TV Surveillance Podcast Episode 6 — Lincoln Lee’s Glasses are Ridiculous

In the sixth episode of the TV Surveillance Podcast, Tim Bavlnka joins host Cory Barker for a discussion of the very young seasons of Supernatural and Fringe. The two talk about why season seven of Supernatural is on the path to success and why season four of Fringe feels a lot like the exact opposite of that. Also: You can now subscribe to the … Continue reading TV Surveillance Podcast Episode 6 — Lincoln Lee’s Glasses are Ridiculous

Review: Supernatural, “Hello, Cruel World”

Sorry for the delay in this review folks. I’ll probably not be talking about Supernatural until Monday this season and I’m still not sure how often I’ll be able to write something at all. Fridays and the weekend are tough. Holy crap. “Hello, Cruel World” is not only the best second episode in Supernatural’s run, … Continue reading Review: Supernatural, “Hello, Cruel World”

Season Premiere review — Supernatural, “Meet the New Boss”

I'm guessing many of you had the same reaction to season six of Supernatural that I did: A boatload of great ideas, none of them executed particularly well. There a number of possible reasons for this. With a new showrunner always comes change and in the case of Sera Gamble's promotion before last season, it meant … Continue reading Season Premiere review — Supernatural, “Meet the New Boss”

From Route 666 to The Apocalypse: Ranking the episodes of Supernatural, Episodes 25-1

Throughout its six years on the air, Supernatural has had a substantial amount of good-to-great episodes, which made this list difficult to compile. However, like any long-running series, Supernatural has aired its fair share of missteps, problem children and downright horrible episodes. These things happen. Over the course of the next few weeks, I’ll be discussing all the series’ … Continue reading From Route 666 to The Apocalypse: Ranking the episodes of Supernatural, Episodes 25-1

Season Finale — Supernatural, “Let It Bleed” and “The Man Who Knew Too Much”

Sorry for the delay with this review folks. I had a super-busy weekend and just watched these episodes last night. It was difficult to wait, but ultimately, I think I would say it was worth it. From the very first episode, this season of Supernatural has been a disjointed mess. If you go back through some … Continue reading Season Finale — Supernatural, “Let It Bleed” and “The Man Who Knew Too Much”

Supernatural, “All Dogs Go to Heaven”

After last week's exposition-heavy, but still great episode, Supernatural moved forward with its new equilibrium status in "All Dogs Go to Heaven," with Sam and Dean working specifically for Crowley and hating it, while continuing to figure out just what the hell Sam actually is (or is not) at the moment. "Dogs" isn't an awful … Continue reading Supernatural, “All Dogs Go to Heaven”

Supernatural, “Weekend At Bobby’s”

I'll be the first to admit that I'm a sucker for the "Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead" storytelling approach that sees individual episodes shift the focus away from the usual main characters and onto the supporting players we're certainly familiar with, but don't always get to watch in action on their own.
