Very funny and original but short lived Fox sitcom with many would be big names
20 September 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This quirky and enjoyable sitcom had a shelf life of about 5 weeks on the Fox network, proving Fox's reputation for being alternative and a "risk taker" was all hype. Great Scott should have been given a chance. The show centered around a kid who was perceived as a bit of a loser (Toby Maguire of Spiderman fame in his first lead roll) and relied heavily on cutaways to his fertile imagination. Created by the powerful comedy duo of Tom Gammill and Max Pross, who went on to be writer/producers on Seinfeld and The Simpsons, the show had an originality and silliness that was either too far ahead of it's time or just over the heads of Fox viewers and executives. Great supporting cast including Scott's best friend played by Kevin Connolly and his unqualified math teacher hilariously played by comedian Brian Haley.

This show demonstrates Hunter S. Thompson's observation that "The TV business is uglier than most things... some kind of cruel and shallow money trench ... a long plastic hallway where thieves and pimps run free and good men die like dogs, for no good reason."
