Better than i expected
27 March 2009 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

This episode is very nice,after having read the spoilers and seen the promo, i really thought this episode was gonna be a pain in the ass for two simply reasons, Sam and Dean weren't hunting and because of the ghostfacers. Happily the episode was well written and directed and i think supernatural isn't running out of ideas, and i am pretty sure that this TV series is going forward. The episode is different from the others because the Winchester brothers don't know each other,but Sam or both of them had dreams about their hunting trips and stuff and after their colleagues start committing suicides for no reason , they start a friendship and join a hunting trip looking for an old employee who is behind these deaths. As they have forgotten how to defeat a ghost, they go for the ghostfacers,who give them some advice which the Winchesters had given them before.
