This happens to be the second time in four days I'm catching "Scarecrow." Last weekend I went to an event held at the Directors Guild in Los Angeles to find out what the cast and crew had to say about this show I've grown quite fond of. It was all part of the William S. Paley Television Festival, which the Museum of Television & Radio presents every year. Creator Eric Kripke chose to screen "Scarecrow" because it has so many great elements, like the spooky monster-of-the-week, dysfunctional drama, some nice comedic touches and the introduction of one of the big bads Meg Masters. All I'll say is that it was cool watching it on a big screen with a fierce sound system. And the cast, along with Kripke and various other executive producers, writers and directors, were hilarious during the Q&A session.
First, there's something I wanted to nitpick about because I was obviously enthralled by all the goodness when this episode originally aired in January. I wish there had been more of a mention of Sam and Dean's "Asylum" incident. However, we did get some continuation of the "Dean's blind faith to Big Daddy Winchester" conflict, so at least that was something. Highlights: The tense breakup; the awesome cell-phone conversation of love make-up; and trusty geek boy having to tell Dean he stole a car so that he could save his pain-in-the-ass bro. Top 5 favorite lines: 1) "Dude, you fugly." 2) "They're gonna kill us? Sacrifice us... which is, I don't know, classier I guess?" 3) "You trust shady van guy and not me?" "Definitely." 4) "Hope your apple pie is freakin' worth it!" 5) "So dad is sending us to Indiana to to go hunting for something before another couple vanishes? Yahtzee."
