Cast: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Jim Beaver Writers: Andrew Dabb, Daniel Loflin, Jackson Stewart Director: Guy Norman Bee Network: The CW, Airs Fridays Original Telecast: April 22, 2011 “You know what that is? 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 »

The CW gave a vote of confidence to many of its series today with an early renewal announcement for two of its major genre series’ SUPERNATURAL and THE VAMPIRE DIARIES. THE VAMPIRE DIARIES getting a third season was a given, considering how powerful and popular that show is on Thursday nights, but it’s SUPERNATURAL getting its seventh season that’s the big announcement. While it’s proven to be a solid performer on Friday, the show’s future past last season when creator Eric Kripke stepped down as showrunner put it in jeopardy. However, with Kripke still peripherally involved, and the show still […]Read On »

On FRINGE, now in its third season and renewed for a fourth on Fox on Friday nights, there are two parallel universes. In ours, brilliant but mentally unstable Dr. Walter Bishop (John Noble) long ago found a way to travel between the two, with lingering terrifying results. His son Peter (Joshua Jackson), who is really from the other universe, and FBI Special Agent Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv) often enlist Walter in investigating strange phenomenon. In the other universe, another Walter Bishop (Noble again) runs the government and feels he needs to destroy our reality to protect his own, while another […]Read On »

At WonderCon 2011, ASSIGNMENT X had the chance to sit down with Senior Managing Editor for Dark Horse Comics, Scott Allie, to talk about the upcoming new series for BUFFY – SEASON 9 and the new title ANGEL AND FAITH. While we revealed much of the details about these comics during WonderCon (and in our previous stories from our interview with him which are listed below), Allie has much more to say on the topic including a possible WILLOW mini-series as well as information about a possible SERENITY comic coming down the pipe from Dark Horse. ASSIGNMENT X: What are […]Read On »


TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 6 – “My Heart Will Go On”

Cast: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Jim Beaver, Samantha Ferris Director: Philip Sgriccia Writer: Eric C. Charmelo Network: The CW, airs Fridays Original Telecast: April 15, 2011 One of the things that cracks me up about SUPERNATURAL is that it either panders to its hardcore audience (mostly females) or loves to rub their face in the stuff they love. This week in “My Heart Will Go On” it was the latter as the show took as many jabs at James Cameron’s TITANIC as possible including a nasty swipe at Celine Dion. You’d think after the blockbuster events of the […]Read On »


TV Review: FRINGE – Season 3 – “Lysergic Acid Diethlamide”

Cast: Anna Torv, Joshua Jackson, John Noble, Lance Reddick, Jasika Nicole Director: Joe Chappelle Writers: Jeff Pinkner, J.H. Wyman, Avika Goldman Network: Fox, airs Fridays Original Telecast: April 15, 2011 This was certainly an interesting episode of FRINGE. A tripping Peter (Joshua Jackson), a tripping Broyles (Lance Reddick), cartoons, the Twin Towers, a dead fat guy doing a dance in a tub of ice, zombies, animated birds flying and bubbles were just some of the highlights. Yeah, the comedy was fast and furious, but it did the job in progressing the whole William Bell trapped in Olivia’s (Anna Torv) body. […]Read On »


TV Review: BEING HUMAN – Season 1 – “You’re the One That I Haunt”

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Kristen Hager, Sarah Allen, Gianpaolo Venuta Writer: Nancy Won Director: Erik Canuel Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: April 4, 2011 There are plenty of dramatic events in the BEING HUMAN episode “You’re the One That I Haunt,” but they’ll probably play better for those who haven’t seen the original, because this hews very closely to the template in two of the plot threads, while being rather brief with the third. As the episode opens, ghost Sally (Meagan Rath) is much the worse for wear after a mostly-failed exorcism attempt […]Read On »

During the press event for DOCTOR WHO at WonderCon 2011 in San Francisco, ASSIGNMENT X had to ask frequent SUPERNATURAL guest-star Mark Sheppard about the possibility of his character of Crowley returning to The CW show in Season 7.  Here’s what he had to say. “You can’t get rid of Crowley,” Sheppard says. “If they go to Season 7 on SUPERNATURAL, I would guess that they would bring Crowley back because the fans have been barraging the show about it. Keep doing it! If you want me back on SUPERNATURAL you have to keep pestering them.” CLICK HERE for details […]Read On »

Stars: Sam Witwer, Meaghan Rath, Sam Huntington, Mark Pellegrino, Kristen Hager, Sarah Allen, Gianpaolo Venuta, Vincent Leclerc, Angela Galuppo, Terry Kinney Writer: Chris Dingess Director: Erik Canuel Network: Syfy, Mondays @ 9 PM Airdate: March 28, 2011 In BEING HUMAN’s episode “Going Dutch,” our three leads’ stories all take big jumps forward. For werewolf Josh (Sam Huntington), it’s panic time when girlfriend Nora (Kristen Hager) tells him she’s pregnant – not because he doesn’t want commitment, but because he’s afraid he’s passing along his wolf genes (which he still hasn’t told Nora about). Ghost Sally (Meaghan Rath) has an unpleasant […]Read On »
