Trivia:
In the first draft of the script, the infamous "Pudding!" line and pants dropping act was done by Sam. However, when they went to shoot Jared Padalecki and Jensen Ackles, Sam and Dean respectively, changed it to Dean on the spot without telling anyone because they felt it fit his character better.See more »

Let's talk about our problems, 22 January 2010
Author: Cardboard Mike from Canada

So this episode of Supernatural involves the boys helping out an old friend in an insane asylum (taking a break from the hunting down Lucifer/finding God story line), where, after starting their hunt, they start questioning their own sanity and are forced to confront other deep seated issues.

I was disappointed with this episode. After the long break, I was hoping for a good way to jump back into the season. I found the story line to be ill conceived, and not well thought out. It was all over the place. The script was barely believable at best. There were a few weak attempts at humour, and even fewer and much weaker attempts at soul searching moments, in an episode which had great potential for the latter. Come on, an asylum chock full of psychiatrists? Even though I have a tendency to squirm during the "mushy" stuff, I was hoping for some proper insight into the fascinating characters of the Winchesters.

A last frustration: they never develop the story line of the mysterious "friend of Dad's who needs help and we owe him". Really? It's an "I wonder: what exactly *did* happen in Albuquerque?" kind of moment? I found that quite contrived.

However, this is just a bump in the fantastic road I'm sure Supernatural will lead us down soon enough.
