This episode wasn't awful like Teacher's Pet but it was a pretty slow moving and dry episode, I feel like it also repeats the plot of the first two episodes and doesn't really make anything new out of that. Buffy and her date in this episode just don't really have a good chemistry just making it kind hard to sit through. At some points they just spend a lot of time looking for the vampires, there isn't really much action or fighting until the end which is probably best scene of the episode but overall the plot just isn't really that great.
