Supernatural - 9.10, 9.11, & 9.12

by Jennifer Pitt I’ve been having  a hard time sitting down to write about Supernatural post-midseason hiatus. I’m loving it and I am not, all at the same time. Maybe it’s because the mid-season hiatus is so long that I feel a disconnect between the last episode in December and the first in January. I have enjoyed each of the three episodes for their own merits, but I keep having

Best of 2013 TV - My Top Ten List

by Mieke Trudeau After the decorations have been put away and the last of the confetti swept up, there is some time for reflection as we look forward to what the New Year will bring. In TV land, the holidays mean festive specials and traditional fare but also a long hiatus for most running shows. Fortunately, the next few weeks will bring the return of our favorites and also the

Supernatural 9.09 - Holy Terror

By Stacey Gillard I’m not entirely sure what just happened. As prepared as I usually am for some kind of heartbreak from Supernatural, the devastating blow they dealt us in the mid-season finale has thrown me for a loop. Let’s rewind for a second. The angels are starting a war because each faction believes they can take on Metatron, win, and regain heaven. Meanwhile Metatron is trying to be the

Supernatural - Season 9, Episode 2 - Devil May Care

I have a confession to make. I was confused for much of this episode – I missed the scene last week when Sam was Sam and Ezekiel had assured Dean that Sam would be running the show and that he would lay low in the background. So until Ezekiel came forward and assured Dean that Sam was unconscious, I was really wondering if I had even watched last week or

Salute to Supernatural Vancouver Convention 2013 - J2 Day!

By Stacey Gillard Sunday is always the most popular day of the convention with Jared Padalecki (Sam Winchester) and Jensen Ackles (Dean Winchester) making their appearances. Many fans show up just for this one day and this year was no exception. Our J2 experience started out, as it always does, with photo opportunities with the two stars of the show, at which point we realized they were in high spirits

Fandom: A Con-Goer's Perspective

By Stacey Gillard Four years ago, fuelled by an illness and a desire to have something to look forward to, I made a decision that took me on a new and surprisingly life-altering path: I booked tickets to go to one day of the Supernatural fan convention in my home town of Vancouver. The idea of attending such an event had never appealed to me. Because of a possibly unfair

Supernatural – Torn and Frayed – The Break-up Episode

It was all about the break-ups last week. And the unhealthy but much-needed reconciliations. Sam takes off over the death of Martin Creasor and Dean’s defence of Benny for it, and for Dean tricking Sam into running to Amelia. After Amelia spies Sam peeping in her windows, she confronts him at the motel. They spend the night together and decide they will meet again two days hence: if one or

Supernatural, Season 8 - Vampires, Angels, & Loyalty

Reviewing Supernatural is such a stumbling block for me sometimes. I think it’s because I don’t always share the general sentiment, which is fuelled by a passion or a hatred I also don’t always share. I like all of the episodes, to varying degrees: some I like more (The French Mistake), some I like less (Fallen Idols – and ONLY because a certain person was in it; even that episode
