Novel idea but creepy
30 April 2018 | by blackmagpie-62368See all my reviews

As a story line there is none, the Winchester brothers are used as bait by their "friend" Castiel resulting in many innocent people dying for nothing.

This is presented in a very novel way that will make your head spin but a little too warped for me, I like to watch actors and the characters they create not the actual people behind the scenes. Not comfortable with the whole Jared/Jensen thing or the crew dying at the end although I can see the appeal.
