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
Beware! This post is very image heavy.
Inside the small trunk Jenny finds with the Winchester photos the following can be seen on the inside of the lid: "A.M. 1941".
Sam draws the tree at least 4 times!
When they talk to Jenny and Saeri in the kitchen, the last shot of Dean has been flipped.
All of Dean's CU shots are like this...
except for the last one. Ooops.
This scene bothered me from day one. Everything is fine until we get to Sam's CU shots.
In the medium shot, it's established that Sam is facing towards Dean, but is to his right (our left).
Edit: deej1957 has pointed out that the CU shots of Sam are actually flipped shots because Jared's mole is on the wrong side of his face.
This shot of Dean backs this up. Sam is to his right. Which means Dean has to look to his right to talk to Sam and Sam has to look his right to talk to Dean.
However, in Sam's CU he's looking to his left (our right) and you can see Dean's shoulder on the wrong side of the frame.
This CU of Dean is correct. He's looking to his right (our left).
Sam's CU...again looking in the wrong direction.
The next medium shot shows that they haven't moved. Sam is still sitting to Dean's right.
Regular Feature: Dean Door Kick: # 3: He kicks in Jenny's bedroom door.
Regular Feature: Trunk Prop: Dean props up the trunk interior on the left side as he grabs the shotgun and ax after Sam gets trapped in the house. I don't have a cap of this because the scene was just too dark and you really don't get a good look at him doing it. But if you watch the scene you'll see that he props it up on the left side.
I also know there's been some question over the scene where Sam is strangled by the lamp cord. It's been pointed out that there are shots where the cord isn't pulled tight against his neck. Watching the scene, it really didn't jump out at me and the instances where it was loose was after Sam has already lost consciousness, so it could have been a little loose at that point. If someone wants to point out the errors, if any, in this scene, I'd be happy to take another look at it. :)
Hope you enjoyed this revealing look at Home.
