Here is the worst Buffy episode ever.
3 April 2020 | by iamshawniebSee all my reviews

I love this show. Truly, undeniably love it. But love must come with honesty. And this episode is so blatantly used as a metaphor for drug addiction it will make your eyes rolls into your head for 44 minutes straight. Even the fight with the demon comes off as uninspired. With a show as smart as BTVS it is disheartening to see it resort to blatant and obvious tropes that would be better suited for an 80's after school special.

Don't skip it as it is still BTVS and if you're watching it now, you're binging. But be aware this isn't the crews finest work
