Some really interesting facts I read a few days back

Source : http://www.fanpop.com/clubs/supernatural/articles/143262/title/10-things-probably-didnt-know-about-supernatural



1.Supernatural was originally going to be called Unnatural.

2.Season One had a budget of just $20,000. This includes actor wages and the special effects budget.

3. In the Season One episode "Bugs", despite the realism of the bees in the closing scene, actual bees were not used. Actor Jared Padalecki is allergic to the fuzz that covers a bee's abdomen, instead hundreds of small robotic (and hairless!) bees were used.

4. In Season Four, Misha Collins' character Castiel wore over 80 different trench coats. This is due to the fact that at the end of each scene, Kripke insisted that the trench be burnt for 'undisclosed reasons'.

5. Dean Winchester's character was originally supposed to be of Asian origin. The CW however suggested that in order for it to be more believable, that the Winchester brothers should share the same ethnicity.

6. In the Season 3 episode "Time Is On My Side", if you freeze the frame at 24 mins 33.5 seconds, you will find a lovely photo of Supernatural creator Eric Kripke at his 24th birthday party.

7. Originally, Sam Winchester and demon Ruby were supposed to get married at the end of Season 4. However, once actors Jared and Gen (who play Sam and Ruby respectively) announced their engagement, the writers thought it would be tacky if their characters also got married so dropped the plotline.

8. Similarly, in Season Seven was supposed to feature Ruby being re-incarnated and impregnated by Sam Winchester. But the couple ruined that storyline as well.

9. Contrary to popular belief, Bobby Singer is not named after director/producer Robert Singer. He is in fact named after Reggae artist Bobby McFerrin and actor Raymond Singer.

10. If you watch the Season 5 Episode "99 Problems" backwards, you can actually hear the lyrics to Jay Z's hit song "99 Problems".


Edit : Okay so looks like all these facts are made up. Thanks to Sindhu and Mahi for clearing as I wasn't aware these are fake. So scratch that. LOL

Uhmmm I don't think any of these facts are true ...it sounds like someone wrote it as a joke ...Since Js have told the Bee story ten thousand times by now how they were the only ones on the set with the bees along with their director Kim and they were scared... again in the first Paley fest they mentioned how Bobby's name was indeed named after producer Bob Singer ... 

and there is only one Trench coat too which got stolen at the end of season 5 along with Dean's leather jacket ...the jacket couldn't be replaced since it was custom made but the trench coat was duplicated again ... and the stories about Sam and Ruby sounds stupid anyways... the winchesters were never planned to be asians their surname was supposed to be something else but since there already existed someone with that name they had to chose something else ...

Yup sure it's a joke ...

I agree, all of this is definitely made up.  I mean Season 1 had a budge of only $20,000? Impossible!!

Back in 2005, minimum wage was like $6.75. There were 22 episodes.. Let's say the cast and crew worked 8 hours/day for 176 days (8 days per episode). 

So 176 days X 8 hours = 1,408 hours Since J2 are the main cast they each should have worked at least this many hours on the season.

1,408 hours X 2 = 2,816 hours are the combined hours that J2 worked for the season.  

$6.75 per hour X 2,816 hours = $19,008

So even if J2 worked minimum wage (which is 0.000000001% likely), their combined pay for the season would be about $19,000. What about the rest of the cast and crew?

Logically and mathematically this budget is impossible, and if this fact is not true then neither is any of the others.  Besides, the two Sam-Ruby storylines seem highly unlikely.
