I'd like to think of this as an in-depth look into Supernatural. It's a collection of interesting observations, continuity errors, goofs, filmmaking techniques, statistics, important (or not so important) information, trivia, and anything else that struck me as unusual.
In which episode did Dean first kick in a door?
How many episodes has Sam been the coffee boy?
In which episodes can you see a crew member or the camera?
When do Jared & Jensen do their own stunts and when do we see their stunt doubles?
You'll learn the answers to these questions and many more.
I'll be examining each episode in order, one at a time. Some of the info. will probably be well known to most of you, but I hope to point out some new discoveries as well.
All the caps in these posts are my own. While most of these will not be suitable for other uses, due to my cropping and highlighting, you're free to take any that you like. All I ask is that you give me credit for them. Thanks! :D
Scene of Sam & Jess asleep: There's an easel set up with a drawing on it. Was Jess an artist?
Regular Feature: Trunk Prop: Dean props up the trunk interior on the right side. You would think this would be normal, considering Dean's right handed, but we'll see in other episodes where he'll occasionally prop it up on the left side.
Jensen drives the Impala from the station.
Continuity Error: As the boys drive up to the bridge for the first time, in the interior car shot of Dean you can see that the back window is part way down, but in the next shot as they park, the window is all the way down just like the driver's side window is.
ID seen in cigar box: FBI Special Agent that's signed Dean Winchester. You'll also notice that the photos are from Jensen's Dawson Creek days. :)
Edit: Jan. 27, 2008 - I can't believe I forgot to include this bit. I've got a thing for Dean's door kicks, so I've been keeping track of them. I totally forgot about this first one until I was looking through my caps today.
Regular Feature: Dean Door Kick: # 1 The first of many! It's like Dean's signature move. Why use your shoulder to bust through a door when kicking it down is so much cooler. And how fitting is it that the first door we see him kick in is when he rushes in to save his little brother.
Hope you enjoyed this revealing look at the Pilot.
