'Supernatural' Season 9 Finale Recap: The Wrong Kind Of Miracle

May 21st, 2014 10:15am EDT
Supernatural
Last week, Castiel asked Dean, "Do you really believe three will be enough?" to beat the villain of the moment. Dean answered, "It always has been," with a certainty that felt simultaneously hopeful and damning. Tuesday's "Supernatural" finale posed, "Do You Believe In Miracles?" and answered itself with a complicated, soul-flaying affirmative.

Grab your tissues and your therapist’s number, and let's dive in shall we?

When we last left the Bunker, Dean was foaming at the mouth like a rabid dog after slashing Gadreel with the first blade. Castiel restrains Dean, and Sam uses his littl...

'Supernatural: Bloodlines' Review: Spin-Off Is A Monstrous Mess

April 30th, 2014 9:54am EDT
Supernatural: Bloodlines
In what has to be the most belated opportunity in television history, the CW's sci-fi show "Supernatural" finally got its spin-off with "Supernatural: Bloodlines." It debuted as a backdoor pilot that's positively stuffed to the monstrous gills with new characters, tragedies, daddy issues and few moments of "Supernatural's" whiskey-soaked charm.

Backdoor pilots seem like a good idea on paper: target 100% of the original show's audience by having the characters stumble into a related but dynamic universe that leave the viewers wanting more. However, most are rushed, unbalanced and choppy...

In the fickle word of entertainment, it's rare when a television show makes it through its first season. For the lucky shows that do, they risk jumping the shark, Hollywood's term for a show's cringe-worthy decline due to over-the-top or nonsensical plotlines. Has your favorite long-running series like "Supernatural" or "The Good Wife" made the leap? Read on to find out...

It's a little baffling that the CW's sci-fi show is bringing in some of its best ratings yet in its ninth season. It's mind-boggling to realize that after nearly 200 episodes, "Supernatural" is s...

'Supernatural' Recap: Know Thy Selfie

March 5th, 2014 11:12am EST
Supernatural
Sam and Dean have encountered many dastardly demons and douchebags during their hunting escapades, but none have been more irksome than The Ghostfacers. In last night's episode of "Supernatural” called “Thinman,” the duo resurfaced after six years with their usual shenanigans and a surprising amount of angst.

Before we dive in, I must confess that I have held a grudge against the Ghostfacers for years. I enjoyed their episode way back in season 1’s “Hell House” however when they returned in season 3, it was the first episode back after the writers' strike forced all shows to go dark m...

With the Winter Olympics bobsledding into that great competition in the sky for another four years, it's time for "Supernatural" to continue its angst-filled scare-a-thon. The appropriately titled "Captives" found Castiel assuming a very different, yet familiar position and our favorite prophet returned to yank on everyone's heartstrings like Quazimodo does cathedral bells.

After nearly 200 episodes, the "Supernatural" masterminds are adept at tempering emotional angst with slapstick humor. "The Purge" tried to walk that artistic tightrope, balancing the emotional angst between Sam and Dean with the humor surrounding the weekly case. Due to the workout Yogi Sammy gave our feels, fans are bound to be sore well into the Olympic hiatus.

The brothers unite to solve the case of Garth's sudden re-emergence as a hit-and-run victim in Grantsburg, Wisconsin, where there has been a rash of mutilated animals.

If last week’s episode of “Supernatural” ripped your heart out, this week’s installment fused it back together with badassery, a bit of heart and a few artful liberties with the world’s oldest sibling rivalry.

While Sam tries to avenge Kevin with the “harmless” dregs of grace the sloppy “psycho angel” Gadreel left inside him, Dean opts for good, old-fashioned revenge.  Of course, Crowley arrives to harsh his buzz and possibly rescue his loins.  "This bar is a bust.  That waitress is trouble with a capital VD, and your prey, Gadreel, has left the building.  It’s ...

Congrats, you survived the holidays, the Polar Vortex, the television hiatuses, and the seventeen "I don't have anything prepared!!" speeches at "The Golden Globes."  Your reward is this week's stunning episode of "Supernatural."  "Road Trip" was the intensely poetic and extremely timely conclusion to the first half of the season in which Sam finally learns he's been touched by an angel; Dean deals with the consequences of his impulsive and desperate decision to save his brother; and Kevin Tran is still dead.  

Admittedly, I wasn't happy with the reveal that Sam was once again possessed by...

“Supernatural” won’t air new episodes until 2014, so the winter finale demanded it go out with a bang.  "Holy Terror" did nothing but drop bomb after devastating bomb.  

When we heard the state of Sam's health last week, he was nothing but "duct tape and safety pins inside."  This week, Ezekiel is claiming that Sam is "much-improved" but Zeke still says that Sam needs more time.  Honestly, I'm not sure I'd want to leave Casa Sammy either.  He's got the dimples and tiny waist and he definitely doesn't have to ask strangers to get things off the top shelf at the grocery store.  However, last...

There was a period of Dean Winchester's life that's never talked about.  It's a long kept secret between Dean and John because unspeakable things happened during those lost two months when a 12-year-old Sammy was at Bobby's and John was on the road.  "Nobody bad-touched me.  Nobody burned me with their smokes or beat me with a metal hanger," Dean promises.  It was much worse: Dean Winchester lived regular.  He went to school, did his chores, joined the wrestling team and flirted with the local girl at the diner.  This week's very special episode of "Supernatural" explores this time while ja...

It was bound to happen sometime.  After a streak of mostly stellar or at least good episodes that began in the middle of season 8, "Supernatural" finally delivered an installment that was more filler than phenomenal.

It's hard to believe that "Slumber Party" is only the fourth episode of "Supernatural" of the season.  I'm already emotional wrung out from Castiel's exile, Sam’s near-death, and Dean’s secret, so it's refreshing that this week's installment welcomes back honorary Winchester Charlie Bradbury (Felicia Day) and went back to its roots of exploring classic monster tales.  And what's more scary than a portal to another dimension that's home to a wicked witch, flying monkey and a man made of tin?
