Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark Pellegrino, Osric Chau, David Haydn-Jones, Jeffrey Vincent Parise, Christian Keyes, Farrah Aviva, Erica Cerra Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Leming-Ross, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Richard Speight, Jr. Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: November 23, 2017 The SUPERNATURAL Season 13 episode “War of the Worlds” is not one to show to newbies, as it requires a lot of knowledge of what the hell (pun intended) is going on. In our world, powerful half-angel/half-human Jack (Alexander Calvert), worried that he might hurt his friends, has vanished to parts […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Alexander Calvert, Sarah Troyer, Jonathan Cherry, Eric Schweig Writer: Davy Perez, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Nina Lopez-Corrado Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: November 16, 2017 The title of the SUPERNATURAL Season 13’s sixth episode “Tombstone” does refer to the traditional graveyard marker, but it also recalls not just the legendary Old West town, but the movie made about it (with Kurt Russell as Wyatt Earp and Val Kilmer as Doc Holliday). No, nobody time-travels there, or even visits a modern incarnation. Instead, it’s a weird reflection of […]Read On »

The CW’s SUPERGIRL, in its third season on Monday nights and renewed for a fourth, is part of the network’s DC-verse, a slate that also includes ARROW, THE FLASH, LEGENDS OF TOMORROW, and BLACK LIGHTNING. The headline extraterrestrials in SUPERGIRL are obviously Kryptonians – Supergirl, aka Kara Danvers (Melissa Benoist), Kara’s slightly less-famous cousin Mon-El (Chris Wood) and Kara’s slightly more famous cousin, recurring guest character Kal-El, aka Superman (Tyler Hoechlin), to say nothing of their sometimes adversarial relatives. However, SUPERGIRL also has Martians. First, there was the Department of Extraterrestrial Affairs director Hank Henshaw (David Harewood), who turned out […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 13 – “Advanced Thanatology”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Lisa Berry, Seth Isaac Johnson, Alisen Down Writer: Steve Yockey, series created by Eric Kripke Director: John F. Showalter Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: November 9, 2017 A big part of the charm of SUPERNATURAL is the craziness of its storytelling, which has just gotten loopier over the years. By Season 13, it revels in its own insanity. There may never have been a show where the ostensibly mortal lead characters keep dying and coming back, with the explanations for how and why this happens growing ever more complex. […]Read On »

BLACK LIGHTNING: Actor Damon Gupton talks the new CW superhero series – exclusive interview

The poster for BLACK LIGHTING | © 2018 The CW

BLACK LIGHTNING is The CW’s latest series based on a D.C. Comics property. The new Tuesday-night drama shares an executive producer, Greg Berlanti, with the other D.C. adaptations, but BLACK LIGHTNING, developed for television by Berlanti’s fellow executive producers Salim Akil and Mara Brock Akil, has two notable differences. All but one of the protagonists are African-American and most of the main characters are adults in early middle age. Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams) is a beloved high school principal in the city of Freeland. Nine years ago, Jefferson left behind his electricity-shooting superhero alter ego Black Lightning in an effort […]Read On »

In the case of Season 13 Episode 4’s “The Big Empty,” it’s where angels and demons go when they die. Castiel (Misha Collins) is wandering around this, well, big empty space, trying to find somebody, and eventually wakes up the Entity running the joint. The Entity […]Read On »

At the same time, we meet the fourth Prince of Hell Asmodeus (Jeffrey Vincent Parise) and see the further adventures of Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino) and Mary Winchester (Samantha Smith) in the […]Read On »

With Jack (Alexander Calvert), the newly-born and already adolescent son of Lucifer, trying to figure out life and Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) arguing over what to do about him, “Lost and Found” might have been a contemplative […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 12 – “All Along the Watchtower” – Season Finale

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark Pellegrino, Samantha Smith, Courtney Ford, Alexander Calvert, Jim Beaver Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Robert Singer Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: May 18, 2017 Okay, so this is curious. It has become traditional for SUPERNATURAL to start each season finale with a relevant montage set to Kansas’ “Carry On, Wayward Son.” In the Season 12 season finale, “All Along the Watchtower,” we get the Kansas song and the montage, but it is largely concerned with the seemingly concluded British Men of Letters plotline.
