Ohhh, this episode is soo great! One of my all-time favourites...It's even better watching it with the knowledge what will happen seasons later...You can really indulge in the various allusions...Rob Benedict as Chuck is fantastic! He was definitely destined to play this role! I love also the cover design of the supernatural books...So over the top and funny!
