I'll admit it: As soon as the credits rolled for "Meta Fiction," I hated it. I didn't hate it with the venom reserved for "Season Seven, Time for a Wedding," or "Taxi Driver," but I hated it.

Re-discovering Purpose in Supernatural
A few weeks ago, TV.com's Tim Surette included Supernatural on his list of "5 TV Shows That Need End Dates". His reasoning is solid, and his estimation of the seasons following the almost universally lauded Season 5 finale is more or less accurate. Season 6 suffered from Soulless Sam, whose semi-resurrection also somewhat trivialized the harrowing conclusion to Season 5. Season 7 wandered through the Leviathan fiasco. But Seasons 8 and 9 have started to coalesce a thematic idea that could, if handled carefully, give the series added longevity. The problem is the show has only periodically capitalized on it.

If Season 1-5 were an apocalyptic epic—a conspiracy of prophecy, Biblical and mythological archetypes, propelled by the zealous high-powered bureaucrats in both Heaven and Hell beholden to these predestined narratives, a conspiracy which was ultimately undone by familial love and free will—then what follows is the ...Read more

Alternative Spin-Offs to Supernatural: Tribes
So, Supernatural's long-rumored spin-off series finally has a name and a pilot order. Supernatural: Tribes. In addition to perhaps the worst title in recent memory, the series description—hunters and "tribes" of supernatural monsters fight it out in Chicago—sounds nothing at all like the long-running CW (olim WB) cult staple, includes (at least as far as I can tell) none of the original series' cast, and shows few signs of connection beyond existing in the same fictional world. While I'd like to hold off judgment until it actually airs, it nevertheless doesn't sound very promising.

That said, I have long believed Supernatural to boast a world and a mythology that would sustain further stories beyond those in the immediate orbit of the Winchester brothers. Instead of Tribes, I'd like to see Supernatural embrace the mini-series format, similar to the model of American Horror Story. Each ...Read more

Monsters of the Week
In my opinion Supernatural's first season alone has provided more scary episodes (The Asylum, Bloody Mary, The Girl in White to mention a few. The fourth season's nailbiter: Family Remains which most likely goes down as the creepiest episode of Supernatural ever.) than the last few seasons. Which I'm fine with, they have a story that they want to tell and obviously not as much time can be spent chasing ghosts. But it saddens me that we get a "Monster of the Week" kind of an episode and I'm only amused. The latest episode "Bad Boys" didn't have a single scene that made my pulse race, which is weird as the MotW actually looked terrifying. They just didn't take proper advantage of it.
I'm going to take a wild guess and say that most people who were drawn to this show have visited ...Read more

Supernatural "Mother's Little Helper" Review: Project Mayhem
"Mother's Little Helper" laid out some mythology and actually managed to be kind of creepy.

Fan Favorites: Which Recurring Characters Would You Like to See Again?
Supernatural has always had a small cast of regulars, with the focus remaining on our favorite Winchester Bros: Sam and Dean. But the show has had plenty of recurring characters rotating in and out throughout the past eight seasons, and many of them have been great hits. So which recurring characters were your favorite, and which would you like to see again? Here are my top picks:

1. Garth

There are so many things to love about Garth. He gets drunk off one beer, is "the new Bobby," owns a sock puppet named Mr. Fizzles, and is so laidback and anger-free that he was immune to possession by a specter (a spirit that possesses those with grudges, in case you've forgotten). We haven't seen Garth since the early part of last season, though there has been plenty mention of him. With a bigger focus on the Men of ...Read more

Supernatural "Blade Runners" Review: Intervention
This was such a weird episode—and a kind of boring one, too, but mostly weird with a totally squandered Men of Letters story, Sam being the actual freaking dumbest hunter ever, aaaand Snooki.

The Supernatural Spin-off Has a New Name and New Lady Werewolf
Supernatural: Bloodlines is a better title, but it's still not that great.

Supernatural "#THINMAN" Review: Tazed and Confused
On one hand, I love the Ghosfacers and I love parallels and I love when the Winchesters get smacked in the head with the Startling Realization stick. On the other hand: That was some really ham-fisted paralleling, yo.

Supernatural features stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki as Dean and Sam Winchester, two brothers who travel the country looking for their missing father and battling evil spirits along the way. Sam Winchester is a college student bound for law school, determined to escape his family's past - unlike his older brother, Dean. Ever since they were little their father has been consumed with an obsession to find the evil forces that murdered his beloved wife, in result recruiting and training his two young sons to help him in revenge. They have grown up as hunters of the supernatural. Sam escaped under the premise of going to college, and now has a happy life with his girlfriend, Jessica, and a promising future career. Dean, however, stayed behind with his father to join him in his "hunting". Dean goes to Sam for help when their father goes missing. Now Sam must join his brother to find him. His one weekend trip to search for the missing John Winchester becomes an ongoing quest after a horrible tragedy ruins any thought of a happy life for Sam. The two brothers, bound by tragedy and blood to their mission, travel across the country encountering terrifying and dangerous forces most believe to be nothing but superstition and folklore, such as the Lady in White, the Indian beast known as the Wendigo, Phantom Travelers who cause plane crashes, Bloody Mary, vampires, demons and many more. From Warner Bros. Television Production Inc. in association with Wonderland Sound and Vision, with executive producers McG (Charlie's Angels, The O.C.), writer/executive producer Eric Kripke (Boogeyman) and Robert Singer (Midnight Caller).
