I too fell for the Willow's believing this jackass trick....the sigh of relief when she shuts him down probably could have been heard the world over. Lol
Also I would have had NO problem with Buffy's 'Frequented by Vampires Cave' end for Stinky Parker man....she shoulda smacked more sense into that douche/bastard.
As for the podcast itself and Bryans worries about it ,I actually thought it was fun.
I told Bryan is was going to come out sounding like a normal episode.
As to Beer Bad itself, I have said in the guilty pleasures thread that I like this one. I love cavewoman Buffy - "Buffy strong, want beer" is a nice change from the brooding over Parker Buffy.
