TV Guide Previews “I Know What You Did Last Summer” with guest actress Julie McNiven

Posted in interview, news on November 13, 2008 by Kel

Finally, after weeks of speculation and sometimes-marginalization of the summer after Dean’s death, we get to find out what happened to Sam while Dean was caught in Hell for four months. In “I Know What You Did Last Summer”–a two-part episode which will end with next week’s mid-season finale (titled “Hell’s Angels, although that could change prior to airing, scheduled to air on November 20th.), we finally get answers.

McNiven appears in both tonight’s episode and next week’s as Anna, a woman who can hear the whisperings of both the demons and the angels. McNiven reveals that her character ends up “…stuck in the middle of a horrible situation” with Sam and Dean, and that both brothers work diligently to get her–and themselves–out of it. Like all other guest stars, Julie confirms that Jared and Jensen are dreams to work with. “Absolutely – both complete gentlemen! I had such fun working with them, and with Genevieve, too,” she says. “The boys were hilarious. They can go from joking around to right in a scene, but I get the giggles, so I literally had to bite my cheek and tongue to focus.”

Jared’s F13 Experience

Jared Padalecki

Jared Padalecki

Speaking to FEARnet about his upcoming project, the Friday the 13th remake, Padalecki reveals his favorite kill, his favorite part of the shoot, and why he won’t take his clothes off for the camera!

“I mean the cast is I can say – I’ve been doing this a while – and I can say, without a doubt, that I’m gonna keep in touch with people that I’ve met on this movie. That’s nice to be able to say, because usually it’s like summer camp “Hey, see ya later!” And then you don’t call ‘em. But here it’s like I can’t wait to hang out with them again,” he says about the cast. He names castmates Danielle Panabaker, Derek Mears, and Amanda Righetti amongst the friends he’s made and intends to “hang out” with.

In talking about his favorite kill, Padalecki is very precise, giving a very good spoiler for the movie. I won’t post it here, but you can find it in the link. I can say that it is a very classic Jason kill, and it sounds amazing. About the kill itself, he says, “And that’s really the point in the movie where everything comes to a head and just explodes. And after that everything’s so fast paced and moving so quickly and everything’s so hectic and that’s when the audience is really gonna be on the edge of their seats. Not like they wouldn’t before but that’s when the break line – breaks, and it’s full speed ahead for the rest of the movie.”

Supernatural’s Guest Star Coup

Posted in news, spoilers on October 30, 2008 by Kel

Okay, so, maybe it’s not a coup for any of you, but it is to me.



But seeing this guy in the preview for next week’s episode, “Wishville,” had me screaming for joy.

One step closer to the Chin, baby. One step closer to the chin.

Robert Wisdom (The Wire, Prison Break) has landed on Supernatural as the (arch)angel Uriel, companion and not-quite-friend of Supernatural‘s current angel, Castiel (Misha Collins.)

Speaking to TV Guide, Wisdom describes Uriel (and Castiel) as “…kind of a mix between characters from the Addams Family realm and The Odd Couple. We like each other but we aren’t real close.” He also defends his character against claims of being trigger-happy, saying instead that Uriel is “eager” to do God’s will, and “If that means smiting a whole city, he has to do it.”

Historically, Uriel has been the fourth Archangel, filling out the quartet with Michael, Gabriel, and Raphael. More on Uriel can be found here.

You Can’t Get More Mainstream Than This

Posted in news on October 27, 2008 by Kel

In terms of publicity and getting noticed, Supernatural has always been the underdog. But, going into it’s fourth year now, that might be about to change.

Entertainment magazines like TV Guide and Entertainment Weekly do pretty fair online coverage, with rare print blurbs to supplement it. Newspaper coverage is equally as rare, but newspaper blogs have occasionally highlighted the show and everything it has to offer.

Now, though, other outlets are finally getting into the party. Namely, The New York Post. The Post‘s title, Hell-Oween, is a sly reference to the upcoming Halloween episode, but the article itself is a brief rundown of what makes Supernatural so popular, a quote or three from series lead Jared Padalecki, and even a few nudges at the CW for ignoring the show. (“On the network that has this year been pushing two teen soap operas – “Gossip Girl” and “90210” – hard enough to break a wrist, “Supernatural” is the show that has attracted perhaps the most fanatical fans.” is my favorite.)

Commenting the article requires registration or logging in, but it just might be worth it to show that Supernatural fans appreciate the coverage and to encourage others that the show is worth a little attention.

Fan Charity Drives Support Supernatural

Posted in fan-related activities, news on October 25, 2008 by Kel

While it is no surprise that the fans of Supernatural are dedicated, and even less surprising that said fans are outspoken and diverse, it might surprise you to know that when the chips are down, fans easily unite for a good cause.

A well-timed SF Universe article by guest poster Liana Beck reminds the Supernatural fandom at large of all the good that has been done, as well as highlighting to the rest of the world just how much support this show has.

Mentioning several websites and dollar amounts nearing $10,000, Ms. Beck manages to bring the fandom’s best foot forward while reminding all of us how important it is that we all stay united to make sure the show we love stays on the air for us to love.

Eric Kripke Addresses Fan Concerns

Posted in interview, news on October 24, 2008 by Kel

And no, it’s not about the controversy you’re thinking of.

Apparently, Mr. Kripke finds it necessary to reassure the world that Dean is not a dick.

Like we didn’t already know that. How about addressing the BIG controversies, Mr. Kripke? Like what’s going on with Sam and Ruby, if they’re doing the nasty, and why he’s been shoved to the back burner for two whole seasons now?

But, I won’t complain. At least he’s letting us know that he’s listening! All in all, the Krip still gets a thumbs-up from me!
