A laugh a minute
25 June 2002 | by (Geelong, Australia) – See all my reviews

I used to watch this as a 10 year old kid. Not even knowing what rasism was I thought this was the greatest show ever. I guess I could relate to the characters trying to learn something new. They were almost like children in that classroom which made it really easy for someone of my age to find it ammusing. It's a shame that in these times of politcal correctness that it'll never be shown on Australian TV again. I don't even think its on pay TV. I doubt it. So heres to one of the best TV shows of its time. A laugh a minute. Nothing more. Nothing less.
