Jay R. Ferguson,
A sparkling cocktail of entertainment and memories -- should have lasted longer than it did
I know this show ran in 1990, but it had an 80s-esque feel to me -- I always felt that 1990 was the tail end of the 80s anyhow, and what a way to cap off the decade of day-glo-miniskirts, new-wave music, NutraSweet, fruit snacks, flavored lip gloss, Pac-Man, and David Bowie.
This inventive show WAS the original high school musical and I enjoyed it immensely even though I was in college and technically an adult (22) at the time, for this was an entertainment that can transcend the prom-and-Clearasil-and SATs age bracket, with its brilliant writing and charming musical numbers and dance routines relevant to the storyline's subject matter.
And in the pilot episode, the locker-room shower scene where the guys were singing "You Really Got Me Going" -- man, that sure got ME going.
I think that Hull High could have been a hit if the Suits just gave it a chance
