Supernatural: Call of Casthulhu
Bobby and the boys keep an eye out for unlikely plot twists.
Supernatural dives into the Lovecraft mythos, sort of, but there's nary a non-Euclidean angle or tentacled monstrosity in sight. We feel cheated. We suppose it's good we weren't driven to madness by the Elder Gods... but we're a wee bit worried about the Younger God. The thought of Cas as an insane deity is a little much to take, you know?
Lovecraft, you idjit!
OK, some background. Once upon a time, there was a writer named H.P. Lovecraft, and his stories were awesome. Seriously, go read them. You've got a summer off from Supernatural, and what else are you going to do, go outside? Feh!
ANYway. Lovecraft was obsessed with opening doors to other dimensions. One day, at a dinner party, he and his friends did just that. (We'll stick to Trivial Pursuits as our after-dinner entertainment, okay?) They cracked open purgatory, and something fell out. This particular something took up residence in Lovecraft's maid and then spent the next year killing everyone involved. Then -- after sending the meatsuit's son to the looney bin -- she settled down to the life of a medieval studies professor and occasional bedmate of Bobby Singer. Yup, Professor Visyak, the woman who had the dragon-killing sword, is a former resident of purgatory.
