Wow that is some Rant. I like this episode and I thought it was an issues with underage drinking
I thought you didn't watch the show josh :P
Juliet, it was an episode about underage drinking. The problem was that there was really no consequences or a resolution of any of them stopping.
Same thing with the Sexy episode. What was the point of that? It was another episode full of a controversial topic that ended in a "do what ever the hell you want, no one cares." If you are going to do a show with issues that actually effect teens, can you have a small encouragement in any direction?
In fact, what they really did is make anyone who believes in celibacy seem like an idiot. I don't mind if they really showed both sides of the story for the sex and drinking, but they really presented the pro drinking and pro sex as the BEST alternative for teens. It just wasn't good writing. There are a lot of young people watching, and at the very least they should give those who believe in avoiding drinking/sex a line that doesn't read as "durrr I no have sex, I'm mentally retarded."
If you transferred this show to the 90's, it would be like the full house episode about child abuse. Except at the end Bob Saget would say "Hitting a child is wrong, but its freaking awesome! So don't get caught!"
