  • A Tribute to the Badass Men of Supernatural - Part 2

    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. To create my list for the men, I decided to use the same criteria 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 began my male tribute by first looking at the "Family" and "Angels" in Supernatural (because we all know one particular angel is "family" to the boys!). Part 1 also include fan videos of Sam and Dean, because as we all know, they are the most kick ass of them all!  If you haven't read that article yet, take a moment to go back to Part 1 of The Badass Men of Supernatural!  

  • Let's Discuss Roundtable: What do You Want to See in Supernatural Season 11?

    What do you want to see happen in S11?

    That question was asked of me and Alice in the TV Fanatic Roundtable for “Beyond the Mat”.  Before Supernatural begins the final sequence of eight  episodes that will hurdle us all toward whatever heart stopping, cliff-hanger disaster the Winchester brothers must endure this year, this question is worth pondering.

  • Thoughts on Supernatural 10.23 - "Brother’s Keeper"

    Transport trucks. Hell hounds. Falling angels. Leviathan. As far as finales go, Supernatural has done them every way imaginable and usually manages to leave the audience hanging on the edge. "Brother’s Keeper" certainly had some edge, but as finales go – was it on par with what we’re used to overall?
  • Thoughts on Supernatural 13.05 “Advanced Thanatology”

    This was an episode of "Supernatural" where all the elements came together and delivered. Interesting, if classic, plot-of-the-week, brothers on the road, emotion and angst and a major plot advancement/reveal for the grand scheme of the "Supernatural" world. Yes, this is the type of episode where the simple all clicks together and works.

  • 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.
  • Threads: Supernatural 13.05 "Advanced Thanatology"

    Four Days Later

    I can’t believe that Supernatural season 13 just keeps getting better! “Advanced Thanatology” was another superb episode, extending the run to five in a row! Steve Yockey may have produced the best episode yet this year – quite an accomplishment considering my high opinion of the prior episodes. Billie returned as Death, and in a stunning, emotional scene, Castiel returned to his family. There were no distractions of an alternate universe (which I love but still takes time away from the bros), the stupidity of Heaven or Hell (or the associated cheesy depictions therein), no Princes of Hell or ridiculously fake drama, and no spinoffs to set up. Just Sam and Dean on a hunt, having deep conversations around the Impala.  Action, emotion and heart stopping (no pun intended?) surprises. It’s like Supernatural found its center again.

    The impact of this episode came primarily from two powerful scenes – the return of Billie and her ensuing conversation with Dean, and the return of Castiel. The first encounter was prolonged, full of significant dialog, insights and foreshadowing. The second was just a few seconds long and not a single word was spoken yet it left us breathless.  I considerd solely discussing these scenes since there is so much to explore about each of them, but that would be doing a disservice to the story. The underlying hunt, with its messages of fear, death and grief, masterfully wove together threads of meaning as well. To understand this episode, we need to look at the story’s entire tapestry.
