Quotes

Sam Winchester: For whatever reason, our life is a TV show.
Dean Winchester: Why?
Sam Winchester: I don't know.
Dean Winchester: No, seriously. Why? Why would anybody want to watch our lives?
Sam Winchester: Well, according to the interviewer, not very many people do. Look, I'm not saying it makes sense. I'm just saying we - we've landed in some dimension where you're Jensen Ackles, and I'm something called a "Jared Padalecki."
Dean Winchester: So what, now you're Polish? Is any of this make any sense to you?

The French Mistake! I love that they make a Mel Brooks reference
25 June 2014 | by (Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

right in the title! And if you remember Blazing Saddles and its ending, you'll see how it's an accurate title for this hilarious episode. It's a walk through the mirror into another mirror etc etc. I don't want to spoil anything for y'all but please remember, TV about TV is usually lots of tongue in cheek and this is no different. If you've watched any of the Supernatural series, this episode will have you in stitches. There are cheeky references to the actors, producers, tvland, and the whole schmooze fest of it all. Seeing the characters attempt to get their heads around it was worth a chuckle. As someone also mentioned, watching the actors *try* to act was super. I guffawed through the whole scene and had to rewind. I hope you enjoy this meta universe as much as I did!
