“How am I then a villain?”: Crowley as Supernatural’s Shakespearean Antagonist (Part One of Four)

Part One: Seasons Five and Six “Cannot be ill, cannot be good.” – Macbeth, Act I, Scene 3 Villains and heroes share one important trait – they often act to build a better world, to right perceived wrongs, to bring justice to an unjust system. They diverge, many times, in motivation. Heroes tend to act from a…

Threads! Supernatural 12.15 “Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell”

The Morning After I thoroughly enjoyed “Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell”. Happily, I was totally engrossed in the Sam and Dean portion of the story. The hellhound special effects, the mystery surrounding the hound’s target, then the intended victim’s claim to not have sold her soul all kept me intrigued. Dean and Crowley’s conversations and…

Let’s Speculate: Supernatural 12.15 “Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell”

Hellhounds!  Angels on the hunt!  Men of Letters drama!    This is your friendly neighborhood WFB admin filling in this week for Bookdal, who was thankfully spared from having to recap this glacially paced, completely awkward, totally filler episode.  I’ve tried to keep tonights spec to the recap, but if you see small outbursts here…

Alice’s Review: Supernatural 12.13 – “Family Feud” aka The Mediocrity Strikes Back

Thoughts on Supernatural 12.13: “Family Feud”

This was a pretty successful, general episode. Nothing overtly flashy while also addressing some lingering issues and hopefully propelling the plot forward into the final, dramatic pieces of the season. It wasn’t perfect, but it was decent. Parenting runs amok of emotions and Lucifer casts shadows over everyone; in the end it comes down to…

Alice’s Review: Supernatural 12.12 – “Stuck in the Middle (With You)” aka Tarantino Meets SPN Verse

I’m going to tell you why I loved this episode so much.  No doubt, “Stuck in the Middle (With You)” was a full blown homage to filmmaker Quentin Tarantino and that makes me very happy.  I love this man’s films and got every shout out they were going for.  For the most part, the effort…

The Morning After Well that was a unique and surprisingly creative episode! “Stuck in the Middle (with you)” kept the audience guessing from the first seconds in the diner to the last second when red eyes glared at us out of the darkness! The script, the direction, even the music, all worked together to keep…
