Trivia:
In 2014, a Details Magazine interviewer asked Wentworth Miller about his experience playing a "fish monster" in this episode, his first onscreen acting job. Miller responded: "Honestly, I was completely out of my depth and doing whatever I could to keep up. They glued this prosthetic piece covered with scales to my chest. Then there was a piece over it that looked like human skin. I had to peel through the top layer to reveal the beast within. Deep into the third hour of this, the makeup artist says to me, 'We only have one of these pieces to tear through, so you need to get this right.' Hollywood can be a deeply strange place."See more »

some thoughts on vampires, drugs and blood-sucking, 3 January 2008
Author: lumlan from Sweden

//Also, I think that this may be the only time that we see a vampire tasting drugs in someone's system. Why is that never mentioned again? Is Angelus tasting the monster-y fish thing that's about to emerge or the steroids themselves? If vampire's can really taste drugs, then it's a shame Spike doesn't test Buffy like that when she thinks that she's in a mental institution in season six's "Normal Again." Or when Riley's all pumped full of super-pills in season four's "The 'I' In Team." Just a thought.//

Actually, in "School Hard" Spike bragged that he'd been at Woodstock and fed of a flower person, and then spent the next six hours watching his hand move. Hm. This doesn't tell us if he TASTED the drugs or if he merely got affected by them. Perhaps it wasn't the taste of drugs that made Angelus spit out the blood, because, you know, maybe these swimmer boys had changed so much from the "drugs" that they no longer had human blood. Human blood, fish blood, pig blood... big difference.
