Since the good folks at Holler have been doing such a great job of promoting Supernatural for the big season five premiere in the UK on Living, I’m attaching this press release they sent me just in case any Brits out there forgot or might want to actually watch Supernatural season five on a big screen TV rather than an inadequate and small monitor
(pokes at Suze). I must say, this campaign has been pretty good and I’m pleased to see the love for our show like this.
Oh, and as a bonus for those of you that actually read this and not gloss it over or just plain ignore it, the very nice person at Holler sent a link where you can download some really sweet pictures of the boys. I haven’t seen a lot of these. I have them now! http://dl.hollerdigital.co.uk/uploads/SNImages.zip
Also, here’s one very unique way to promote the show. This would have definitely caused a panic in Ohio.
The ultimate battle between good and evil
The exclusive premiere of
Supernatural brand new to LIVING
TX: Wednesday 10th February at 9pm
The fifth series of hit US drama Supernatural will premiere exclusively in the UK on LIVING, the home of paranormal drama. Already boasting a loyal UK fan base, the highly anticipated series chronicles the adventures of demon hunters Sam and Dean Winchester as they journey through small town America in a bid to rid the world of demonic forces.
Twenty-six years ago, Sam (JaredPadalecki– Gilmore Girls, Friday the 13th) and Dean (Jensen Ackles –Smallville, My Bloody Valentine 3D) Winchester lost their mother to a mysterious and demonic paranormal force. From then on, their father raised them to be soldiers, teaching them about the numerous forms of evil that exists within the darkest corners and on the back roads of America. Their father also taught them how to kill the unearthly life forms. Now, the Winchester brothers crisscross the lonely and mysterious back roads of the country in their ’67 Chevy Impala hunting down every evil supernatural force they encounter along the way.
The forth season of the paranormal drama ended on a series defining high as Sam unwittingly opened the gates of hell and freed Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino â€“ Lost). Now alongside his older brother Dean, the demon-hunting Winchester boys must face their toughest battle yet, the apocalypse.
Series five kicks off with an explosive double bill, as the brothers prepare for the inevitable; meeting the devil face to face. But at the very moment, Sam and Dean are suddenly transported onto an incredibly turbulent flight. Could this mysterious outcome be the work of angels? Sam and Deanâ€™s devil dodging may have given them more time to continue their ultimate fight, but, in order to send the definitive bad-boy back into the depths of hell, the Winchesters must find the sword of Michelangelo before Lucifer and his cohorts beat them to it.
In the second part of LIVINGâ€™s Supernatural double bill, God has gone missing and with Lucifer lapping up his new found freedom, itâ€™s up to the fallen-angel Castiel (Misha Collins â€“ 24, Nip Tuck) to search for the absent divinity. In a small Colorado town, Sam and Dean witness a chilling reality, the arrival of the first horseman of the Apocalypse.
The ultimate battle between good and evil continues on Supernatural, a UK exclusive on LIVING.
To promote series five, LIVING has created Fight the Apocalypse, an AR game which calls on Supernatural fans to mobilise their armies and join the fight against Lucifer. The AR game is based around collecting hidden symbols â€“ â€˜Enochian Sigilsâ€™ (which players must locate, photograph and send via MMS to the campaign shortcode).
It’s about five days post mortem and it’s time to revisit “Bloodlines” for what I consider to be the last time. After this, I plan on moving forward and getting heavily in the hopefully explosive last three episodes of the season. For those that didn’t read my displeasure over the episode on Twitter, I…
I just saw this come across my Variety alerts and I must say, this was a shock to me! The female lead for Jared’s next project, “Walker,” has been found and it is another CW compadre who has also spent the last several years in Vancouver. One who I’m familiar with. Lindsey Morgan, who…
The final official ratings for “My Heart Will Go On” were released later today. It’s not bad! Supernatural – 2.257 million viewers – 1.4/2 HH – 0.9/3 A18-49 – 0.9/3 A18-34 – 0.9/3 W18-34 Considering that Supernatural was on a six week layoff, came back with little hoopla and an episode that didn’t exactly scream…
