Jay R. Ferguson,
Whoa! Not a single user comment on this excellent series yet? Better rectify that! I've only seen a handful of episodes of Hull High, but what I saw stayed very firmly in my memory. This is generally an unusually well-written and acted high school show, which successfully breaks all the conventions. It is never stale - sometimes serious, sometimes comical, sometimes it has dialogue and sometimes musical numbers, and it delves into all aspects of teen life, incl. politics, day-dreaming, student and teacher intrigues, and much more. All in all a very attractive package. And speaking of attractive, you don't know the meaning of the word until you have experienced Nancy Valen as Donna Breedlove. She is one of the beautifullest actresses ever. Why she never had a bigger career I'll never know. Catch this show if you get the chance. It's far better than most other high school shows around.
My rating: 8 out of 10.
