In Chicago the White Sox game was on until around midnight. Smallville was really late thus supernatural was really late also. It was about 1 am and everyone in my house was asleep so I was trying to be quiet. The first 30 minutes of this show were so funny that I literally laughed out loud numerous times. That is really rare for me when watching TV in general, let alone a horror show. I was loving this episode.

I was really interested in the death echoes and thought that they were portrayed brilliantly. I liked the Ghost Facers a lot. I liked the realistic Sam and Dean. I liked everything about the episode. Then the death happened.

It seemed completely out place in this episode and it was very creepy. I didn't really mind it, it just didn't seem to fit. The episode was so light hearted and fun and then . . . sad, gruesome and scary within seconds. The shock effect was great and really well played. I actually enjoyed this part however . . . .

The show seemed to want to go back to being funny, at the expense of the recently murdered guy. I didn't like that at all. I completely agree with what Josh and Ellen said but I didn't think about it at the time. The ending of the episode just left a bad taste in my mouth and listening to Josh and Ellens discussion made me relize why I hated it so much. These people who were supposedly this guys friends, just made a joke out of his death and were still going to go along with putting it on TV. It was just sad. I don't think the show even mentioned if the called the cops, so his body was probably still down in the basement with all the other people. That just ruined the episode for me. If the first 35minutes of the episode had held, it would have been one of my favorite episodes but the last 10 minutes or so completely ruined it for me and made it one of my least favorite.

Anyway, thanks for the great podcast, I am looking forward to the one about the most recent episode, the long distance call one or what ever it was called. Seriously, this is the best Supernatural podcast hands down.

I totally agree, someone had to die to save them but why the sweet kid? It should've been one of the two Ghostfacers. They get it but they just don't care. Anyway, I'm so glad you guys are back on as well. Looking forward to the rest of Season 4.

This is one of the funiest podcasts you have recorded. I think I laughed even more listening to you two than when watching the actual episode. Thank you so much for your hard work!
