Though we are not under contract with the WGA or SAG-AFTRA, out of respect for their mutual strikes we are going on hiatus to stand in solidarity with the writers and actors whose work we so deeply admire.  We recorded this episode as a way to celebrate the incredible contributions of the Supernatural writing staff.  While it does technically discuss struck work, we believe it is in the spirit of promoting the writers and their cause.

This is definitely not an exhaustive list!  Many of the hallmarks we praise in this episode are the result of a collaborative effort on the part of the entire Supernatural writing team, not just individual writers.  Together they created the show that we love so dearly. :)
