'Supernatural' Preview: 5 Reasons Why You Can't Miss Friday's Meta-Filled Episode

by Laura Prudom, posted Feb 23rd 2011 4:30PM
Jensen Ackles and Jared PadaleckiFew shows are quite as willing to poke fun at themselves as the CW's 'Supernatural,' which has tackled everything from turning its characters into the heroes of a pulpy (and little-read) book series, to sending them to a spooky fan convention.

But after six seasons of self-referential madness, writer Ben Edlund seems to have decided that he's sick of "scratching" at the fourth wall, and would rather take a sledgehammer to it instead.

What results is 'The French Mistake,' one of the most surreal, unpredictable and undeniably hilarious episodes that the show has ever produced -- and if you've seen 'Changing Channels' or 'Tall Tales,' you know that's quite a feat.

TV Squad was lucky enough to see an advanced screener of this Friday's meta-tastic episode, and we've somehow managed to whittle down an hour of memorable moments into a list of five reasons why this episode is not to be missed. Proceed with caution, though; there are mild spoilers ahead.

Scoop from the 'Supernatural' Set: Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles Talk Souls and Secrecy

by Laura Prudom, posted Nov 12th 2010 3:40PM
Jared Padalecki and Jensen AcklesIt's tough being a Winchester; no matter how careful you are, or how white your picket fence is -- chances are you're going to get bitten by vampires, mauled by werewolves, impersonated by shapeshifters, possessed by demons and sent to hell more times than you can count.

The good news is, even if you take a trip to the fiery pit downstairs, it's a safe bet that you won't stay there for long. The bad news is, depending on who drags you out of the frying pan, you might come back missing a few ... essentials.

Such is the case for poor Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) who found himself unceremoniously resurrected without his soul by the demon Crowley (Mark Sheppard) -- a fairly major oversight, we must say, which has rendered Sam more than a little scary this season.

'Supernatural' Spoilers: Misha Collins on Showdowns, Jumping the Shark and Getting Laid

by Laura Prudom, posted Nov 5th 2010 11:55AM
Misha CollinsWe're seriously starting to wonder whether Misha Collins might actually possess some manner of angelic superpowers.

Not only is he juggling a recurring role on 'Supernatural' with being a new father, he also somehow found time to hop across the pond and appear at Rogue Events' Asylum convention in the United Kingdom over Halloween weekend, entertaining over 600 'Supernatural' fans along with other popular guest stars like Mark Sheppard and Aldis Hodge.

Since we know that Collins is always good for a spoiler or two, we couldn't miss the opportunity to sit down with him and try to extract a little information about what's coming up for his heavenly character, Castiel, as season 6 nears its halfway point.

Proceed with caution -- spoilers ahead!

EXCLUSIVE! Misha Collins Talks 'Supernatural' Spoilers and Never-Before-Seen Photo

Misha CollinsLast week, TV Squad caught up with 'Supernatural' star Misha Collins to talk about his new charity, Random Acts, a collective of fans, volunteers and all-around good people who are trying to make the world a better place.

Since then, Collins has successfully completed his marathon, running a total of 83 kilometers (a staggering 52 miles) to raise money for Random Acts' various projects, including helping those affected by the recent disasters in Haiti and Pakistan. The effort has currently amassed over $75,000, with the final total expected to be closer to $100,000.

But when Collins isn't saving the world, he has a day job to go back to, playing the role of the angel Castiel on 'Supernatural,' and when we last spoke at Creation Entertainment's Salute to Supernatural convention, we couldn't resist grabbing some spoilers from everyone's favorite heavenly helper on what we can expect from the new season (premiering Sept. 24 at 9PM on the CW).

Join us after the jump for a spoilery video and an exclusive, never before seen photo of Collins that you won't find anywhere else.

EXCLUSIVE! CW Stars Sophia Bush and Misha Collins Give Back

by Laura Prudom, posted Aug 31st 2010 10:45AM
Sophia BushEveryone loves an underdog -- and in terms of ratings, few can deny that The CW often seems like a scrappy featherweight trapped in the primetime ring with four heavy-hitters.

But when it comes to making a difference in the lives of fans and the public at large, (even those who are too impoverished to own a television), it seems as though the CW network might just be the undisputed heavyweight champion. (We're done with the boxing metaphors now, we promise.)

Whether it's raising money for the clean-up in the Gulf following BP's catastrophic oil spill, finding homes for abandoned dogs, aiding in the rebuilding of New Orleans in the wake of Hurricane Katrina or helping orphans in Haiti, the passion and dedication of the CW's stars is tireless and undeniably inspiring.

Over the weekend, TV Squad caught up with Sophia Bush of 'One Tree Hill' and 'Supernatural' star Misha Collins to discuss their latest charitable projects and give advice to anyone who wants to help change the world, one random act of kindness at a time.

Jane After Dark: 'Supernatural' Season Five - Is the Apocalypse Happening or What?!

Supernatural, Paris Hilton, Jared Padalecki, Jensen Ackles
I've been watching 'Supernatural' for Jane After Dark, my weekly column chronicling all the TV shows I watch on DVD into the wee hours. I'm now up to season five, episode 11, 'Sam, Interrupted,' and frankly, this season's been a little slow going.

After the dark powers that gripped the Winchester boys in season four, it almost seems like the writers have forgotten all about the fact that Sam unleashed Lucifer onto the world in the season four finale. You would think that once the Devil had escaped from the depths of Hell, he'd be running roughshod over the planet.

Jane After Dark: 'Supernatural' - Doesn't Anyone Stay Dead on This Show?

Supernatural, In the Beginning
Seriously, doesn't anyone stay dead on 'Supernatural'? Not that I'm complaining. I was devastated at the end of season three when Dean was attacked by the hell hound and dragged off to hell, and pretty excited when he was yanked back to life. I kept waiting for some big reveal that his resurrection was all a dream or alternate universe or something, but after meeting the angel Castiel, I'm convinced that Dean is back for real.

It's interesting. I kept wondering why Dean had gone to hell rather than heaven, because he's a good person doing good things in the world, so why wouldn't he go to heaven? On the other hand, Dean didn't believe in heaven or God or angels up to this point, so maybe that would automatically send him to hell? Nah, I'm not buying that.

Misha Collins and Julie McNiven Talk 'Supernatural' Spoilers and Spin-Offs

by Laura Prudom, posted Dec 3rd 2009 3:24PM
We're only two weeks into 'Supernatural's' winter hiatus and many self-confessed Super-fans are already feeling separation anxiety; lucky for you, Inside TV has an exclusive spoiler fix to whet your appetites before the Winchesters make their ass-kicking return in an all-new episode on Jan. 21.

We recently caught up with 'Supernatural's' most heavenly creatures, Misha Collins and Julie McNiven, to find out what we can expect from their angelic alter-egos next year. Fans of Collins' enigmatic Castiel shouldn't get too excited, though; heaven's latest dropout can't tell us too much about the first two episodes after hiatus -- he isn't in either of them!

Kripke and the producers spilled juicy teasers about Supernatural all over San Diego

Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles

Creator Erik Kripke, and producers Ben Edlund and Sera Gamble talked a lot about Supernatural at Comic-Con on Sunday. The show is entering the fifth chapter in Kripke's five year vision. But check out this quote from the show's creator: "We're not going to stretch this one out past its expiration, we're not going to drag this one into a place it isn't. We're going to tell this one the way it's supposed to be told, and it's going to end, but another story can begin."

Imagine that. No pressure from the network to stretch it out and stall and add Nikki and Paulo to distract the audience for awhile. Letting a creator's vision play out as intended? How very ... modern of them. Less exciting is that Kripke was, well, cryptic as to whether or not he'd stay on for a sixth season should the show return; and it will.

Are Supernatural fans ruining the show?

by Hemal Jhaveri, posted May 8th 2009 12:02PM

Being a fan of a "cult" show is a mixed blessing. On the one hand, cult fans are a special breed that live and die with the show. Shows that manage to shore up a devoted (or rabid) fan base can expect to stick around for a decent amount of time. On the other hand, these fans are notoriously finicky and can turn on you in an instant.

I imagine that Supernatural creator Eric Kripke has to feel somewhat the same way. While it's the base that's kept him at the CW for the past four seasons, he must realize what a demanding, petulant and critical bunch we are. Supernatural fans haven't yet reached the Trekkie level, but they seem to have an endless stream of complaints. So, as we approach the season finale of Supernatural, I have to wonder, do fans have too much of a say in what's going on with the series?

TV Squad Ten: New supporting characters who helped make their series better

by Isabelle Carreau, posted Apr 1st 2009 2:03PM
Grey's Anatomy
Lead characters are extremely important for TV series, as they are the basis of the shows' storylines. However, to make said lead characters shine and make the storylines interesting, supporting characters must be introduced. Sometimes, those characters have a major impact on a series and even end up becoming leads. Just see how Ben Linus on Lost was set to appear in a few episodes, but ended up being so helpful to the storyline and loved (or hated) by the fans that he became an integral part of the series and is now a major player on the show.

That compelled me to make a list of new supporting characters who helped make their series better this season. Since my list only has 10 items and because I don't watch all current TV series, I will have missed tons of supporting characters, so feel free to add to the list by commenting below. However, note that I restricted my list to supporting characters that were introduced THIS season. So the Ben Linuses of the TV world are not on the list.
