Sitcom (produced in Canada) about a private school teacher who also moonlighted as a professional wrestler. Robert Randall (the late Alzado) would balance day to day problems with his students and with his kids Ellen (Stoffman) and Mark (Bisson). The show would also feature actual wrestlers from the National Wrestling Alliance. Written by

OK, so I guess it was a lame concept and had bad acting, but there was something about this show that I just absolutely loved. Seeing pro wrestlers talk about life lessons is just so incredibly entertaining. I assume I'm one of about 45 people who have ever even seen this show, but hopefully someday they will bring the few episodes that exist back on the air so that people can see this show first hand. As far as I'm concerned, "Learning the Ropes" should have been a staple in American culture.
I also would like to say that its a shame that Lyle Alzado is no longer with us. His acting may not have been up to par, but he did have a certain charm that made him fun to watch. I believe that his acting career may have gotten bigger had it not been for his untimely death.
