After seeing the previews for “There’s No Place Like Home,” we were pretty excited Charlie Bradbury would be returning to Supernatural. We love Felicia Day, who plays Charlie, and were eager to see what happened to Charlie after she went to Oz with Dorothy in “Slumber Party” (S09E04). Yet, our first glimpse of Charlie is of her torturing a man. Say it ain’t so, Charlie!
“Quid Pro Quo,” the tenth episode of Constantine, is loosely based on the events of the Hellblazer graphic novel All His Engines (2005) by Mike Carey and Leonardo Marco. It also finally tells the story of Chas and his healing powers.

Unless you live in a internet-free zone, you are probably familiar with the ‘web series’ format of storytelling. There are lots of great web series out there, but we have a special place in our hearts for supernatural web series, especially if they are funny. It’s such a great medium, we wanted to share some of the best supernatural web series we have seen of late. The proliferation of web series on the internet has brought amazing writers, actors, and filmmakers to the tiny screen to showcase their talents. Some get their start on the web, while others take to cyberspace later in their careers when they realize what a relevant and exciting platform it is. The web series approach is a great vehicle for comic series in particular. We love nothing more than a comedy series with a paranormal theme. Check out these three hilarious web series about the supernatural. Continue reading

The midseason break left us clamoring for the return of Supernatural to find out what the rest of Season 10 has in store for us. “The Hunter Games” brings us back to the stories we visited in “What we Left Behind,” which are: What the hell is the Mark of Cain doing to Dean? What is Cas going to do about Claire? What does Rowena want, and what will Crowley do about it? We don’t get all the answers, but we do get to dig in to a very satisfying episode of Supernatural.
Were you in San Francisco for the “Salute to Supernatural” convention last weekend? We were! Connect with us in the comments and tell us what you thought (spoiler alert: we loved it!).
Conventions showcasing TV shows, comic books, movies, anime, literature, games, and other media are becoming increasingly popular. There are all kinds of conventions out there, some of which may end up on your bucket list. Conventions provide fans with insider knowledge, behind-the-scenes access to creative talent, and connections with other fans. Conventions such as San Diego’s Comic-Con have become fairly mainstream since Comic-Con started out as a comic book convention in 1970 and Star Trek fans organized their own first convention in 1972. Creation Entertainment, which organizes conventions for Supernatural as well as Star Trek, Stargate, Xena: Warrior Princess, The Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf, and others, was founded in 1971. Creation held its first “Salute to Supernatural” in Chicago in 2007.
