The song at the beginning of the episode is "Fire of Unknown Origin" by the 'Blue Oyster Cult'. (From the same titled LP). See more »


Just after shooting at Mordechai with Ed and Harry filming behind them, Sam and Dean walk off looking around for the spirit. While the camera focuses on Ed and Harry talking about their video footage, someone's shoulder comes on screen from the right. Sam had headed left off-screen and Dean went through a door on-screen, so it could only be a film crew member. See more »


Sam Winchester: I have a confession to make.
Dean Winchester: What's that?
Sam Winchester: [about Ed and Harry] I was the one who called them and told 'em I was a producer.
Dean Winchester: Well, I'm the one who put the dead fish in their backseat.

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)
