3. Beer Bad (Season 4, episode 5)
This episode needs little explanation as to why it made the cut as one of the worst episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer. The episode follows Xander as he gains a job as a bartender at the college pub where Buffy and some upperclassmen transform into cavemen (quite literally) the more they drink. The entire episode, if I’m being honest, feels like an after-school special on drinking, with Buffy’s dumbed down speech and memorable outburst of “beer bad,” there are few positives to this episode. However, the episode was nominated for an Emmy Award for ‘Outstanding Hairstyling in a Series.’ You can understand why―just look at Buffy’s hair!
