  • Visual Review: Supernatural 10.13 "Halt and Catch Fire"

    There are several different layers to each Supernatural episode.  Fans can watch the obvious story of the monster hunt, the symbolic story of the myth arc, or the dramatic story of the Winchester brothers' plight. We almost always notice and comment on the superb acting, and often we notice the sets, but it is easy to take for granted things our eyes don't initally see. Supernatural has a tradition of  superior direction and cinematography. In the episode "Halt and Catch Fire", the talent for those positions was offered by John F. Showalter and Serge Ladouceur, respectively. Looking at the directorial choices and composition of the scenes, including color, angles, lighting, props and wardrobe, adds a whole new level of meaning to the story.

  • Visual Review: Supernatural 10.10 "The Hunter Games"

    There are so many different ways to watch and enjoy a Supernatural episode. You can watch for the plot or for the pretty. You can analyze canon, decipher symbolism or listen for subtext. One of the best filters to apply to each show, though, is specifically analyzing the cinematography.  The visual themes in "The Hunter Games" were particularly striking.
