It’s been four months since the “Supernatural” season 8 finale, and fans have yet to recover from the assault of awesome and epic the game-changing episode unleashed that left Sam on the brink of death, Castiel rendered a mortal, and angels exiled from heaven.  Season 9 doesn’t begin until Oct. 8 on The CW, but an exclusive sneak peek hit the web this week, and it looks as if it will continue on the path of riveting angst, action and Abaddon.

2013 Fall TV Preview: The Returning Shows On The CW & CBS

September 4th, 2013 6:00pm EDT
Arrow
The CW and CBS are complete opposites. The CW shouldn't be in business, and CBS is THE business. The CW aims for teenagers to lose their sh!t on social media. CBS aims for the median age of the people in my office. I've never understood the Blue Bloods audience more than in the last year. My interest in The CW is odd and possibly unhealthy. I'm endlessly fascinated with its shows and attractive actors. I'll watch Reign just for Adelaide Kane. I'm not endlessly fascinated by CBS. CBS lulls me to sleep. I never wrote about Elementary's "Pilot" because I went to sleep mid-episode. I never watc...

June 11th, 2013 10:30am EDT
Jim Beaver on 'Justified'
There’s not many offers to interview celebrities that come in my inbox that get me as excited as the one I received a few weeks ago. You might not even know his name, but odds are, you know some of his roles.

Jim Beaver is an actor I’ve followed for years, mostly because he’s had memorable roles in some of my favorite shows in the world ranging from Breaking Bad to Supernatural to Justified.

We covered all of his big roles in a recent interview. If you’re not caught up on all of those shows, you may want to steer clear of spoilers.

If I had to describe one word to showrunner's Jeremy Carver's season of The CW's "Supernatural," it would be ambitious.  If I had to do the same with the season finale, it would be spectacular.  From writing to acting to dazzling special effects, "Sacrifice” was as grand and cinematic as the blockbusters that will fill the cineplex this summer.

It doesn't take a Stanford-educated genius like Sam to figure out that I’m not an unbiased "Supernatural" blogger.  I happily devour everything I can find about it, and put my own musings out into the void.  In spite of all that, I still wasn't prepared for the whack-a-doo brilliance of "The Great Escapist," thanks to write Ben Edlund (who deserves an Emmy-nod for penning this stellar episode).  Position yourself near your fainting couch—because the all of the feels make you swoon like Scarlett O’Hara—and let's dive in, shall we?

This season of "Supernatural" has been dubbed "Season Gr8" by fans, and it's not hard to figure out why.  The show rebounded from its rocky beginnings to truly live up to its moniker.  "Taxi Driver" is yet another example of this season’s ambitious strides in visual effects and sweeping, heartrending plots.

Last week's stunner of an episode set the bar to meteoric heights, and this week, it was time to brace for the inevitable fall.  Despite the intriguing premise of a Professor Xavier-esque school for gifted and orphaned hunters, “Freaks and Geeks” was a convoluted clunker that left the cast to do most of the heavy-lifting.

If you haven't figured it out yet, "Supernatural" is not a sci-fi fairy tale where the hero rides in on his trusted steed, kills the monster and saves the princess.  No, in this realm, the princess is immolated on the ceiling and our heroes are doomed to be tortured in hell, purgatory or both.  They do have a pretty badass steed, though.  This week, "Supernatural" returned from its hiatus with an angst-ridden, gut-wrenching stunner of an episode that bid farewell to a fan favorite, severely tested one of the show’s most celebrated ships, and made us all remember why it hurts so good.

Last week’s excellent installment of “Supernatural” not only set the bar to skyscraper levels for the rest of the season, but also prompted a myriad of questions and musings that haunted me all week:  What if Kevin got the translation wrong since the he only has half of the tablet?  With one trial down, how hard would the remaining tests be?  What exactly was that glowing light that traveled up Sam’s arm at the end of last week’s episode?  Was it a good thing?

You can keep the overpriced roses and forego the horrendous Nicholas Sparks’ movie, because there’s not much more I’d want to do than spend time with Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles’ Sam and Dean Winchester on Valentine’s Day. 

“Trial And Error” was the triumphant return to what “Supernatural” ultimately is: an addicting rollercoaster ride that starts campy, peaks at heart-wrenching and finishes with a little mystery and a lot of feels.   It’s a ride I’ve been on for nearly seven years, and it never gets old.  The CW has wisely renewed the show for a remarkable ninth season, so I’m all b...

Sci-fi is the new black! The CW has renewed its strongest series in the fangtastic “The Vampire Diaries,” the superhero saga “Arrow,” and the downright demonic “Supernatural,” TVLine.com reports.

Diaries’ renewal for a fifth season was the safest best as it is the network's most-watched show, and a spin-off called “The Originals” slated to air in April.

“Arrow,” the action-packed freshman drama based on DC Comics' Green Arrow, was an instant hit, thanks to the talents of star Stephen Amell and those gratuitous work-out sequences.

This week’s episode, aptly titled “Everybody Hates Hilter,” tackles the bleak fodder that is World War II.  Of course, this being “Supernatural” and an episode penned by the deliciously weird Ben Edlund, it managed to pack some belly laughs and golden moments to lighten up fare stemming from one of the darkest moments in history. 

After I initially watched the episode, I honestly was clueless as to what it was about or even what had happened.  This was a windy, exposition-heavy episode that spanned decades, families and unearthed yet another near-extinct secret society.  I watched it again...

Ever since the stupendous and Emmy-worthy season 4 episode, “In The Beginning,” the “Supernatural” writers have winningly explored the theme of time-travel and shaken the Winchester family tree in episodes like “Time After Time,” "The Song Remains The Same" and this week's A-Bomb of an installment, “As Time Goes By.”

“Supernatural” had me at the first “son of a bitch!” After a shocker of a winter finale, that left Sam and Dean in opposite corners on opposite side of the country—Dean siding with troubled vampire Benny; and Sam accidentally reuniting with his old flame Amelia—it returns with the show’s strange and engrossing take on a romantic comedy.  “Torn and Frayed” had it all: angels, sacrifice, and heartrending break-ups. 

Let’s dive in shall we!

'Supernatural' Recap: The Third Wheel

November 29th, 2012 10:07am EST
Supernatural
One of the estimated 19 million things I admire about “Supernatural” is the delicate touches it puts in themed episode like "Hunteri Heroici"—a daffy ode to classic Saturday morning cartoons. To say that the writing and production departments go underappreciated is like saying that Dean Winchester merely likes beer. From Castiel overzealously stepping into his new profession as a hunter and "bad cop" to Dean climbing inside of a black hole, this week's episode of "Supernatural" was one ACME stick of dynamite away from cartoony bliss.

For anyone worried that Castiel would the third whee...

"A Little Slice of Kevin" also marked the return of a fan favorite. Let's break it down!

Ever since last week’s promo showed Sam clocking Dean—let’s face it, we’ve all wanted to do that at one time or another—I have been looking forward to the moment when I could fall into this episode of “Supernatural” with the maturity and resolve of a five-year-old waiting for Santa Claus. It would mean that not only would I get to spend an hour watching Sam and Dean Winchester saving people, hunting things and looking hot doing it, but also that we all survived one of the ugliest and grueling elections in this nation’s history, and at the very least, the inescapable political ads and roboc...

'Supernatural' Recap: Brothers Up In Arms

Last week, "Supernatural" took a big artistic risk with "Bitten," the found-footage episode that delved into the very short lives of three co-eds turned werewolves with the two leads rack up scant minutes of airtime. For this blogger, the risk was worth it. This week, "Supernatural" took another gamble by wading into the back-story Dean's ally in Purgatory—a vampire named Benny—and unfortunately, it went bust. It's a shame, especially since this episode aired on Halloween and didn't contain a single jump-out-of-your-skin scare that “Supernatural” has mastered.

One of my favorite episodes “ER” was one that actually focused on the drama of the patient, not the doctors. An oafish but loveable Jim Belushi played an oafish but loveable father and coincidentally, a young Jared Padalecki was his hockey player son. Then in its seventh season, the show turned its focus on the complicated, emotional inner workings of a Chicago hospital outward into an small and terrifying experience as passing through said hospital as the victims of a violent car accident. It was an intimate and imaginative glimpse at an life-altering experience—one that the show’s char...
