During the first season every episode was based directly on a controversial issue. While most episodes still do this, it is not a focusing point. This episode focuses on underage drinking and dating.
The first season in most shows is usually a little rough and he characters are underdeveloped or don't have exaggerated personalities. This episode rebels from most first season episodes and is very clever, smart, and controversial. It also is the first episode which really starts to introduce and emphasize the individual character's personalities, as all of them were pretty much generic young adults. Dee becomes a hopeless high school wannabe to relive her glory days, Dennis talks about dating minors and finds himself dating an 18 year old,Charlie brings together young couples and listens to all the teens problems, and Mac walks around jealous and bitter(mac's personality before he became a religious, possibly gay white trash karate lover).All the characters have their own role and with their personalities it really enhances this episode, especially with all the jokes about teens, and serving them illegally for a profit and dating a chunk of them.
The show gets edgy for the first time, which the show doesn't do often unless it shows odd sexual scenes. It is seen as negative by most viewers but it gives it that TV-MA edge that the show needed. Dee is even seen with a dildo about to watch porn and dry humps an 18-year old. This episode is a great one to start from and still has those clever funny moments that you don't quite get with new episodes which feature jokes that are buried under the exaggerated outrageous personalities of the characters.
