As Season 8 of Supernatural ended, Metatron (Curtis Armstrong) had committed the ultimate betrayal and expelled all of the angels from Heaven. They all fell to Earth like meteorites, on fire and losing their wings. Castiel (Misha Collins) lost his wings as well, and Metatron stole his angelic grace from him, turning him into a […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 9 — a review"
I rate each episode of Supernatural as I view it, giving each a score from zero to five stars. Looking at my spreadsheet and judging it objectively, Season 8 seems to have earned a cumulative score less than that of Season 7, which I gave a report card grade of B+. But . . .

How does that dad joke go? Why is six afraid of seven? Because seven eight nine. Get it? Seven ate nine? Lame, I know. But somehow fitting when talking about the seventh season of Supernatural. This is the season where the Leviathans are introduced into our fictional universe. Leviathans are the oldest creatures created by […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 7 — a review"
This was the first media tie-in novel based on the hit CW television show Supernatural. It was published way back in 2007 (even though I’m reading it just now, more than a decade later), and it was written by Keith R.A. DeCandido. I am familiar with DeCandido because, like me, he is a severe […]Read more "Supernatural: Nevermore, by Keith R.A. DeCandido — a book review"
Series creator Eric Kripke stepped down as showrunner after the fifth season of Supernatural. He decided to concentrate on other things, including the television series Revolution, which I liked a lot; it was cancelled way too soon. But, this show about the monster-hunting Winchester brothers continued on. For another nine or ten years, it carried […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 6 — a review"
It’s safe to say, considering the turbo-viewing that Supernatural has gotten from me this year, that I am a fan of the series. This program has reinvented itself, sometimes in small ways, each season. Season 5 was no exception. If you will recall, Season 4 ended with Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) inadvertently releasing Lucifer from […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 5 — a review"
I’m watching this more than a decade after it first aired. Even so, I guess the polite thing would be to offer a SPOILER WARNING here at the start of my review. I’ve managed to stay blissfully unaware of anything that’s happened during the entire series, so I have to assume there are others out […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 4 — a review"
There will be SPOILERS. You have been warned. The third season of Supernatural was only 16 episodes long because of the Writers Guild of America strike from November 2007 to February 2008. I have learned to appreciate shorter television seasons because it encourages tighter plotting and fewer meandering story side trips. Still, this season seems […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 3 — a review"
There are SPOILERS in this post. You have been warned. At the end of Season 1, Sam, Dean and John Winchester were involved in a serious car accident. As Season 2 opens, Dean is in a coma, possibly dying. Sam and his father John have suffered minor injuries. Dean has an out-of-body experience and a […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 2 — a review"
You would be correct in thinking that a show like Supernatural would be right in my wheelhouse. And, you would be forgiven for wondering why I never watched the series until after it had been on the air for—what?—over thirteen years? Yeah, the show premiered on the old WB network way back in September […]Read more "Supernatural: Season 1 — a review"
