Mark Sheppard is one of television’s reigning kings of returning characters. As CW’s SUPERNATURAL fans know, Sheppard’s character Crowley was also King of Hell for awhile, though he got demoted and then almost smote when angel Castiel (Misha Collins) ascended to godhood in the Season Six finale. The London-born Sheppard will be back in SUPERNATURAL’s upcoming seventh season and recently returned as Jim Sterling in the summer finale LEVERAGE. Right now, though, he’s talking about Crowley, who started out as a Crossroads Demon – or did he? The British-born Sheppard has some interesting theories about this – but he’s wary […]Read On »

On TNT’s LEVERAGE, airing its summer finale tonight at 9 PM, Timothy Hutton’s former insurance investigator Nathan Ford rides herd on a small team of con artists who pool their various skills in the service of doing the right thing. Not much rattles Ford, but we can see his spine stiffen whenever a male British voice utters the words, “Hello, Nate.” The voice belongs to Ford’s former colleague and frenemy Jim Sterling, played by English actor Mark Sheppard, who recurs on LEVERAGE to alternately thwart, aid and aggravate Nate and Company .Sterling appears in “The Queen’s Gambit Job,” which serves […]Read On »

CD Review: THE SENDER soundtrack (1,500 limited edition)

THE SENDER soundtrack | ©2011 La La Land Records

Ever since his mystical synthesizers conjured the fog that King Uther rode on to begat Arthur in EXCALIBUR, composer Trevor Jones has had a distinctive charm of making for walls of hypnotic sound, their haunting, yet gently rolling sustains and siren voices for such scores as DARK CITY, ANGEL HEART and HIDEAWAY leading to some dark epiphany on the other side of reality. In the case of 1982’s THE SENDER, Jones’ ghostly melodic washes are the eerie visions that a young mental patient projects onto those unfortunate enough to be in his range. While there are any number of jarring […]Read On »

So what’s the scoop on Season 7 of SUPERNATURAL? The cast and executive producers were keeping the secrets close to the vest during their press rounds at the 2011 Comic-Con, but we were still able to get some info out of them. Executive producer Sera Gamble says that the first episode back in Season 7 will find Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) still reeling from the events of the cliffhanger that found their friend/angel Castiel (Misha Collins) turning bad. “They are reeling from what’s been going on with this character that they’ve been best friends with,” says Gamble.

WAKING NIGHTMARES by Christopher Golden | ©2011 Ace Mass Market

Writer: Christopher Golden Price: $7.99 Publisher: Ace Mass Market Paperback Original Novelist Christopher Golden began the series collectively known as THE SHADOW SAGA with OF SAINTS AND SHADOWS, published in 1994. There has been a substantial gap between the fourth tome, 2003’s THE GATHERING DARK, and the present. Now Golden has brought forth a new installment, WAKING NIGHTMARES, which should appeal equally to fans of what has come before and readers plunging into this world for the first time. Peter Octavian is a former vampire and current wizard whose successful efforts to save the world have ironically led to a […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 6 – “The Man Who Knew Too Much” – Season Finale

Cast: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Misha Collins, Mark Sheppard Writer: Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW, Airs Fridays Original Telecast:  May 20, 2011 I wonder if next season we’ll get a Rapture-based episode of SUPERNATURAL – it seems like exactly the type of fare that would fit perfectly with the show. It seems like Season 6 of SUPERNATURAL has been a number of seasons put into one. First, it was Sam (Jared Padalecki) returning from Hell with no soul and working with Samuel, who was in turn working with Crowley (Mark Sheppard), to hunt and gather […]Read On »

Cast: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Jim Beaver, Misha Collins, Mark Sheppard Writer: Sera Gamble Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Airs Fridays Original Telecast:  May 20, 2011 The two-hour season finale of SUPERNATURAL is actually two single serving episodes that they decided to air back-to-back. The penultimate episode to Season 6, “Let it Bleed,” gives us the run-up to the final showdown – at least presumably – between the Winchesters boys and the partnership between Crowley (Mark Sheppard), king of Hades, and Castiel (Misha Collins), the boys’ favorite angel that has gone rogue in his quest to win the […]Read On »

The CW Network was the last presentation at New York’s upfronts today as the unveiled their 2011-2012 schedule.

Cast: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Jim Beaver, Amber Benson Director: John Showalter Writers: Adam Glass Network: The CW, Airs Fridays Original Telecast: April 29, 2011 “Jefferson Starships … because they are horrible and hard to kill.” – Dean (Jensen Ackles) in SUPERNATURAL “Mommy Dearest” Dean had some great one-liners in “Mommy Dearest” on SUPERNATURAL this week. One of my other favorites was when he found out Castiel (Misha Collins) didn’t have any powers he said “Without your powers, you’re like a baby in a trench coat.” Hilarious. The Jefferson Starships line refers to Dean naming the hybrid creatures […]Read On »

Authenticity.” – Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) in SUPERNATURAL “Frontierland” I guess it was only a matter of time before we got an Old West version of SUPERNATURAL. Given we have had a monster movie episode, future timeline episodes, going into the ’70s and ’80s episodes and alternate universe episodes, the Old West was fair game. “Frontierland” focuses on Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) […]Read On »
