Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 13

“Lebanon” Supernatural celebrates its 300th episode with a family reunion, a creepy killer ghost clown and a temporal paradox. Here we are at another Supernatural milestone. The 200th episode was unadulterated fan service in the best way. It’s hard to believe another 100 episodes have happened since then with no end in sight for the…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 12

“Prophet and Loss” Supernatural takes Dean on one last hunt before taking the eternal plunge to the bottom of the ocean as Sam tries to convince him that there is always hope. Episodes like this are awkward as they sit in-between large plot developments and the continuation of said plots. Such is the folly of…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 10

“Nihilism” Supernatural returns from hiatus to deal with Michael’s repossession of Dean and his plan to unleash his army of monsters on an unsuspecting city. I said in my last review that the budget limitations this show has would likely prevent the visualisation of Michael’s monster army attacking a city and unfortunately I was right….

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 9

“The Spear” Supernatural closes out 2018 with the return of Michael and a ticking clock before his master plan begins. Castiel was given the location of Michael last week so Sam and Dean are bursting to take advantage of that to put an end to this threat permanently. To do this they need the right…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 8

“Byzantium” Supernatural continues with the scramble to save Jack as Heaven comes under attack from the entity that runs the Empty. Last week was a really moving exploration of how people deal with the inevitable loss attached to a terminal illness. The overriding message was enjoying the time left and preparing for life without a…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 7

“Unhuman Nature” Sam, Dean and Castiel scramble desperately to find a way to save Jack when his condition worsens in the latest Supernatural. Jack has certainly made an impression in his relatively short time on the show. His presence has enabled Sam, Dean and Castiel to learn what sort of a father they would be…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 3

“The Scar” Supernatural returns Dean to his old self and picks up a thread intended to be explored in the sadly unrealised Wayward Sisters spin-off. Dean being back so soon is something I’m concerned about as there has potentially been a lot of storytelling potential lost by having Michael disappear from his body this early…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 2

“Gods and Monsters” Supernatural concentrates on developing some of the secondary characters as Michael experiments to create stronger monsters. This show started out as a roadtrip show. Sam and Dean would roll into town, deal with the supernatural threat and move onto their next job. This storytelling structure meant that there would be very little…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 1

“Stranger in a Strange Land” Supernatural returns for a 14th season that picks up where the last one ended with Dean possessed by Michael and Sam trying to pick up the pieces. Last season’s finale ended on a bleak note though viewers would be forgiven for disputing how serious Dean’s body being taken over by…

Supernatural – Season 13 Episode 23

“Let the Good Times Roll” Supernatural ends its thirteenth season with the arrival of Michael into “our” world an further exploration of the Lucifer/Jack dynamic. I mentioned last week that I had no idea what this season finale would be about and I certainly could never have predicted what would come to pass here. The…
