Smith Director: Guy Bee     Network: The CW, airs Thursday nights Original Telecast: October 20, 2011 After Nick’s (Louis Hunter) untimely demise last week on THE SECRET CIRCLE, I didn’t expect anything too terribly upbeat this week. There are some interesting additions to the interweaving plot that is building towards something big in the new episode “Wake” and of course another wave of new characters is introduced. So let’s start off […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 7 – “Shut Up, Dr. Phil”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, James Marsters, Charisma Carpenter, Sean Owen Roberts Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Telecast: October 21, 2011 When supernatural shows that are usually dark with hints of humor decide to be lighthearted without committing to going gonzo, the results are usually lightweight. That’s in one way the case with SUPERNATURAL’s episode “Shut Up, Dr. Phil,” but on the other hand, anything that brings together BUFFY and ANGEL alumni James Marsters (Spike) and Charisma Carpenter (Cordelia) automatically has worthwhile qualities.

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 7 – “Defending Your Life”

Faran Tahir in SUPERNATURAL - Season 7 - "Defending Your Life" | ©2011 The CW/Jack Rowand

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Faran Tahir, Alona Tal, Julian D. Christopher, Emilie Ullerup Writers: Adam Glass, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW Original Telecast: October 14, 2011 One of the pleasures of SUPERNATURAL is the show’s flippant entities, as opposed to the I’m-gonna-get-you variety. True, the cheerful off-hand types aren’t always on hand, but when they are – think Mark Sheppard’s Crowley, Richard Speight’s Trickster/Loki/Gabriel and Sebastian Roche’s Balthazar, to name a few – they’re a hoot. We can add to the list Faran Tahir’s Osiris, Egyptian god of judgment, who turns […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Colin Ford, Emma Grabanski, Jewel Staite, Benito Martinez, Cameron Bancroft Writers: Andrew Dabb & Daniel Loflin, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Jensen Ackles Network: The CW Original Telecast: October 7, 2011 SUPERNATURAL lead characters Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) have been all over the map, not only literally and existentially (they’ve been to Hell, Heaven and other dimensions, as well as lots of random places on Earth), but also in terms of their personalities. Sam started out as the sensitive, “let’s hear them out” one and Dean was the […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 7 – “Hello, Cruel World”

Jim Beaver in SUPERNATURAL - Season 7 - "Hello, Cruel World" | ©2011 The CW/Jack Rowand

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Misha Collins, Mark Pellegrino, Kim Rhodes, Cameron Bancroft, Benito Martinez Writer: Ben Edlund, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Guy Bee Network: The CW Original Telecast: September 30, 2011 The SUPERNATURAL episode “Hello, Cruel World” has a lot to recommend it. For starters, the script by Ben Edlund makes diabolically clever use of recycling Dr. Sexy (remember that character?) as a way of providing a hilarious/horrific misinterpreted mission statement to a monster, and by bringing back grumpy but plucky ally Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes), not to mention Mark Pellegrino’s oh-so-relaxed Lucifer.

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Misha Collins, Mark Sheppard, Julian Richings, Mark Pellegrino Writer: Sera Gamble, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Phil Sgriccia Network: The CW, Fridays @ 9 PM Original Telecast: September 30, 2011 There’s nothing like a huge cliffhanger that picks up right where it left off, which is what we thankfully get with SUPERNATURAL’s Season Seven premiere, “Meet the New Boss.” Season Six ended with the angel Castiel (Misha Collins) ascending to godhood after ingesting all the souls in Purgatory. Castiel then demanded that the Winchester brothers, Sam (Jared Padalecki) – who had just […]Read On »

Interview: SUPERNATURAL star Misha Collins elevates his character to a higher being

Big spoiler for those who didn’t see last week’s season premiere of SUPERNATURAL – the angel Castiel, played by Misha Collins, is really not himself. In the Season Six finale, Castiel opened Purgatory and ingested all the souls of creatures within, making himself big-G God. As we learned in the Season Seven opener, “Meet the New Boss,” that kind of diet just doesn’t agree with an angel, either physiologically or ethically, and Cass wound up vomiting most of the souls back from whence they came. Unfortunately, a few really bad ones, the Leviathans, stuck around and have taken control of […]Read On »

Showalter, Writers: Sera Gamble, Eric Kripke, Distributor: Warner Home Video Suggested Retail Price: $69.99 You gotta hand it to Sera Gamble and her writing crew. They took the ball that Eric Kripke gave to them and carried it across the goal line. When Kripke decided that he was no longer going to be the showrunner for SUPERNATURAL, many fans were worried that the show they loved would go down to the toilet or stop completely. Gamble and The CW decided that they wanted a […]Read On »
