i love buffy! but this episode is just crap... bad dialogues and (i can't believe i'm saying this) actually bad acting! usually i'm a big fan of the 'filler episodes' that stands for themselves, but this one is just not working... beer turns you, especially when you're underaged, into neanderthals! oh come on! the audience can take better metaphores than this, joss. and neanderthals are sooo lame! actually this episode is pretty similar to band candy, but unfortunately way inferior.
but let's not leave out the positive aspect of this episode...alyson hannigan was amazing and saved this one at least to some extent!
