Supernatural Season 2

  • Ode To The Trickster

    Editor's Note: In case you hadn't yet heard this important piece of American trivia, today is National Tell A Joke day in the U.S.A! Since it's also a Thursday, which signifies Throw-Back-Thursday in social media, it seemed appropriate to pull out Karen's magnificent ode to Supernatural's favorite jokester, the Trickster!  

    When this article was originally published on March 5, 2010, it was run as pure poetry without the interuption of the associated images of each scene. I thought we could have some fun with it today by adding appropriate pictures for each stanza, only instead of me doing it, I would turn creative control over to you for a day! Pop over to WFB's Photo Galleryand pick the pictures you'd like to see in each verse. You do not have to choose the most obvious choice of the scene being referenced. You know Supernatural! Is there another scene that also illustrates or is funny given the lines? Note the exact episode name and picture number (hover over or click the image) in the comments below. I added verse numbers as a reference. I'll choose the best option if there are multiple offerings for each verse and slowly add them over the next few days. Have fun looking through images of some of the funniest episodes in Supernatural's history! Too much work? Then just enjoy the artistry of the poem and picture the action in your mind!

  • Mallena's Supernatural Musings: 2.10 "Hunted"

    There has been a lot of talk lately about Jody and the women of Supernatural. In honor of the upcoming spin-off about Jody and her wayward sisters, I wanted to review an episode that had some of my favorite women characters featured in it.  This episode is also very entertaining and well-written.  I do love Ellen, and Ava is a great character (who should have gone down a different path and came back to our show, now and then), but the main thrill here is the battle between Sam, Dean, and Gordon.  

  • 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.

  • “How am I then a villain?”: Crowley as Supernatural’s Shakespearean Antagonist (Part One of Four)

    Part One: Seasons Five and Six

    "Cannot be ill, cannot be good." - Macbeth, Act I, Scene 3

    Villains and heroes share one important trait - they often act to build a better world, to right perceived wrongs, to bring justice to an unjust system. They diverge, many times, in motivation. Heroes tend to act from a place of common good, a common good that is shared by the audience, whereas the villain acts from a place of common good not shared by the audience. Good villains (and heroes) are not easy to create. There is always the danger of caricaturism, of creating one-dimensional personalities that speak words but are unconvincing in both action and motivation. Good villains are ambiguous - they require the audience to sympathize, perhaps even empathize, with their acts. One of the best writers of both heroes and villains was William Shakespeare, and this essay seeks to align some of Shakespeare’s most complicated villains with Supernatural’smost complicated villain, Crowley. I hope to delve into Crowley to show how he echoes a long line of valued antagonists, how he inherits and translates the villain for today’s genre audience.

  • Finding Lucifer at SDCC 2016: The Supernatural Connection

    There are certain expectations when one receives a press pass for San Diego Comic-Con. The most obvious expectation is that you actually provide press for the movies, television series and stars that are being showcased to their fans. This is unbelievably exciting when the interviews are with the stars of your favorite shows. It's rather intimidating, though, when you are asked to interview the cast of a show you've never seen. That was the case for several of my SDCC 2016 interview assignments, including the show Lucifer. Having just finished its first season on Fox, it was renewed for a celebrated second season so its stars were appearing at Comic-Con for only the second time.

    Not only had I had never seen Lucifer when I was asked to cover this press room, in fact I had made a conscious decision to not watch it as I felt a very strong allegiance to a devil by the name of Mark Pellegrino. I had also determined that there were enough angels, demons, depictions of Hell, and apocalyptic battles in my life given my devotion to a much older show called Supernatural!On a deeper level,  I objected on moral grounds to a show that epitomized Satan as a good guy.
  • 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 Fanmade Intros/ Opening Credit Videos

    "The most imaginative people are the most credulous, for them everything is possible." ― Alexander Chase


    After I made the first articles "Top 10 Supernatural Opening Sequences: TV Show Overlay Videos - Part 1" and Part 2 , I found many more  Supernatural introduction videos! Those first two articles showcased videos that introduced Supernatural with the style of other shows, but how about fans' original intros for specific Supernatural seasons or even episodes? What I found is pretty awesome. There is not that much writing in this article but there sure is a lot of eye candy to watch, so grab a coffee cup or a bowl of ice cream because there is lot to see! All of the videos are fairly short but so are the opening credits usually.
  • Supernatural GO!

    This is an idea for a Supernatural mobile game!  The series' writers already invented a mobile hunting game in season 2 episode 18 : Hollywood Babylon. This one isn't quite the same but maybe a bit better. My choice for a name is "Supernatural GO"! Aka "Supernatural, THE HUNT"! (inspired by "Pokemon Go!")

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

  • “I’m Sorry, Have You Met Me?” I'm Elle! By WEDNESDAY

    Sometimes we think we know someone, or assume others know us, when actually we really don't know each other at all.
      Things also have a way of changing. People come and go.
    With this in mind, perhaps it's a good idea to delve a little further into getting to know our Contributing Staff here at

  • Supernatural Haiku Episode Guide, Season Two

    Welcome to the haiku episode guide for season two! This was where it all began for me; I wrote the very first of my episode haiku for "Croatoan," and later went back to fill in all the holes. Dean's despair and resignation in "Croatoan" made poetry my only appropriate response; that has never changed. Hope you enjoy! What are your takes on these episodes?
  • 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.
