Storyline

When colleague hunter Bobby Singer arrives, the Winchester brothers tell him alternative versions, each incriminating the other, of their weird experiences in a university where improbable stories happened. Professor Cox made a fatal fall when seduced by a non-student girl, a frat's pledge-master reportedly suffered extreme hazing after an alien abduction, a research assistant's arm was eaten alive by a sewer alligator. Sam lost his computer, Dean his car. Bobby concludes it's the work of a trickster demon. The brothers have a single suspect, who puts on a grand final fight of wit and temptation.

Trivia

Sam's laptop gets frozen on bustyasianbeauties.com, which links directly to the official Warner Bros. website. This also marks the first mention of "Busty Asian Beauties," which became a recurring joke in future episodes, as a supposed "interest" of Dean's. See more »

Funniest episode of the season
15 February 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What can I say about "Tall Tales" other than it was the best episode this season. Kripke kept us laughing from the beginning to the end. There was so much tension between Sam and Dean that it reminded all of us of last season's "Hell House." Which is what Kripke intended for this episode. Sam slashed Dean's tires and Dean stole Sam's laptop. Or so they thought. Really it was someone or something else that stole it. I'm not going to give away what or who did it, but watching the brother's different points of views was hilarious. From Sam hugging some random guy to Dean drinking purple nurples this was the episode to watch whether or not you are a fan of the show. And of course all of you who enjoy the "Wincest" there was the wrestling scene between Sam and Dean. I can't wait for the DVD to come out for this season because I bet there are a lot of outtakes from this episode. Jared had his scene going "Blah, blah, blah, blah.... BLAH!!!" and Jensen had his scene eating all the chocolates or whatever it was. And both actors overacting was right on, making this episode even better. I bet they messed up many times in this episode. Of course the next new episode won't be on for an entire month. I guess I can start focusing on my studies now (yeah, right.) For any of you who missed any of the episode from "Playthings" on should start watching next week. I know I might tune in just to watch those hot, sexy Winchester boys. The next new episode is back to serious Supernatural, but it still looks good.
