When I get my own TV show, I’m writing a Halloween episode every year, not only because I live and breathe Halloween but because, surprisingly, not a lot of shows do a Halloween episode. Then sometimes when shows do have Halloween episodes, the spooky holiday ends up being only a background element in the story. Continue reading

Fears I’ve developed since watching ‘Supernatural’

After almost 10 complete seasons of Supernatural, I was bound to get a little messed up. Between the ghosts, demons, gods and monsters, there was absolutely no way I was going to escape the show unscathed. And sure enough, I’ve found that over the years my psyche has developed a few new fears that I can only contribute to the tiny little show about monster-hunting brothers. Continue reading

Things looked grim for The CW’s Supernatural spinoff idea last season after the pilot for Supernatural: Bloodlines premiered to a lackluster audience followed by a slew of disappointment. Network executives couldn’t even get behind the idea of a supernatural turf war, and the pilot was ultimately discarded from the fall lineup. Continue reading

A few months ago, I wrote a post concerning the news that the CW’s Supernatural was getting a spin-off. And I was leery of the idea from the get go, afraid that a series set in the world created by Eric Kripke that didn’t feature either of the Winchester brothers would never hold its own. These two heroes are, after all, the heart, soul and sexy of the Supernatural-verse. Continue reading

Everything I ever needed to know, I learned from…’Supernatural’

I know what you’re thinking. What could Supernatural, a show about two demon-hunting, ghost-chasing, hot-as-Hell (trust me, they would know) brothers with a cool car and a bat cave teach a person about life? Surprisingly, quite a bit more than you’d imagine. Aside from the important stuff, like always keeping salt on hand and memorizing a Latin exorcism (just in case of an emergency), Supernatural has a lot to offer when it comes to figuring out who you are, where you’re headed and just who you want sitting in the passenger seat.

Calling all ‘Supernatural’ fans: We’re ready to talk about Kevin.

Brothers and sisters from my Supernatural family, we’ve had a very rough couple of days. The mid-season finale, “Holy Terror,” has left us bruised, battered and broken, what with the rise of Gadreel and Metatron, the semi-return of Angel!Castiel and Dean’s trademark OPT (one perfect tear, for those who don’t know) sliding down his scruffy cheek in the last moments of the episode.

But nothing, nothing has left us more destroyed than the loss of Kevin Tran, Advanced Placement. Continue reading

Scary is sexier than ever!

Despite being in its ninth season, the CW hit Supernatural is seeing its biggest ratings in years, leaving the show’s adoring and ever faithful fans both happy and hopeful for their little series that could. But it also begs the question, why the sudden surge of viewers? Continue reading

With the Season 9 premiere of Supernatural right around the corner, many fans are scrambling to refresh their memories when it comes to just what went down with the Winchester brothers and their trusty angel sidekick last season. Okay, so maybe most fans aren’t too concerned about a refresher (because let’s be honest, most of us have watched, rewatched, gif-ed and screen-capped the hell out of last season) but for those of us who might not have that same level of dedication (obsession), there’s a quick fix!

It’s possible to catch up on all of the Season 8 shenanigans in just five episodes. Unbelievable, right? Believe it! Continue reading

Any show that runs for as long as Supernatural has will have a glut of fantastic episodes to recommend. For this reason, favorites lists have always been hard for me and my favorite episodes can change based on my mood or the day of the week. My top five episodes of Supernatural were particularly hard to pick. In the end, I had to go back to my tried-and-true method of picking favorites: Which episodes have I watched the most? If I can watch an episode multiple times over the course of several years, there must be something there that I’m responding to. Join me below as I pick apart my top five episodes of Supernatural and the reasons why you should enjoy them too. Continue reading

The beauty of kindness: A look at Misha Collins’ Random Acts

There’s something inherently beautiful about a random act of kindness, and Supernatural actor Misha Collins has taken that beauty a step further by co-founding the non-profit organization Random Acts.

Now the actual founding of Random Acts is kind of old news. Collins began the whole process with a simple tweet to his minions (A.K.A. Twitter followers) in late 2009, asking for ideas to reach the intended goal of obtaining U.S. government stimulus money to fund non-profit projects. Cue funding changes, idea swaps and a bit of help from co-founder Lisa Walker, and Random Acts was well on its way to changing the world. Continue reading

The CW has been all about spinoffs lately. The Originals, a side-tale in The Vampire Diariesuniverse set in New Orleans, will begin airing this Fall and fresh off of its success, the network has begun planning its next big move — Supernatural spin-off. But will a series set away from two brothers and an old Impala really hold its own? Continue reading
