Supernatural In Review- Plush

First of all, apologies for this horrifically late post. I have been absolutely deluged in work and have two sets of readers baying for my blood, so, yeah. Next week’s review should be up on time. This will come as a surprise to no-one, but I liked Plush a lot. Sheriff Donna, who I’ve loved since The Purge, is absolutely […]

Supernatural In Review- Our Little World

There’s a lot to say about this episode. Of course, it’s a contribution from the writer of The Executioner’s Song and The Werther Project, so I’m really not surprised. One very interesting thing about Season Eleven is that it’s cleaning up a lot of my grievances with past seasons- or specifically Season Seven. You all know my love affair with […]

Sam and Dean genuinely have fun during Baby, with Seger singalongs and hookups and remniscenses. Finally, this is an episode that fills in the gaps- we find out what goes on […]

Supernatural In Review- The Bad Seed

So far, the thing that’s surprised me most about this season is how funny it is. I mean, we’ve got our fourth apocalypse incoming, Dean encountered a soul-eating baby, Sam was infected with a zombie virus, Cas turned into an attack-dog. Yet the show’s here joking about mega-covens and- ahem- “Uncle Crowley“. This episode opened with Rowena and her Mega-Coven […]

Supernatural In Review- Out Of The Darkness, Into The Fire

Quite honestly I have no idea where this season’s heading. And at this stage in the show, that’s by no means a bad thing. Allow me to introduce myself: Wren Collins, shit-stirrer and Vivisecting Supernatural creator. Geek Girl Rising has kindly invited me to come review for her, so I’m afraid you’re stuck with me for the forseeable future. For […]
