Note to Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino -you can pull your shirt down now, because Supernatural actor Jared Padalecki may have just ended your days as the ‘King of Abs’.

In Last night’s brand new episode of Supernatural, S6.03 The Third Man, Jared Padalecki gave the viewers and fans of the hit CW action series a really impressive visual image of the new leaner, stronger Sam Winchester. Oh man, what a visual that was too and it isn’t even sweeps week yet!

Naturally, Jersey Shore viewers and fans are welcome to let us know if you think Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino has nothing to worry about in regards to competition from Jared Padalecki and that ‘The Situation’ still has the best abs thing covered..or is that uncovered.

Television: Supernatural S6.01 Exile On Main Street – Romance, Bad Djinn & Annoying Relatives Makes for An Odd Mix for the Start of Supernatural Season 6

vb1be35b6

I know the Djinn in Supernatural S6.01 Exile on Main Street (written by Sera Gamble) are suppose to be the bad guys, but I wonder if they would grant this viewer a wish anyway; to send Grandpa Samuel Campbell (Mitch Pileggi) and the Campbell cousins into exile and off of Supernatural as quickly as possible (and why is Mark Campbell now a cousin when back in season one he was Mary’s brother?). I’m going to be right upfront and honest. I never thought any group of new characters introduced to Supernatural would be so immediately annoying to me as a viewer more than the Ghostfacers were. I was wrong. Gramps and the Campbell cousins have the Ghostfacers beat, hands down. Unfortunately, I’m sure that we have a lot more to see of the Campbell clan in episodes to come. Supernatural has been filming since late July and there is no magic wand or handy good Djinn to make the Campbell crew disappear from those episodes. So the best I, as a viewer can hope for is that the storyline involving them gets good enough to make me change my mind about wanting the Campbell’s to go away.

That said, and my immediate adverse reactions to them aside, there are some interesting questions surrounding the decision to bring these characters into Supernatural for season six. As I was watching this part of the story unfold in S6.01 Exile on Main Street, it left me wondering if this wasn’t somehow a loop back to the pre-writer’s strike part of Supernatural season three. Back before the season got shortened and Supernatural, like all the other scripted series affected by the writer’s strike, had to ‘cut to the chase’. Was this the direction they were headed in when Ruby( played in this instance by Katie Cassidy) had Sam investigating Mary Winchester’s background? I’m wondering what meeting the Campbell cousins back then would have brought forth in season three since we know that Sam was originally suppose to have saved Dean from going to hell. It seems pretty clear from S6.01 Exile on Main Street, that Grandpa and the cousins know more secrets about hunting than John Winchester did and are going to play a pivotal role in Sam Winchester’s new storyline and direction.

Television: New Supernatural Showrunner, Sera Gamble Talks Season 6 At the 2010 San Diego Comic Con

serag

The end of S5.22, Swan Song left us with Dean Winchester (Jensen Ackles) shattered down to his very soul over the loss of Sam and knowing (he thinks) where and what his brother had to go to. Left us with Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) standing outside of the place where his brother has sought out retreat and sanctuary (but not a reprieve from the pain) looking in. It left us with the question of how did Sam Winchester get out of hell?

This Friday night, September 24th at 9 PM EST, Supernatural season six premieres with S6.01 Exile on Main Street. With the apocalypse avoided, Dean and Sam Winchester have a whole new direction to go into and they will be doing it under the guidance of Sera Gamble, who also wrote the episode, as she steps into her role as the new show runner.

Sera Gamble started out as a story editor in Supernatural season one with S1.2, Wendigo and S1.3 Dead in the Water as story editor/writer. These were the first episodes to mark this talented lady’s introduction in the world of Supernatural. Like the series itself, Sera Gamble has come a long way since season one premiered back in September of 2005. Throughout the past five seasons of Supernatural, Sera Gamble has progressed from writer/story editor, to executive producer.

Eclipse Magazine got to participate in a round table interview with Sera at the 2010 San Diego Comic Con. Check out what Sera had to say about her new duties and the new direction for Sam, Dean and Supernatural.
