  • No one is perfect, not even Brandon Walsh.

    Another "life lesson" episode here, this time about teenage drinking. Donna has a party, and Brenda gets Brandon to go. Brandon goes there, and doesn't want to drink, but Steve spikes his drink. Not wanting to look like a wuss, Brandon acts like he is happy with Steve for doing it. Steve gets laid by Kelly, which she regrets. Anyway, round and round we go, and the twins return home. Leave it to Brenda to be an idiot, as they are almost in the clear when she hugs Cindy and Cindy smells liquor on her breath. Brenda at least covers for Brandon and tells the folks that it was just her who was drinking. Jim and Cindy then leave for Palm Springs for the weekend, and Brenda, Kelly, and Donna see the green light to have a party at the Walsh house. Brandon is completely against the prospect of this, but lets Brenda talk him into it. They agree not to drink, but now Brandon being the idiot, he breaks that pact early and often. Brandon gets hammered, and before you know it, him and Steve decide they need some more alcohol, and food. Bad idea as Brandon drinks and drives, and destroys his car, and goes to jail. Jim and Cindy return home to get him out and we get the nice little parent-child lecture etc, played brilliantly by Cindy (as usual) and big Jim does a good job too. Brandon is still feeling guilty and angry about everything and feels like drinking again, until Dylan steps in and saves the day, further cementing them as the duo that makes this series great. Dylan takes him to an AA meeting, and everything seems to be put in perspective for Brandon. Just a great episode. MVC: Brandon (6), Dylan (4), Jim (3), and Cindy (7)
