Supernatural – Season 9 Premiere Review

October 8, 2013 // 0 Comments

To open with a hypothetical question: what happens when you are given too much of a great thing?  To follow with a hypothetical answer: you get seasons 7, 8 and 9 of SUPERNATURAL. Note the picture.  I feel a lot like Dean right now. Allow me to be brief:  I’m disappointed.  Not just in a small nitpicky way, but in a major can’t-hardly-watch-it-anymore kind of way.  The massive polar shift that started at the onset of the sixth season burst in an awful seventh season and it ...Click for More

Top Ten Fall Shows with Midwest Mark

September 2, 2013 // 0 Comments

Here at MWTVG, we’re all about consistency.  Do you like how our Two-a-Days feature evolved from a beautiful seed of an idea to spontaneous 4-a-Days, No-a-Days, actual 2-a-Days and now Top 10 lists?  If anything, we’re consistently inconsistent.  And that’s something, isn’t it? That’s what you get when three mildly overweight midwestern guys who drink a little too much decide to start blogging one day.  If there’s elegance in simplicity, we’re ...Click for More

Supernatural Season 8 Review

May 19, 2013 // 0 Comments

Warning: mild spoilers abound. The 8th season of SUPERNATURAL wrapped on Wednesday to a phenomenally cool scene with a nearly-dead Sam, Dean and Castiel standing outside a chapel watching thousands of angels being expelled from heaven as they rain down to Earth in fiery comets. With as great as the last twenty seconds of the season were, one would imagine the rest of it would have been equally as good.  Sad to say no, but glad to say that it was an enormous leap forward from an abysmal ...Click for More

Supernatural – Remember the Titans

February 27, 2013 // 0 Comments

Question:  what do you get when you combine SUPERNATURAL with Greek mythology and competent supporting actors?  Answer: a fantastic episode.  And not just a fantastic episode, but the potential seeds of an awesome side-plot.  My overall faith in SUPERNATURAL is officially renewed. After being on the losing end of a hit and run, a hitchhiker with amnesia ends up really being the Greek god Prometheus who is cursed to die every day by Zeus himself.  Except that he fathered a son who also is ...Click for More

Supernatural – Man’s Best Friend With Benefits

February 20, 2013 // 0 Comments

SUPERNATURAL!!  After Sam ‘mistakenly’ passes the first of the three god-tests to finish the spell that closes the gates of hell, we suddenly forget all about it to take on a side-case to help one of their friends.  On one hand, I am happy to report this is another excellent episode (which means that we are up to three in a row now!)  How far can we go?  Dare I say that this season might end up being… pretty good? But on the other hand, the showrunners are having a pretty ...Click for More

Catching up on the Week Vol. 2

February 14, 2013 // 3 Comments

Damn real life.  Ideally I can someday get to the point where I can write professionally while sitting in an easy chair wearing a fancy robe sipping on coffee or mojitos or mojito-flavored coffee.  On second thought, that last part sounds awful.  Being able to deliver the latest and greatest news, reviews and insight on your favorite television shows?  Priceless. Hey, and while I’m on the topic, how about you like us on Facebook?  Or follow us on Twitter?  You won’t regret ...Click for More

Supernatural Officially Renewed!

February 12, 2013 // 0 Comments

The CW has announced early renewals of its three most popular series… THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, ARROW and SUPERNATURAL.  While I could care less about the first one and I could care even less than that for the second one, it’s good to see that SUPERNATURAL still has a significant following no matter how much it has deviated from its heyday. Judging from its last couple/few episodes, I can only hope it has turned the corner on storyline and is back on track from a quality standpoint. ...Click for More

Around The Web

February 11, 2013 // 0 Comments

Whenever I see your smiling face, I have to smile myself because I love you, yes I do.  And when you give that pretty little pout, it turns me inside out. Here’s the haps from around the web this Monday. I love first world problems and here is a good one.  Blake Lively is apparently upset with Ryan Reynolds over his vacation choices.  Since they have been married they have only had a couple of chances to get away and he has taken them camping both times.  She is starting to get ...Click for More

Supernatural – As Time Goes By

January 30, 2013 // 0 Comments

Breaking news:  Tonight’s episode of SUPERNATURAL was by far the best episode of SUPERNATURAL in the past two seasons.  Getting back to basics in a big way, it was a dark gritty demon-driven episode with Sam and Dean even bickering back and forth about their daddy issues again.  This tone is exactly what season 7 and 8 should have been all along.  Unfortunately, it ends up messing with the overall storyline a little too much, but I will let that pass in exchange for a few more like ...Click for More

Supernatural – LARP and the Real Girl

January 25, 2013 // 0 Comments

This week, Sam and Dean explore the phenomenally dorky universe of Live Action Role Playing and try to find out who or what is killing off a large number of the players.  One by one, some of the best LARPers (and by “best LARPers” I mean the ones not living in their parent’s basement) are getting spontaneous tattoos of a tree that appear on their forearms shortly before they die some sort of awful medieval-style death. This episode is filed with the ‘funny’ ...Click for More

Supernatural – Torn and Frayed

January 16, 2013 // 0 Comments

Regardless of how second-rate this season of SUPERNATURAL has been so far, I am excited to see it return from midseason break.  At least it’s nowhere near as bottom-barrel as season 7 was.  As far as I’m concerned, any sort of SUPERNATURAL is better than no SUPERNATURAL at all.  Things kick off appropriately in the “Then” segment with some classic rock crooning and some immediate bickering over silly family issues is boding well for the show getting back to basics. ...Click for More

Congratulations Supernatural…

January 9, 2013 // 0 Comments

Congratulations on winning the People’s Choice Award for Favorite Sci-fi/Fantasy TV Show!  This is the second consecutive win for SUPERNATURAL as it understandably beat out THE VAMPIRE DIARIES, ONCE UPON A TIME and DR WHO and it less understandably beat out THE WALKING DEAD. SUPERNATURAL also won in the less-important Favorite TV Fan Following category. The MIDWEST MARK’S Choice Award would have gone to THE WALKING DEAD if we are judging on this season alone.  But JARED PADALECKI ...Click for More

Supernatural – Hunteri Heroici

November 28, 2012 // 0 Comments

Literal translation:  Hunter’s Hero (I think)… SUPERNATURAL’S titles are not quite as deep as the obscure SONS OF ANARCHY titles… …but we’re not going for literal translation here.  It is a play off the Wile E Coyote cartoons in an ambitious episode in the vein of “Bad Day at Black Rock” or “Mystery Spot” that ultimately falls way short of the mark and starts to fall into some of season 7’s bad habits. More exists ...Click for More

Supernatural – A Little Slice of Kevin

November 14, 2012 // 0 Comments

Castiel (MISHA COLLINS) is back and better than ever… and thank you to ERIC KRIPKE and everybody else running SUPERNATURAL for finally getting back to the character’s roots.  For all intensive purposes it’s old season 4-6 Cas and he looks to be back to recurring status. In this week’s episode, Cas tries to appear to Dean several times before gathering up enough energy to appear for real.  Once he does, they all leave to go find a freshly abducted Kevin Tran after he ...Click for More

Supernatural – Southern Comfort

November 7, 2012 // 1 Comment

The DVR works overtime on any given Wednesday taping a wonderful group of shows that I need to somehow prioritize before my mild narcolepsy takes over and I wake up with the blue U-Verse screen burning into my big screen TV.  Both SUPERNATURAL and AMERICAN HORROR STORY are great choices, and I have decided to take on the burden of ARROW for the enrichment of MWTVG… My family also enjoys THE VOICE, and although MIDWEST MO is correct in saying that there are 19 singing shows at any given ...Click for More
