  • Promotional Images for Supernatural Episode 12.02

    Geez, we haven't even seen episode 12.01 and now we've got images for 12.02!  The CW is getting pretty efficient these days.  Looks like the promo we've been watching online covers the first couple of episodes, not just the first.  
     
    I'm going to warn, these are pretty spoilery.  Way more than usual.  They give away the farm if you ask me.  We see Rick Springfield as Lucifer and several shots of the Sam rescue.  Castiel and Mary join in for fun.  Yay, group effort!  Anyway, I think these are meant to generate some excitement.  
  • Retrospective Thoughts on Supernatural 12.16: "Ladies Drink Free"

    One of the lastSupernatural episodes of season 12 that was more formulaic and standard MOTW than big-picture focused, "Ladies Drink Free"was a decent easement back after the March mini-hiatus. Even in retrospect, the episode offered entertainment and drama without too much heady overflow in advance of what the rest of the season would bring.

  • Sharing Season 12's Premiere: Supernatural Watch Parties

    ONE MORE WEEK! Next Thursday, October 13, 2016, the SPNFamily will once again be reunited with our beloved Supernatural! Sam and Dean will begin their twelfth year of saving people and hunting things, and we’ll be with them every step of the way. To kick off the final countdown, let's start making plans for the S12 premiere!
     
    In the long awaited continuation of their saga, Mom is alive but very confused; big brother is alive and can’t wait to surprise everyone with news of their win against evil; little brother is barely alive, in really big trouble and in deep mourning for the last remaining member of his family; Castiel is alive but MIA; Crowley is alive (well, dead actually) but is a man (well, demon actually) without a kingdom; Lucifer is alive (there weren’t any scorched wings or ashes on the ground, right?) and on the run; and the Men of Letters have turned into the enemy, betraying the most important members in the history of their existence. The premiere promises to be packed with both action and emotion as each of these dramas unfolds! 
  • Supernatural 12.21 - Why "There's Something About Mary" Triggered a Brutal Fan Storm

    I've struggled with this review for several days.  I've considered, started, and then reconsidered all sorts of ways to express just how wrong "There's Something About Mary" was and how it was a betrayal to a variety of fans.  This was just more than another bad, poorly written episode by Brad Buckner and Eugenie Ross-Leming.  This was a breaking point for many fans and could be the point everyone looks to when they see a mass exodus of fans or an outright riot for change that goes straight to Mark Pedowitz.  Or both.  Either way, I'm one of the ranks that is furious and can't take this crap anymore.   
     
    I mean, this episode got so many people riled up that triggered a wave fan protest on Twitter with the hashtag #FireBuckLeming.  There were so many tweets, that the topic actually trended.  It surpassed #Supernatural at one point.  This naturally caused other fans to speak out against such behavior as “cyberbulling” and bad fan behavior, which led to some online skirmishes.  It got ugly.  
     
    Was the episode THAT bad?  No, I think there have been worse.  But it was bad enough because it's extremely disappointing and frustrating when we get something like this in episode 21 with two more episodes to go, especially when we've been waiting for something to happen all season long.   The actions of the characters made no freaking sense, yet another senseless character death was used to generate an emotional reaction from Sam and Dean, even though just about everyone they have known dies, thus ruining all prior development that was put into said character, and there’s the really stupid stuff like how do Sam and Dean get mail delivered to a secret bunker no one is supposed to know about?   How did Crowley, Mr. Ten Steps Ahead, let Lucifer get the better of him?  He’s not that dumb.  I can’t even talk about Mary Winchester without throwing things.  The only promising scenario to come out of this is maybe Crowley the rat can finally hook up with Olivia the hamster.  
     
    I have more very, very angry thoughts coming on this week’s TV Fanatic Roundtable, so be sure to check that out.  Otherwise, I’m never, ever watching this again.  At this point, I’m skipping all of Season 12.  I have zero interest in watching the final two episodes.  Congrats to Andrew Dabb on his rookie season as showrunner for officially killing the show I once loved.  You’ve mangled the Lamborghini buddy.

  • Supernatural Inspiration: Leave the World Better Than You Found It

    “You know, I was thinking about what Bishop said. About... What do you think out legacy is gonna be? When we're gone, I mean, after all the stuff we've done, you think folks will remember us? You know, like, a hundred years from now?”

    Dean makes this statement at the end of “The  Memory Remains,” and it has profound meaning. We all want to be remembered. We all want to know that over time---after we're no longer here---that we'll have left something behind that people will remember us for. It's human nature. We seek to find that meaning of life and need to build up our legacies. We all want to be the one that says proudly “Kilroy Was Here.” However, no matter how much money we make, no matter how many experiences we have, no matter the prestige we earn, at some point, we will die and there will only be fleeting memories left behind.

    And so, Sam answers his question by stating, “Well, I mean... guys like us, we're not exactly the type of people they write about in history books, you know? But the people we saved, they're our legacy. And they'll remember us and then I guess... we'll eventually fade away, too. That's fine, because we left the world better than we found it, you know.”

  • Supernatural Review: 12.09 "First Blood"

    “I won’t let you sacrifice yourselves. You mean too much to me...to everything.”

    Supernatural came back last night with a bang, and a few bloody deaths. “First Blood,” episode nine of season 12, was everything I’d hoped for. I’m a die-hard fan of Supernatural, so I tend to go a little easy on episodes that might not live up to my through-the-roof expectations, but even I will admit, this season has been up and down for me. “First Blood” reignited my faith in the show, not to say that I had none, it was just slightly lacking.

    So what made this episode so special? Let’s start from the beginning.

  • Supernatural S12 Spoilers From TV Guide Comic Con Edition

    Look what I got today hot off the presses!  It's the TV Guide/Warner Brothers 2016 Comic Con Special Edition of the magazine.  I did manage to get the really pretty one of Sam and Dean on the cover!  

    Supernatural got five pages in this edition.  There's a Behind the Scenes look at "Baby," a two page profile on the Super Women of "Supernatural", and interview with Mark Sheppard, and a "Burning Questions" preview asking what to expect in season 12.  

    I'm sure you all are reading that going, "Shut up Alice, get to the spoilers!"  I'm going to warn, it's very spoilery light.  It does share some interesting information though.  These are excerpts from the TV Guide "Burning Questions" article.  All credit goes to Marisa Roffman and Ileane Rudolph. 

    What do the British Men of Letters want?

    The British Men of Letters haven't allowed a "Supernatural" related death in their territory since 1965. One of their members, Lady Toni Bevell, made quite an entrance, showing up in the Winchesters' Kansas bunker and shooting at Sam.  Though his character is the target, Padalecki understands where she is coming from. "She really thinks of Sam and Dean as villains," he says.  "To her, they started the apocalypse and nearly got God killed."

    Who will save Sam?

    Castiel will be "extremely motivated to get Sam back," executive producer Andrew Dabb says.  "He does things we know Cas is capable of but we haven't seen him do in recent years." 

    What does the return of the boys' mother mean? 

    Mary learns "these two kids [she left behind] have grown up into men who are hunters - something she tried to avoid," Dabb says.  "She's kind of their mother in name only.  She's meeting her sons again, but they are not what she expected in some ways, she is not what they expected."  

    Where the hell is Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino)?

    "Cas feels like it's his mission to try and make that right," Singer says.  Crowley is also on Lucifer's trail, but unlike the Winchesters and Castiel, he doesn't merely want to stop him, he wants payback for humilating him in front of his former minions," Dabb says.  I think it's very personal for Crowley, in a way a lot of stuff isn't."  

    What's next for Rowena (Ruth Connell)?

    The Scottish witch...may take her wicked ways down a notch now that she "has seen that being all-powerful isn't all it's cracked up to be," Singer says.  "But one always has to be suspicious of Rowena." 

    Check for this edition on the newstands.  It says that it hits newstands July 19th, but some places are putting them out early.  There are spoilers for lots of other WB shows too like "Blindspot," "The Flash," "Supergirl," "Arrow," "Gotham," "The Big Bang Theory," "The 100," "The Vampire Diaries," "iZombie," "Lucifer," and "The Originals" as well as previews for new shows "People of the Earth," "Frequency," "Time After Time," "Riverdale," and "Powerless."

  • Supernatural Season 12: Rank 'Em in Five (or Ten) Minutes

    It’s that time of year again!  Time when we take a look at the season gone by and through a series of articles scrutinize the hell out of it.  Or, perhaps we just have some fun.  This article definitely falls on the fun side.  It’s time to play, Rank ‘Em in Five (or Ten) Minutes!
    The rules are simple.  Below is the list of all 23 “Supernatural” Season Twelve episodes.  Based on your personal opinion, rank all of them from best to worst.  The key is though you’ve got to do it in five to ten minutes.  The idea here is to get your gut reaction.  Once they are ranked you are done.  No extra evaluation or second guessing.  Share your results in the comments.  
  • Supernatural Theories 101: What’s in the box?!

    [Editor's Note: The explanations about season 11 and the comments and spoilers about season 12 that came out of Supernatural's San Diego Comic-Con panels and press room interviews left us with a lot to think about! To pass the hiatus until we all learn what season 12 has in store for us, LK came up with a creative way to speculate about the future of our show!  See what you think of her ideas!]

    Do you ever feel it is time to “Think outside the box?”, to let your imagination and creativity fly where no one has flown before? Last season (like many before that) left us some unanswered questions. Some can still be revisited in the future while some could go in a lot of existing directions. So what ideas and speculation on future story lines does my box hold? Where do I think they are going or might go with them? Some of these ideas can be truly out there or maybe they are, by a miracle, where the story will go. Let’s play with the ideas for season 12 and beyond. You see, even Dean wants to know what is in the box!

  • Sweet Sorrow of Forgetting: Supernatural 12.11 "Regarding Dean"

    Editor's Note: The WFB has a long tradition of welcoming guest writers. When Ashley first sent me a link to her review of "First Blood", I couldn't wait to share it with The WFB readers! This is her outstanding review of "Regarding Dean". I hope you like it as much as I do! - Nightsky

     

    “Regarding Dean” was one of the most anticipated episodes of season twelve because it was known early on to be the first comedic episode in quite some time. I, for one, love the funny episodes of “Supernatural—“Yellow Fever,” “Swap Meat,” and “Changing Channels” among my favorites. However, this episode was not just created to give us a good laugh, it bore depth and meaning, and it highlighted the close relationship of the brothers, something I've been wanting to see more of, like in the good old days.

  • The Supernatural Season 12 Editor's Choice Awards - Part One

    Just like every year, The WFB doesn't stop with just the fan choice awards!  Your friendly neighborhood editor-in-chief/site admin is a redhead with some pretty strong opinions and ones that should be shared.  This was a 23 episode season, so there's plenty more awards to be given, good, bad and indifferent.  The best part too is I get to make up categories as I go along, just because I can.  
     
    So here we go, time for a time honored summer tradition here at The Winchester Family Business.  In no particular order, The Supernatural Season 12 Editor's Choice Awards!  
     
  • The WFB Short Attention Span Theater Presents: Good Riddance 2016

    2017 is here and the Winchesters aren't the only ones happy to see the new year.  It was a bad year all around.  It's time for a little review and reflection of 2016 before moving on. 
  • The WFB Supernatural Season 12 Editor Choice Awards - Part Two

    My choices for part one were revealed, so without further delay, here are the Supernatural Season Twelve Editor's Choice Awards, Part Two!   Seventeen more categories of Awards that in the end have little relevance in the grand scheme of things, but they still make a diversion-y and fun read as we hit the real doldrums of Hellatus.  Enjoy!
  • The WFB Supernatural Season 12 Fan Choice Awards

    The moment is finally here!  The nominations have been tabulated, now it's time to vote.  Below there are 17 categories that give you, the fan, the power to choose the good, bad, and indifferent moments of "Supernatural" season 12.  
     
    I'm sure a couple of you very estute fans are going, "Wait a second, there were only 16 categories in the nominatons."  That's true, but a couple of fans chose to submit write in categories, and one by paladinteacher was way too good to pass up.  I could easily come up with enough good choices for it.  So you'll notice that as our "Bonus Write-In Question" at the end of the voting.  
     
    The rules are simple, there are none.  Once you submit your vote, refresh the page and you can vote again as often as you'd like.  Results will be hidden until the winners are revealed, which will be in a couple of weeks.  Voting will run until Sunday, July 16th at 11:59 pm ET.  
     
    I'm going to warn, it may take a minute for all the questions to load on each page.  Please be patient.  Also, as a standard disclaimer, remember, "Supernatural" fans are an opinionated lot.  Some of these questions may offend those who choose to be less critical or those that don't think we're being critical enough!  Plain and simple, if you don't like a question, feel free to skip it.  All these responses are based on fan choices made during the nomination process (with a couple extra thrown in by yours truly to beef up the selections) and they're there to gauge fan opinion across a very wide spectrum.  They're bound to be controversial in places.  Also, if an option is missing that you think should have been there, that is the importance of being involved in the nomination process.  I only can go with what I'm given!
