    Changing Channels (508)

    SAM AND DEAN GET STUCK IN TV HELL — The Trickster (guest star Richard Speight Jr) throws Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) into an alternate universe where they are characters in different television series, including a sexy medical show, a Japanese game show, a forensics show and a sitcom. The brothers realize the only way to get out of this world is to play along and become the characters in the shows. However, Castiel (Misha Collins) appears and warns them this universe is dangerous and they must get out before they become trapped. Charles Beeson directed the episode with teleplay by Jeremy Carver

      OMG, this episode rocked! After a rough day today, I needed a few good laughs. This episode delivered in spades in that regard. Funny as hell, and it moved the Apocalypse storyline along nicely. I never expected the Trickster to turn out to be a fallen archangel.

            Spoiler:
            No love for Bobby though. When they made the deal to get Castiel back they could have also gotten Bobby his legs back

              Holy crap! That is the first thing that came to mind when finding out that the Trickster is Gabriel after all. Just whoa! It was interesting seeing an archangel who'd been around humanity a lot and a different view about the situation with the angels. "Sunday dinner" Poor Gabriel, but that doesn't mean he had the right to mess around with people like that, but I guess having left home made him tainted. Though honestly I was expecting that it was Zachariah behind the whole thing, so when it was all revealed, I flailed.
              The episode was funny, Dean's guilty pleasure of watching a day time hospital drama. And then having to play along with all the TV shows. I didn't quite catch though what the question was that they asked Dean during Nutcracker, can someone enlighten me, please?

                  not word for word but this is what he asked

                  If Sam was never born would your mother and father still be alive?

                    This episode was phenomenal, delivering that perfect balance between laughs and good ol' fashioned mythology. There'll never be a better "grouping" of funny and yet dark episodes then the Trickster/Gabriel trio we've had so far. Thinking back to Mystery Spot upon Gabriel's reveal made that episode a lot better - in that, the Trickster's motivation for isolating Sam from Dean made sense (I love retcons!)

                    The humour was spectacular, from Sam's spot-on CSI: Miami spoofing, and the Grey's Anatomy stuff was priceless. The earnest Ellen Piccolo's interactions with Sam were brilliant, especially her confession of her love and his reaction.

                      I think thats all of the major arch-angels so far! I don't know if this is a spoiler or rumor but someone said something about God walking around. It would be interesting to see how they show him if the rumor is true.

                        Loved this episode. The Trickster is Gabriel, i so did not see that one coming. I always liked the Trickster, nice to see an angel with a sense of humour.

                        I must say that the Heavenly family is seriously screwed up. Dad's missing, the two elder brothers are trying to kill each other and Gabriel's gone pagan. I'm wondering about Gabriel's comment that it isn't about a war but about two brothers turning against each other, and that the angels new what was going to happen the moment God "turned on the light". Was Lucifer lying when he said that the reason he fell was because he refused to bow down to mankind? What i got from the whole conversation is that things hadn't been going very well in Heaven even before humanity was created, and maybe even that humanity was created with the purpose of ending this fued.

                        I'm hoping to see Gabriel again. Dean is right he's taking the easy way out walking away from his familly because he can't stand to see his brothers trying to kill each other.

                          This episode had me rolling. Any catch the herpes medication commercial? That rocked.

                          I'm not sure how I feel about the retcon of the trickster into Gabriel. I liked the trickster standing on his own, rather than being an archangel messing with people.

                          It was interesting that the fight between Michael and Lucifer is now being played out between Dean and Sam. But the only difference is humans have free will. I'm wondering when God will show up, the angels make such a big deal about god having disappeared that I would be sorely disappointed if god didn't show up in some fashion.

                            Ho-ly. CRAP!! Need time to process the magnificence that is now my favourite episode of the season so far. As usual, won't have computer time over the weekend, but I expect to come back with a post that will challenge the length of my usual ones! ...unless of course you all make my points for me before then and save me the carpal tunnel!

                            Freakin' brilliant episode. Kripke is a genius.

                              This is really just what i think

                              but i think with what Gabriel was saying about feuding brothers and god the father it made me wonder if they will bring in god and he will look like Sam and Dean's dad
