Should have been given a chance

This failed pilot that aired in late-August 1983 was intended to replace the now-canceled SQUARE PEGS, but after low ratings for it, CBS decided to not consider it as a weekly series, although it should have been given a chance, at least.

The show is nothing more than your typical high-school hijinks centered around three pals Pete Falcone (Robert Romanus, somewhat reprising his Mike Damone character from FAST TIMES AT RIDGEMONT HIGH), nerdy Neil Heffenan (Leif Green) and prankster/aspiring musician Dewey Hooper (Chris Nash). On the way to their junior year of high school, they pick up two girls, brash Robin Dupree (Krista Errickson) and goody-goody Patti Eubanks (Hallie Todd), who takes a liking to Pete immediately. Dewey is then met at the school by hard- nosed vice principal Franklin T. Otto (William G. Schilling from HEAD OF THE CLASS) who's determined to expel him if he sees him goofing off and/or cutting class and later Pete is threatened by a hulking expelled bully after taunting his younger brother.

That's pretty much the whole plot, but the cast of other familiar faces (Whitman Mayo, Alex Rocco, Tony Longo, and Rob Garrison) makes this unsold pilot worthwhile.
