Supernatural: 10 Most Hated Episodes
Ask any Supernatural fan about "the racist truck" and they'll know exactly what you're talking about. Yes, this Supernatural episode features a racist killer truck killing African-American men and then vanishing into the night. It's a ridiculous concept, to say the least, and a rather difficult one to suspend your disbelief for. It's actually funny to imagine what the episode meeting for this one must've been like.
And really, with a premise that ridiculous, you really need exceptional writing in order to make the episode work. With Route 666, however, we get sloppy writing made even worse by the overacting done by one of the episode's main cast member, Cassie. While Cassie Robinson could've made for an interesting character, especially in the first Supernatural season, the horrid acting by Megalyn Echikunwoke made us glad the character never appeared in the show again.
However, while the episode is laughably bad, it's laughably bad in the way you'll only get from the earlier seasons of Supernatural — ridiculous premises and attempts to be scary that fall insanely flat. The terrible episodes of the later episodes of Supernatural are all bad because of the same reason: they're pointless boring filler, repeating the same formulas we've seen in the show over and over again.
