Once Hunter, Always Hunter
15 June 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Dean is the Sales & Marketing Director and Sam works in a cubicle of the Technical Support of a Corporation. Sam has glimpses of Dean and himself vanquishing ghosts and supernatural creatures. When the Human Resources sends an e-mail to Sam's colleague Paul Dubar, he returns stressed and commits suicide after a mistake. Then another colleague, Ian, also receives an e-mail of the HR and goes to room 1444. On the next day, he changes his behavior and also commits suicide. Sam and Dean team up to investigate the mysterious room and finds that the ghost of the founder of the company is haunting the flawed employees. In the end, Dean realizes that once hunter, always hunter.

"It's a Terrible Life" is a diversion in the mainstream of the Fourth Season, maybe to stretch the intriguing plot along the standard of 22 episodes per season to send DVD boxes for collectors like me. The unnecessary story is not bad and has a reasonable resolution. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Que Vida Terrível" ("What a Terrible Life")
