Why?, 20 April 2005
Author: Brian Washington ( from Los Angeles, California

This short lived series was a lame attempt at trying to make money off of a classic film. The cast of this show never lived up to the standard the original cast set with the film. In fact, Dean Cameron's portrayal of Spicolli never came anywhere close to the standard Sean Penn set. The only saving grace of this show was the fact that Ray Walston came aboard to play the part of Mr. Hand. At least he brought a little bit of the charm that made his wickedly funny performance one of the highlights of the film. The same can be said of Vincent Schiavelli as Mr. Vargas. Unfortunately, this show isn't one tenth as funny or as relevant as the film that inspired it.
