I never thought it would happen...

...but for the first time in 89 episodes Supernatural has let me down. I've just finished watching 'The Curious Case' and I found both the story line and the directing faulty. It had nothing of either the quirk or the drama that, by now, I am used to expect from Supernatural. It was like, given the fact that the idea behind the episode was so good, they were trying too hard to make it funny and did not succeed, being left, at times, with scenes out of place(the jumping in front of the cars, the spell cast on Sam, the digging of the body-why were they digging a body, anyhow?!). Also, even for the scenes that might have made sense, it was like jumping from one to the next without any real connectors. All in all, I was left with the impression that Jensen Ackles might have told the script writers that he needs to take a personal day and they had to woop up, at a moment's notice, a teleplay for an episode without him, and they just didn't have time to polish it. One thing I am sure of: if I can watch the previous episodes time and again, this is the one exception that will remain at one viewing only.
