On February 25, 2011 the writers of Supernatural showed an episode of their masterpiece that poked a bit of fun at themselves. "The French Mistake" was an episode where the shows main stars, Sam & Dean Winchester (played by Jared Padalecki & Jensen Ackles) end up, thru 1 of the many odd occurances in the shows history, in the "real world" as they crash thru a fake glass window & find themselves on a TV show soundstage filming an episode of Supernatural. For the next hour, the show pokes fun at almost everything about the differences between the Winchester brothers, and the actors playing them, all while Sam & Dean try to work thru the fact they are nothing more than characters on a show in this world, played by a soap opera actor & a Polish guy with far too much money. They poke more fun at their side-kick co-star Misha Collins, as well as executive producer Robert "Bobby" Singer, and the shallowness of the industry as a whole. All in all, 1 of the better episodes the popular show has had in the past couple seasons.
The French Mistake had the lead for most of the voting, although it did temporarily slip behind eventual runner up "Finale" of Smallville. "Finale" finished far ahead of 3rd place challenger "The Day We Died" from Fringe. "Pilot" of Once Upon A Time was 4th, "The Skank Analysis Reflex" - The Big Bang Theory finished 5th, "Fire And Blood" from Game Of Thrones was 6th, The 2 part season finale "A Fistfull of Paintballs/For A Few Paintballs More" from Community took 7th, while "The Hot Potato Job" from Leverage finished 8th.
