Obscurus Lupa Presents: Beer Bad

You know, there is nothing I love more than when things I like collide. I've been waiting a long time for an excuse to promote anything at That Guy With The Glasses and, today, at long last, my excuse has finally come. Enter Allison Pregler aka Obscurus Lupa, one of the newest editions to the TGWTG team and her latest segment, Manic Episodes, where, you guessed it, she makes fun of the stranger episodes of the most popular genre shows. And what could make for better fodder than "Beer Bad", an episode that everyone thinks is absolutely ridiculous? Well, everyone, except for those Buffy/Parker and Oz/Veruca 'shippers out there (I know you weirdos must exist somewhere. This is the internet!)

Without any further prattling from me, here is Allison in her element, talking about all things foamy.

This was pretty hilarious and I'm really looking forward to seeing what episodes of Buffy/Angel/Firefly/Dollhouse(Oh, God, please make fun of Dollhouse) Allison might take on next. What episodes would you like to see her take to task?

Also, I really want Linkara to take on Buffy Season 8. Get to it, Lewis!

I look at everything Buffy as what real people would go through as growing up. Looking at it that way with the supernatural thrown it really makes sense. How many girls go to college thinking they will find their soul mate and how many get screwed? Literally...
How many college students have bad drinking experiences? The answer is all of them..no magic component so this is really all about real life. Buffy all through Sunnydale high school expressed insecurites so that would carry over to college so the whole thing with Parker makes sense. I'm going on about this too much but I obsess too much about why Buffy is the perfect TV show because the characters make mistakes and grow up during the show. OK, I'll shut up now.

LOVE THIS!! obscuruslupa, make some more, make some more!

and I'm totally with you, Lanned, as I'm sure everyone here at Buffyfest is. The PTB really hit the mark with so many great/funny/painful metaphors over the years. Sure, 'Beer Bad' is filled with some questionable ones, but the ep has really grown on me over the years.
