Uproarious Comedy Series
8 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember just enough of this show to know it was a finely done piece of work. Chad Lowe played the central character, a much beset upon student who couldn't catch a break from anyone - teachers, parents, principal, other students - yet always came out on top using his wit and guile to do so. Of course, in so doing many funny moments - sometimes some very touching ones as well - were to be had. The characters played well off of one another and the writing was excellent as well.I too, like the previous reviewer, was very much saddened to see this series which had so much going for it and so much potential not get renewed.
