Really Not that Bad
2 August 2004 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Detention really wasn't that bad of a show. I actually thought it was quite entertaining. I used to watch it on kids WB on Saturday mornings. Detention was a show about kids always winding up in Detention. The characters were: Shareena Wickett, the leader of the group, Emmitt Roswell, who was searching for aliens, Duncan Bubble, who was always playing with his yoyo and never talking, Lemonjella LaBelle and Orangejella LaBelle who were the smart twins, Jim Kim, who liked reading comic books, Gug, the weird kid, and Shelley Kelley, the teacher's pet who just went to detention because she liked to. My favorite characters were Shareena and Jim. Coming from a true Recess fan I find no resemblance between these two shows. Overall I give Detention an 9/10 stars.
