Storyline

Balthazar meets Dean and Sam and tells that Raphael and the other angels are hunting them down and he sends the brothers to an alternate Vancouver in a parallel universe. The Winchester brothers learn that in this Vancouver, they are actors of a TV show called "Supernatural" and Sam is married with Ruby, actually the actress Genevieve Nicole Cortese Padalecki. When they make a spell to return to their universe, they also discover that magic does not work in this universe. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Robert Singer: Guys. You can't come to work on poppers. And smuggle kidneys in from Mexico. And make up your own lines as you go. You cannot make up your own lines. Good God, what about your careers?
Sam Winchester: You know what? Screw our careers, Bob.
Robert Singer: What?
Dean Winchester: You heard my brother. That's right, I said brother. Because you know what, Bob? We're not actors. We're hunters. We're the Winchesters. Always have been and always will be. And where we're from, people don't know who we are. But you know what? We matter to that world. ...

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!
