Decent episode, although figuring out what that other hunter did was a no-brainer. And I expect he'll return later this season as an enemy.

I thought it was a fairly good episode. I liked the ironic (possibly on purpose) casting of Amber Benson, formerly of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, as a vampire. I think it's an interesting storyline that there are other Hunters out there and that some of them, like Gordon, may not be entirely stable.

I thought this was a less than average episode. Nice twist having the human be the "bad guy" and the vampires being the "good guys". But I don't think it was a great overall episode.

My favorite part was the reveal of the restored Impala. I know they already used Back in Black from AC/DC last year, but I don't think they could have picked a better song for that scene. That had to be the best "Hell Ya!" moment from the series to date.

good episode, although I thought the chick vamp was going to tear up Sam when he was carrying her out of the house.

I didn't love this episode. Too politically correct. The brothers are now responsible if any human is killed by those vamps. I hope this show doesn't become buffy like with dozens of "good" demons which made the show dumb.

I have to agree that the above scene was the best part of the episode. I didn't particularly care much about the episode but I think it paved for some things to come in the future. Nice to see Amber Benson on TV again though.

I thought this was one of the better episodes in awhile. Good character developent in Dean. I did a little happy dance when Tara from Buffy showed up, as I was wondering if they were going to throw in a Buffy/Angel reference or cameo.

And yeah, the opening scene with Back in Black playing and the boys back in the Impala was a great moment.

Buffy had better writing, better stories, better dialogue and better characters. If Buffy is dumb then Supernatural is retarded.

Care to name these "dozens of good demons" on Buffy? Aside from Clem who eats kittens (which makes his goodness a bit debatable. ) who are they? Anya doesn't count. She became human and she was an very evil demon. Demon Giles definitely doesn't count, because that was a spell. Spike with a chip doesn't count, because the first thing he tried to do when he thought his chip wasn't working to was to kill a young girl. So, who are these "dozens of good demons" exactly?

It's been awhile since I've gone through the series, so my memory needs refreshing.

i like the show.....not a terrible episode. but they did write the boys a bit 'high and mighty'.

might be nice if they run down all of the vampire mythology they choose to use on the show. i remembered the dead man's blood thing....but i'm not sure they've explored daylight...or garlic...or holy water, etc.?? maybe daylight in the first episode....

and it was nice to see tara. and i do think we'll see the vamp hunter again. and hopefully amber benson as well. i like the 'freak of the week' with the story arch back story of finding the demon that killed dad. perhaps amber can assist them later in the season killing a demon or two.

next episode looks good.

I certainly hope the hunter returns. Also, I'm really glad they aren't trying to follow their dad around anymore, that got a little old.

Agreed. Oh, sabre....

The only "friendly" demons were really on Angel than on Buffy see Cordelia, Lorne, Allyria and Doyle. But considering the title character is a "friendly demon", wouldn't you kind of expect that?

On "Dead Man's Blood" from season 1, their father said that sunlight hurts them (like a bad sunburn), but doesn't kill them. I also think believe he said that beheading is the only way to kill a vampire in the Supernatural universe. I'm not sure what effect, if any, garlic or holy water would have.

i remembered some of that....that coulda done a little blurb though...just for me. but no, instead they decide to leave me confused between the buffyverse, ultraviolet, blade, x-files (the pistacchio thing always cracks me up) and supernatural. oh...and that one vamp show that lasted one season, but i thought was really good - the kindred.

No Forever Knight?

I actually own all three seasons on DVD, but haven't ever seen the show. My wife wanted it and we still have to get to it at some point. She says its good, so I hope she's right.
