I was young when this show started playing and I didn't watch one episode...but then the reruns on TBS started. I got hooked instantly. Watching the antics of Steve, Cedric, Levita and Regina along with the students Romeo and Bullethead( and sometimes, Lydia) was just hilarious. Romeo and Bullethead have this on screen chemistry thats just amazing and keeps you doubled over with gut-busting laughter, and Steve's conversations with his students are even funnier. Him being a former member of the Hi-Tops just adds to the show, and furthers the plot. Basically, its just a good show, and they need more like it nowadays.
