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.
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 image heavy.
Here's a look at the journal page with Elkins's phone number. Interesting how on this page the name is "Elkin" and in the episode it's "Elkins". I couldn't find any K. Johnson in the crew list, but there is a Ted Bradford, who is a driver for the show.
Continuity Error: When John surprises the boys in the car, the driver's side window keeps changing position throughout the scene.
It's rolled up all the way when the boys are just looking at the envelope.
When John appears (you can see his reflection on the glass) it's still rolled all the way up.
As John gets in the backseat, the window is suddenly rolled part way down.
By the time John leaves the car, the window is rolled all the way down. If you look really close, you can see just a bit of the glass above the edge of the door.
However, in the reverse shot of John, the window is still rolled up part way.
Back on the boys, and the window is rolled all the way down again.
Sam behind the wheel: Sam gets to drive the car a lot in this episode!
Continuity Error: When Luther is holding the Colt, his hand changes positions between camera angles.
Ooops: When Sam gets into the arguement with John on the road, you can see a stage light in the background.
Regular Feature: Trunk Prop Dean props up the trunk interior on the left side.
A look at John's weapon collection. Which is very similar to the one we see Sam use in "Mystery Spot" from S3.
Continuity Error: When Sam runs out of the vampire nest barn, he's holding a machete in his right hand, but in the next shot of him and Dean running in the woods, his hands are empty.
Continuity Error: When Dean comes back with the bottle of DMB, he enters and puts the keys in his left jacket pocket and then appears to remove the bottle of blood from his left pocket. The shot then cuts to a wide shot and he's seen putting the keys in his left pocket again and then getting out the bottle from the right.
When Dean's acting as bait, messing with the car before Kate approaches, he apparently touches something hot or icky, because he pulls his hand back fast. Heh.
The car Kate and the new vampire gal take off in looks similar to the car Bobby is seen driving in the S3 premiere "The Magnificent Seven".
Hope you enjoyed this revealing look at Dead Man's Blood.
