Mediocre episode of a totally different show?
5 January 2014 | by (Michigan, USA) – See all my reviews

...because it was a truly awful one of Supernatural. If I didn't know the writers credited for this episode have credits on episodes dating all the way back to the first season (including some I really liked), I'd accuse them of never having watched the show before. The "witch community" featured in the episode a) comes out of nowhere, and b) isn't consistent with what we've seen of witches on Supernatural at any point in the preceding 7.5 seasons... was this a script for a different show where witches do hang out in an underground bar and sling lightning bolts around?

And even if that were the case, putting it back into its "native habitat" wouldn't erase some highly troubling things pertaining to the character Portia.

If I were advising a friend who was starting the show from the beginning, I'd probably point out a few other episodes that fell a little flat and could probably be skipped. This is the one I'd tell them outright not to waste 40 minutes on. It gets a 3 based on "production wasn't too bad", but I kind of want my time back.
