Tumblin’ about Twitter. Maggie Furlong has broken down the big social media changes that the various networks have implemented.
“Supernatural” has one of the most active online fanbases of any show we cover on Zap2it, so we’ve come to expect a wide range of opinions after any given episode. Now that Season 7 is over, we thought we’d take a look at the 23 episodes and discuss some thoughts on Sera Gamble’s last season as showrunner. Please note that this article represents one fan’s opinion, and we expect plenty of conflicting views. Discussion is welcome (and encouraged!) in the comments section below — just make sure to keep it classy!
We’ve seen The CW’s new fall and midseason pilots, and while they’re not for review (things often change drastically before the shows are set to premiere), we do want to share our first reactions with you.
There are 10 new scripted shows coming to The CW that were ready to preview — the good (really digging “Arrow”), the questionable (“Beauty and the Beast”? Really?) and the worst new drama of the season (“Cult,” we’re looking at you) — and HuffPost TV staff Maureen Ryan, Maggie Furlong, Jaimie Etkin, Chris Harnick, Alex Moaba and Laura Prudom had plenty of varying opinions.
Some thoughts on “The Carrie Diaries” (which really wasn’t that bad!)
Jaimie Etkin: Watch It
I wasn’t expecting to enjoy “The Carrie Diaries,” but I really did. The ’80s setting is fun, AnnaSophia Robb is wonderful in the role of baby Bradshaw and the homages to the HBO series — like Carrie’s pre-writing scrunchie — are very satisfying. But I can’t help but wonder: How does this well-adjusted 15-year-old become such a freaking basketcase on “Sex and the City”?
Maureen Ryan: DVR It
It’s cute enough, but pretty insubstantial. Also, I was a teenager in the ’80s. Not everyone wore that much neon. Just sayin’.

Supernatural season 8 is set to begin this October – but fans now have more than just a refreshed version of their favorite series to look forward to, as series stars Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles have announced that they’ve agreed to return for seasons 9 and 10.
With two months to go before fans can gaze upon the series premiere, The CW has put out yet another trailer for Arrow to remind them that the new adventures of Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell) will be gracing the airwaves come this fall. At this point most would rather just see the show, but this spiffy promo is still a welcome sight.
