The One Where Steve Has Scoliosis...
21 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

I really enjoy this episode. In it, Steve finds out that he has scoliosis and has to wear a back brace, for six weeks. And he is really upset about it. But Stan gives him some advice. That it's what's on the inside that counts, but Steve is still nervous. When Steve arrives home early, he discovers that Stan is actually bald. Which kind of puts a dent in Stan's "it's what's on the inside that counts" line. Stan explains to Steve that when he was a teenager, he had a lot of acne. Like a whole lot. And that he was teased and ridiculed for it. He tried everything to get rid of the acne. Every idea out there. Including Satanic rituals. Which is really weird, I might add. However, before Stan went to college, he took an experimental acne treatment which cures him. Unfortunately, on the second day of college, the side of effect reared its ugly head. Loss of hair. Leaving Stan, forever bald. I love this episode because it turns out that Stan is bald. Which is funny, because he always says and implies that he's perfect. Overall, I give this episode an eight out ten.
