My favourite episodes from "Supernatural"

The Season Six premiere of the show Supernatural happens this Friday Sept. 24th, entering into a new era, Post-Apocalypse if you will.   This is a short retrospective of my favourite highlights of the past five seasons:

Some of my Favourite Episodes:

-Caution these blurbs contain some spoilers-

Season One-
Phantom Traveller:  Having a demon that tried to crash airliners was an interesting twist to the plot that played on fears of air travel.
Home:  The first thread in unravelling the Winchester family plot line.
Asylum:  Looking back the fight scene in this episode could be prelude to the final showdown in season five.
Scarecrow:  The first of several episode where they go head to head with pagan gods.  It was also the introduction of Meg.
Faith:  The first time we see the Reapers.
Hell House:  The introduction of Harry Spangler and Ed Zeddmore.

Season Two-
In My Time of Dying:  Sets up the entire Season Two in motion and subplots that lead into other seasons.
No Exit:  What happens when serial killers don't die.
The Usual Suspects:  With a clever guest star in Linda Blair and a great ghost story, it makes for a cool episode.
