I’m not sure if it was adjustment to the new night, or my mental state due to a bad sinus cold, but this episode didn’t really do it for me. Even the banter between the Brothers Winchester didn’t really strike me as particularly substantial. I like the fact that they can relax enough around each other to pull pranks, but since I prefer the more conflicted psychology between Sam and Dean, I wasn’t as interested in the wacky.

I also wasn’t particularly fond of the idea of mocking “ghost hunters”. I will be the first to admit that there are a lot of people running around out there with no clue what they’re doing when it comes to investigating unusual phenomena. Many probably look and act the way the characters in this episode did. That’s all well and good, except that I got the distinct feeling that the writers were portraying all paranormal investigators as geeks without a clue.

From a personal perspective, I happen to listen to a few podcasts with established paranormal investigators and I’m quite the fan of “Ghost Hunters”, which is a show based on the investigations carried out by TAPS, a group with strong credentials and integrity.
