Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 17

“Game Night” Supernatural continues to explore the question of whether Jack still has a soul as a familiar antagonist makes an unwelcome return. The restoration of Jack’s powers countered by not knowing the extent of the consequences attached to this has been a source of intrigue over the past few episodes. Jack is being keenly…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 16

“Don’t Go In the Woods” Supernatural introduces a brand new monster and lets Jack hang around with people close to his physical age. There isn’t a lot to say about the Sam and Dean portion of the story. All in all it’s a fairly serviceable monster hunt narrative that the writers can probably pull off…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 15

“Peace of Mind” Supernatural picks up the pieces from the devastation at the end of the previous episode and explores the consequences for the characters. Last week ended with both death and rebirth. Maggie and the other Hunters were brutally killed at the hands of Michael just before Jack killed him and regained his own…

Supernatural – Season 14 Episode 14

“Ouroboros” Supernatural returns from a hiatus and settles the audience in with what appears to be a fairly standard hunt on the surface but goes off in a surprising direction.

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 11

“Damaged Goods” Supernatural returns to Nick’s quest for revenge and picks up the thread on the only option that stops Michael from destroying the world. This show has previously suffered problems when it comes to characters keeping secrets from one another. It’s something that it leaned on too heavily in the past and there are always…

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…
