In primetime television's second homage to The X-Files this week, Dean and Sam make like Mulder and Scully as they investigate what looks to be a series of alien abductions. Well, the real truth is out there. Actually, it's so far out there it makes UFO sightings seem like your normal, everyday occurrence. The Winchester brothers enter the world of fairies.
Ben Edlund is responsible for "Clap Your Hands if You Believe" and I don't know about you, but an Edlund-style episode is exactly what the doctor ordered. Don't get me wrong, I love this season, but it can be seriously dark and depressing at times. There's soulless Sam and loveless Dean (he's lost Lisa, Ben and Old Sam). So this tale of fairies (Tinkerbell) and Starman (Sam) and Jiminy Cricket (Dean) has so many funny one-liners and humorous situations that at one point I kept laughing through an entire commercial break.
After five seasons playing Supernatural's cocky demon hunter Dean Winchester, Jensen Ackles tries out his directing talents on this week's episode, "Weekend at Bobby's" (airing Friday at 9/8c on The CW).
"I'd been studying the ...
Supernatural just wouldn't be the same demon-hunting show if Sam (Jared Padalecki) really died after that fall into hell. The man he is now is a stark contrast to what we've seen over the last five seasons.
"I come back much less lovey-dovey," says Padalecki, "and more like, 'All right. I've been to hell a couple times, I've been to heaven. I've died, I've come back, I've done this, and I've done that. [Now] Sam's more no bullsh--."
It's the moment Supernatural fans have been waiting for all season: Lucifer (Mark Pellegrino) is about to throw down with pretty much everyone. TVGuide.com caught up with Pellegrino, who says Lucifer is quite the sympathetic character. (Um, what about that whole wanting to destroy all of mankind thing?) The 45-year-old actor also gave us the details on Lucifer's journey to the apocalypse as well as the similarities between Lucifer and his character on Lost, Jacob...
The 100th episode of Supernatural features Dean at rock bottom. I thought he had gotten there well before now, but I was wrong. Does Dean at rock bottom include giving into his destiny? Meanwhile, Sam's job is to do whatever he can to prevent that from happening including leaning on Cas. The rebel angel goes all badass on us more than once and he makes a great big sacrifice. Plus, Adam becomes the third Winchester sibling to die and come back to life. Resurrection is a good family trait to share, isn't it?
This is the only portion of the episode that disappointed me. It is a straight up recap when it should have been one of the classic rock recaps we've come to know and love. I'm sure it all came down to budget, but I still had high hopes for a "Carry On Wayward Son" comeback or a different kickass old school ditty to rock the beginning of the episode. Have you guys seen the recent YouTube video that features the 99 episodes in just over one minute? So awesome. I just wish The Powers That Be (TPTB) would have done something similar. But hey, if this is my only disappointment than you guys have to know "Point of No Return" is a killer Supernatural in just about every way.

Senior editors Matt Mitovich, Mickey O'Connor and Tim Molloy answer your questions ... this week a couple of days early, for the holidays. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I heard a rumor that Sara Ramirez has been offered a TV show in which she will star. While I question the reliability of the source, I hope this is true. She is a talented actress who does not get any recognition or decent writing for her Grey's Anatomy character. — Michelle
MATT: "Que sera, Sara?" you ask? Ramirez's rep tells the Buzz, "We haven't heard that rumor" about her being courted for a series of her own. In the meantime, I'm told that Grey's' bi-curious Callie will pick up where she and Erica left off, this time with the pediatric surgeon being played by Jessica Capshaw beginning Jan. 8. But contrary to what you may have heard elsewhere, these two ...
