One of the best
28 November 2012 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

This is simply one of the best episodes I've ever seen from ANY TV SHOW! W O W!!!!! Supernatural overall for me has taken a small fall the latest seasons. But this episode is simply amazing. You don't even have to be a Supernatural fan to watch this episode. Pure brilliance! The episode doesn't contribute much if there is a deeper plot at play, but the episode itself is insane. I can't wait to watch the next one and if they keep bringing insane episodes like this. This show will become even more of a favorite for me! I'm so glad I stayed up to watch it. The episode contains humor, fun, mystery and a nice twist to the Supernatural universe. One of the reasons why I love Supernatural as a show generally is that it doesn't take itself too seriously. They find room for these lights of genius and it really makes the show grow!

Thanks, Tronni
