While interviewing the local townsfolk, Sam meets an elderly woman named Julia (guest star Jenny O’Hara), who tells him the Men of Letters came to town in 1958. Julia tells Sam the story of a young man named Henry Winchester (guest star Gil McKinney) and his female companion, Josie Sands (guest »

Jensen Ackles and his Supernatural costar Jared Padalecki are hard at work finishing up the show's ninth season in Vancouver, and nothing will stop them - not even torrential downpour. While filming a scene with their other favorite costar, '67 Impala "Baby," on Wednesday, the Winchester brothers braved the rain while doing the walk-and-talk we love them for. Jensen made a particularly sexy entrance, striking a pose as he stepped out of the car, and then offering that gorgeous smirk that melts hearts everywhere. You know the one - he showed it off throughout award season, and it's one of his many amazing facial expressions. View Slideshow › »

Supernatural, Season 9, Episode 15: “#Thinman”
Written by Jenny Klein
Directed by Jeannot Szwarc
Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on The CW
Over the course of their time fighting supernatural entities, the Winchesters have crossed paths with many individuals, some of them multiple times. Much to the chagrin of the Winchesters, one group they have encountered over and over again are the Ghostfacers, a group of otherworldly activity chasers who have previously shown a somewhat tenuous grasp of the knowledge that the Winchesters are well-versed in. This week’s episode sees Sam and Dean cross paths with the Ghostfacers once again, in an enjoyable episode that draws on the parallels between the group and the brothers.
While the Ghostfacers as a group have been hit or miss in their history on the show, they have always been effective as a mirror image look at the lives of the Winchesters. »

1. Is Crowley still the King of Hell? Or has Abaddon ousted him from his throne?
2. Can Dean really trust him? Or is his reliance on Crowley going to bite Dean in the butt soon?
3. What is going on with Crowley's craving for blood?
While we won't get answers until the next new episode of "Supernatural" on Tuesday, March 18, at least The CW released a promo to hold us over until then. And based on the footage from "Blade Runners," Crowley's blood cravings have gotten out of control ... he's addicted to blood now. Has he given up his hunt for the blade that can kill Abaddon in favor of blood binges? Uh oh ...
Watch the new promo below:

Supernatural Episode 915
Written By: Jenny Klein
Directed By: Jeannot Szwarc
Original Airdate: 4 March 2014
In This Episode…
Dean has picked up a case, and is heading out without even asking Sam if he wants to join. After last week’s snub from Sam, Dean seems to have just given up. But Sam wants to help, so off they go to Springdale, Washington, where a good religious teenager named Casey was snapping completely innocent selfies. A terrifying figure appears behind her in one of the photos - then kills her. The photo - with the monster in it - surfaced online two hours after her death.
When the guys roll into town they discover someone has beaten them to it: the Ghostfacers! It is down to just Ed and Harry now; the others abandoned ship. As you can imagine, Dean is pissed that they are there. Sam does his due diligence »

"Supernatural" takes a break next week, airing a rerun, but the show returns on March 18th with Episode 9.16, "Blade Runners," in which the King of Hell needs help kicking an addiction. Check out a preview, and look for a clip soon!
"Supernatural" Episode 9.16 - "Blade Runners" (airs 3/18/14, 9-10pm)
Crowley Sinks Deeper Into His Addiction; Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi Appears In A Cameo Role — Dean (Jensen Ackles) is frustrated when he can’t reach Crowley (Mark Sheppard), who has promised to find The First Blade.
When Crowley finally calls Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean, he tells them he fell off the wagon and has been injecting human blood and needs their help. To make matters worse, he had a demon (guest star Rebecca Marshall) helping him find blood, but she sold him out and told Abaddon that he and the Winchesters were searching for The First Blade. The brothers need to »

When Supernatural's show-within-a-show Ghostfacers debuted in season three (complete with its own theme song, opening credits, and commercial bumpers), Supernatural had only just begun playing around with meta comedy and outright parody. The then-ubiquitous genre of ghost-chaser reality shows was ripe territory for a couple of steam-rolling Winchester bros, and since then Supernatural's gotten even weirder and more esoteric with its meta-commentary. Slash-fic, Supernatural conventions, even occasional jaunts to Jared Padalecki's mansion: All are now normal things within the Supernatural multi-verse. But while Ghostfacers' original parodic gimmick may have lost some edge and effectiveness over the years, Harry and Ed's appearance in "#Thinman" had a heavier, more important purpose: to provide a cautionary tale to the Winchesters on how easily friendships can break down over trust issues. In that sense, the Ghostfacers' return was a welcome reunion. If only the actual supernatural threat were anywhere near as effective. »

It didn’t get much help from its two new shows to bow last week — “Mind Games” and “Mixology” — but an extra night of “The Bachelor,” the return of “Scandal” and a big finish from Sunday’s Oscars has lifted ABC to a rare weekly victory.
Overall, the first week following the Olympics brought out premieres across the dial. In addition to the ABC pair, NBC launched comedies “About a Boy” and “Growing Up Fisher,” and there were the season openers for returnees including CBS’ “Survivor,” NBC’s “Hannibal” and cable dramas “Dallas” on TNT, “The Americans” on FX and “The Vikings” on History.
Looking at the Nielsen numbers, ABC cruised in the Feb. 24-March 2 frame with a 3.3 rating/10 share in adults 18-49, followed »

Sam and Dean are still in the midst of their brotherly spat, but the Winchesters weren’t the only dynamic duo having relationship troubles in this week’s episode of Supernatural. The other pair of embattled buddies? None other than the Ghostfacers, who made their reappearance this week after a five-season (!) absence.
As you might be able to guess, it wasn’t exactly a happy reunion between the brothers and “supernaturalists”/official pains in the rump Harry (Travis Wester) and Ed (A.J. Buckley). In fact, Ed and Harry were probably the last people Sam and Dean expected to encounter while »

Seriously, not even the ghost of their murdered friend can get Sam and Dean to stop fighting? That didn't seem right when the episode first aired, and a week later, it's still an injustice. Pair that with Tuesday (March 4) night's too meta episode, "Thinman," and we're reaching ridiculous levels of denial and stubbornness. Yes, the Winchesters are practically known for their stubbornness, but this has gone too far.
When a Winchester quarrel gets in the way of their ability to hunt, that's when you know it's gone on too long. When Sam and Dean started working a case in which a tall, thin man with no face murdered people from inside locked rooms, they wouldn't agree on what they were hunting. Dean was sure it was »
“The thrilling and terrifying journey of the Winchester brothers continues as Supernatural enters its ninth season. Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) have spent their lives on the road, battling every kind of supernatural threat. Over the years, after dozens of bloody adventures, they have faced everything from the yellow-eyed demon that killed their mother to vampires, ghosts, shapeshifters, Angels and fallen gods. They even came face to face with Lucifer and the Four Horsemen in averting the Apocalypse. With the help of allies — both human and supernatural — they’ve discovered that every threat they vanquish opens a new door for evil to enter in. In the show’s eighth season, their supernatural hunting expedition led them directly into an age-old power »

By the looks of it, the Tribeca Film Festival might finally be growing out of their awkward teenage phase and moving into a new era where the nab more than just Sundance and SXSW festival rejects. Artistic Director Frederic Boyer has managed to nab some noteworthy American indie projects such as Lou Howe’s Gabriel (see pic above), Keith Miller’s Five Star, Adam Rapp’s Loitering with Intent, and Tristan Patterson’s Electric Slide.
On the docu front, we’ve got the latest from the likes of notable documentarians Marshall Curry and Jessica Yu. Think Ewan McGregor’s Long Way Round meets child solider movie for Curry’s awesomely titled Point and Shoot — where the Libyan rebel army take hold of Curry’s subject.
