Supernatural: The Best Music Moments From the Road So Far
Yahoo News - 6 months
Happy birthday, Supernatural ! While the Season 12 premiere is still a few weeks away, The CW's favorite veteran of all things spooky and weird brought sexy/scary back on Sept. 13, 2005. A lot of things have changed over the years: TVs are flatter, cell phones are smarter, and the WB frog who serenaded us during commercial breaks has gone the way of Stick Stickly and Clippy the Microsoft Paperclip. RIP. These days, Jared Padalecki is more Mack Truck than string bean and Jensen Ackles is the DILFest DILF to ever DILF, proving that aging isn't always a bad thing. To celebrate the show's anniversary, we've compiled a quick and dirty list of our favorite Supernatural musical moments (in no particular order). Michigan J. Frog may have left the building, but the little show that refuses to die still throws one hell of a party. Supernatural stars discuss potential end date (and it's sooner than you think) "Don't Fear the Reaper" by Blue Oyster Cult ("Faith," Season 1, Episode 12 ) This is cla ...

'Supernatural' Season 9 Premiere Recap: Sam Faces Death, Dean Faces Angels In 'I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here'
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 9, Episode 1 of The CW's "Supernatural," titled "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here." Our long national nightmare -- summer hiatus -- is safely behind us and the Winchesters are back with a bang, bringing us a Season 9 premiere that felt confident, collected and oh-so cool, from the stunning new title card to Tahmoh Penikett's captivating performance as Sam's new "angelic pacemaker," Ezekiel. While "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here" lacked the game-changing gravitas of "In My Time of Dying" or "Lazarus Rising," it was still one of the stronger season openers to date, laying out the new status quo and resetting the chess board for an unholy war with some seriously disgruntled angels. But let's not get ahead of ourselves; the hour opened with Sam looking a little too healthy after the events of the Season 8 finale, which made a lot more sense once it was revealed that the opening scene was all a figment of Sam's comatose imagination.

'Supernatural' Premiere: Misha Collins Talks Castiel's Humanity, Sexual Prowess And Season 9 Journey
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The "Supernatural" Season 9 premiere is mere hours away, so HuffPost TV caught up with Misha Collins -- who plays newly-fallen angel Castiel in the CW hit -- for some last-minute intel on what fans can expect when the show debuts in its new 9 p.m. Tuesday timeslot. Below, we discuss Castiel's struggles with his newfound humanity, his relationship with Dean (Jensen Ackles) and Sam (Jared Padalecki), and how the virginal angel will react to sex for the first time. What would you say the driving force for Castiel's arc is in the first part of the season? Cas is obviously stripped of his powers and he's left a lowly human, and he is grappling with what that means, and whether he even wants to be an angel again. He's finding the magic in humanity, and he also feels like he was a shitty angel to start with, so he's kind of down on himself. He realizes that he caused tremendous problems and he's, in a sense, grappling with whether to retire or not ... I mean, he has done some pretty awful ...

'Supernatural' Season 9 Premiere: Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki And Bob Singer Preview 'Game Of Thrones'-Style Season
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The "Supernatural" Season 9 premiere is only a week away (Tues., Oct. 8 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW), and when we last saw the Winchester brothers, Sam (Jared Padalecki) was looking a little worse for wear after Dean (Jensen Ackles) talked him out of sacrificing his life to close the gates of Hell. According to the stars and executive producer Bob Singer, Sam's predicament will get worse before it gets better this season, leading Dean to make a decision that "he'll have to live with for some time," according to Singer. We spoke with Ackles, Padalecki and Singer at Comic-Con to find out what fans can expect from the Season 9 premiere, titled "I Think I'm Gonna Like It Here." "When the season premiere starts, Sam's in bad, bad shape, and it was a purposefully misleading finale where it's like 'oh, good, he's not gonna finish [the trials], he's not gonna die.' But then we saw something happen to Sam, we don't know what," Padalecki previewed. "We pick up and he's in worse shape, initially, ...

'Supernatural' Adds 'BSG' Alum
Huffington Post - over 3 years
"Supernatural" has cast "Battlestar Galactica" alum Tahmoh Penikett for the guest role of Ezekiel in Season 9, HuffPost TV has learned. Executive producer Jeremy Carver describes the character as "a dignified warrior angel injured in the Fall." Expect Ezekiel to make his first appearance in the Season 9 premiere on Tuesday, October 8 at 9 p.m. ET on The CW. A recent SpoilerTV report said that the role was potentially recurring, which makes sense, given Penikett's genre cache following roles in "BSG," "Dollhouse," "Mortal Kombat: Legacy" and "Continuum." At Comic-Con, Carver told HuffPost TV that the overarching theme of Season 9 is "consequences -- the decisions [the characters] made at the end of last year are really causing a tremendous amount of fall-out, and that includes Castiel [Misha Collins] as well. Those decisions are going to propel them into some even greater and deeper and scarier decisions at the beginning of this season, that are going to have far-reac ...

Details have emerged about the "Supernatural" spinoff that The CW has in the works, and it looks like fans of the long-running series could be seeing it pretty soon. At the Television Critics Association Summer 2013 press tour, The CW president Mark Pedowitz said the "Supernatural" spinoff would be set in Chicago and will be planted in the show's upcoming ninth season. Executive producers Jeremy Carver and Robert Singer told Entertainment Weekly earlier this week that the "Supernatural" spinoff is currently scheduled to be introduced to viewers as Season 9, Episode 20. Carver told EW that if The CW picks it up, the show will “explore the clashing monster and human characters," and "have main characters who are both human and monsters.” That will include,“families of monsters and families of hunters," Singer added, pointing out that the spinoff is "much more of an ensemble than 'Supernatural.'" Though Pedowitz said that he didn't think there are "any plans for [regular ...

What's dead never stays dead on The CW's "Supernatural," which means that we rarely have to say a permanent goodbye to some of our favorite characters. Now it appears that Jim Beaver's Bobby Singer is the latest beloved guest star to return to the cult hit, despite the character's powerful death in Season 7.

Laura Prudom: Learning To Let Go
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
Note: Do not read on if you have not seen Season 8, Episode 20 of The CW's "Supernatural," titled "Pac-Man Fever." After the ambitious but creatively uneven "Taxi Driver," it was great to see "Supernatural" back on track with the resonant and surprisingly poignant "Pac-Man Fever," another well-plotted hour from the consistently adept Robbie Thompson. While this episode was undoubtedly a spotlight for the fabulous Charlie (Felicia Day), "Pac-Man Fever" accomplished what the strongest episodes of any show can do: it granted the audience deeper insight into our protagonists through their interactions with a compelling supporting character. It was an undeniable treat to learn more about Charlie's backstory and why she is the way she is, but her heartfelt interactions with Dean also allowed both of them to let go of some of the fear that's been burdening them, resulting in an episode that struck an ideal balance between humor and emotional heft.

'Why She Is The Way She Is'
Huffington Post - almost 4 years
The April 24 episode of "Supernatural" sees the return of fan-favorite character Charlie, played by equally beloved geek icon Felicia Day. The Huffington Post recently talked to Day to find out what's in store for Charlie in the video game-centric "Pac Man Fever." The episode, Day promises, will give us plenty of new insight into Charlie, as well as an explanation for "why she is the way she is." And, naturally, there will be plenty of gaming shout-outs and pop culture nods, as we've come to expect from the excellent Robbie Thompson, who penned the episode. Read on for more from Day, including how she felt about exploring the Winchesters' new lair, how Dean (Jensen Ackles) attempts to train Charlie to be a hunter, which games she plays in her downtime and much more. How does Charlie react to being in the awesome Men of Letters bunker? It must be like nerd heaven for her. I think me personally -- and Charlie as a character -- walked into that room and was awestruck. ...
