Shadowhunters is a new supernatural drama based on The Mortal Instruments book series by Cassandra Clare. The highly anticipated series will premiere on the Freeform network (formerly ABC Family) on January 12, 2016 at 9/8c with the episode “The Mortal Cup.”
Shadowhunters follows 18-year old Clary Fray (Katherine McNamara). When the past of her mother (Maxim Roy), comes back to haunt the Fray family, Clary learns that the world around her is not what it seems. Clary discovers that there’s a Shadow World, unseen by most humans, that includes supernatural creatures such as demons, vampires, werewolves, warlocks, and faeries.
Doctor Who is like an old family friend who visits on Christmas Day–prompting past memories, eliciting conversations, and bringing multiple generations together. The 2015 Doctor Who Christmas special, “The Husbands of River Song,” provided us moments of loss and love framed within a tale full of excitement and humor. In holiday fashion, Doctor Who reminds us that it’s the connections we have with others, whether running from a headless cyborg or sitting down for a meal together, that gives the story of our lives meaning.

Do you have a Supernatural fan in your life? Are you hunting for some great holiday gifts for them? There are a lot of fun options out there.
Supernatural gives us an intense mid-season finale in “O Brother Where Art Thou?” Sam Winchester (Jared Padalecki) convinces his brother Dean (Jensen Ackles) that they need to at least talk to the Devil, even if they don’t make a deal with him. It’s fantastic to see Mark Pellegrino back on Supernatural. Padalecki and Pellegrino, along with the outstanding set designers, transported us during the scene in Hell. The scenes between Dean and Amara (Emily Swallow) brought their own surprises. “O Brother Where Art Thou” also brought our favorite mother-and-son team back together. You can never get too much Rowena (Ruth Connell) and Crowley (Mark Sheppard). It was fun to have so much focus on several different baddies in Supernatural.
Supernatural gives us a riveting mid-season finale with “O Brother Where Art Thou?” Sam faces his biggest fear so he can figure out how to fix what he’s broken when the Darkness was released.

Sam and Dean aren’t the only ones concerned about the Darkness. Will the middle-management angels reinvigorate their warrior reputation?
