    Glad I didn't miss it. Why was it preempted, anyway?

    Technically it wasn't preempted, it was a repeat of "Dead in the Water", but as to why...Good question. You'd think during the week of Halloween they'd want to show a Supernatural ep. Ghouls and goblins and other things that go bump in the night would be perfect.

    I'm guessing maybe they were saving new episodes for November Sweeps???

    I'd say they're probably saving eps for sweeps but I don't pretend to know what goes on in a TV exec's head.

    You mean TV Exec's heads have things going on in them? I just thought they were empty. Sortta like balloons! Because some of their deicisions make no sense.

    Anyway...I agree that the week of Halloween you'd think that there'd be a brand spankin' new episode of Supernatural. Instead we get the boy in the lake story.

    LOL! For a second I thought you said buggered. I was thinking, "Dude! I totally wanna see that!" But bugs... yeah, bugs are OK.

    Just hope it isn't a War of the Coprophages thing. Or that story I read about the ants. Or the Bugmeister.

    Gonna tag the bugs ep. Although if anyone wants to flag a mod to add spoiler warnings to the subject line, that'd be peachy, too.

    Spoiler:
    Yeah, time passed WAY too fast. Major cop out on the part of the writers.

    Also, why the hell didn't they lock themselves in a room and seal THAT off instead of standing around in a big open space staring stupidly at the fireplace? And then they run to the ATTIC??! How impractical is THAT?!

    Watching them get attacked by the swarm the first time was OK, then it got tedious. Come on, guys, you can do better than that.

    I'd also like to know why only insects? If Nature itself is supposed to rise up, I'd like to see the birds, raccoons, sewer-dwelling crocodiles, man-eating plants and some psychotic squirrels getting into the mix, too.


    It had its moments. The running joke about "regardless of sexual orientation" was funny. I'm a bit surprised the bug spray wasn't Die Bug Die, but oh well. The way it all played out seemed a little too similar to other things for my tastes, though.

    The show needs to take more chances, dammit. Stop playing with the safe, cutesy little stories and dig deeper. There's potential here, if only they'd use it.

    And damn them for not giving us a towel-clad Dean fresh from the shower.

    Oh, don't even get me started on the ridiculous amounts of evidence they leave behind every time they go near a crime scene. Obviously, neither of them watch CSI or they'd know better than to go trampling all over things. They destroy evidence, too. Just because THEY know it's "supernatural" causes doesn't mean that the police will.

    Their father trained them in all kinds of ridiculous things, why not teach them how NOT to destroy a crime scene?? Heck, I should think forensics would be an important part of monster hunting. Not ALL of the things they chase are non-corporeal ghosts.

    Agree with all of the criticisms above. That was the fastest night ever. I did enjoy the parts where Sam was talking about his relationship with his Dad and the sexual orientation gag was amusing. I was watching the ep through my fingers half the time though because I can't handle bugs. Spiders are just right out. Yuck.

    I could not believe the ending! The bugs started coming out at 12a.m. ish, and as they are fending them off up in the attic, the sun comes out already after a short bout??????? I guess we have to use our imagination in time laspe and pretend that 6 hours went by -- hmm, that's a long time for that 'bug spray' can to have lasted though.

    At first I thought that is was the Native American guy they had talked to that was doing something to lift the curse but then I realized that the sun had come up and I was like WTF that was a short night, the housing development must have been close to the artic cricle where the nights are about 2 hours long.

    What was the purpose to lighting the bug spray on fire? Sure it looked cool but wouldn't regular bug spray work just as well as fire?

    Next week looks good though.

    When the sunlight started pouring through the holes in the roof, I actually tried to think of a scientific explanation for the sun to rise in the middle of the night. Like, maybe some ultra-rare ultra bizarre eclipse thing. Frankly, that would probably have made more sense than the massive time cut the ep took.

    And the bug spray- first of all, shouldn't any aerosol-type things work? Those cleaners and whatnot? Or were those squeeze sprayers? I didn't actually notice.

    How was he lighting it, anyway? Did he have a lighter I didn't see?

    I wonder how toxic flaming bug spray is to humans. Especially in a confined space.

    it was an amusing ep.

    the best part about it, and perhaps this isn't saying much, is that they actually took a few minutes to develop the father/sons brother/brother aspect...

    whether we meet the father next week or at any time this season...they need to do more development of the actual characters.
    Thanks!

    I didn't even bother to think of any explanation when I saw the sunlight pouring in...all I remember is saying to myself "Oh man, you got to be kidding".

    Bug spray: Yeah, anything that's flammable would do. I believe I did see him with a lighter and holding it up to the can in one of the scenes.

    Yeah, them fumes would be toxic to humans I'd imagine in high concentrations.

    I hate to cut the show like this, but they really should be more 'realistic' on the things that they show. Such things can make or break the show with loyal fans if it starts to get cheezy.

    I'm really looking forward to next weeks episode. As for the bug episode. I'm soooo disappointed. If they had just had an episode about the burgeoning relationship between the two brothers it would have been better. It was so cliche. I couldn't help but make fun of it. I mean building on a cursed Indian burial ground? Come on! At least give it a unique twist. Give these boys something to work with!
    Sorry I'm done venting now. Oh yeah... Except for that short night thing. I also was thinking it was a flood light or a weird reverse eclipse. That would have made more sense!

    Anyways, like I said... looking forward to next weeks episode. Looks like we get to see some Dean angst.

    The development of the Father story line was good and the Fact that Dean was on the phone saying that he really needed his father's help was good to see we might acually get into original story lines now

    This gets said after every ep and so far, I'm not seeing much originality.

    There's a good show buried in all the fluff, but they pile on so many cliches and ridiculous storylines that it's hard to keep track of the grains of good stuff that leak through.

    Not sure if this has been mentioned, but did this episode remind anyone of that movie with Lucy Lawless on CBS a while ago something?

    By the way Shadow, who is ur avatar? i've seen that picture somewhere, but i have no idea who the person is.
