I'm Going To Pretend Everyone Died At The End of Supernatural Season 10

Supernatural has had an amazing run. The first five seasons of Eric Kripke’s monster-fighting show had a beautiful arc, and formidable storytelling chops, and the five post-Kripke seasons have had moments of greatness, despite an aimlessness bordering on ennui. But after season 10? I’m done. » 5/21/15 11:20am 5/21/15 11:20am

Supernatural Proves It Can Still Surprise Us Sometimes

At first blush, this was another episode of Supernatural in which the boys deal with a case of the week, while a half-dozen subplots keep humming along. Castiel's budding romance, Crowley's crisis of leadership, that Cole guy, etc. etc. But unexpectedly, this episode proved that Supernatural still has some decent… » 11/26/14 4:00pm 11/26/14 4:00pm

Supernatural's Snarky Love Letter To Fans Becomes A Defense Of The Show

Last night, Supernatural aired its 200th (!) episode, and instead of going big, the show went meta. We visited a girls' school where a group of (mostly) fans are putting on a Supernatural musical, featuring robots and aliens. But all of the "Destiel" jokes morph into a defense of Supernatural as great storytelling. » 11/12/14 8:33am 11/12/14 8:33am
