Monster hunters Sam and Dean Winchester have faced hundreds of formidable foes on their never-ending quest to rid America of evils. A powerful yellow-eyed demon. A human-eating leviathan posing as a businessman-turned-politician, and even the devil himself.
But nothing is more devastating than its latest foe: Supernatural's own writers.
As I wrote last May, Supernatural's last season was problematic at best despite high-point episodes in "Just My Imagination," "Baby" and "Red Meat." But the final minutes of the season 11 finale in which the Winchesters' beloved mother, whose death is the reason they became hunters, was resurrected; and Sam was shot by a nasty representative of the British Men of Letters, a secret organization dedicated to collecting and archiving information on the paranormal, were promising.
As teased for months, season 12 finds Sam (Jared Padalecki) in the clutches of a British psychopath named Toni Belville, and Dean (Jensen Ackles), with their mother in tow, is determined to track him down. Dean, the consummate badass, even channels his inner Liam Neeson with a "Taken" style threat to Sam's kidnappers and yet it ends with more shark abuse than bad guy thumping. How did it all go so horrifically wrong?
If you think your favorite television characters have fun in front of the camera, then you haven't seen your favorite actors' lives behind it! Instagram is for more than just duck-lipped selfies and food pics, it's also become a place for actors to offer an inside look into the controlled chaos that is making a television show and how badass it can be.
On Thursday, Jensen Ackles tweeted picture to commemorate a big moment! Supernatural, the show that struggled for years in the ratings, began production on its 250th episode the same day season 12 premiered. He writes, "Day 1 of episode 250. Here's to all those who helped make it happen. What a ride it has, and continues to be. Cheers... #spnfamily."

My mancrush this Monday is television’s best-kept secret on one of this season's best new shows, Pitch (seriously, watch this show!): Mark-Paul Gosselaar. You may or may not be aware that Zack Morris has returned to television. Thanks to his character’s beard that's authentic as it is epic, Gosselaar is nearly unrecognizable as veteran baseball player Mike Lawson.
In addition to his new facial hair, MPG shows off some serious talent both on the field and in front of the camera.
For the last five months I’ve been wishing I was blessed with the Speed Force, so I could either run into the future and dive into The Flash's “Flashpoint” arc or book it to an alternate universe so I could slap Barry Allen upside the head for even considering running back in time to save his mother’s life and thus creating an bizarrely different universe. Sadly, I just had to wait for the season 3 premiere like everyone else.
The Flash finally races onto television screens this Tuesday at 8/7c on The CW, but if you’re anything like me, you’re still craving spoilers. Here are 5 spoilers for The Flash’s third season...
