Sam Carter gets angelic.
Category Archives: Supernatural TV Series
Then again, when are angels on the show “Supernatural” not total and complete bitches? Even goofy Castiel, before he got all goofy on us, was kinda a dick. I guess when you’re God’s kids and you have groovy powers, you can get a tad personality-free. But hey, at least one of those new angels that will be terrorizing/helping/somewhere-in-between the Winchesters in “Supernatural” Season 8 will look good when Amanda Tapping shows up. The former “Stargate” and “Sanctuary” star has lined up a recurring role in the CW show’s upcoming season, and will play an angel name Naomi, described as “cool and mysterious, part of a new group of angels we’ve never seen before.” Tapping will make her “Supernatural” debut on the 7th episode of Season 8, titled, “A Little Slice of Kevin”, but she’ll continue to be in the thick of things for the rest of the season, alongside the Winchester Brothers and, of course, fallen angel Castiel (Misha Collins)….

I love me some “Supernatural”. I know, it’s not strictly sci-fi, but whatever, it’s sci-fi-ish enough for me. And this week’s episode features a guest spot by geek Goddess herself, Felicia Day, playing a lesbian hacker. The title of the episode is also pretty cute — “The Girl with the Dungeons and Dragons Tattoo”. Official episode synopsis: Dick Roman (James Patrick Stuart) acquires Frank’s hard drive that contains sensitive information about the Winchesters and gives it to an unsuspecting brilliant hacker named Charlie (guest star Day) telling her she has 48 hours to crack the firewall or she is fired. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) are tipped off that Dick has the hard drive and race to get to Charlie before she breaks the code. Meanwhile, Bobby (Jim Beaver) tries to help the brothers, but his rage towards Dick for killing him starts to get in the way. Check out Day’s episode this Friday on the CW.
Rejoice, “Supernatural” fans: the CW has renewed “Supernatural” for a seventh season, even as Season 6 (sans creator Eric Kripke) winds down. Last we saw Dean and Sam, they were stuck in the Wild West while Castiel dealt with an angel civil war in Heaven. Or something like that. Fact is, we’ve heard a lot about that war, but haven’t seen much in terms of Sam and Dean. When are the brothers gonna get in on the action? Soon, I hope. Until then, check out a couple of clips from this week’s new “Supernatural” episode titled “Mommy Dearest”, which finds the Winchester boys facing off against “Mother” in, of course, a diner. This is “Supernatural”, after all, it’s never what you think it’s going to be. Sam, Dean, Bobby and Castiel track Eve to a small town in Oregon. The guys discover the townspeople have been converted to demons, but surprisingly, they all appear to be dying. When they finally… Continue Reading »
If “Supernatural” didn’t jump the shark two episodes ago when stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles were playing, well, themselves, then it’s never gonna. At this point, I don’t see the show as a “must-see” anymore, though it’s still somewhat entertaining. Then again, I’m a sucker for shows with this kind of premise, so that’s not a surprise. What is a surprise is this news that “Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke (who played himself in the aforementioned jump-the-shark episode) has returned to pen the show’s Season 6 finale, and according to Kripke and current showrunner Sera Gamble, Season 7 of “Supernatural” is looking very likely. Kripke tells E! Online: We’re looking pretty good [in terms of coming back for Season 7]. We’re bullish enough on it that we cliffhang the finale. Gamble adds: I feel an obligation to answer a fair amount of questions, but also to cliffhang some stuff for next season. We have some stuff cliffhanging at the end… Continue Reading »
Check out two preview clips from Friday’s first “Supernatural” episode of Season 6, “Exile on Main Street”. It’s a year later and Dean (Jensen Ackles) has given up hunting and is living with Lisa (guest star Cindy Sampson) and her son Ben (guest star Nicholas Elia). Mysteriously freed from his cage in hell, Sam (Jared Padalecki) finds Dean and tells him he needs to rejoin the fight and introduces Dean to a world—a family—he never even knew existed: the Campbells, his mother’s family, lead by none other than their Grandfather Samuel (Mitch Pileggi). “Exile on Main Street” airs tonight on the CW.
You already saw the pics, now here is the official plot description for the first episode of “Supernatural” Season 6 from the CW: It’s a year later and Dean (Jensen Ackles) has given up hunting and is living with Lisa (guest star Cindy Sampson) and her son Ben (guest star Nicholas Elia). Mysteriously freed from his cage in hell, Sam (Jared Padalecki) finds Dean and tells him he needs to rejoin the fight and introduces Dean to a world—a family—he never even knew existed: the Campbells, his mother’s family, lead by none other than their Grandfather Samuel (Mitch Pileggi). Ooooh, a new family for Dean! Well, two new families, I guess. “Supernatural” Season 6 kicks off September 24, 2010 on the CW.
The CW’s “Supernatural” Season 6, the show’s first without show creator/runner Eric Kripke at the helm, returns to airwaves September 24, 2010. Until then, here are three new TV promos for the coming season, which picks up where the end of Season 5 left off, with Dean living the good life with a happy family. That is, until little bro Sam returns. Complications, as they say, ensue.
This “Supernatural” Season 6 promo was released about a month ago, but I didn’t get around to it, so here it is. It’s essentially a recap of the events leading up Season 5′s final confrontation with Lucifer, followed by a quick look at Dean “at home” afterwards. Nothing you haven’t seen before, and no new footage from the coming season as far as I can tell, but it certainly gets you jazzed up for Season 6. And in case you missed it, promo images from the “Supernatur” season 6 premiere (“Exile on Main Street”) due on the air September 24, 2010 on the CW, can be found here.
Yup, it’s almost that time again, when the Winchester brothers return to fight the creatures of the darkness and other bad things. I have no idea how this season is going to look or feel without show creator Eric Kripke at the helm, but I’m not sure if I can really complain about the best show on TV getting another full season. The CW has released the first promo images from the upcoming “Supernatural” Season 6 premiere episode, “Exile on Main Street”. From the promos below, it looks like Mitch Pileggi is back on the scene. No official synopsis yet, though. “Supernatural” Season 6 premieres on the CW September 24, 2010.
If you’re one of those people wondering how it is that “Smallville” can keep going and going and going and never seem to get anywhere, apparently the CW kinda feels the same way: the network has made it prett much official that “Smallville’s” upcoming 10th season (yes, this show has been on for ten years, go figure) will also be its last. Fans of “Smallville” needn’t be so glum. Ten years is a hell of a run for any show, much less genre shows, which never really seem to get a lot of respect from the networks. “Smallville” will remain in its Friday night time slot, where it has thrived despite Friday generally being known as the Graveyard Shift to many TV viewers. Come this fall, “Smallville” will also find itself with a new dance partner in “Supernatural”, which the CW will be moving to Fridays for its sixth (and possibly final) season. The network will slot their new action-adventure… Continue Reading »
And so it comes down to tonight’s “Swan Song”, the final episode of “Supernatural” Season 5. “Swan Song” marks the final episode where show creator Eric Kripke will be in charge, having decided to leave to pursue other endeavors now that the 5-year story arc he had planned to tell has been concluded with tonight’s season finale. So where does that leave “Supernatural”? There are new showrunners, and a sixth season will be forthcoming from the CW. I don’t really know how to feel about that — a part of me is happy that the show won’t die after tonight, but another part of me just realizes how perfect “Swan Song” is, and how perfectly this would have made for a series finale. The cold hard fact is, TV is a business, and “Supernatural” still has fans and its ratings are still strong enough for the CW to keep it around. After all, look at “Smallville”. That show is in… Continue Reading »
“Supernatural” season finales. Are there anything better? I dare say, NO. With the last episode of “Supernatural” Season 5 coming up later this week, it means Sam and Dean Winchester will finally confront the Lucifer for the whole ball of wax. And if they should fail, well, you can kiss your asses goodbye, then. Show creator Eric Kripke has always intended for this season to be the final season, but with the CW having renewed the show for a sixth year, it looks like there will be more “Supernatural” on the horizon. With the apocalyptic storyline wrapping up here, I’m guessing the sixth year will be more filler material stuff. I’m of two minds about a sixth season: on the one hand, I’d love more “Supernatural”, but on the other hand, if this is how it’s meant to end, why keep it going? Check out some sneak peek clips from “Swan Song”. And the finale promo featuring “O’Death” by Jennifer… Continue Reading »
Who knew a show as good as “Supernatural” would manage to last for 100 episodes? Talk about bucking the trend! Usually on network TV the good ones die young and the shitty ones keep on living and living and living… Well next week’s “Supernatural” episode is indeed its 100th, and they’re bringing out the real heavy stuff. Not loud explosions or fights, those are just background noise on a show like “Supernatural”, but the really loud emotional stuff that has been building since the beginning of the current season. The CW has put out three sneak peek clips (about six minutes of total “Supernatural” asskicking goodness) for next week’s new episode, “Point of No Return”. If you saw last night’s “99 Problems”, then you know Dean Winchester is about to do something he’s been resisting all year, and no one is happy about it, least of all renegade angel Castiel, it would appear. Tune in next week to see if… Continue Reading »
The CW’s “Supernatural” is pretty much the only decent thing on that young-people-having-sex-obsessed network that I bother to DVR. The show is currently in its fifth season and in the middle of its demon apocalypse storyline, with Satan and the Angels fighting for the survival of the planet and the boys Winchester stuck dab smack in the middle. The show’s creator and mastermind, Eric Kripke has always said that he’s planned the show as a 5-year story, with that arc wrapping up at the end of this season. Now comes word that the CW has renewed the show past the demon apocalypse storyline, which means changes are afoot. The biggest news is that, along with the Season 6 renewal, showrunner Eric Kripke will be stepping down from his post, and handing the job over to long-time “Supernatural” writer/producer Sera Gamble. Word is, that while Kripke will no longer be the day-to-day genius behind what goes down in the world of… Continue Reading »
