  • As Dean is about to torture Alastair, the demon taunts him, "Grasshopper, you're going to have to get creative to impress me." This is a reference to the TV series Kung Fu (1972-1975), starring David Carradine as Kwai Chang Caine, a Shaolin priest who wanders America in the 19th century. "Grasshopper" was the nickname that his mentor, Master Po, gave him.

Hey Guys,

Here is the second episode in our classic re-watch. As with VF's first choice this is one of my all-time favorites too!

Let's watch this one again and return to discuss just as we do with a new episode but this time with the benefit of being five years down the line!

I look forward to seeing what everyone thinks of this one now and I'll post my thoughts later...

SFF

Do you find this valuable?
