The album that Dean picks up and seems impressed with in the record shop is Kansas' classic 'Point of No Return'. That's the one that has its title song and "Dust in the Wind." See more »


When Sam and Dean are investigating a sound in the basement at 19:30, you can see that the doors to the cabinet change position between scene changes. When Sam reaches out to open the cabinet, the door closest to him in the close-up is open more. But in the zoomed out shot, it's the opposite door that is more ajar. See more »

Sam and Dean go to a town with a house haunted by a farmer and encounter two paranormal investigators, who really know nothing about demon hunting
30 October 2006 | by See all my reviews

The best episode from season 1, has everything. So funny, makes me laugh every time I watch it. Great music in it too! They add in the paranormal investigators, whom are absolutely hilarious, the pranks add to the amusement. A good story line, original, and each of the characters are original in their own way. The teens are extremely typical, and the investigators are complete geeks, it's great! Sam and Dean pulling pranks on each other is a great idea, showing that they are brothers, it helps thicken their relationship. They're pranks are also great, and relate to the characters. (ex. Dean's hand stuck to the bottle, spoon in Sam's mouth)
