  • Supernatural Season 11 Hits and Misses: Part Two

     The list you’ve all been waiting for! The second half of the season eleven hits and misses. Let’s dive right in…

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "First Blood"

     

    "Place me behind prison walls - walls of stone ever so high, ever so thick, reaching ever so far into the ground. There is a possibility that in some way or another I may be able to escape. But stand me on that floor and draw a chalk line around me and have me give my word of honor never to cross it. Can I get out of that circle? No. Never." — Karl G. Maeser

    How the Winchesters got into this situation was controversial but it was a juicy idea. I loved 2.19 "Folsom Prison Blues"and thought if "First Blood" was as well executed, we would have a grand old time. As it turned out, it was good but it could have been better. It would have been great if it would have lasted like two episodes.

    My chosen word for this fan vid article is, of course, "prison" so I checked up on a few episodes where our boys have been in prison or jail. Also, I might have chosen the weirdest song about prisons as a fan video but it works.

  • It's a Supernatural Life - Part 4

     

    Are you ready for part three of the Christmas story? If you missed the opening chapters of this year's Christmas in the bunker with the Winchesters, you'll want to go back to read Part 1Part 2 and Part 3 before continuing. After this we have still one part to go.

     The original idea for this story was to make it ready before Christmas day but unfortunately that didn't come to pass. Sometimes I plan too many things to do and I realize that there is only so much you can do in a day. I didn't have a holiday (vacation time) to finish it but so much was already done. I decided just to relax, keep the idea for the story in mind and slowly let it reveal itself. That was good as I could fully focus on it and write all that was needed. So finally we have arrived at the part that is my favorite.

  • Retrospective Thoughts on Supernatural 11.16 – "Safe House"

    Safe House was a great welcome back after a long hiatus when it first aired. It offered old friends, a fresh case, interestingly transitioned flashbacks and simple but unique Monster of the Week all for a good story and a perfect, timeless spotlight on the connection between Bobby Singer and his boys.
  • Memorable Moments: Supernatural 2.15 - "Tall Tales"

    Welcome again to Memorable Moments of Supernatural Past! I chose this episode as this one of my favourites. The humour was endless and it introduced us to The Trickster, who I just loved and miss dearly.

  • Supernatural: The Animation, Closer Look PART 4

    Episodes 13-18


    We are on our way to season 12, so to pass the time during this Hellatus join me for a look at the "other" Supernatural - the Supernatural: Animation series! If you would like to catch up with the earlier articles, you can check them out here: PART 1, PART 2 and Part 3.

    For each animated episode, I will give a short introduction then give a few words of what I think about them. Nate shared links for his reviews in the first article so I will add links for these episodes as well after each introduction. Give them a peek! Also YellowEyedSam continues to offer comparison videos between episodes from the show and anime. Thank you Nate and Y.E.S.!
  • A Tribute to the Badass Men of Supernatural - Part 1

     After I made "A Tribute to the Kick-Ass Women of Supernatural" and part 2 , I wanted to write a similar article about men. I value both in Supernatural because the show has some of the most remarkable guest actors and actresses, so the loss of both are deeply felt. I decided to use the same criteria as I had in my first article. I chose the male characters that had a great impact on me and were also Badass on their own accord.

  • “I’m Sorry, Have You Met Me?” I'm KAREN!

    There are people we've heard of, but never really got to know (Like Sully was to Dean). 
    Sometimes we run into old friends and realize we've changed and we need time to reconnect with each other (Like Sully and Sam's friendship).
    With this in mind, it's a sensible idea to visit with our Contributing Staff here at The Winchester Family Business.

    The WFB Writing Staff was challenged to select eleven questions to answer from an extensive list. 
    When you are done reading, we would like to challenge you to answer a few of the questions that our staff member answered.
    Long-time visitors or new one, We'd like to get to know you better, too.

    And, I hope all y'all are thirsty....

    Welcome another brave writer to accept the SEASON ELEVEN/ ANSWER ELEVEN CHALLENGE!

  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections "Don't Call Me Shurley"

    Even if time has gone by, I have still mixed feelings about writing this article. "Don't Call Me Shurley" was a magnificent episode. If you ask me, it was the finale on which this season should have ended. After that we found out that Thompson was leaving Supernatural, which hit me pretty hard. He was on a roll in season 11, writing the best episodes he has ever written.

  • WEDNESDAY’S WATCHING Supernatural 11.16 "Safe House"

    Having two "elderly statesmen" carry on hunting in an entertaining manner underlines the possibility that Dean and Sam could carry on for many years, too.
    A spinoff for Rufus (Steven Williams) and Bobby (Jim Beaver)? Continuity and parallels with past seasons, and within this season's arc, were mind warping because they flashbacked to the past apocalypse and hinted at future events for this season.

  • Supernatural: The Animation, Closer Look PART 3

    Happy New Year everyone! It is time for the part three of the animation series! If you want to check them out, here are the links for PART 1 and PART 2

    As always, I will give a short introduction to the episodes and then offer a few words of what I think about them. Nate shared links for his anime reviews in the first article so I have added links to them after each episode introduction. Give them a peek! Also YellowEyedSam continues to offer comparison videos between episodes from the show and anime. Thank you Nate and Y.E.S.
  • Supernatural Season 8: Hits & Misses - Part One

    Tablets and trials, purgatory, mind-control, vampire BFFs...which part is your favourite? What part do you fast-forward on rewatch?
  • Fan Video of the Week: Supernatural Reflections 10.15, 10.16, 10.17

    Since The WFB Rewatch schedule has had to skip two episodes to compress season 10's reruns before the season 11 premiere, this week I feature fan videos for three episodes at once: "Inside Man', "The Things They Carried" & "Paint It Black"!

  • Supernatural: The Animation, Closer Look PART 1


    Something old - something new - something borrowed - something blue


    Did you know that there is an animated version of Supernatural? Several people showed interest in learning more about Supernatural: The Animation so I was thinking that during this hellatus I could pull back the curtain a little bit on the series as I have watched all the episodes.

    This is the first part of five articles about the animation. In this article I will briefly introduce the characters and their backgrounds. First, though, I will start by defining animation.
  • Thoughts on Supernatural 10.17: "Inside Man"

    Well, even before I saw this episode between the preview and the excited, emotional tweets exploding my phone 24 hours before I was able to watch it, I just knew it was going to be one of those gut-wrenching, heart bursting installments that would take days to recover from. In hindsight, the watered down version of Supernatural that was last week almost makes sense in lieu of "Inside Man" - our emotional drives needed to be fully stocked and loaded to handle this journey, and so did those of our writers.
  • Thoughts on Supernatural 9x01: "I Think I’m Gonna Like It Here"


    2 deaths door

    Welcome back, Supernatural and hello to the newly refreshed, reinvigorated and totally rejuvenated season nine! Where last year was a journey of discovering just what sacrifice was too great and how far was too far, about blurring the lines of good and evil, right and wrong beyond what we thought even the Supernatural world could do; this season promises an entirely new realm of possibilities.

  • Thoughts On Supernatural Episode 7.18: "Party On Garth"

    Here we are, the final episode before a baby-induced hiatus. Is anyone else mystified as to how we are onto episode 18 of season seven already?

    Anyways....on to the review!

  • 7:10 - Thoughts on "Death's Door"

    alt

    No doubt about it, episode ten has historically packed one heck of an emotional punch and this one is not breaking that pattern. Death's Door was nothing short of perfect. 

    I've broken the two coinciding streams of this episode apart and examined them as whole pieces, rather than intercut with one another, so bear with me through the somewhat recap-esque quality of this review. The episode was so wonderful, that most every moment deserved mention. I'm still reeling from the information and emotion that was rolled into that intense 40 minute episode. I've already watched it three times consecutively and it still gets me every time. Everyone have tissue on hand? Okay, let's get to it.
