Did You Know?


In the prologue, Benny Sutton is sitting in his recliner watching a wild life documentary on TV about wildebeests being hunted. At the same time, he is being stalked by Clay Thompson, who has risen from his grave to kill Benny. The documentary action and narration mimic exactly what is happening in the scene as Clay stalks Benny and moves in for the kill. See more »


In February in South Dakota it is likely there would be snow. South Dakota also does not have a "storm season" in February. Storms like the one seen in the show would be more likely to occur in May/June. See more »


[Bobby and Dean take refuge from the zombies in a closet. Dean turns on the light and locks the door from the inside as the horde pound on the door]
Bobby Singer: Kind of a tight fit, don't you think?
Dean Winchester: [confident] It's all right: they're idiots; they can't pick a lock.
[the pounding immediately stops, then the zombies start picking the lock]
Bobby Singer: Don't you ever get tired of being wrong?
Dean Winchester: I'm making this stuff up as I go. Sue me.

Left 4 Dead
26 March 2010 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

One good episode in a long time! Not making fun of the series anymore...

Yeah, there is romance, there's love, there's a lot of shooting, but there's one thing: a lot of scenes like those from the game left 4 dead, it seems that Ben Edlund is a fan of the game...

Little of that good old "Dean-ish" humour with lines like: "Great, another horseman. Must be Thursday." got me to rate this episode a 7.

I hope they'll end this season by summer 'cuz I'm tired of waiting, seeing 3 more episodes and then another break...

Not the best supernatural episode, but it's worth watching it :)
