The Trickster
16 July 2008 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Sam and Dean are upset with each other and they call Bobby to help them in their investigation in the campus of the Crawford Hall College. When the professor of Ethics and Morality falls from the window of his room, they discover that an urban legend tells that the place has been haunted for thirty years by a student. Then, a pledge master claims that he has been abducted and abused by aliens and a research scientist is eaten by an alligator in the sewers. Bobby advises that all of these supernatural events are actually the work of a Trickster that has the power to make real whatever he wants.

I found "Tall Tales' not funny, and actually a little boring. The disagreement of Dean and Sam, telling different versions of the same story, is annoying. The conclusion is the greatest part of this below average show. My vote is seven.

Title (Brazil): "Exagerado" ("Exxagerated")
