Good Show
1 July 2005 | by (THAILAND, BANGKOK) – See all my reviews

Many people might find this is an offensive series especially toward teacher and condemn it as bad show. But what ever it is, I really like this show. It is so intense, emotional, alright acting, and the keep on changing cast make it not boring.

Yes, I agreed some stuff is offensive, but the series is too good to miss. Each week the faculty faces different problem (some of the stuff I highly doubted) but it is still fun to watch it.

What I really like is how the story of the teachers tried to deal with the everyday problem in school and put their personal life into it. (though it not happen in real life but still nice to see it).

Anyway, it was kind of sad to see it got cancel cause it got low rating, but at least it was still in its prime to me.

Recommendation: Yes, it is a pretty good relationship series.

Rating: 7.5/10 (Grade: B)
