A vastly underrated masterpiece.
21 January 2002 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

Mitch Mullaney plays a bumbling school teacher who gives his kids lessons in not only school work but in life and most beautifully love. Mullaney is amazing!! In this role he displays a sense of comedic timing that belies his youth and lack of experience on the small screen. Many critics have argued that this series chooses to rely on conventional stereotypes to deliver its poignant message and in this respect is weak. However, the use of these already well developed character profiles allows the show to almost paradoxically better explore the concept of what it means to be human, falable and individual. Special mention must go to the Ukranian beauty Mila Kunis who plays Anna-Marie and who sets the screen alive with her electric beauty and powerful presence. I predict she will in time redefine the accepted idea of a perfect Hollywood leading lady.

In this series Freno is willing to sacrifice all that is pure in his own life to save the innocence of one of his nubile young femmes or courageous young bucks. Freno it seems would even sacrifice his career for his students. Through this Freno calls upon the audience to question what they think is dear to them and open their minds to what lies beyond their button down existence. So much more is out there to enjoy. Must one choose between being a teacher and a lover? Or is it possible to be both. I believe in "Nick Freno: Licensed Teacher" there is an answer to this eternal question.

So folks...grab a pencil case, a juice box, some tasty snacks to mack on and go back to school for the lesson of your life. A lesson that there is always hope if you believe in yourself but most importantly if you are brave enough to believe in others.
