Hi, I'm Kira. I was born in the Midwest in the '80s with a love of pop culture! I'm all grown up now, and I still live in the Midwest and still love pop culture. I'm just fortunate enough to be able to write about it here. In my blog, you'll find some humor, a lot of snark, and a love for all things celebrity, but don't worry, I'm not too serious here. I love mocking them too! Stay tuned! Twitter: @KiraJW

'Supernatural' Recap: When Charlie Met Dorothy

October 30th, 2013 9:15am EDT
Supernatural
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?  

Grab your ruby slippers and let's dive in, shall we?  

The episode was peppered with black and wh...

'Supernatural' Recap: The Miseducation Of Castiel

October 23rd, 2013 8:38am EDT
Supernatural
For an episode that delved into Castiel's newfound humanity, I expected a lot of zingers, confusion and the bizarre, cerebral humor that the former angel's portrayer  Misha Collins has perfected.  I was not prepared for "I'm No Angel" to cut out my heart out with one of those merciless angel blades and turn it into tartare.   

Ward yourself against those organizing angels and let's dive in, shall we?  

"Supernatural" kicks off with Dean grumbling through the bunker with searching for coffee and his little brother. Apparently, Sam, when he's not sans soul, trying to rid the world of demonk...

'Supernatural' Recap: The Dark Queen Rises

October 16th, 2013 9:13am EDT
Supernatural
Last week's episode of "Superantural" may have been the premiere, but this week's episode, "Devil May Care," was the true kickstarter of season 9.  With fallen angels and Abaddon rising out of the ashes like the fiercest of phoenixes to contend with on top of everything "demony and monstery," it's going to be a busy year indeed.  

Let's dive in, shall we?   

Since they didn't close the gates of hell, Sam and Dean have to rid the world of demons the hard way: one by one.  They haul Crowley into their handy dungeon (much to Kevin's dismay) and prepare to holy waterboard the names of every d...

'Supernatural' Season 9 Premiere Recap: Oh. My. Angel.

October 9th, 2013 10:30am EDT
Supernatural
"Supernatural's" season 8 finale left many angst-coated balls in the air: Castiel, having been tricked by Metatron, was rendered human; the angels were cast out of heaven; and Sam, choosing life, abandoned the trials only to very nearly perish anyway.  The season 9 premiere managed to keep all those balls compellingly in play while still ninja-kicking us in the heart.

Only a day has passed since what the media was calling the Global Meteor Shower had occurred.  No one is tweeting or Instagramming the celestial beings roaming the earth because most of them have found vessels.  In the hospit...

Ironside
To watch or not to watch?  To suffer through a lackluster new show and risk missing a spectacular one?  It's the fall television roulet that can drive lesser TV fanatic insane.  Luckily, I am here to offer preview of the not-for-review pilots I managed snag this summer.  Consider me your DVR Whisperer, guiding you on which shows should get your season pass and which you should just skip.  Here are my thoughts on NBC’s "Ironside" starring Blair Underwood.

Justin Timberlake's 'The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2' Review: Album Of The Year?

September 30th, 2013 8:46am EDT
The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2
Not many musicians would release a second album just six months after a massively successful one and a sold-out stadium tour with the reigning King of Hip Hop, Jay Z.  But most musicians aren't Justin Timberlake.  "The 20/20 Experience: 2 of 2" unfathomably tops its predecessor with an operatic exploration of soul, country, funk, R&B swaddled in JT's legendary charisma.  

If “The 20/20 Experience” was about the simple act of falling in love, 2 of 2 encapsulates the complicated work of sustaining it.  The initial seduction is explored in the "Thriller"-esque "True Blood" and the ode to bedr...
