TV ReCap: Continuity is a Good Thing – Commentary on Supernatural S5.11 Sam, Interrupted


Before we go into why I think continuity is a good thing in last week’s episode of the hit CW Network series Supernatural, let’s take a look at a little continuity in real life involving Supernatural fandom. We all know that Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles are the two hot lead actors who play Sam and Dean Winchester on Supernatural. We know that fans are always looking for opportunities to talk to and interact with the guys and they keep hoping that one of the plethora of social networking sites that pop up under the actor’s names really does belong to them. This usually prompts one or both of the actors to make statements at conventions that they do not have Myspace, Facebook or Twitter accounts. Their friends and co-workers who do have these kinds of accounts have repeatedly stated that the guys do not have them.

The continuity of this denial has never been broken and, unfortunately the fakes also continue to pop up and one in particular on Twitter became more than just an annoyance. This prompted Clif Kosterman, the bodyguard for Ackles and Padalecki to join twitter in an attempt to oust the fakers. It has also prompted the two Supernatural leads to make a video stating once more that they do not have any social networking sites and asking fans to not be fooled by imposters.

TV Recap: Change is Not Always Welcome – A Commentary on Supernatural 5.06 I Believe the Children Are Our Future


Yes we start off with the usual drill, but have to say there is not a whole lot of big things going on around the fandom to talk about this time around. So I’ll focus a bit on some follow up on some things brought up in last week’s recap.

Last week I mentioned that a statement was put out by a reliable source, One Tree Hill actress Danneel Harris, that neither Jensen Ackles nor Jared Padalecki has twitter accounts. I guess the memo didn’t reach whoever is attempting to impersonate Jared Padalecki on Twitter. However @PadaleckiJared was supremely outed when on Saturday, October 13th they posted a twitter saying that they had to ‘take care of a problem at the studio’. Now normally this might sound just legit enough to fool the unsuspecting fan who wants to believe that this is the real Jared Padalecki, but for one thing. Supernatural fans knew what the faker obviously didn’t, that the studio in Canada was closed that weekend due to the Canadian Thanksgiving Holiday and that the real Jared Padalecki was photographed in the Vancouver airport on that Saturday getting ready to catch a flight out to enjoy his time off. The imposter hasn’t yet been back to post to their twitter account since being massively outed by those who don’t take kindly to seeing others being tricked by a faker.

The petition to get more promotion for Supernatural that was mentioned last week is still going strong over at Supernatural-web, but that is an issue in itself that I could devote an entire article to addressing. Speaking of petitions, over on Facebook some fans have started a petition to get Clif Kosterman to be considered as a guest for upcoming Supernatural conventions after Clif jokingly mentioned that he guessed there wasn’t any room on a convention guest list for him as he never seemed to get invited. As mentioned in last week’s recap, Clif played the role of the prisoner Tiny in the S2.19 episode Folsom Prison Blues and has since become bodyguard for series leads Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki. I would love to see Clif be a guest at conventions but I have one really important question to put forth about that: If Clif attends a convention as a headlining guest, does that mean that Ackles and Padalecki would come along to be his bodyguards? I mean after all turn about is fair play right? Ok guess not.

On to the recap!

TV Recap: Not a Lot of Loving It Going On Here–Commentary on Supernatural Episode 5.05 Fallen Idols


Supernatural episode 5.05 Fallen Idols aired this last Thursday on the CW Network and as I said in my sneak peek posting, it is the episode with the most controversial guest star the series has ever had: Paris Hilton. Yet in watching Fallen Idols, for this reviewer, her presence as a guest star wasn’t the most controversial thing to come out of the episode. I had a lot of issues with the interactions between Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles).

However before I go into my review of Supernatural episode 5.05 Fallen Idols, lets take the usual look around the fandom first and see what’s been going on.

There seems to be a mixed perception between some fans of the hit series and the CW Network of how well Supernatural season 5 is doing. The CW Network is still ecstatic about the veteran action series’ overall performance coupled with its new lead in show, The Vampire Diaries. The CW released the following stats on Friday October 9th, which was the day after the airing of Fallen Idols:

VAMPIRE DIARIES and SUPERNATURAL Make It Another Killer Thursday For The CW With Double-Digit Year-To-Year Growth Across Key Demos SUPERNATURAL Up Year-To-Year in Adults and Women 18-34. SUPERNATURAL grew 8% year-to-year in both adults 18-34 (1.4/4) and women 18-34 (1.3/3).

Sounds like a good thing to them, but Brian over at supernatural-web.net seems to think otherwise and published this statement urging fans and viewers to take action and sign a petition.

“We’re sick and tired of the way, our favorite TV-Show, Supernatural is being treated. We get the minimum of promotion and losing viewers every week. Instead of taking chances and finally starting some promotion TheCW keeps on promoting shows, which don’t seem to have a future. If you want Supernatural to get its deserved ratings, please sign up.”

I would love to hear from Supernatural viewers and fans on this concept that Brian has put forth about the promotion of Supernatural. Do you agree or disagree with the lack of promotion. Do you think a petition is the way to go?
