'Supernatural' took a page from 'Hercules: The Legendary Journeys' this week, and had actors playing the roles of the creative team behind the show.

In "Hollywood Babylon", it was Regan Burns as the producer, "McG", when Dean and Sam visited Hollywood.

They provided me a way to disable any Zonks that have to do with 'Gilmore Girls' as well. While on the studio tour, they got to see the set used as a stand-in for Stars Hollow, Connecticut. So for some reason, in Toobworld the "real-life" Lorelei and Rory Gilmore have a TV show about their lives. That's going to be a big help for the splainins around here!

The movie being made during the episode was "Hell Hazers II" and a trailer for that film was presented as though it was an actual commercial. Not as elaborate a tie-in as HBO's "Making Cleaver" documentary in connection with 'The Sopranos', but in its own way the commercial was tighter and more believable. A little goes a long way.....

Which reminds me - there were four other new fictional movies added to the film library of Toobworld, thanks to last week's episode of '30 Rock':

1] "The President's Wife"
2] "Moonquest: Quest For The Moon"
3] "Speaking Of Emily"
4] "The Boy Made Of Corn"

I wonder if "Speaking Of Emily" was in reference to Emily Mortimer guest-starring these last two weeks on the show as Phoebe, who suffers from avian bone disease? (An ailment to add to the Toobworld medical dictionary? Or is it real?)
