What Was This?
8 January 2006 | by See all my reviews

I remember this thing and had not an ever-lovin' clue what was supposed to be going on.

A kid from LA moves to Brooklyn and has a time adjusting, makes friends, or something.

Raphael Sbarge (who?) was the kid, it was the break-dance era, so there was a bit of that, if you were going to be cool, but of course he was cool. His friends were cool and they said he was cool.

It was all cool.

I remember the one, Snake, Guy Killum, was appearing in a Skittles commercial about the same time.

With a lot of break-dancing of course.

One episode had a much-admired former student who was going to college on a basketball scholarship, died of a drug overdose in the classroom.

Now the class must sit and talk about how they feel.

Sbarge remembered a lot of good things about his friend, then concluded with 'that's all I got to say.' I always like that line. 'that's all I got to say.' like that is all there can be said, but that means what they have said must be deep, which ten times out of ten, . . . it isn't! No wonder this show only lasted one season, but I never understood how it got on the air to begin with.

Not surprising to see no one else seems to remember it either.

Next time I would see Sbarge, he was on the premiere of Fox's silly Werewolf show.
