10 Things I Hate About You: You Can't Always Get Want You Want

Being a needy high school student who wants to be popular prompts Bianca and her friend, Dawn, to set-up a web show pay site (with Cameron's help). The cam show isn't a hit though until the girls take the action to a more risque level. Which is where things get a little "Katy Perry".

Meanwhile, Kat goes to war with the school over the grading policies of Ms. Summers. But she's the one who ends up learning a painful lesson about friendship and being so driven that you forget everything else.

Episode Goofs
Biance and Dawn's web show cost 5 dollars to watch according to them in the first scene when Cameron became their first subscriber. It soon zoomed to 23 viewers at it's highest point, which amounts to 115 dollars. But Bianca later claims that they only made 110 dollars the first night.

The girls "viewer counter" spiked when Michael called some of his friends and got them to tune in as Dawn was scratching Bianca's back. But as soon as Dawn stopped, the "viewer counter" plummeted and then shot back as soon as the "good stuff" started again. So if these people left because the back scratching stopped, how did they know what was happening after they left? Because many of them apparently returned immediately when the back scratching returned.
