Ok, I am writing this review in response to the bad review written by Bill
which I don't believe this series deserves. "Weird Science" is one of the
BEST TV series ever made and is definitely my #1 favorite show of all-time
and will always be! I like the Cast from the series a lot better than the
cast in the movie and think Lee Tergeson makes a better Chett than Bill
Paxton, Vanessa Angel is definitely a lot better as Lisa than Kelly
and in addition prefer Michael Manasseri and John Mallory Asher as Wyatt
Gary. Plus, Bruce Jarchow as Principal Scampi is brilliant. Bruce adds A
of comedy to the show, and such is why "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids: The TV
Show" is also a very good show.
You have to take into account the BIG time span between the Weird Science movie and the tv series, before you start saying anything about the movie or the series. There is a whopping 8 - 9 years between them. Therefore, the movie will undoubtably always appeal to people over the age of 25 or 26, and the series will always undoubtably appeal to anyone under the age of 25. It also depends on which you see first as to which you will like. If you see the series first, you will most likely like that and not like the movie as much, and vise versa.
I personally do not care for the movie at all and will always watch an episode or 2 of the Series whenever I want some "Weird Science". I own the movie as well, but may never watch it again as I just don't care for it. I absolutely LOVE the tv series, though, and really wish USA Network continued it for Season 6. It was one of their most popular shows, too, by the way.
This was an amazing series. It was very funny. The cast had excellent chemistry together. The movie was okay, but this show was much better. They got very creative with each episode. It's a shame USA cancelled it (no reason was ever given by the way). The reruns don't even run down here in America. Weird Science would make an excellent addition to the Sci-Fi Channel line up. I'm just glad I taped a few episodes.
In some ways, I think this series is better than the movie. I like the cast a lot better in the series, and seeing as how you can watch the show every week, ya know...more than 2 hours worth of story! I liked this show a lot when it was on U.S.A. network years ago, but now, it's back on Fox Family Channel on Saturdays. Great idea, because the show is really funny. The production values are decent for a show of the type, the cast can act...and Vanessa Angel, she's somewhat pretty, but I think she's hilarious in this role. Great show, great add-on to the movie. 8/10
Hey, this actually was a pretty funny show! It had all the makings of a stupid, Saved By the Bell-like crap-cheese television flop, but actually the show was genuinely funny and creative! What was best were the hit-and-run jokes almost like the Simpsons.
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.
I remember watching this series on USA quite a few years ago. I was pretty young back then, but I vaguely remembered seeing it. I was just hoping that I would get the chance to see it again and thankfully I did as Fox Family picked up the re-runs of this show. I've started watching the series again and I LOVE IT! I hadn't watched the John Hughes film, which this series is based on, until a little bit before I saw the series for the second time. I have to say that I enjoy the television series even more than the film. While, both casts were great, there's just something about the television series that makes me enjoy it more. I just hope that Fox Family continues showing re-runs of the show for a long time.
Gary Wallace (John Mallory Asher) and Wyatt Donnelly (Michael Manasseri) are teenagers who create a perfect woman with their computer, Lisa (Vanessa Angel).Wyatt's mean brother is played by Lee Tergesen and principal Scampi is played by Bruce Jarchow.Weird Science ran from 1994 to 1997.The actors did great job and everything worked just perfectly in this comedy sci-fi show.The show was as good or even better than the movie.Weird Science is great fun especially for teens.
"Weird Science" is an array of every situation that a teenage guy can get into, and is stuningly exaggerated. The use of CG hasn't tainted the point of the show, and the cast really is easy to connect with. Gary and Wyatt have portrayed their charaters as if there was no acting required, and have just put together one of my favorite shows of all time.
In a word, interesting, the fact that 2 15 year old were given an
electric hot woman in the form of Vanessa Angel (that chick from
kingpin) it spells hijinxs.But like i said its an interesting concepts
and for the most part I like it. However will it be one of my favorite
TV shows of the 90's, not by a long shot
The good Now the premise is nice, Lisa for the most part is fun and likable and she does have the sex appeal,plus I prefer straight hair (sorry Kelly) and even Wyatt is a fun character, and i really feel bad he's been overshadowed as a main character by Gary which I will get to later. Still the skits are funny, the ideas of horny boys releateable, and Lisa as i said makes everything enjoyable , for some time
The bad EVERYONE IS A DOUCHE!!!! Why do early 90's do that, what do we make the supporting cast so unlikable , that we want them sliced off by Jason Voorhees, the brother isn't likable, the school isn't likable , hell even their own parents are big douche bags, When Gary's dad says "You know our son cant learn" I felt really hurt, oh and speaking of Gary, why don't we make him a douche and unpopular, cause that's what i get when i see him on the show , I want to make him out like Shawn Hunter from Boy meets World, but he's too douche to be even compared to that, this one fatal flaw which prevents me from enjoying this show, .If anyone can look over that, then i suppose you would like this show, but for me its okay show for having an amazing premise , A 6.7 not bad , but could be better
Close to it. Weird Science picks up where the movie starts. Two teen slackers, Wyatt Donnelly and Gary Wallace, create their own personal dream girl, Lisa, on Wyatt's computer. What they didn't know is that she'd be a geneie! So our story takes Wyatt and Gary on the craziest adventures TV can bring you! For example, in one episode they Gary get's a pair of flying shoes and is thought to be a UFO by X-File wanna be's! This series is great and has some really cool retro special effects. I actually liked it better than the movie (which is pretty good). You can catch this series on WAM at 3:00 pm! It's an example of the cool things in the 90's
