What the Supernatural Musical Episode Should Look Like

Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki

Only a few details have been released about Supernatural's "musical-ish" 200th episode, but we're already tapping our toes in anticipation.

In an interview with Zap2ItJared Padalecki revealed that "Fan Fiction," penned by Robbie Thompson, will feature a play based on Chuck Shurley's Supernatural books (which covered Seasons 1-5). While the brothers only encounter the play in the course of an investigation, let's just take a minute and really imagine what this musical would look like in all its glory.

6 Reasons Why Harper's Island Needs to Come Back

Harper's Island

It's been five years since CBS premiered Harper's Island, and in the words of another famous island inhabitant, "We have to go back!" A woefully underrated horror murder mystery, the 13-episode series, which is available on Netflix, follows a group of family and friends that heads to the titular locale for a destination wedding, only to learn that there's a killer among them. At least one character gets whacked each episode, always in spectacular fashion. It was awesome, and it got the shaft (no pun intended). CBS canceled the show after moving it from Thursdays to Saturdays, natch, but if they know what's good for them, they'd bring back the dead.

Worst ways to go: TV's most outrageous deaths

Here are six reasons why CBS should resurrect Harper's Island — and why you should (re)watch.

The 10 Best Supernatural Characters

Kim Rhodes, Osric Chau

Supernatural will always be the story of Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles), but over the years the series has introduced dozens of other characters who have found beloved homes in the fandom. And on Tuesday's episode (9/8c, The CW), Sheriff Jody Mills (Kim Rhodes) returns again when she calls on the Winchesters to help investigate four missing virgins.

Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki

Supernatural returns for its ninth season Tuesday (8/7c, The CW) and we can't wait to see what's next for Team Free Will.

"I think this year's first three episodes of setting up our world are all pretty special," executive producer Robert Singer told reporters at Comic-Con over the summer. "There may be certain moves that some of our characters make that some fans don't like, but I think they're going to understand them ... and it's really going to be driving the mythology."

Hopes and Fears for Supernatural Season 9

Jensen Ackles,Jared Padalecki

Only a few weeks into the latest Supernatural "hell-atus" and I'm already overwhelmed with anxiety. What will human Castiel be like? Will Sam (Jared Padalecki) be OK? How annoying are those friggin' angels going to be? On one hand, I'm excited for the unknown possibilities, but I'm also worried about how the changes will affect Team Free Will. Here are the biggest Season 9 hopes and fears keeping me up at night: read more

The Wednesday Playlist: A Pivotal Idol, Great Guests on ABC Comedies

Lazaro Arbos

Here's a fearless (and rather obvious) prediction for what could be a pivotal week on Fox's American Idol. Regardless of what happens on the next performance show (Wednesday, 8/7c), if America's vote endangers any of the girls — none of whom have been sent home yet (sorry, guys, especially Burnell) — the judges will almost certainly use their season's one "save." read more

Justified Executive Producer Graham Yost Talks Season 4 Homestretch

Justified

Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant) finally got his man out of Harlan alive on the Tuesday's episode of Justified, but the end of the Drew Thompson mystery/pursuit doesn't necessarily mean an end to the case — there are still two episodes left this season, after all. TV Guide Magazine called up executive producer Graham Yost for a preview of the homestretch. read more

The Tuesday Playlist: High Times on Justified, New Girl; Splash or Belly Flop?

Timothy Olyphant, Jim Beaver, Erica Tazel

How long has the Justified fan waited for someone to ask this question to Boyd Crowder: "Where did you get all of those teeth?" You'll likely be grinning yourself, while cringing at the edge of your seat, as the pleasures just keep multiplying — a high-octane Justified highball of great banter, tremendous suspense, clever twists and reversals — in a harrowing, hilarious and fantastically entertaining episode, so eventful you might mistake it for a season finale, but thankfully there are still two more episodes to go (Tuesday, 10/9c, FX) in this terrific fourth season.

It has all been building to this violent showdown between the forces of good (the U.S. marshals) and evil (everyone else, from Boyd's crew to an army of thugs and snipers representing the Detroit mob). The target is Drew Thompson (the great Jim Beaver), a 30-year fugitive in sheriff's clothing, currently in the marshals' custody, although they feel like sitting ducks, outnumbered and outgunned in Harlan as they calculate several desperate escape maneuvers while awaiting rescue. The episode, written by exec producer Graham Yost and Chris Provenzano, is titled "Decoy," and revolves around a series of standoffs, confrontations and subterfuges that leave few unscathed and unbloodied. Special props to Patton Oswalt as the loyal and lovably resilient Constable Bob, who even Raylan has to admit is a "tough son-of-a-bitch" by the time the dust settles, following a tense encounter outside a (metaphorically apt) high-school principal's office.
