Book Review: Supernatural: The Unholy Cause by Joe Schreiber

As all Supernatural fans know (or as all fans of any TV show, for that matter), hiatuses can be quite difficult to get through, especially when Kripke is at the helm and cliffhangers are regular occurrences. Distractions are essential. Some fans take to screencapping all episodes with such minutia that flipping through them fast enough… Read More Book Review: Supernatural: The Unholy Cause by Joe Schreiber

Halloween on Sahar’s Blog: Fans’ Real Love for The X-Files, Fringe, and Supernatural

Let’s be honest: while fans love the scare factor in The X-Files, the real reason that they keep coming has nothing to do with the paranormal.  The keep coming for the same two reasons fans of Fringe and Supernatural return: the relationship between the main characters and the deeper concepts each show touches on. In… Read More Halloween on Sahar’s Blog: Fans’ Real Love for The X-Files, Fringe, and Supernatural

TV Review: Supernatural, Season 5, Episode 16: Dark Side of the Moon

Supernatural continues its meticulous deconstruction of Dean in the 16th episode of its fifth season, “Dark Side of the Moon”. The episode’s plot is relatively simple: Sam and Dean are killed by hunters angry at Sam starting the Apocalypse. In Heaven, Sam and Dean are told by Castiel to look for Joshua, an angel who… Read More TV Review: Supernatural, Season 5, Episode 16: Dark Side of the Moon

TV Review: Supernatural, Season 5, Episode 14: My Bloody Valentine

Supernatural’s last episode before its six-week hiatus was nothing short of underwhelming. Don’t get me wrong; the episode was, in itself, fantastic. It wasn’t just a filler; it brought in another Apocalypse-related figure, i.e. our second Horseman of the Apocalypse, Famine. However, only die-hard fans will be left wanting more, and anxiously counting down the… Read More TV Review: Supernatural, Season 5, Episode 14: My Bloody Valentine

Reflecting on Reflection: How to Make the Good even Better

Just like with anything else, reflection is an instrument that has to be used with great wisdom, for it can both fulfill its higher purpose, or lead us astray. Need I point out that the road to hell is paved with good intentions? Our purpose in life is to know and worship God, which means… Read More Reflecting on Reflection: How to Make the Good even Better

TV Review: Supernatural, Season 5, Episode 18: Point of No Return

For an episode with a doomsday-sounding title, “Point of No Return” was quite uplifting, giving hope to fans that things are turning, but for the better. The title is all the more apt that this is Supernatural’s 100th episode. Jeremy Carver, who wrote it, did an awesome job (as always), and I’m happy he didn’t… Read More TV Review: Supernatural, Season 5, Episode 18: Point of No Return

TV Review: Supernatural Season 5, Episode 17: 99 Problems

Oh. My. God. Those were the words that rang in my head over and over as the closing credits of Supernatural’s episode “99 Problems” rolled on my screen. What a poignant ending. If he wasn’t already, this is probably the episode that forever endeared Dean Winchester to all Supernatural fans. Dean is frantically driving the… Read More TV Review: Supernatural Season 5, Episode 17: 99 Problems

TV Review: Supernatural, Season 5, Episode 15: Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid

This week, Supernatural, next week, Fringe; the spring 2010 hellatus is finally over and the last stretch before the end of this TV season has started. Hurrah! Supernatural is back in fine form, with yet another well-written episode. It made me laugh, it grossed me out, and it made me want to reach into the… Read More TV Review: Supernatural, Season 5, Episode 15: Dead Men Don’t Wear Plaid
