Trivia

The reflections of the changelings in this story appear to be heavily inspired by a creature from a Star Trek (original series) episode called "The Man Trap" (season 1, episode 1). The big difference, the creature in Star Trek fed on salt whereas the changelings in this episode fed on other bodily fluids. See more »

Trite
12 December 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I know I'm pretty much alone with my opinion on this, but I find the Dean-Kid-Scenario extremely trite.

It's not the idea in itself I have a problem with, but the way it's been transformed. It's just too much, the similarities between Dean and the kid seem so forced, that it makes me feel as if the creators don't have that high an opinion of the audience so that they try to make their point so obvious that even the dumbest viewer gets the idea. The 'bond' between them was so exaggerated that I didn't feel anything between them at all.

I would have appreciated if they had handled that matter in a much more subtle way. I liked how Dean connected with the boy in 'Dead in the Water'. That touched my heart.

The two points I give this episode are for the changelings. They did scare me a little bit..
