Gypsies, Cramps and Fleas (#6.8)
21 December 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Halloween episodes are pretty fun to see the costumes. Clare's was good with her Jeanie, so was Brandon's Godfather. Susan would be hunted with torches these days for wearing a Pocahontas.

The love potion story is of course very silly but David and Valerie were so cute. I laughed when Valerie told him that there is no such thing as a love potion. And it wasn't them who got it anyways.

Man Ray was a creep in this episode again, spying with that mask. Good for Donna that other guy helped her out. I doubt she will forgive Ray cheating. She didn't forgive it to David and he was a much better guy who never beat her up.

Loved the cute little black cat there. he was the best thing of that Dylan and Toni story. I don't see how anyone would turn against her father for a "love" they just met.
