We love The CW here at SciFi Mafia. Other than Syfy, Chiller, and Fear, who have a directed advantage, The CW shows far more of Our Kind of Shows than any other network. Currently on the roster they have Supernatural, Arrow, The Tomorrow People, Beauty and the Beast, and Nikita, which is sadly currently in its final, excellent, season.
Happily they’re replacing that with not one but two more of Our Kind of Shows – and with luck, Flash will also be on its way to us, though that wouldn’t be until fall. Today they’ve announced premiere dates for the two new shows, and a schedule shift for two current shows:

Just seen an ad for new Revenge - when is it back on?
Good news - you'll barely have had time to recover from your New Year hangover by the time Revenge is back on the box. Yes, Emily Van Camp will be vamping on E4 once more from - make a note - Monday, January 6.
The new episodes - which see Smallville veteran Justin Hartley join the cast - are a bit of a form to return after a muddled second season too, with the Initiative consigned to the garbage and plenty of exciting plot twists in the premiere alone. »
Cinema is only as good as its directorial talent and Britain is fortunate to have a rich sea of excellent directors who have not only contributed to British cinema, but to world cinema as a whole. These are the films that make you proud to be British, they are interesting, taboo breaking, intellectually stimulating and bloody well made. Thanks to the calibre of our directors.
I don’t know whether you would call the directors below ‘mavericks’, but they have largely marched to the beat of their own drum and each of them possess an inimitable style which you could call ‘quirky’. All of the following directors have made a huge splash in cinema through being true to their own personal visions.
Please add your own favourite British directors below.

When Zack Snyder cast Henry Cavill as the lead in Man of Steel, it wasn't the British actor's first brush with Superman. Back in 2004, Cavill was cast as the iconic superhero in Superman: Flyby, a planned reboot from director McG (Charlie's Angels) and screenwriter J.J. Abrams (Star Trek Into Darkness), which ultimately fell apart when Bryan Singer came on board and cast Brandon Routh in 2006's Superman Returns. And, thanks to ThinkMcFlyThink, we have a glimpse of Cavill in the red-and-blue from his 2004 screen test for Flyby...
Superman: Flyby was intended as an origin tale that would have radically altered the traditional Superman story, with Kal-El being sent to Earth as an infant during a Civil War on Krypton and eventually coming to battle his evil cousin Ty-Zor and his three Kryptonian cronies, but only after being killed in action and subsequently resurrected. Other actors said to have been considered »

‘How I Met Your Mother’: What’S Next For Lily And Marshall? Plus, Mother Scoopage
As Lily has indicated in the past few episodes of this season, she’s less than happy about Marshall’s secret-keeping ways, and when his road journey finally brings him to the Inn, there will be blood. Kidding. But there will certainly be some “twists and surprises,” as executive producer Craig Thomas teases. »

Everything we feared came true in "Supernatural's" midseason finale on Tuesday (Dec. 3). "Holy Terror" finally gave us the truth about Sam's angelic pacemaker, and it was nothing good. In fact, it was the worst outcome possible.
Turns out, "Zeke" isn't actually Ezekiel, good guy, noble warrior, ethical and all-around standup angel. Cas found out that Ezekiel actually died along with a bunch of other angels during The Fall, and an angel who was locked up in heaven's jail assumed the noble warrior angel's identity. Meet Gadreel, the angel responsible for letting a serpent into the Garden of Eden.
So not only did Gadreel lie to Dean about who he was, he also took over Sam's body fully, and after sneaking off to meet Metatron, performed his first hit as Metatron's No. 2.
Gadreel killed Kevin Tran.
Rip our favorite AP-student-turned-prophet. In one of the most gut-wrenching scenes, Gadreel murdered the »
Supernatural Episode 909
Directed By: Thomas J. Wright
Original Airdate: 3 December 2013
In This Episode...
Sam and Dean show up to a massacre at a biker bar and discover Castiel there, posing as an FBI agent like the boys taught him. Despite the fact that he is wanted by every angel in existence, Cas still feels like it is his duty to help with this whole angel war. There are essentially two sides to the angel war. Those who side with Bartholomew, and a new faction that follows an angel named Malachi. It is a highly contentious rivalry, with all angels being forced to pick a side. Those who don’t are tortured until they declare their allegiance.
Dean is having a harder and harder time keeping the truth from Sam. He spills on Ezekiel to Castiel as explanation for why Cas has to stay away. »

Season 9 of Supernatural, to date, has shown that being shut out of Heaven had brought a new level of ruthlessness out in all Angels, perhaps best characterised by Bartholomew’s nonchalant killing of Buddy Boyle’s daughter. With the factions battling for control of Heaven following Castiel’s abrupt departure, it was inevitable that the fall would only temporarily pause the fighting. Combined with the new brand of ruthlessness and a callous disregard for human lives, this week’s episode explores the toll this battle is taking, and the major players, in a powerful episode that sees the re-entry of key players into the fold, with extreme consequences.
The larger look into the Angels’ various factions this week is a fascinating one. »

It’s the Supernatural season 9 mid-season finale, and the series made sure to leave its fans with something to think about until its January 14 return. Though it may have taken longer than most had hoped, the return to this season’s Heavenly battle took a no holds barred approach in escalating the severity of Metatron’s (Curtis Armstrong) grab for power and Dean’s unfortunate lie.
In this week’s episode, “Holy Terror,” written by longtime series duo Brad Buckner & Eugenie Ross-Leming, all hell (or Heaven) breaks loose as two factions of angels – one lead by Maliki, the anarchist, the other by Bartholomew – wage a series of bloody battles in order to gain the ...

It was angel warfare on Tuesday’s Supernatural, but the real battle was inside Sam.
Turns out the angel healing him isn’t who he claims to be. In a surprise twist, Ezekiel is revealed to be Gadreel, who was in charge of protecting the garden from evil. Alas, the serpent entered the garden and Earth was infected with badness. Someone had to take the blame, so Gadreel was locked up in Heaven’s darkest dungeon. But now he’s out and free thanks to Metatron, who proposes that they rebuild Heaven together, but only include the angels they like, »

”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.

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 struggle involving the King of Hell, »

Mark Pellegrino is a bad guy. He has lied. He has killed. He’s literally been sent to Hell. Most recently, he threatened his own nephew’s life. What kind of person does that? Well, for starters, an actor who is way too good at being oh so bad.
Odds are, if you’re a television fan, you’ve seen Pellegrino before. And if you’ve seen him, there’s a good chance he was playing a villain of some sort. From his roles on Dexter and Supernatural, to Lost, Being Human, Revolution, and now, as Jedekiah Price on The Tomorrow People, »

Tumblr just released a year-end list of their most reblogged actors and actresses, and it reads not only like a list of the Internet's most-beloved celebs (Poehler! Hiddleston!), but also like a list of TV shows that teenagers love. What works best on Tumblr is the visual (a.k.a. GIFs), thus the most reblogged are the ones who either charm us with their one-liners or appear on TV shows that inspire a younger crowd's immense fandom. Like Supernatural: Stars Jenson Ackles, Jared Padalecki, and Misha Collins appear on the lists. So does most of Teen Wolf (Dyan O'Brian, Tyler Hoechlin, Daniel Sharman, Tyler Posey, and Crystal Reed) and Glee. Other stars who "do well" on Tumblr include actors from Doctor Who (Jenna Louise Coleman, David Tennant, and Karen Gillian) and other Brits (Martin Freeman, Emma Watson, Kaya Scodelario, and Tom Hiddleston). As far as wider known A-listers go, »

Supernatural, Season 9, Episode 8: “Rock and a Hard Place”
Written by Jenny Klein
Directed by John MacCarthy
Airs Tuesdays at 9pm (Et) on The CW
Throughout their time fighting otherworldly creatures, the Winchesters have ended up making a few friends. Some of these are not full-fledged hunters, yet are aware that what goes bump in the night is very real. One such notable ally is Sheriff Jody Mills, an acquaintance of Bobby who became a valuable friend to the veteran hunter. Bobby’s death did not sever the connection between the Sheriff and the Winchesters, and they team up with her once again this week, in a strong standalone episode that brings in a new foe while giving an old character her due.
It’s good to see Sheriff Mills make a return appearance, particularly after the events at the end of Season 8. The gradual inclusion »
