Storyline

The students must study for standardized (SAT) tests and sell candy for the school band's new uniforms, even gang members who aren't in the band, but it's concocted by mayor Richard Wilkins's partner, Mr. Trick, and his subcontractor Ethan Rayne's men. Buffy lies to everyone so she can visit Angel, who is nearly normal again, just weak. Giles and ma Joyce Summers find out they are abused as false alibis but just send Buffy to bed, then work out a coordinated schedule for her and become close. The spiked candy turns adults into uninhibited, irresponsible 'teenagers'. Realizing vampires should be swarming, Buffy knocks their demonic intention out of Ethan... Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

At 23:50, as Buffy drives towards the camera, to the right of her car in the background you can plainly see a mobile lighting tower, parked at an angle to the curb with its mast extended up out of frame. It supplies all the illumination for the scene, backlighting the trees Buffy is passing and casting a dense shadow underneath her car. It can be seen again when Buffy has her auto accident, parked at the curb in the distance. See more »

The One With The Band Candy...
21 October 2014 | by See all my reviews

I love this episode so much. It's definitely one of my all time favorite episodes, and probably in the Top 3 for Season 3.

In this episode, Buffy and her classmates have to sell some band candy to raise money for the band. I don't see why they have to. They're not in the band. Why can't the band members sell it. Oh, I know. Because Principle Snyder is a douche how assigns tasks to people who shouldn't be doing, nor deserve, to do those tasks. Stop it Snyder! You're mean! Anyway, they have to sell the band candy. And it turns out that everyone who eats it, sort of reverts back into a teenager. You should see Giles and Joyce. Giles is a kind of thug, and Joyce is just a cliché. This was the plan of the Mayor. He needs to sacrifice babies to a demon, so that the demon will be on his side, or something. So making people into teenagers who don't care, is a good opportunity to steal babies from the hospital.

Overall, I give this episode a 10 out of 10.
