  • Talk about a mini-Supernatural reunion. BTW, is Eric Kripke still pulling double duty on Revolution and Supernatural as producer?

    • Jack, Kripke isn’t an executive producter on Supernatural any more. He hasn’t been since the end of Season 5, when his contract with the network expired and he opted not to renew it. He is billed as “created by” in the credits and IMDB says he is an “executive consultant” on the show.

  • Okay, Kripke, you can borrow Bobby but you have to give him back. And give Edlund back too!

    • Thirded. Quit stealing all the good people from Supernatural. Although if you want Sera Gamble, you can have her. We don’t want her. :)

        • Yes! At least they haven’t taken Crowley (Mark Sheppard) away from us.

  • Don’t leave out Jim Beaver’s awesome performance in the HBO megahit “Deadwood” as Ellsworth; or miss out on Timothy Olyphant (“Justified”); and Ian McShane (most recently as Blackbeard on “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”), who also starred in “Deadwood.”
