Nice episode...waste of time for the series...
18 November 2009 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This episode was hilarious, why? It's simple: Supernatural fan convention, and that includes:

-parkinglot full of '67 Impala Chevy's

-bunch of douche-bags dressed up like, using same words like...Dean and Sam get's better as the two Winchesters find out that there's an actual hunting...and they do the hunting very old-school(seasons 1 and 2 like)diggin',salt,gasoline and lighter...all that with a little help from some Sam and Dean wannabes.

Oh by the way you should watch this episode for that crucial information Sam gets...

Anyway, what i really want to say is that this kind of episodes are here just to fill in the season because the writers routined us with seasons of 22 episodes and perhaps they could end this season in 3 eps but tending to respect the rule they're draggin it with episodes like this.And they usually tend to reveal only one information, for example:

In "The curious case of Dean Winchester"-what Bobby looks for

In "Changing Channels"-who the Trickster is...

Or now-where that "particular item" they're searchin' for might be...

"Rise and shine Sammy! Rise and shine..."
