Xander: Things a lot better, I see.
Buffy: I don't think tonight's gonna be good for videos, Xand.
Xander: Right, with the wailing and the crying. Still better than a cozy evening with Spike. Shall I order a pizza? Don't teens in a snit like pizza?

Rip-Off and to make things worse a rip-off of something good
4 July 2010 | by (Valhalla) – See all my reviews

This is THE WORST EPISODE OF BTVS. The reasons are it copied off the classic idea of "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered" only this has just Dawn, Buffy, Anya and Willow and a few cheerleaders wanting RJ. Dawn trying to impress RJ (yep that is his name) would have to be the worst piece of writing these "writers" have ever done. I Had to take breaks in between watching this. If only the last Series Of Buffy Were more like the last Series Of Angel it's superior, yep EVEN ANGEL TURNED INTO A PUPPET WAS BETTER THAN THIS. I have the final series of both Buffy and Angel on DVD I showed a small part to this to a friend and he said "it's a comedy" well Ha Ha very sick joke Drew Z Greenberg. So If you have this Season of BtVS on DVD and you come across this episode Please skip it.

I thought the Worst episode out of The Series Was Ted (for those of you who haven't been following the series think Stepfather combined with Terminator) but this makes Ted look like "Angel." (Series and episode) The only thing that was close to funny in this is when Xander has a flashback of Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered and when it finishes he has a huge smile on his face. My vote is 1
