  • One of my favorite episodes.

    This is one of my all time favorite episodes, because it is absolutley hilarious. How realistic is it that a group of teens drink what they think is alcohol and then have mock side effects?! It just goes to prove that the "drunk act" has been around for quite some time and will most likely never die.

    I also enjoyed Sam and his friend's panic over the possibilty of a party after seeing a documentary on the effects of alcohol. They try so hard to do what they think is right, and do succeed in their quest, however, not completely. The party still spirals out of control and Neil ends up being the only one who truly gets "tanked."

    I hate that this show is no longer on the air. The writing was excellent, and the characters were very believable. I can only hope that someday some network will pick up this series and run the episodes so that I can enjoy them again.
