Welcome Back, Supernatural!

In 2009 Fall Season, Supernatural, The CW, The O.C., Veronica Mars on 09/10/2009 at 12:35 pm

Supernatural

Just a quick round up of all the posts we’ve had leading up to the fifth season of Supernatural on The CW.  Let’s see…There’s pictures of Mark Pellegrino as Satan, plus a promotional trailer called Subliminal,  and one called O’ Death.  Also, season 3 came out on DVD.  And while we didn’t make posts about it, we’re excited that Adrianne Palicki will be reprising her role as Jessica on the third episode of the season, Free To Be You and Me, on September 23rd.  There was also a big uproar over the fact that Paris Hilton will make a guest appearance as a demon at some point in the season.  While we’re not fans of Ms. Hilton, we do have to admit that she chooses good shows (Veronica Mars, The O.C.) to make guest appearances on and those bits are usually kinda funny.

Here’s a pic of Adrianne’s return to Supernatural:

The fifth season of Supernatural begins this evening, Thursday September 10th at 9pm on The CW.

Supernatural Pics: Mark Pellegrino As Satan

In 2009 Fall Season, Sci-Fi, Supernatural, The CW on 09/09/2009 at 2:55 pm

Mark Pellegrino

DaemonsTV got first look pictures of Mark Pelligrino on the sixth season of The CW’s Supernatural.  We first took notice of Pelligrino when he ruled as Rita’s creepy wife-beating junkie ex on Dexter.  More recently he ruled as the island’s creepy Jacob on Lost.  He’s good at being creepy, so we’re excited to see how he plays the creep himself: Satan.

Mark Pellegrino

The evil one’s guest-stint begins this Thursday during the season premiere, though these pictures are from episode three, entitled “Free To Be You and Me”, which will air September 24th.

Supernatural returns to The CW on Thursday September 10th at 9pm for it’s fifth season.

Fringe Paranoia Promo

In 2009 Fall Season, 30 Rock, Fox, Fringe, Grey's Anatomy, Supernatural, The Office on 09/02/2009 at 4:02 pm

Fringe

We’re really looking forward to the sophomore season of spooky mind-bending-ness from Fringe.  What we’re not looking forward to is trying to program Supernatural, Grey’s Anatomy, The Office, 30 Rock and Fringe into our DVR for the same hour each week!  It’s gonna be a tough season.

Fringe returns for it’s second season to Fox on Thursday September 17th at 9pm.

Supernatural – O’ Death

In 2009 Fall Season, O' Brother Where Art Thou?, Supernatural, The CW on 08/27/2009 at 2:25 pm

Supernatural

Didn’t we just do this?  Yes, we did!  The CW has posted another Supernatural trailer.  We try to avoid using the word “sick” except for in very special occasions and, well, this seems to constitute one.  So yeah, this is a pretty sick promo for a great show.  It features lot’s of intense footage and a cover of the song “O’ Death”.  While we would have preferred the O’ Brother Where Art Thou version, we’ll take what get.

Supernatural returns to The CW for it’s fifth (and rumored to be final?) season on Thursday September 10th at 9pm.

Vampire Diaries – Squeamish

In 2009 Fall Season, 2009 Pilots, One Tree Hill, Roswell, Supernatural, Teen Soaps, The CW, Vampire Diaries on 08/27/2009 at 10:04 am

Vampire Diaries

I am not gonna lie – of all the teen soaps set to premiere this fall I’m most looking forward to Vampire Diaries.  From the trailers and promotional material I’ve come across, it seems to have a very Roswell meets One Tree Hill with vampires quality to it.  I dig all three of those factors, so I’m guessing it’ll be looked forward to on a weekly basis.  Plus it’s teamed up with Supernatural, so it’s gonna be a very horrorific evening each and every Thursday.

Vampire Diaries premieres Thursday September 10th at 8pm on The CW, followed by the season fifth premiere of Supernatural.

Along with being the biggest month of the year for both series and season premiere’s for TV, September is also one of the biggest months for TV on DVD releases.  Don’t ask us why.  We think it’s kinda stupid to wait until September as, like we’ve already pointed out, the month is crammed with plenty of stuff to watch on TV AND it doesn’t give people much time to catch up before the next season begins, beyond the fact that it’s a wallet-buster.  It’s a massive month of overload, in our book.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t still be excited!  We’re especially looking forward to Fox’s mind-bending first season of Fringe, the fourth season of The CW’s cult-hit Supernatural (on blu-ray to boot!), Canadian sci-fi lite dramedy Being Erica‘s first season and, of course, the third season of NBC’s comedy giant 30 Rock.

In anticipation of the release of Fringe‘s first season on September 8th, they setup a cool website in which you can enter to win a visit to the show’s set in Vancouver, among other things.  Once you enter  you can watch a video about the difficulties of filming the episode The Ghost Network and then play a game which, if you answer correctly, gives you five extra entries into that set visit contest.  And here’s a little hint for our readers: you may wanna brush up on some episodes of ABC Family’s Greek for some help on the game.  Check out the site: Completethepattern.com

New Supernatural Promo

In 2009 Fall Season, Supernatural, The CW, Vampire Diaries on 08/21/2009 at 1:33 pm

Supernatural

The CW has released a new promotional trailer for sci-fi thriller Supernatural.  The show will be returning this fall for it’s fifth season, which will be sure to please the show’s a cult-like following.  We here at DVR Life are guessing that cult-like following will get a bit of a bump from the hunky demon chasing duo’s new vamp-based lead-in, Vampire Diaries.  Upcoming highlights for the series includes the appearance of Satan and Paris Hilton guest starring as a demon – quite a pair, I’m sure.

Supernatural returns to The CW for it’s fifth season on Thursday September 10th at 9pm.

From Small Screen To Big

In Friday Night Lights, Gilmore Girls, Grey's Anatomy, Lost, Movies, Private Practice, Supernatural, The Closer, The CW, The Division, Touching Evil on 08/14/2009 at 2:42 pm

legion02

Our posts about movies are few and far between.  We pretty much only write about big screen productions that include actors better known for, or who got their start on, television.  If we did this for each and every cross over, well that’d be a whole new blog, but we thought we’d give you a nice little double shot here, one from each end of the spectrum.

First up is Post Grad, a cute little film starring Alexis Bledel, who got her start as the ultra-cute Rory on Gilmore Girls and Zach Gilford, better known as Matt Saracen of Friday Night Lights.

Post Grad

And the second clip is for a horror flick called Legion.  The film stars a slew of TV actors, including, oddly enough, a bunch of soap opera stars.  We don’t cover soap operas, so we’ll stick with the primetime players, though.  As with the last movie, this one stars another Friday Night Lights alum, Adrianne Palicki, who you might also recognize from CW’s Supernatural.  Joining her are Kate Walsh of Private Practice and Grey’s Anatomy, Kevin Durand of Lost, Touching Evil and Dark Angel, and finally, Jon Tenney of The Closer and The Division.

Warning: This trailer is not safe for work! Lot’s of cussing and violence. This is an R Rated trailer.

Quick News Roundup

In Burn Notice, Dexter, Gossip Girl, Lost, Mental, Supernatural on 06/29/2009 at 2:04 pm

Ausiello says: Mark Pellegrino, who plays Jacob on Lost and Rita’s ex on Dexter, has been cast as Lucifer for Supernatural‘s big apocalypse show down next season while Chris Vance, pretty much the only redeeming quality (in our opinion) of Fox’s one-run summer show Mental will be joining the cast of USA’s Burn Notice for four episodes as an MI5 agent.

Spoiler TV has pics from the first day of shooting Gossip Girl‘s third season. Considering they just started shooting this morning, Spoiler TV has some pretty quick contacts. Here’s the pics.

Also check out the new poster for season 7 of One Tree Hill above. It’s a bit sparse without Chad Michael Murray and Hilarie Burton. If you look real closely at the credits, there’s no mention of Antwon Tanner, though I’m not sure if he’s ever been a starring cast member.

CW 2009/2010 Schedule

In Programming, Smallville, Supernatural, The CW, Vampire Diaries on 05/21/2009 at 6:17 pm
Next year’s CW schedule looks…almost completely like this years. The only surprise is the near-dumping of the network’s long running superhero hit “Smallville”. Here’s the schedule:

Monday
8pm “Gossip Girl”
9pm “One Tree Hill”
Tuesday
8pm “90210”
9pm “Melrose Place”
Wednesday
8pm “America’s Next Top Model”
9pm “The Beautiful Life”
Thursday
8pm “Vampire Diaries”
9pm “Supernatural”
Friday
8pm “Smallville”
9pm “America’s Next Top Model” (repeats)
Word was out a while ago what pickups the network would be making and the only surprise left was the scheduling. Pairing the new “Melrose Place” with “90210” was a no brainer. The original Melrose premiered on the back of the original “Beverly Hills 90210” in Fox’s 1992 fall season, so there was little doubt it wouldn’t happen again. Let’s just hope this new Melrose recreation is not as bad as CW’s “90210”.
Placing “Vampire Diaries” with “Supernatural” was a bit more of a surprise. While the premise and style of the two probably match much better than “Smallville” and “Supernatural”, and the two will probably share more fans, I would not have expected the network the simply toss aside a long running series like “Smallville”.
Sure, NBC is doing the same thing to 20 year vet “Law & Order” but that’s due to declining ratings. Having just ended it’s eighth season, which is near unheard of with teen oriented series, the shows ratings this last season remained near identical to the year before. At it’s peak, season 2, the show earned ratings that were surprsingly high for it’s network. The CW (and previously The WB) are kinda known for buzz worthy teen fare with low on air ratings but HUGE download numbers and the slow decline of “Smallville”‘s ratings pretty much relate that.
The Friday 8pm slot is an absolute dead zone. Let’s make no bones about it – Smallville’s audience consists mainly of high school kids with a love of comic books, sci fi and terrible music and TV addicts, such as myself, that watch damn near everything. The TV addicts, of course, have DVR’s and they’ll be reprogrammed, but here’s hoping the high school kids can talk their parents into getting DVR’s if they don’t already have them.
Truthfully, it seems as if it’s been a struggle to get the show on the air the last few seasons with cast members wanting to leave leading to tougher contract negotiations and what not. This year, the show’s ninth, will most likely be it’s last and maybe the network figures to hell with the on air ratings, shove it to Friday and let everyone DVR or download it.

Incoming!

In 30 Rock, Better Off Ted, Dollhouse, Flashpoint, Fringe, Grey's Anatomy, Lost, My Name Is Earl, Numb3rs, Parks and Recreation, Rescue Me, Smallville, Southland, Supernatural, The Office, The Unusuals on 04/21/2009 at 6:17 pm

Tonight (Tuesday)
Fringe. Finally got caught up from that American Moron debacle and must say the show has come back from hiatus with a vengeance.

The Unusuals. As posted earlier, ABC is running two new episodes of The Unusuals this week, hoping to see if a new time slot and lead-in will bump ratings up. That means there’s some high hopes for this show in the upper echelons of the network.

Rescue Me. The season is off to a funny start, as per usual. With all the build up towards the section 8 hearing, the outcome was a bit flat but…probably more true to life than if anything crazy would have happened.

Wednesday
Lie To Me. Each week brings up another intriguing story. I wonder how long they can keep it up, though. Seems like the stories could get stale after a bit but Tim Roth‘s facial expressions and dead pan, though sometimes squeaky, acting will probably make up for that.

Better Off Ted. I’m not a fan of multicamera sitcoms but I have to admit to much chuckling during this show. Perhaps it’s making fun of corporations that I love so much, but the off and on again romantic story line between Ted and Linda is rather cute and the bickering between Lem and Phil is quite comical. Veronica, though, is just creepy. Those Veridian Dynamics mock commercials are hilarious. ABC should have broadcast those as a mystery campaign before the show aired.

Lost. Very excited to see what Faraday has to say about what’s going on. And where the hell is Sayid?

The Unusuals. It’s a double shot this week.

Thursday.
My Name Is Earl. So sad the ratings for this show have been in declined because it probably creates the most laugh out loud moments of any show on my DVR.

Smallville. Who would have thought this show could last so many years and not get tiresome? Chloe is now in charge of keeping Davis from becoming Dr. Doom. That’s a pretty big job. When she closed the basement door at the end of the last episode…Well let;s just say it was creepy.

Supernatural. This season has been ruling. The addition of the angels has made for some great moments (and great visuals). While I route for Sam and Dean to defeat evil, I take great pleasure in watch Dean wield his power…even if it is evil.

Parks and Recreation. The show has been getting a lot of hype and decent ratings…But I’m not really feeling it. Maybe because it’s just storylines from The Office being reused.

Grey’s Anatomy. When we last left them, Izzie had surgery, Meredeth and Derek were engaged, George was pouting, Alex was hiding his feelings (surprise!) and Owen and Cristina broke up. I’m hoping we start seeing more George lately. I miss him.

The Office. The new story line with the Michael Scott Paper Company has been pretty fantastic. Good job to the writers for freshening things up a bit. This is probably the best season since the second.

30 Rock. They’ve thankfully gotten out of the guest star slump the season started off with and the wit and charm has returned. When watching this show always listen carefully to catch all the great one-liners.

Southland. Episode three airs this week so the blog reviews should start flooding in. I’ll just go ahead and say ‘stunning’. Great new show that I look forward to weekly. Benjamin McKenzie portrayal of rookie officer Ben Sherman has been flawless and, much like Tim Roth but in a very different manner, he makes his facial expressions do most of the work. At times I have trouble watching an actor from a beloved show (The O.C.) take on a new part with out my mind unconciously melding the two characters together, but McKenzie, through sheer talent alone, managed to break that habit this time. I thought last week’s episode was lacking in screen time for him, though.

Friday.
Flashpoint. Those Canadians know how to pack an emotional wallop, don’t they. An upper-middle female aged coworker of mine had this to say about the series: “I love how these big burly men do manly things but are also so sensitive…but manly.”

Dollhouse. The new blogger darling. Too bad 90% of the shows audience is watching it via illegal torrent downloads. Some may say that’s what the network gets for scheduling the show on Friday nights but atleast you can get it at Hulu, people.

Numb3rs. For someone that failed pretty much every math related course offered at my high school, I still find this show pretty intriguing. Without continuing storylines, though, there’s not much to write about.

Saturday.
Kings. Perhaps the move to Saturdays was warrented…I can see where the storylines are getting a bit tedious.
