As if the wait over winter hiatus hasn’t been bad enough, an eerie new promo giving a glimpse of highlights for the second half of the season makes the wait for tonight’s return of Supernatural almost unbearable (The CW, 9pm). The promo titled simply “Keep Grinding” features scary new creatures, some seemingly uncomfortable alliances, and upcoming events that make us fear for the Winchester brothers and even more so for their wayward angel, Castiel. Perhaps we can just keep hitting the replay button to make the hours pass faster until this evening!
If you haven’t seen all of Supernatural’s ninth season, you can get caught up by watching TNT next week. The network is running a marathon of Supernatural’s ninth season beginning on Monday, October 6th (10/9C).
Since the hit CW Network action series, Supernatural has entered it’s seventh season, The Leviathans have given Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) Winchester a bigger, even more dangerous enemy to battle than the brothers have faced before. These evil creatures from purgatory make Lucifer look like a choir boy in comparison!
In nerxt week’s new episode of Supernatural, titled ‘Slash Fiction’ (directed by John Showalter and written by Robbie Thompson), two of the Leviathans prove that just because you are a bloodthirsty monster out to destroy the human race doesn’t mean you can’t appreciate wearing the finest in hot looking male fashion. Which is why these two savvy dressers are wearing this season’s coveted ‘Winchester look’ and we aren’t just talking clothes here!
The two Leviathans clone the brothers Winchester; taking on their whole look from sexy head to toe. Unfortunately for the real Sam and Dean, this is more than just a fashion statement for their Leviathan look a likes; it’s a all out fashion war that puts the ‘Winchester Look” on the FBI’s most wanted list because the Leviathans, dressed in this height of hot looking male fashion, have gone on a killing spree. Now, everyone wants the originals because who could believe that ‘knock offs’ could look so perfect. Which means Sam and Dean Winchester have become the subject of a nationwide manhunt and need to drop off the grid and hide out untill they can figure out how to get rid of the Leviathan copycats who are using the ‘Winchester look” for their own nefarious purposes!
Check out the images provided by the CW Network to see more of the Leviathans wearing the hottest look in male fashions and tell us if you think they pull it off as well as the originals do. Oh and the always fashionable Crowley(Mark Sheppard) has his own agenda with the Leviathans, so check him out too.

As Supernatural comes up on its season seven premiere on the CW Network this Friday at 9PM (EST), there is a lot of positive mainstream media buzz surrounding the long running action/thriller series. According to reports, Supernatural, which stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles as the monster hunting/demon fighting brothers Winchester, is receiving more media attention than some series on bigger networks; even more buzz than Glee according to what we’ve been hearing. Supernatural has come a long way to reach that level of success and attention; like the perilous lives of the Winchesters, the road to Supernatural’s success is paved with missteps and with ‘cliffhangers’, as they often waited ‘on the bubble’ for news of renewal.
Six seasons ago, Supernatural premiered on the now defunct WB Network with two relatively unknown actors in the lead roles and having been created by screen writer Eric Kripke; whose major credit up to that point was the horror movie, Boogey Man. This combination however served to create a unique and fascinating series. Sam and Dean Winchester and their black ’67 Chevy Impala ‘muscle car’ loaded with weapons, immediately found a devoted fan following that tuned into the series every week; never losing track of it even through network and airing night changes. Those same fans led an internet campaign to promote the series and rally around it. In those early years, bloggers and online journalists were the biggest form a media promotion for Supernatural as it steadfastly made its way along the path to where it is now; a long running, successful series for Warner Brothers and The CW Network.
Series stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are now moderately well known outside of the circle of Supernatural fans and viewers; they, along with the series itself, is now capturing the attention of bigger media ‘fish’ in the pond known as entertainment reporting. More than that, Supernatural hit some major marks by scoring a cover on TV Guide by winning the magazine’s first ever ‘Fan Favorite Poll’ last year. Now, Sam & Dean Winchester and Castiel have joined the hallowed ranks of Captain Kirk, Indiana Jones and Doctor Who; all three Supernatural characters were honored in SFX Magazine as part of the ‘Top 100 Icons of Scif-Fi & Fantasy of the 21st Century’ reader’s poll making it a trifecta inclusion for the series.

I guess it’s no big surprise to know that your roving Eclipsemagazine reporter was in the Warner Brother’s Supernatural press room to get all the scoop on Supernatural season 7.
Of course the actors and producers weren’t giving out too many scoops, but what tidbits we did get are more than enough to whet the appetite for Supernatural viewers and fans alike.
We didn’t have time to get Jared to the round table I was seated at, but we did get Jensen Ackles, Sera Gamble and Ben Edlund. So sit back and listen to what this dynamic Supernatural trio had to say about Season Seven!
