Not the strongest episode to close out the season but a pretty damn good one.

As (briefly) a former goth kid in high school, I was totally on the goth kids' side against the douchey little vampire kids who love Twilight and shop at Hot Topic. (Man, am I glad I'm not a teenager anymore.)

I loved the frustration of the goth kids being labled as vampires.

"Do you even drink coffee?"
"No, it's bad for you!"
"Oh my God!"

I also really liked Trey and Matt's idea that what separates a real goth from a trendy vampire is the goths have the capacity to commit kidnapping, vandalism and arson. They're hardcore.

Even beyond the vampires and goths conflict, I'll always remember the episode for the following exchange:

Eric: "Well, mom, apparently Butters is gay, finds me very attractive, and, confused about his sexual identity, puked up all over my floor!"
Mrs. Cartman: "Oh dear!"
Eric: "Yes."

The way he said "yes" was so GD funny they repeated it after the credits.

Excellent half a season. March seems so far away.

I love how spot-on the Goths are to the ones I remember from high school. The hair-flip especially.

Not really a fan of Hot Topic, so it was fun to see it burn.

I'm not a fan of the store, per se.

Is it possible to judge how good an adaptation is without having read the source material? I am not asking about judging the adaptation on its own merits, rather I am asking whether you can judge how faithful the adaptation was to the source material?
