OUTSIDERS: Interview with actors Kyle Gallner, Christina Jackson and Francie Swift

The cast of OUTSIDERS Season 2 | © 2017 WGN

In WGN America’s OUTSIDERS, now in its second season on Tuesday nights, the title term has various meanings. The Farrell clan, who have lived in isolation on a Kentucky mountaintop, view everyone else as outsiders. The people in the small town below view the mountainfolk as outsiders. And both groups view representatives of the mining company that wants to raze the mountain as the ultimate outsiders. Actors Kyle Gallner, Christina Jackson and Francie Swift between them play characters who are representatives of all three groups. Gallner’s Hasil (pronounced “Hassle”) is a young mountain man whose curious nature brings him down […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Rob Benedict, Curtis Armstrong, Emily Swallow, Osric Chau, Keith Szarabajka Writers: Eugenie Leming-Ross & Brad Buckner, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: May 11, 2016 Alas, Metatron (Curtis Armstrong). Yes, you were a Grade A jerk (editorial policy forbids a stronger term) for multiple seasons, but you were always entertaining. This season, you’ve been comedy gold, and went out a hero for nothing less than the cause of God and humanity (and probably the Earth’s crust and plankton and other things, […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Rick Springfield, Ruth Connell, Samantha Smith, Elizabeth Blackmore, Bronagh Waugh, Woody Jeffreys, Adam Fergus Writers: Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Thursdays @ 8 PM Original Airdate: October 20, 2016 One of the pleasures of the SUPERNATURAL Season 12 episode “Mamma Mia” is seeing that Samantha Smith, as Mary Winchester, mother of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), fits comfortably into the ensemble. The actress is likable, neither over the top nor stiff. Mary comes across as vulnerable […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Mark Pellegrino, Ruth Connell, Emily Swallow, Colin Ford, Lisa Berry Valerie Tian Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: January 20, 2016 Historically, Lucifer has a reputation as a tempter, which he upholds mightily in the SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “The Devil in the Details.” The Devil, in this instance, as played by Mark Pellegrino, would actually like to be in Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) in order to use him as a vessel. Hey, it almost […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 11 – “Baby”

Jared Padalecki as Sam and Jensen Ackles as Dean in SUPERNATURAL | © 2015 Diyah Pera /The CW

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Teach Grant, Sarah-Jane Redmond, Adam Cohen Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 21, 2015 The supposed gimmick in the SUPERNATURAL Season 11 episode “Baby” is that it’s from the point of view of Dean’s (Jensen Ackles) beloved Chevy Impala. This is a decent idea as far as it goes – we’re in Season 11 of a gonzo show, no reason the car can’t have a viewpoint. Trouble is, no one seems to want to go on record, […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 10 – “The Prisoner”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Ruth Connell, Markus Flanagan, David Hoflin, Connor Pree, Matt Bellefleur Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Wednesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: May 13, 2015 Most shows (barring those starring evil vampires) don’t let their lead characters go where Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) winds up in “The Prisoner.” Actually, this is arguably the darkest SUPERNATURAL has gone with either Winchester – yes, Castiel (Misha Collins) has gone darker, but he was a deity at the time, and Crowley (Mark A. Sheppard) […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 10 – “Reichenbach”

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Curtis Armstrong, Erica Carroll, Travis Aaron Wade, David Nykl Writer: Andrew Dabb, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: October 14, 2014 Well, gosh, SUPERNATURAL does FARGO. Not for the entirety of the “Reichenbach” episode, but the tip of the hat to FX’s miniseries is sizable, down to naming a supporting character with a thick Midwest accent Lester. Even the title “Reichenbach” is a kind of homage, since the action in FARGO never goes to Fargo and the action […]Read On »

TV Review: SUPERNATURAL – Season 9 – “Do You Believe in Miracles?” – Season Finale

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Mark A. Sheppard, Curtis Armstrong, Tahmoh Penikett, Erica Carroll, Shayn Solberg Writer: Jeremy Carver, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: May 20, 2014 SUPERNATURAL arguably hasn’t had a season finale quite as startling as Season 9’s “Do You Believe in Miracles?” since Castiel temporarily became a god and perhaps not since Sam (Jared Padalecki) got locked in Hell. Now, we should have seen this coming, but in all the chaos with trying to get Heaven out of the grasp of Metatron […]Read On »

Stars: Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles, Misha Collins, Curtis Armstrong, Tahmoh Penikett, Richard Speight Jr. Writer: Robbie Thompson, series created by Eric Kripke Director: Thomas J. Wright Network: The CW, Tuesdays @ 9 PM Original Airdate: April 15, 2014 We know right away that the “Meta Fiction” episode of SUPERNATURAL is no ordinary hour of television; not that most episodes of SUPERNATURAL could be described as “ordinary,” but even by this show’s standards, we are cruising into the Straits of Gonzo. The treacherous but genial angel Metatron (Curtis Armstrong), erstwhile scribe of Heaven, clad in a fancy smoking jacket, looks up […]Read On »
