Great Fun for teens
14 June 1999 | by (Leeds, UK) – See all my reviews

Weird Science is one of the funniest TV series' I have ever seen. It is really funny, allowing the actors to play off each other very skillfully, especially the two boys who are good friends in real life. Asher's timing is great, and well Vanessa Angel... What can I say. Wow. Some of the best talent to ever come out of England. The series finished after 88 episodes in 1998, though it is only recently being played in England. The teenage humour in the show is bought about by Chet and Lisa, allowing for enjoyment by all.
