Please don't ruin the show!
7 November 2008 | by (Aarhus, Denmark) – See all my reviews

I get it.

"A 'horror-show' must pay its tributes to its predecessors within the field of horror. I get it. Its funny. So let us do an episode dedicated to Frankenstein, werewolves and good old Count Dracula. That is going to be so much fun. And let us make both Winchesters seem really stupid too. LOL ROLFMAO!!!!11"

This must have been the writer of this episode's idea when he launched the idea of violating Supernatural with a stupid, dumb and mostly irrelevant episode where Supernatural goes away from all the cool things in the show and ends up being a bad comedy that is so bad that even Martin Lawrence, Chevy Chase and Bob Saget would have run away from it screaming.

Supernatural is facing a tough season 4 with Dean just coming out of Hell, and my idea is that the screen writers probably are just buying some time until they really figure out what the want to do. As a result, they mock the viewers with stupid episodes just like this when they could have given us a good old ghost story or something in the same style. One way or the other; this episode stinks. A lot.
