Trivia

In the beginning of "Hollywood Babylon," the Winchesters are on a tour of Hollywood. The tour guide says that they are passing the place where Gilmore Girls (2000) is filmed, and if they're lucky they might get to see one of the stars. Jared Padalecki, who plays Sam Winchester, had a starring role on Gilmore Girls (2000), playing a character named Dean Forester. At this point, Sam Winchester looks uncomfortable and quickly leaves the tour bus. See more »

Goofs

At the end after Dean leaves Tara's trailer and he and Sam walk away, Tara is standing in the doorway and goes back into the trailer. In the next shot, she is still standing in the doorway. See more »

A Joke and Tribute to Hollywood People
23 July 2008 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dean and Sam go to Hollywood to investigate a haunted studio where the lead actress Tara Benchley of a horror movie saw a member of the crew dead and a ghost. Sam researches and finds that four people have died along the last eighty years and the ghost could be any of them. The Winchester brothers are mistaken as PAs and discover that the event was actually a marketing strategy to promote the film. But when the producer Brad Redding first and another executive later die in the set, they discover that a revengeful screenwriter is really summoning fiends in the shooting.

"Hollywood Babylon" is a funny episode, a joke and tribute to Hollywood people. Dean is hilarious, fascinated with the life and the lead actress of the movie. There are also many references to horror movies in this enjoyable episode. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "Assombração em Hollywood" (Ghost in Hollywood")
