins in FRIDAY) and an older mentor trying like crazy to track down the forces of darkness. In FRIDAY, the supernatural troubles came from a store that sold cursed objects; the protagonists, week after week, had to track down the objects […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 7 – “Repo Man”

Mark Pellegrino in SUPERNATURAL - Season 7 - "Repo Man" | ©2012 The CW/Jack Rowand

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Mark Pellegrino, Russell Sams, Nicole Oliver Writer: Ben Edlund, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 17, 2012 The standalone plot of SUPERNATURAL’s “Repo Man,” scripted by Ben Edlund, dovetails nicely into the arced storyline, featuring Sam (Jared Padalecki) being continuously bedeviled by his visions of Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino). The thematic resonance between the two works well, and having a recurring smartass along for the ride, especially one as insinuatingly menacing as Pellegrino’s Devil in Chief, works even better. Four years ago in […]Read On »

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Paraminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne, Leon Rippy Writer: Jennifer Johnson Director: Paul Edwards Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Feb. 13, 2012 “A couple of things … You just killed a good man and my legs hurt.” – Emerson Hauser (Sam Neill) on the ALCATRAZ episode “Paxton Petty” So that was pretty bad. The quote that I begin this review with was said toward the end of the episode “Paxton Petty” on ALCATRAZ but there were equally as bad lines throughout this episode but this one stuck out the most for […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 7 – “Plucky Pennywhistle’s Magic Menagerie”

Jared Padalecki in SUPERNATURAL - Season 7 - "Plucky Pennywhistle's Magical Menagerie" | ©2011 The CW/Jack Rowand

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Michael Blackman Beck, Jennifer Spence, Jakob Davies Writers: Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Mike Rohl Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 10, 2012 Often, SUPERNATURAL runs into problems when it tries to be deliberately funny, instead of just mixing the humor in with the horror. However, in “Plucky Pennywhistle’s Magic Menagerie,” the script by Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin strikes just the right notes of both humor and terror as Dean (Jensen Ackles) and especially Sam (Jared Padalecki) encounter a situation that’s bizarre even by […]Read On »

TV Review: ALCATRAZ – Season 1 – “Guy Hastings”

Robert Forster in ALCATRAZ - Season 1 - "Guy Hastings" | ©2012 Fox/Liane Hentscher

Cast: Sarah Jones, Jorge Garcia, Sam Neill, Parminder Nagra, Jonny Coyne Writers: Bryan Wynbrandt, Steven Lilien Director:  Charles Beeson Network: Fox, airs Mondays @ 9 p.m. Original Telecast: Jan. 6, 2012 So it isn’t hard to figure out the pattern of storytelling on ALCATRAZ, although granted “Guy Hastings” in terms of the overall plot was a bit of a change as it was a prison guard returning rather than an inmate. The pattern follows this general principal: Madsen (the getting hotter by the episode Sarah Jones) whines about something her father – an inmate in Alcatraz or her family has […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 7 – “The Slice Girls”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Harry Groener, Sara Canning, Kendall Cross, Jill Teed, Alexia Fast Writers: Eugenie Ross-Leming & Brad Buckner, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Jeremy Wanek Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: February 3, 2012 At the end of “The Slice Girls,” it’s hard to believe what we’ve just watched. Not because SUPERNATURAL has once again done some very wacky things with mythology – that’s par for the course – nor that they’ve introduced and killed yet another Winchester relative (even more par for the course). However, given that the Winchester relative in question […]Read On »

As SUPERNATURAL hits the midway point for Season 7 (and the series renewal for another season, though still looking good), it was about time to catch up with one-half of the show’s duo – Jared Padalecki who plays Sam Winchester. CW recently held a party at the Langham Huntington Hotel in Pasadena during the Winter Television Critics Association annual tour and ASSIGNMENT X grabbed a few minutes with Padalecki about the series, his character and the show … and yes I really mean a few minutes. ASSIGNMENT X: What do you want to see happen with Sam the rest of […]Read On »
