Supernatural: The Benders (2006)
Really? Why do we get the crazy hillbilly episode?
Okay, I like the examination of people being monsters rather than the supernatural. What I don't like is that it is supposed to take place in Hibbing, Minnesota. It looks not even the tiniest bit like Hibbing. I live 30 minutes away from there. I know, often they don't design the set or choose to film in the actual location due to convenience. But come on. No northern Minnesotans like me would ever buy this place as Hibbing, let alone Minnesota. I think the writers just looked at a map of Minnesota and picked a name at random. Plus the crazy people all had nearly southern accents. Before I watched the episode, I prepared myself for the usual "Minnesotan accent" every Hollywood production tries to perform. But this time they skipped that attempt and went straight for "Deliverance" type accents. And why is it assumed that because we're people in Northern Minnesota, we're crazy enough to kill people for the heck of it? Why do we get that stereotype? Especially when the episode was based off of an incident that happened in Kansas? So I like the show. I like the idea. I don't like the execution. Either make it look like Hibbing, or don't call it that. Make up a name. Alter the name. And also check the name of the county. There is no such place as "Hibbing County."
