A group of gifted high-school students are placed together into an "enrichment" class. Although brilliant, they have much to learn about each other and themselves. Written by

We're here to help you babe. We're looking for a tall blonde, killer body, killer legs, killer smile, a little spacey, but hot.

A show with its moments, but no real staying power.
I remember seeing this one from time to time and it had its moments. Then they got rid of Howard Hesseman and a few other cast members and added Billy Connolly as the teacher of this show and it just was not the same show anymore. The show was just about tailored around Hesseman's character so I am not sure why they got rid of him, most likely because this is the type of show that never really grabs a mainstream audience and instead only has a select group which is why it can hang around, but can not last beyond a few seasons. Though it did make it over 100 episodes so it most certainly can not be considered a failure by any means. News Radio lasted only 98 or 99 episodes and it was a much funnier show in my opinion so while this one is not really a super success story it can be considered one of those shows that found limited success. This one revolves around a group of super intelligent kids in their class with their quirky teacher. He would teach them things beyond the classroom, which once again makes it seem beyond bizarre that they got rid of Hesseman, though he may be the one that opted out of the show. Some good jokes here and there, but there were some episodes that were just full of jokes that make one groan and make the live audience laugh nervously. Mild success and mildly funny at times, however, not as gifted as the kids portrayed.
