SUPERNATURAL embarks on its fifteenth and final season on The CW on Thursday, October 10. The series, created by Eric Kripke, started with the relatively modest premise of the Winchester brothers, Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), fighting monsters and ghosts throughout the U.S. (even though the show is actually shot in Vancouver). As the seasons unspooled, though, the mythology got progressively more dense, until the Winchesters were actually tangling with Lucifer (mostly Mark Pellegrino, though other actors have embodied the fallen angel as well) and even God (Rob Benedict). At the end of Season 12, in May 2017, […]Read On »

Perrineau can currently be seen in the Emmy-winning miniseries WHEN THEY SEE US.

Epix’s new Sunday-night series GODFATHER OF HARLEM chronicles the life and times of Ellsworth Raymond “Bumpy” Johnson, played by Forest Whitaker, during the 1960s.

PBS NATURE’s film “Octopus: Making Contact” airs on Wednesday, October 2. The documentary, from director Anna Fitch, examines a number of aspects of the octopus, including its singular evolution: unlike vertebrates, the sea creature has evolved with its esophagus in its brain. “Octopus: Making Contact” also visits Octopolis, in a bay off of Australia’s Sydney Harbor, where normally solitary octopuses live in a colony. (Octopi, it’s explained during a PBS Q&A session for the program, is a Latin affectation adopted by some scientists in the early twentieth century; it’s not necessarily the right word for more than one octopus.) Mostly, […]Read On »
