  • An obvious parody of Hollywood coupled with Topanga taking care of a pair of ill brothers does well.

    This episode is one of my favorite BMW episodes. Eric acts in a Shakespearean play and thanks to some reviews he thinks he has what it takes to make it big in Hollywood. I love how they parody BMW by having Eric join the cast of "Kid Gets Acquainted with Universe" with actors such as Ben Sandwich, whose brother is Bread Sandwich, and Snyder Strong. They tie it together at the end of the episode by having the same tube sock incident that was in the scene Eric was supposed to act in on KGAWU.

    This episode parodies Hollywood in many ways; Shakespearean actors turning sitcom stars, older actors playing younger characters, sweet & innocent characters played by egotistical maniacs. It is very obvious, but it is still cute and funny.

    The side story where Shawn and Jack get the chicken pox is important in showing how much Topanga is willing to salvage/create a relationship with Shawn, her estranged boyfriend's best friend.
