That's why I like Supernatural so much
15 November 2009 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

I actually liked this episode. It was both innovative and old fashioned, as it gave up a glance to the old hunts we've been used in the first seasons. Only a show like Supernatural could put its main characters into a convention of the show itself! I figure this episode as a sort of "direct line" with the authors, with them telling the watchers their point of view, as a way to express their concern about the show developing the best way.

The thing I like the most about Supernatural is that I've never felt the urge to make things go in a different way, just like writing fan fiction, I never sensed I would be able to develop better the plot if I were an author; I really like the story and I don't think that if the show is really going to end next year, they will ever jump the shark!
