Articles for Supernatural Season 3

Supernatural returns tonight, and we had the opportunity a while back to connect with executive producer Robert Singer to discuss the philosophy behind the show‘s story-telling, what to expect from season 3 of Supernatural, and how they are weathering the backlash over the addition of new characters. Read more »
The Winchester brothers of the CW‘s Supernatural have battled a variety of villains from the underworld, including vampires, vengeful ghosts, poltergeists and a horde of demons.  This season is no different, with the brothers already going up against the Seven Deadly Sins, a pack of demons representing the human vices, and the Changelings, creatures who have taken the form of homicidal children. Seeing as Supernatural just returned to the small screen, viewers can expect to see a lot more evil characters making their way into the show, one of whom happens to be one of the most popular maniacal villains on the big screen. Warning, spoilers ahead. Read more »
There‘s that old aphorism in show business that there is no such thing as bad publicity, and that has certainly held true for the CW‘s Supernatural.  The furor caused over the addition of new female characters, a move regarded by many fans and journalists alike as an attempt to sex up the show, certainly was a boon for the franchise.  Now that the first character, Ruby, has redeemed her presence by revealing herself as a demon, an unexpected twist, the second character, Bella, appears to have established herself as a bit of a snarky foil.  Read more »
Either Supernatural‘s “Sin City” was the series‘ hitting on all of its story telling cylinders, or I‘m just reading way too much into it.  Given the fact that Supernatural has, in the past, effectively used symbolism and metaphor to strengthen its mythology, I‘m guessing some of the underling themes of the episode may be worth a closer look.  Supernatural certainly works best when it is presenting on multiple planes. I feel compelled to warn you, though, if you don‘t like theorizing that makes long term predictions, this ‘afterthoughts‘ is not for you. Read more »
The CW‘s Supernatural seemed to have a rocky reentry ahead with news of the new characters dominating fan boards and fan‘s anxieties in the months leading to the horror road shows return.  Now that it is back, however, fans and the press alike have turned their morbid fascination away from invading aliens and into the deepening mythology of the show that - for all intent and purposes - hasn‘t missed a step.  If there were a single word to describe Supernatural‘s return it would be “Consistent.” Read more »
As I finished watching Supernatural‘s recent episode, "Bedtime Stories," I wondered to myself: should this be the CW‘s signature show?Now, before all the Gossip Girl, Reaper, One Tree Hill, and Smallville fans start blowing their tops,`hear me out. Those shows have limited appeal, save maybe Reaper. Yup, I said it. Gossip Girl may be the semi-critical darling of the CW, but it‘s audience really wont reach out past the, well, girl appeal. Read more »
The writers‘ strike has been the primary cause of disruption in the television world, but Supernatural scribe and producer Sera Gamble wants to assure viewers that her participation in the strike doesn‘t mean that she doesn‘t care for the show or its fans.  She is even hoping that the strike will reach an end soon, so that she and her fellow writers can get back to work. “I care about my TV show, I care about my job… but now that we‘re in strikeland, I hope that we just strike effectively and we come to a speedy resolution,” she told cwsource.tv.  “I know that [fans are] thinking, "How can they do it so they can keep making the show that we love?....‘ we all want to keep making the show that they love, and in order to do that, we have to get through the strike, and we hope that the studios will cooperate and everyone will come to a resolution.” Prior to the strike, Supernatural writers were busy scrambling to get as many episodes done as possible.  Should the strike continue on to the new year, it seems the show will last until at least next month. Warning: mild spoilers ahead. Read more »
On Sunday, November 11, Supernatural stars Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki received an Honorary Special Forces coin from Special Forces Soldier Master Sergeant Kevin Wise.  The two actors were the special guests at Creation Entertainment‘s "Salute to Supernatural and Buffy/Angel," a convention held in Schaumburg, Illinois that was attended by numerous show fans, one of whom is Wise.While on stage with Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, Wise told the crowd that the first two seasons of Supernatural are the most requested DVDs among armed forces personnel in Iraq and Afghanistan.  Wise also said that Warner Brothers Entertainment, Inc. and Kripke Entertainment, Inc. are shipping 3,000 DVDs to the soldiers stationed in such areas. Read more »
An incident that took place on October 30 has left Supernatural actress Katie Cassidy with a citation for suspicion of underage drinking and lying to a police officer, according to Tucson police reports.  The incident has only come to light now as it was only recently that a state public records request was submitted. According to the reports, the 20-year-old actress, who happens to be the daughter of singer-actor David Cassidy, was a passenger of a pick-up truck being driven by a 19-year-old man named Caleb Wilson late last month.  At around 2:15 in the morning, the officers signaled the vehicle to stop near East Grant Road and North Euclid Avenue when they could not decipher the license plate. Read more »
When it was announced that two new female characters would be introduced in the new season of Supernatural, many fans of the show were outraged.  The following months were characterized by angry and disappointed web discussions, which writer Sera Gamble was well aware of. “It‘s an interesting thing about doing a show, especially a genre show, where the fans are invested and are very active in their online communities,” Gamble told cwsource.tv. Read more »
Supernatural fans can now get a dose of their favorite show outside of the small screen, thanks to the new Official Supernatural Magazine.  The first issue of the publication will go on sale today, November 27. “This publication is for you and you alone. And we‘re working hard to make it worthy of your affection,” show creator Eric Kripke said in a press release.  “There‘s dozens upon dozens of artists and geniuses who care so much about Supernatural, who make it the show that it is.  Starting with this issue, you‘ll get to know them." Read more »
One of the most controversial decisions made by the producers of the CW‘s Supernatural was to add two new female characters in season three.  Bela (Lauren Cohan) and Ruby (Katie Cassidy) were brought in to stir up trouble for Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), but all they did was cause massive debates amongst Supernatural fans.  We‘ve had months to get used to their presence and to see if they add anything valuable to the show, so I think it‘s now safe to say what we‘ve all been thinking: get rid of them, and do it quickly. Read more »
Supernatural fans came out in droves to discuss our latest article debating whether or not Bela (Lauren Cohan) and Ruby (Katie Cassidy) are good additions to the CW series.  Whether you love them or hate them, it‘s clear that BuddyTV users have strong opinions regarding the changes in the third season of the hit series.  Over 87 percent of you became addicted to the show due to the bond between Sam and Dean, and many of you have some harsh words for creator Eric Kripke now that the brothers are often distracted by "RuBela."  Read on to see how BuddyTV users really feel about the new girls. Read more »
One of the most exciting holiday themed episodes airing this year is tonight‘s Supernatural, where Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have to battle an evil version of Santa Claus.  In a recent interview with TV Guide, creator Eric Kripke revealed that "we wanted to be the first, and I‘d imagine only, Christmas special complete with impalements, cannibalism and torture scenes."  Kripke also dropped hints about some revelations that will be seen in tonight‘s show, as well as what fans can expect in new episodes once the writers‘ strike wraps up. Read more »
Check out all our lists for BuddyTV‘s Top 7 of ‘07 to relive the best and the worst of the year in television.Sorry Sam, but there‘s only room for one Winchester boy on this list, and that honor goes to Dean, played by Jensen Ackles. With two adorable actors playing brothers on CW‘s Supernatural, you‘d think female affections would be split down the middle on this issue, but in reality, Jared Padalecki‘s Sam is constantly thrown under the bus so that the screaming throngs of girls can stampede towards Ackles. Read more »
Supernatural fans better start booking plane tickets to Los Angeles and clearing a couple of days off their schedules at the end of March.  That‘s because Creation Entertainment is holding a special convention called "Salute to Supernatural," which will feature appearances by both Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, as well as other guests yet to be announced.  The event will take place on Saturday, March 29, and Sunday, March 30, though it may cost you a bundle for a chance to meet the Winchester boys. Read more »
Supernatural fans who want to see Jensen Ackles tackle a character who‘s far removed from Dean Winchester are in luck.  The upcoming comedy film Ten Inch Hero casts Ackles in the role of the hilarious and sex-crazed Priestly, a guy who works in a submarine sandwich shop and spends his days dispensing free-wheeling advice to customers.  Not only will the role allow Ackles to show off his comedic chops, but he also gets a multi-colored mohawk as well. Read more »
When the CW recently announced their new midseason lineup, I doubt they expected the uproar that Supernatural fans would cause over their favorite show being left off the schedule after it runs out of new episodes.  Nearly 1000 people voted in BuddyTV‘s online poll about the situation, and 94 percent of you wanted to know why the adventures of the Winchester brothers wouldn‘t be shown in repeats in the new year.  Many fans also had some choice words for the CW over how they‘ve treated the series since they acquired it, with this announcement only being the latest blow for a show that has often been underpromoted. Read more »
The CW announced its revised post-strike schedule today, guaranteeing that big changes are in store for the network as it rolls into midseason.  If you‘re a fan of reality television such as America‘s Next Top Model, Beauty and the Geek, or anything involving The Pussycat Dolls, you‘re sure to be happy, but if you‘re hooked on cult shows like Supernatural or Life is Wild, the news is less promising.  Both shows will be disappearing from the CW after they air the remainder of their original episodes, with no repeats scheduled. Read more »
Though the CW recently announced that they won‘t be airing repeats of Supernatural any time soon, it‘s not all bad news for fans of the fright-filled series.  The network has confirmed that the show will return on January 31, and is set to consecutively air its remaining four episodes.  This means that Supernatural addicts will be seeing the last of the Winchester brothers on February 21, and may not see them again until after the writers‘ strike wraps up.For fans who can‘t wait until the end of the month and want to know some details on the remaining episodes, we have a few intriguing spoilers to share. Read more »
The writers‘ strike is slowly destroying the television landscape as every scripted show begins to run out of episodes, leaving us with nothing but brainless reality filler.  Not only is the strike negatively affecting the current TV season, but it‘s highly unlikely it‘ll be wrapped up in time for writers to create pilots for the fall 2008 season.  This could leave us in the strange position of having no new content to watch this fall, as networks are forced to bring back underperforming shows that may have otherwise been canceled.  While this may mean that some shows of dubious quality will be returning, it could be good news for fans of the CW‘s shamefully overlooked Supernatural. Read more »
Fans who enjoyed the Supernatural: Origins comic book series published by WildStorm last year will definitely want to check out Supernatural: Rising Son, a six-issue miniseries that will tell another story about the young Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester.  The first issue is set to hit stores on April 23 and will pick up a few years after Origins, following a 7-year-old Sam and 11-year-old Dean as they travel with their father, John.  "Whereas the first series was more about John and his becoming a hunter, this one‘s much more of a dysfunctional family story," explains writer Peter Johnson, who‘s also a co-executive producer on the TV show. Read more »
Fans were thrilled when the first issue of the Official Supernatural Magazine hit shelves back in November, featuring interviews with creator Eric Kripke, actress Katie Cassidy, as well as an awesome spread about the Winchester boys.  On January 22 the second issue of the magazine will be in stores, and it promises to be jam packed with even more Supernatural goodness.  In fact, if you subscribe to the magazine now you‘ll not only get six issues, but a U.S. map highlighting the show‘s key locations, as well as 10 stickers featuring memorable monsters from the series. Read more »
I have a horrible confession to make:  I have yet to see every episode of Supernatural.  I watched about half of the first season when it originally aired, then fell out of it due to circumstances beyond my control.  Though I absolutely despise tuning into shows when I‘ve missed episodes, I started watching again at the beginning of season 3 because I desperately needed a Supernatural fix.  Since then, I‘ve picked up seasons 1 and 2 on DVD and have slowly been catching up with the Winchesters.  Watching new episodes while also watching season 1 is a strange experience, and it really helps highlight all that has changed on the show over the years.  Most things have changed for the better, but there are a few things from the old days that I wish would return. Read more »
When the CW announced its new midseason schedule, the fact that Supernatural reruns were nowhere to be found caused an uproar in the fan community.  Fans of the series saw this as being yet another setback for the Winchester boys, which was especially painful since the show is already in a terrible time slot and gets little promotion.  The good news is that the outcry from the fans did not go unheard.  The CW‘s network communications executive, Paul McGuire, recently sent an e-mail to About.com where he emphatically stated that the network still stands behind Supernatural. Read more »
After watching the repeat of the Supernatural episode "Fresh Blood" last night -- a privilege that I soon won‘t have since the CW will no longer be airing reruns -- I started to ponder something:  is there actually anything wrong with Sam?  One of the biggest mysteries in season 3 of Supernatural has been whether or not Sam (Jared Padalecki) is 100 percent "pure" after being brought back from the dead at the end of season 2.  The demon Azazel taunted Dean with the notion that Sam might have come back slightly changed, and we‘ve seen numerous signs that he‘s not the same conscientious Winchester we once knew.  If something really is wrong with Sam, what could it be, and what does it mean for the future of the character? Read more »
It‘s time for fans to gear up for the return of the demon slaying Winchester brothers, as Supernatural airs the first of four all new episodes beginning tomorrow night at 9pm.  In a recent interview with Kristin at E!Online, creator Eric Kripke revealed his feelings on the Bela and Ruby controversy, what it feels like to go up against Lost, and what chance the show has of returning for another season or two.  This week‘s episode, entitled "Malleus Maleficarum," will deal with classic Supernatural tropes like witches and hexes, while also offering up some back story on the mysterious Ruby (Katie Cassidy). Read more »
There are a wide array of questions that plague fans of the CW‘s Supernatural.  Will the show be renewed for a fourth season?  Will Ruby (Katie Cassidy) and Bela (Lauren Cohan) ever go away?  Will Dean‘s impending death be averted?  However, the one question that truly rages through the internet like an uncontrollable wildfire is this:  which Winchester brother is sexier?  Every fan seems to have a preference between the two boys, even if it‘s by a narrow margin.  Now, we here at BuddyTV are going to attempt to answer this mystery once and for all.  Yes, using scientific methods and the latest photographic technology, it‘s finally time to crown one Winchester brother the sexier of the two. Read more »
Last Thursday‘s new episode of Supernatural left fans stuck with a whole lot of questions.  Are all demons really former humans?  Can Ruby be trusted?  Who is this new rival to Sam "rising in the West"?  Was Sam changed by coming back to life?  To answer these questions and more, we went directly to the source: Supernatural creator and mastermind Eric Kripke.BuddyTV spoke to Kripke yesterday to get to the bottom of all these questions.  In addition, he talked about the three remaining episodes and how and when Supernatural might return after it runs out of new episodes on February 21.  Aside from being a brilliant showrunner, Kripke is also quite generous, giving credit where credit is due to his writing staff for their great contributions.  Among the revelations in the interview is that the notion that demons are humans didn‘t even initially come from Kripke.Continue reading for the full transcript of the interview as well as the mp3 audio file. Read more »
While fans were thrilled to see Supernatural return to the CW with brand new episodes a couple of weeks ago, they weren‘t so happy about the timing.  The show‘s first new episode in over a month just happened to go up against the season premiere of a little show called Lost.  The return of the Winchester brothers was seen by about three million viewers, and that number fell by about 390 thousand for the second episode.  Now, in an effort to get the word out about the remaining installments of the series, fans have started a campaign entitled "Supernatural Will Not Get Lost."  The campaign has involved creating fan art promoting the series, as well as sending e-mails about the show to TV columnists and the CW. Can the efforts of a dedicated group of fans help the criminally underrated CW show go up against one of the most buzzed about hits on television? Read more »
Now that the writers‘ strike is about to come to an end, the networks are figuring out how quickly they can return their shows to the airwaves.  The good news for fans is that many shows will be back with brand new episodes in April or May, which means that the wait for new content is nearly over.  The CW recently announced how many more episodes they plan to produce this season for their biggest hits, including Supernatural, Smallville, Gossip Girl, and One Tree Hill.  Read on for more details as to when these shows, and a few others, will be back with new installments. Read more »
With Valentine‘s Day tomorrow, love is on everybody‘s mind.Have you ever imagined yourself in a relationship with the characters you watch on TV every week?  It‘s as fine a pastime as any other, but the problem is, there is only one of you and dozens of eligible bachelors on TV.  You aren‘t afforded with your own dating reality show with TV‘s leading men as contestants, so how are you possibly supposed to decide who is the best match for you?Never fear, we at BuddyTV take this dilemma very seriously, and we‘ve developed a personality quiz that will tell you who your perfect match is: Who is Your Ideal TV Boyfriend? Read more »
Last night‘s episode of Supernatural, "Mystery Spot," was a perfect blend of the emotional, the hilarious, and the horrific.  Thanks to an unwelcome visit from the Trickster, we got the chance to see Dean die in a variety of different ways.  He was hit by a speeding car, shot in the chest, crushed by a desk, felled by poisonous tacos, and suffocated by a piece of sausage, amongst other things.  The deaths were hilarious and terrifying, and the reactions they got out of Sam (Jared Padalecki) ranged from disbelief to gut-wrenching grief.  This definitely had to be the worst day ever for the Winchester brothers.Aside from being a fantastic hour of television, "Mystery Spot" also left us with some questions to ponder.  Read on to see what BuddyTV readers are pondering now that Dean‘s terrible day is finally over. Read more »
Earlier in the week, the CW announced how many episodes they planned to produce for each of their hit shows for the remainder of the television season.  Today they announced exactly when the first post-strike episodes will begin airing.  This is great news for fans of shows such as Supernatural, One Tree Hill, and Gossip Girl, as the strike wrapped up just in time to ensure that the gap between new installments won‘t be too torturous.  Read on to discover when your favorite CW shows will be returning to wrap up their seasons. Read more »
One of the things that makes Supernatural such a fantastic series is the complex mythology built into the show.   Not only do all of the monsters and ghouls that the Winchester brothers face have their own back stories, but even items like the demon killing Colt have a rich history.  In a recent interview with StarPulse.com, Supernatural creator Eric Kripke hinted at how he‘d like to delve deeper into the show‘s mythology, and even discussed a possible spin-off idea that he‘s had in the back of his mind for a while. Read more »
Few things in the world are creepier than an evil child, especially when it‘s portrayed correctly.  I‘m thinking of Satanic little Damien in the original version of The Omen, or maybe those twin girls in The Shining who have given me nightmares since I was about 12-years-old.  While it‘s a bit too early to tell if we can add Lilith, the demon leader revealed on last night‘s episode of Supernatural, to that elite list, chances are she‘s going to be one scary girl.  There are over 100 variations of Lilith in various mythologies and religions.  She shows up in everything from The Bible to Ancient Sumerian texts to Mesopotamian legends.  After last night‘s fantastic episode, I thought it‘d be a good idea to take a look at some of these myths and see if we can figure out where the Supernatural crew are finding their inspiration for this new character. Read more »
Last Thursday‘s final pre-strike episode of Supernatural, "Jus in Bello," brought some good news for fans of the series who are hoping for a fourth season pickup.  The episode was seen by 3.22 million viewers, which is Supernatural‘s largest audience of the season.  It also matched its best performance of the year in the important 18-34 demographic amongst adults and women, while scoring a season high in the 18-34 male demographic.  Even more impressive is that it accomplished all of this without its usual Smallville lead in. Needless to say, ratings like this will make Supernatural look quite appealing when it comes time for the CW to decide whether to renew it for another year. Read more »
The Winchester brothers have faced all sorts of demons and ghouls on Supernatural, but nothing has tested their relationship quite like the trials they‘ve experienced in season 3.  Since coming back from the dead at the end of last year, Sam (Jared Padalecki) has been acting like a cold-blooded killer, dispatching evildoers without his usual sense of guilt or remorse.  In a recent interview with Cult Times Magazine, Jared Padalecki talked about how much fun it is to play evil, and also teased a rift between the Winchesters that we may see before the end of the season. Read more »
In a previous article, we reported on a Cult Times interview with Jared Padalecki where he had a few very interesting things to say about his character on Supernatural.  The most interesting of all was the statement, "We find out this season what Sam‘s relationship was like with his dad beyond what we know, and if his dad really was his dad and if Dean really was his brother."Needless to say, the possibility of Sam not being a full-blooded Winchester almost caused the heads of many fans to explode.  If it did turn out that Sam wasn‘t really related to Dean, would it be a brilliant twist or would it cause the backlash of the century? Read more »
One of the secret weapons behind Supernatural‘s success is writer/producer Sera Gamble.  She‘s been writing for the show since the first season and has been responsible for some of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean‘s (Jensen Ackles) more memorable adventures, including the final pre-strike episode, "Jus in Bello."  Gamble recently spoke with Firefox News about what fans can expect when Supernatural returns in April, as well as the chances of the show being renewed for a fourth season. Read more »
Though the CW has been struggling mightily in the ratings lately, it looks like they‘re going to be loyal to their most popular shows throughout the next season.  Today the network announced early renewals for six of their series, all of which will be returning next fall:  Supernatural, One Tree Hill, Smallville, America‘s Next Top Model, Gossip Girl, and Everybody Hates Chris.  Yes, fans of the Winchester brothers, who are always wary that Supernatural is on the verge of cancellation, can finally breathe a sigh of relief.  The network announced that all of these shows are essential to the network‘s identity and pull in solid ratings, especially among the important demographic of women 18-34. Read more »
Dean Winchester certainly hasn‘t had the best luck during the third season of Supernatural.  Not only is he destined to kick the bucket by the end of the year thanks to a deal with a demon, but he‘s already died a couple hundred times thanks to the Trickster and his crazy time twisting magic.  On top of that, Dean‘s had to deal with Sam‘s (Jared Padalecki) slow slide to the dark side, and he‘s also been forced to contend with Bela (Lauren Cohan) and her Colt stealing ways.  Sometimes a guy just can‘t catch a break.  Despite Dean‘s run of bad luck, Jensen Ackles keeps a positive outlook regarding the series and his career goals.  The actor recently spoke with the Australian magazine TV Week about how the Winchesters make a living, the most outrageous thing he‘s ever read about himself, and what the brothers would probably smell like in real life. Read more »
There are some television shows that I simply can‘t imagine as big screen motion pictures.  For example, I have no idea what could happen in a Lost movie, and though they‘ve been kicking around the idea of a 24 feature film for years, I just can‘t picture it.  However, some television shows such as Firefly and The X-Files have made wonderful transitions to the big screen.  These shows have been able to make the leap successfully because they have strong characters and are easy to adapt into standalone adventures.  Much like its inspiration The X-Files, I think Supernatural would work perfectly as an action packed, feature length extravaganza.  If the Winchesters ever did get the chance to make it to theaters, what kind of butt-kicking action would we want to see? Read more »
Sit down with any comic book fan and they will happily tell you how Alan Moore‘s Watchmen is the absolute pinnacle of the medium.  In fact, Moore‘s deconstruction of the superhero genre is so well regarded that Time Magazine declared it one of the 100 greatest English language novels written since 1923.  That‘s no small feat.  As with any popular graphic novel, it was only a matter of time until Hollywood came calling and decided to adapt it for the big screen. When it came time to cast the Watchmen movie, director Zack Snyder (300) looked to Jeffrey Dean Morgan to play the pivotal role of The Comedian.  The film won‘t be released until March of 2009, but the first photo of the actor in costume has already been released.  Fans should be prepared to see the former Supernatural and Grey‘s Anatomy star tackle a darker role than anything he‘s played before. Read more »
A friend and I were recently having a fun discussion about television characters who need to die.  Most of our picks, such as Claire Bennett (Hayden Panettiere) on Heroes, were based on the fact that a character had become annoying or outlived his/her usefulness on a series.  However, a much better reason to kill off a major character is because it‘s the best way to serve the story.  It doesn‘t always make the fans jump for joy, but oftentimes killing a beloved individual is the most gut-wrenching way to jump start new and exciting plotlines.Strangely enough, after I was done mentally whittling down the cast of Heroes, one other character who needs to bite the dust was left twirling in my mind:  Supernatural‘s Dean Winchester. Read more »
Last week, I wrote an article stating that Dean Winchester needs to die at the end of Supernatural‘s third season.  I didn‘t write this because I dislike Dean, but simply because I can see no other way for the writers to rescue him from the deal he made to save Sam.  After repeatedly being told that Dean is doomed, it seems like the only satisfying conclusion to this arc is for him to kick the bucket for a short period of time.Though BuddyTV readers understood my thought process, most of them disagreed with me.  Over 5000 people voted in our poll regarding Dean‘s fate, and over 85 percent of them think that Sam (Jared Padalecki) needs to find a way to save his brother before Hell comes calling.  If Dean is to be saved from ending up six feet under, how should it happen?  Will Lilith or Bela (Lauren Cohan) play a part, or is the rescue mission completely up to Sam? Read more »
You would think that the CW would know by now not to cross Supernatural fans, but it seems like they never learn their lesson.  When the network announced their midseason schedule back in January, they had completely bumped Supernatural repeats off the schedule and replaced them with episodes of Reaper.  It was assumed that we would not be seeing the Winchester brothers again until the new, post-strike episodes started airing.It would be an understatement to say that Supernatural fans were peeved by this news.  Dozens of people commented on our site to rant against the CW, upset over the lack of respect shown to Eric Kripke‘s creation. So, is it any coincidence that the network has now added Supernatural repeats to the schedule once again, beginning April 3? Read more »
Nobody was more excited than me when it was announced months ago that the madman from the Friday the 13th films, Jason Voorhees, would be facing the Winchester brothers on Supernatural.  The hockey mask loving killer was supposed to show up in the recent episode "Dream a Little Dream of Me," but due to some pesky rights issues it never happened.  However, it looks like I‘ll be getting the next best thing, because Supernatural star Jared Padalecki has just been cast as the lead in the new Friday the 13th remake.  He‘ll be playing a guy who investigates some grisly murders up at Crystal Lake, which is something Sam Winchester would surely be comfortable with. Read more »
The Smart Pop series of books includes some of the most insightful and interesting writing about our current pop culture obsessions.  The series gathers together writers, philosophers, scientists, and scholars, and has them write essays about television shows such as 24, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Firefly, and House.  These books always provide detailed glimpses into whichever television show they cover, often giving readers topics to ponder that may have never crossed their minds.The latest hit show to undergo the Smart Pop treatment is the CW‘s Supernatural.  The various insights about the Winchester brothers won‘t be published until March of 2009, but now fans have a chance to submit their own essays to be included in the book.  Three winners will be chosen, so it‘s time to put all of your knowledge about the Winchester boys to good use. Read more »
If there‘s one thing that all of us can agree on here at BuddyTV, it‘s that we love to talk about Supernatural.  Season 3 of the CW series has been fantastic so far, and we‘re all patiently waiting for the final four episodes to kick off on April 24.  Will Dean die and go to Hell?  Will Sam turn to the dark side in an attempt to save him?  The answers to these questions can‘t arrive quickly enough.In an effort to provide Supernatural fans with exciting new content in the coming weeks, we‘ll soon be visiting the set of the series.  Not only will we get to see the environment where the show is created, but we‘ll also get to spend some quality time with the brothers themselves, Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki.  Before we head to Vancouver for this exciting excursion, we want to hear from the fans.  If you had the chance to visit the set and hang with the cast, what would you ask about?  What would you want to see? Read more »
The boys from Supernatural just can‘t seem to escape the blood and guts.  A few weeks ago we announced that Jared Padalecki has scored the lead role in the re-imagining of Friday the 13th, and now it‘s been announced that Jensen Ackles will tackle his own horror remake.  He‘ll be starring in My Bloody Valentine, which is based on a 1980s slasher flick that most people probably don‘t remember.  The thing that will make this a big departure from Supernatural is the fact that it‘s being shot in 3-D, meaning that you‘ll get to experience the illusion of Jensen standing right in front of you. Read more »
Weeds‘ star Mary Louise Parker has broken off her engagement with actor Jeffrey Dean Morgan.  The couple, just over a month after getting engaged, have now parted ways once again in what has become a classic on-again off-again relationship.  Parker and Morgan hit it off originally on the set of Weeds where Morgan played Parker‘s now-deceased husband.  They had a brief romance at the beginning of 2007, but soon after that they broke up.  Then, near the beginning of 2008, the couple rekindled their relationship, culminating in their surprise engagement last month.  The two have now, apparently, parted ways again, but if we are to believe the sources, they‘ve done so amicably.  According to the Associated Press, Morgan and Parker remain good friends and hold each other in the highest regard. Read more »
Every day, we here at BuddyTV will let you know all the new shows airing that night to help you plan your TV-viewing schedule. In addition, we’ll highlight two episodes we think are worth checking out to help diversify your love of TV.Tonight is full of repeats from both Lost and CSI, so I’ve decided to do something a bit different: in addition to promoting one new episode tonight, I’m going to spotlight a repeat that you may have missed the first time because you were too busy watching new episodes of Lost. It’s an episode of the CW’s Supernatural called “Mystery Spot,” and it’s a Groundhog Day-inspired tale that will make you laugh and cry. Read more »
It seems like the folks at the CW are having a good time promoting this week‘s return of Supernatural.  The episode, entitled "Ghostfacers," finds Sam and Dean showing up on a television series similar to Ghost Hunters, and it‘s definitely a departure from the show‘s usual structure and filming style.  This first post-strike installment  reunites the Winchesters with the bumbling hunters from season 1‘s "Hell House," and it‘s filmed as though it‘s an actual paranormal reality series.To get into the faux-reality style, the network has launched Ghostfacers.com.  The website features training tips, exclusive videos, a fake movie trailer, and even the official, and completely addictive, "Ghostfacers" theme song. Read more »

Last night‘s episode of Supernatural was supposed to be the last one of the year, but thank goodness, the writer‘s strike ended so we‘ll be getting more installments later this spring.But I ask you, what are we supposed to do until then??Well, we at BuddyTV are very excited to offer you some great prizes that will help keep your mind filled with visions of those delightful Winchester brothers.Read on for more details. Read more »
I bet you‘ve all been anxiously awaiting the first new Supernatural episode of the new year! But January 31 and episode "Malleus Maleficarum" is almost upon us.To tide us through until then, BuddyTV has a really exciting contest. We are giving away one t-shirt (brown with "Supernatural" written in orange block letters across the chest) that has been autographed by both Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. Size M.Read on to see how you can enter the contest. Read more »
Supernatural comes back tonight for a brand new episode, but I didn‘t need to tell you all that. I‘m sure most of you have been anxiously anticipating tomorrow night (and reading all about BuddyTV‘s visit to the Supernatural set, naturally). And so, it is with great pleasure that I announce to you that we have a very special contest to celebrate this most Supernatural of occasions. We are giving away an autographed photo of Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. Both of them graciously provided their autographs for us when BuddyTV senior writer, John Kubicek, went up to hang with them on the set of Supernatural.Tonight‘s brand-new episode at 9pm on the CW, called “Ghostfacers,” is a huge departure for the series. Shot using only hand-held cameras, the whole episode is filmed as if it‘s a pilot for a new Ghost Hunters-like show, hosted by Ed and Harry, two nerdy wannabe demon hunters the Winchesters met in season 1. “Ghostfacers” will certainly blend the show‘s horror elements with touches of comedy, inevitably leading to some hilarious quotes. Read more »
My opinion may be in the minority, but I truly believe that season 3 of Supernatural is shaping up to be the best year of the series.  Fans can complain about the brighter lighting, the lack of rock music, or the existence of Ruby (Katie Cassidy) and Bela (Lauren Cohan) all they like, but none of these things have really affected my love of the show.  In my eyes, Supernatural season 3 has maintained a perfect balance of epic storytelling, emotional character moments, hilarious standalone episodes, and heavy drama.  Last night‘s installment, "Ghostfacers," was another example of creator Eric Kripke and his writers firing on all cylinders.  It‘s impossible not to love an episode that contains the immortal line, "All this time you were teaching us about heart, about dedication, and about how gay love can pierce through the veil of death and save the day." Read more »
After last week‘s stand-alone episode, Supernatural is back again tonight for some Dean-centric goodness.In tonight‘s episode, entitled "Long-Distance Call," Dean (Jensen Ackles) is stunned after he receives a phone call from his dad (guest star Jeffrey Dean Morgan) who tells him he has a solution to get Dean out of his deal. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean fight because Sam is skeptical that it is really John on the other end of the phone and warns Dean not to listen to him but Dean disagrees and sets off on his own path to follow his father‘s orders.As soon as you finish watching tonight‘s episode, be sure to log onto BuddyTV because we have got another round of great prizes for you!  Read on to see what you can win. Read more »
Everyone knows that Supernatural star Jared Padalecki is a tall guy. We‘ve seen him tower of co-stars in nearly every TV or movie he‘s done. Yet not until you come face-to-face with the man (or, in my case, face-to-neck) can you truly appreciate Jared‘s height.BuddyTV sat down with Jared Padalecki during our recent Supernatural set visit to ask him some questions submitted by fans on our site. Like Jensen Ackles, Jared was in the middle of a busy day of filming, and during nearly every break he was on his cell phone, dealing with travel issues to make it to EyeCon in Orlando. Continue reading for the exclusive video of the interview. Read more »
Last week we brought you our exclusive video of Supernatural star Jensen Ackles answering fan questions and reliving co-star Jared Padalecki‘s most embarrassing moment.  This week, we bring you part two of our Jensen Ackles interview, which was recorded during our set visit to the Supernatural sound stages in Vancouver.  By now, if you‘ve seen the video clips and photos of the next episode, "Ghostfacers," you might begin to recognize the setting for this interview, because it‘s actually on one of the sets from that episode.For this part of the interview, I asked Jensen Ackles about his unexpected vacation from the writers‘ strike, Dean‘s journey in season 3, and where he thinks Dean might end up in the end.  Jensen Ackles claims he doesn‘t speculate about his character‘s fate anymore, but that doesn‘t stop him from tossing out a few possible outcomes regarding Dean‘s deal to be sent to Hell. Read more »
In our final video interview with the boys from Supernatural, Jared Padalecki talks about tomorrow‘s big return, “Ghostfacers.” If you‘re observant enough, you may have been able to discern from the preview videos of the episode and these interviews that during our set visit, we filmed inside the house featured in “Ghostfacers.”Jared spoke to us about the premise behind the episode and the differences and difficulties involved in the way it was filmed. If you have clear enough vision and a good enough monitor, you might also notice Jared‘s face is a bit roughed up, though he explains that too.  Without a doubt, “Ghostfacers” is a very different kind of Supernatural episode, one that comes back after the strike as an appetizer before delving into the main course of the “Dean goes to Hell” storyline.SPOILER WARNING: This interview contains some minor spoilers about next week‘s episode, “Long-Distance Call.” Read more »
Jensen Ackles is a busy guy. When BuddyTV visited the set of Supernatural last week, they were filming scenes from the second episode back, “Long Distance Call.” Without giving anything away, the scenes we saw suggested this is going to be an emotionally heavy episode for Dean as the deal for his soul quickly approaches its due date. While Dean is getting a bit darker, fear not, as his trademark sense of humor is still intact, with one particularly funny barb about the pleasantness of his posterior.It wasn‘t just the emotion that made Jensen Ackles‘ day hard, but the fact that they were filming a four and a half page scene, which he claims is one of the longest, if not the longest, they‘ve ever filmed. During a break, Jensen got away to talk to BuddyTV. Continue reading to see our exclusive video interview. Read more »
Jensen Ackles sitting on a tiny bike. Of the many things I saw and experienced during BuddyTV‘s exclusive set visit to the Vancouver sound stages of Supernatural yesterday, the most memorable moment came at the end of a long day as I towered over the 6‘1‘‘ Jensen Ackles, giving him his very own BuddyTV T-shirt (click on the photo for an enlarged image of Jensen on his mini-scooter). We discussed the show‘s diverse fans and the fact that, though it was already 9pm, he still had a few more hours of work ahead of him. But what made this conversation so memorable wasn‘t that it was with the star of a beloved TV show, but that he sat on that mini-scooter the entire time. Read more »
I‘m not objective about last night‘s episode of Supernatural. I know many of you fans loved it because of the great emotional moments with Dean (Jensen Ackles), but for me, “Long-Distance Call” will forever be the episode I got to see first-hand. I‘m a bit obsessive when it comes to TV, DVRing all my schedule shows well in advance, scheduling my entire life around the many shows I have to watch (not want to, have to). So to actually see talented people create something I love so much was an experience I never though I‘d have.It doesn‘t hurt that I got to watch a really good show get made. Though I wasn‘t an original fan, I‘ve fallen quite hard for Supernatural, and I owe it all to this job and you, the passionate fans who convinced me this show was something special. Read more »
It‘s going to be a very long summer while we wait to find out how the cliffhanger from Supernatural‘s third season finale will be resolved.  Though we have months to wait before we‘ll know how Dean escapes from Hell, we‘ll soon have the complete third season on DVD to help us pass the time.  Warner Home Video recently announced that Supernatural Season 3 will be released on DVD on September 2, and it‘ll be packaged with over an hour of awesome extras.  Read on for a rundown of the special features and a glimpse at the moody box art. Read more »
Supernatural creator Eric Kripke seems like a man with a plan.  Like most of the great minds working in television, Kripke appears to know exactly where he wants his story to go and how his characters should evolve.  However, one of the toughest aspects of producing a series is making sure your vision isn‘t too expensive.  A creator can dream up the most fantastical things imaginable, but those things will only make it to the screen if they can be done cheaply.In a recent interview with TV Guide, Kripke revealed his plans to have an all-out demon war in season 4 of Supernatural.  Unfortunately, due to the shrinking budget imposed by Warner Brothers, the studio that produces the show, the war will have to be smaller and grittier than originally planned. Read more »
When we last saw Dean Winchester on Supernatural, his body was dead and his soul was suspended somewhere in the depths of Hell.  If there‘s one thing that the action packed season 3 finale proved, it‘s that creator Eric Kripke knows how to drive fans crazy with a cliffhanger.  Though we still have months to wait before we discover Dean‘s ultimate fate, Kripke recently spoke with TV Guide‘s Matt Mitovich and revealed a fairly significant spoiler for the show‘s fourth season.  There‘s an interesting change coming to the Supernatural universe, and it may leave fans of the series rather unhappy.SPOILER WARNING!!!  GO NO FURTHER IF YOU HATE SPOILERS!!! Read more »
I had been predicting for weeks that Dean would meet his maker in Supernatural‘s third season finale, so why was I so shocked and saddened when it actually happened?  Maybe it‘s because creator Eric Kripke gave me a kernel of hope at the beginning of the episode, then cruelly ripped it away.  Many Supernatural fans had predicted that Sam would find a way to save Dean by using his powers, and when that possibility was presented by Ruby (Katie Cassidy) I figured I knew where things were headed.  I expected some sort of last minute save, and though it would have been a bit on the deus ex machina side of things, I was ready to welcome it.  However, that didn‘t happen.  Sam chose not to work with Ruby due to his brother‘s distrust of her, and Dean ended up dying because of it."No Rest for the Wicked" came to an end with Dean trapped in Hell and screaming for help.  Where does the show go from here? Read more »
The CW announced its fall schedule today and it features all good-looking people.  I suppose one could make the argument that all television features good-looking people, but not to the extreme extent that the CW has taken it.  You see, most of the CW‘s Fall schedule not only features good-looking people, the series themselves are about those people being good-looking, or at least it‘s a very important part of the series.  There are three hours of new programming on the CW‘s Fall schedule, one of which may include the most highly-anticipated new series going into next season.  Before any Reaper fans go ballistic and worry about why the series isn‘t on the Fall schedule, don‘t worry.  The CW has ordered 13 episodes of Reaper, which will hit the air at mid-season.  There‘s a very good chance that it will take over Smallville‘s time slot at some point, but nothing is set in stone.  Read more »
Like most fans, I find myself feeling both excited and scared as we move closer to Supernatural‘s third season finale.  I‘m excited because I know that the show always delivers a fantastic season ender, but I‘m frightened by the prospect of Dean‘s time running out.  Will he go to Hell, or will he escape the deal at the last minute?  Perhaps an even more important question is: Will the writers wrap everything up before the episode comes to a close, or will we be left with a terrible cliffhanger to mull over all summer?To get fans prepared for Thursday night‘s season finale, entitled "No Rest for the Wicked," we have two exciting clips from the episode. Read more »
Making a deal with a demon never seems to end well, but that doesn‘t  stop the characters on Supernatural from forging shady pacts with otherworldly monsters.  We‘ve already seen John and Dean sacrifice their souls to save their loved ones, and in last week‘s installment, "Time is On My Side," we learned that Bela (Lauren Cohan) tossed away her soul in order to have her parents murdered.  Much to the delight of Supernatural fans the world over, things didn‘t end very well for Bela either.There are plenty of demon deals to go around, but as we move toward the season finale Dean‘s is obviously at the forefront.  What can the Winchester boys do now that they know Lilith holds Dean‘s contract? Read more »
Previously on Supernatural: Dean sold his soul to save his brother‘s life. It turned out Sam‘s rival for dominion over the demon army, Lil Lillith, also happened to be the one holding the contract for Dean‘s soul.The entire season is recapped accompanied by “Carry on My Wayward Son.” Wow, even the “previously on” package is awesome. The Supernatural season finale begins with Dean (Jensen Ackles) running through the woods trying to escape the Hell Hounds. Thankfully, it‘s just a dream. Sam shows up, saying Uncle Bobby has a lead on Lillith. It‘s T-minus 30 hours until Dean‘s soul is due, so it‘s the perfect time for a donkey show joke. Sam swears he won‘t let Dean got to Hell. Read more »
Previously on Supernatural: A crocotta played a mean trick on Dean, making him think he got a call from his Dead Dad John with insider tips on how to get out of his deal. It was a hoax, and time continues to run out as Sam and Dean desperately search for a way out.In the appropriately named Erie, Pennsylvania, some hot shot plastic surgeon is shoved in his car trunk. Later we see the surgeon return to the hospital, severely injured. He opens his jacket to a nurse who‘s “seen everything,” and she screams in horror when his insides spill out of him. Read more »
Last week‘s episode of Supernatural left me with the impression that Dean may be destined to go to Hell.  The Winchesters have explored every possible option to break Dean‘s contract over the course of season 3, and so far they‘ve come up with nothing.  Bobby can‘t help, Ruby (Katie Cassidy) can‘t help, and it‘s doubtful that John (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) will be returning from the grave with a last minute save anytime soon.  The only person who may be able to help is Lilith, and she doesn‘t seem like the friendly, approachable type.This Thursday‘s penultimate episode of the season, "Time Is On My Side," brings Bela back for what may be the final time.  Will she offer up some answers, or is Dean doomed?  To get fans ready for the new hour of Supernatural, we have two clips from the episode. Read more »
Last week‘s episode of Supernatural, "Ghostfacers," certainly wasn‘t for everyone.  I proudly declared my love for Sam and Dean‘s reality show debut, but other fans thought that it was an unnecessary waste of time, especially coming so close to the end of the season.  Those who didn‘t embrace "Ghostfacers" will be happy to hear that tomorrow night‘s episode, "Long-Distance Caller," gets back to normal and moves Dean‘s impending doom back to the forefront.  It also features a special appearance from Jeffrey Dean Morgan, and there‘s not a Supernatural fan out there that isn‘t excited about that idea.To prepare for "Long-Distance Caller," we have two exciting clips from the episode. Read more »
Previously on Supernatural: Dean sold his soul to a demon to save his brother, but upon learning that humans in Hell turn into demons, Dean began searching for a way to get out of the deal.Four weeks ago I had the pleasure of visiting the Vancouver set of Supernatural where I got to see them film scenes from tonight‘s episode. I toured the sets, talked to the stars and watched them film two scenes. As such, you‘ll have to forgive me when I geek out over stuff like the fact that I totally laid down on the Winchesters‘ motel bed (and before you ask, no, they weren‘t in it at the time). Read more »
Previously on Supernatural: Dean and Sam met the Hell Hounds, two lovable losers with a fondness for Ghostbusters and Buffy the Vampire Slayer.Finally new Supernatural episodes are back, and in an interesting twist, the show is putting the main storyline about Dean‘s fate on hold for a fun stand-alone episode. So let‘s all enjoy the geeky pleasure of the pilot episode for a new ghost hunting show, Ghostfacers. Read more »
After seeing Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki, the third priority during BuddyTV‘s Supernatural set visit was finding the third star of the series: Dean‘s 1967 Chevy Impala. Akin to Knight Rider‘s KITT or The Dukes of Hazzard‘s General Lee, the Impala has become a character in its own right.Eventually we were able to find it, covered by a giant tarp on the sound stage. However, as you might expect, the car doesn‘t necessarily look like the one on TV. As was the case with the special effects video we brought back, if you enjoy not seeing how the magic of TV works, you probably shouldn‘t continue and watch our video of the Impala. Read more »
Fans of Supernatural have been waiting a long time for the return of the Winchester brothers.  The final pre-strike episode of the series aired back in February, introducing viewers to Lilith and leaving them wondering if Dean (Jensen Ackles) would escape his one-way trip to Hell.  After more than two months, the show finally comes back on April 24 with the first of four new episodes.  To get ready for Supernatural‘s exciting return, we have three exclusive clips from next Thursday‘s episode, entitled "Ghostfacers." Read more »
During BuddyTV‘s recent exclusive Supernatural set visit, there was quite a bit of down time when Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki were filming, leaving us with our guide to tour some of the other talented people involved in making Supernatural what it is. One of those people is Ivan Hayden, the special effects guru of Supernatural who helps make the Winchesters look so cool when they kill demons.While Ivan was busy putting together some effects for the upcoming episodes, he was also already hard at work compiling special features for the Supernatural season 3 DVD set. In fact, he offered us a sneak peek at some of those features, so if you want to wait until probably August or September to see what special extras the DVD set will have, read no further. Read more »
Tonight‘s episode of Supernatural should be entertaining since, as of about two weeks ago, this was believed to be the third season finale of Supernatural. Instead, we‘ll be getting a handful of new episodes come April, so this isn‘t the end, but merely the beginning.But first, a Latin lesson for the few of you who don‘t already know what the title of this episode means. “Jus in Bello” refers to the generally acceptable practices in war. These are the civilized laws of war like peaceful negotiations. The yin to this yang is “Jus ad Bellum,” which refers to the laws that allow for armed combat. I suspect the Supernatural team is saving that second episode title for a big-ass showdown. Read more »
The final pre-strike episode of Supernatural airs tomorrow night, leaving fans hanging until the show returns on April 24.  "Jus in Bello" finds Sam and Dean getting arrested by the cocky Agent Henricksen.  However, when an evil demon shows up and starts possessing some of the police officers, Henricksen gets a lot more than he bargained for.  Other than that, "Jus in Bello" will find the Winchesters facing an entire army of demons, led by the mysterious new enemy from the West.  The episode promises to end on a heart stopping cliffhanger that will leave fans clamoring for new installments.To prepare for all the excitement tomorrow night, the CW has provided two exclusive clips from the episode.  Read on if you‘re not afraid of a few spoilers. Read more »
One of the most highly anticipated episodes of Supernatural‘s third season will be airing tomorrow night at 9pm.  Entitled "Mystery Spot," the episode finds Dean dying over and over again in a variety of grisly and comedic ways, in a twisted take on the old formula made famous in the film Groundhog Day.   It‘ll be up to Sam to save him, but since Dean is destined to die due to a pact he made with a demon, who knows if his terrible fate can be averted.To get fans ready for tomorrow night‘s exciting romp with the Winchesters, the CW has provided us with two exclusive clips from the new episode. Read more »
As if finding out there will be a handful of new Supernatural episodes starting in April or May thanks to the end of the writers‘ strike wasn‘t enough good news, tonight we get the long-awaited episode "Mystery Spot."  This is the Groundhog Day-like episode, and we all know that Supernatural is great at handling dark comedy.  Also, it‘s written by new staff writer Jeremy Carver, whose last script was the very funny and sweet "A Very Supernatural Christmas."Sam (Jared Padalecki) wakes up, but sadly it‘s Asia‘s “Heat of the Moment” and not “I Got You Babe.” Too bad for all you ladies, Sam sleeps with his shirt on. The boys get ready, and Dean (Jensen Ackles) is being extra annoying, gargling loudly as they brush their teeth. The boys head to a diner where Dean orders the special, a Pig in a Poke with bacon, and Sam orders a short stack, which I find funny given his height. When the waitress arrives, she drops the hot sauce and it shatters. Read more »
Last week‘s episode of Supernatural introduced a whole new world where demons are humans, Dean is doomed, and Sam has a new rival. Tonight Uncle Bobby returns and we go into the wonderful world of dreams. I imagine it will be a lot like “Restless,” only without the cheese man.Uncle Bobby (Jim Beaver) is walking through a dark house when some crazy editing and screaming begins. We see this is a dream, and Uncle Bobby is actually in a coma in his hotel room., Read more »
There are only three more episodes of Supernatural remaining, and this week‘s installment will delve into the twisted nightmares of our favorite characters.  The episode, entitled "Dream a Little Dream of Me," finds Bobby slipping into a coma due to a demented dream walker, and Sam and Dean attempting to save him before time runs out.  The episode promises to reveal more of Bobby‘s personal demons, and will also show why the man became a hunter. The CW has provided an exclusive clip of the new episode, which will air this Thursday at 9pm on the CW. Read more »
Last night‘s episode of Supernatural, "Dream a Little Dream of Me," finally jumped inside Dean‘s mind and revealed his fears over his impending death.  It was an emotional hour, but also had some hilarious moments and some very creative storytelling as the Winchester boys experienced the dream world.  On top of that, we also got some back story on Bobby, who was haunted by images of his dead wife.  We even got to see Jensen Ackles wrestle with himself, while making a very fitting reference to the horrendous Superman III.As always, BuddyTV readers had a lot to say about the twists and turns that the Winchesters experienced last night.  Read on for their reactions to the nightmarish episode. Read more »
Some of the best episodes of Supernatural tend to be the ones that expand upon the mythology of the series, which is why "Malleus Maleficarum" was so memorable.  We learned why Sam (Jared Padalecki) had been acting like a hardcore killer, more about Ruby‘s back story and intentions, as well as the fact that all demons used to be human.  The episode messed with our brains and what we thought we knew of the Supernatural universe, which left some viewers giddy and others skeptical.  Read on to find out what some of our readers had to say about the exciting events in last Thursday‘s episode. Read more »
Christmas comes early for Supernatural fans as the show offers its final episode of 2007.  Thankfully, unlike some other shows, this won‘t be the end, because Supernatural still has three more episodes to come in January before running out due to the writers‘ strike.  So grab a cup of egg nog and your favorite Burl Ives CD, and let‘s have "A Very Supernatural Christmas."A man dressed as Santa Claus rings a bell and a little kid comes to the stairs to witness the magic.  There‘s a clattering on the roof, and the kid thinks it‘s the reindeer.  When Santa goes to inspect the fireplace, something pulls him up and we hear crunching noises, then the Santa hat falls down, covered in blood. Read more »
Previously on Supernatural: Bad ass vampire hunter Gordon wanted to kill Sam, but was stuck in jail.  Dean sold his soul to the Crossroads demon to resurrect Sam.  Harmony was turned into a vampire after high school graduation and began sleeping with Spike before becoming a receptionist at Wolfram & Hart.This episode of Supernatural begins with Bela (Lauren Cohan) getting a visit from Gordon.  He‘s out of jail, and wans to know where the Winchesters are.  He threatens to shoot her, and says Sam (Jared Padalecki) is the anti-Christ.  She mocks him, then suggests he can pay for the information.  He doesn‘t have enough cash, so she wants his mojo bag.  It‘s priceless, but he gives it up, then she calls up Dean (Jensen Ackles).  As if shooting Sam wasn‘t enough, I suspect this act will make her irredeemable in fans‘ eyes. Read more »
Tonight‘s Supernatural features the return of Bela (Lauren Cohan).  Will she and Dean (Jensen Ackles) continue to heat up the screen, and will Sam (Jared Padalecki) forgive her for, you know, shooting him?A comely lass is jogging late at night when she spies a giant ship, but it quickly vanishes.  It‘s a G-G-G-Ghost Ship!  When she gets home, she takes a shower, and it‘s all creepy because something is watching her.  I never saw The Grudge, but I believe this is an homage to that.  And by homage, I mean blatant rip-off.  The girl gets killed. Read more »
It‘s been a long wait, but now Supernatural fans can once again get their fill of those dashing Winchester brothers. The show returns tonight to finish out the season with four brand new episodes. In a show of support from the network that rivals the decision not to air reruns after these four weeks, the CW is bringing the show back against the fourth season premiere of Lost.But for now, let‘s try to put visions of polar bears out of our heads to focus on tonight‘s Supernatural episode, “Malleus Maleficarum,” which I believe is an incantation used by the Death Eaters to restore Voldemort‘s power. Don‘t tell me you weren‘t thinking the exact same thing. Read more »
It‘s been a long wait for fans of the CW‘s Supernatural, as the series hasn‘t aired an original installment since the creepy Christmas outing in December.  The wait is finally over this Thursday, as Supernatural returns with the first of four remaining episodes.  In this week‘s "Malleus Maleficarum," the Winchester brothers travel to Massachusetts to seek out a coven of witches that has murdered two people.  Along the way they run into Ruby (Katie Cassidy), and thanks to the head witch they finally learn more about her mysterious past.To get Supernatural fans pumped up for the return of their favorite show, we have two exclusive clips from the episode.  Both of them reveal some interesting developments for the Winchesters, and they also leave us with some intriguing questions to ponder. Read more »
Supernatural‘s “Bedtime Stories” kicks off with the boys arguing over how to deal with Dean‘s deal. Sam (Jared Padalecki) is all for using their new ‘ally‘ and the Demon Shooter to confront the Crossroads Demon. Dean (Jensen Ackles) is completely against altering the deal, and redirects the conversation to their current mystery, a violent killing that resembles a werewolf attack by description. Read more »
A nun walks through a church aisle towards the pulpit at the start of tonight‘s Supernatural.  She turns off and begins loading hymn books into the seats.  A priest approaches, and escorts her towards the exit.  As they approach, a voice beckons from overhead. It‘s a guy named Andy, claiming that "God is not with us."  The priest tries to reassure the man, but he blows his own head off.Cut to the Winchester‘s.  Sam (Jared Padalecki) is putting the pieces together that the suicide is an omen while Dean (Jensen Ackles) contradicts and Bobby solemnly studies the Demon shooter.  Dean and Sam get together and head towards the site of the suicide.  They talk to the priest who confirms some signs of possession. The boys have found their mark, and the timing for the incidents synchronizes with the opening of the devil‘s gate. Read more »
Last week, Supernatural fans were shocked to discover that Ruby (Katie Cassidy) one of the controversial new female characters added for the third season, was actually a demon. Most people absolutely loved this twist, and tonight we get our first look at the other lady entering the lives of Sam and Dean, Bela (Lauren Cohan).Will the gratifying twist last week make viewers more confident that maybe creator Eric Kripke knows exactly what he‘s doing and didn‘t just add in some chicks for sex appeal? Or does the awesome demon twist make fans even more eager to find out what Bela‘s secret is, setting the bar much higher than it should be? Tonight, we‘ll find out, and we‘ll also see one of the Winchester boys get lucky. Read more »
The episode of Supernatural begins with a little girl being brought home early by her father.  Looks like his visitation did not go very well.  The mom tries to explain that it is her father‘s turn to have her, but the child is frantic.  She says he is mean and there are monsters there.Cut to dad‘s workshop later that night.  He is putting the finishing touches on an unfinished rocking horse, notes the time, and walks away to get ready for bed.  The table saw comes on twice, attracting his attention.  The second time around he falls on the saw and is quite graphically killed. Read more »
Supernatural producers had to be holding their breath last week with the introduction of the much reviled new character of Ruby (Katie Cassidy).  Fans have been pre-hating, the press has been pre-hating, and Dawn Ostroff is no doubt already sharpening the CW axe, so success was somewhat crucial.  As it was, the intro was just a teaser - albeit a wedged in teaser with a thoroughly comic snarl -  which gave fans every reason to say “We‘ll give her some more time.”  Well, episode two is upon us, and if you like spoilers, you might get a slightly sinking feeling about how Ruby plays into episode two. Read more »
Supernatural is finally back!   Tonight the Winchester‘s begin to deal with the fallout of opening the Devil‘s Gate, and a desperate landscape awaits them.  Along with resuming the action, the brothers will also meet up with the first of the new female characters, Ruby, played by Katie Cassidy.  Will she fit right in, or will fan backlash prove prophetic.  Read more »
