Goofs

In her introductory episode, the character of Kimberly Woods claims she is teaching at the high school as part of the "Teach for America" program. Boston is not currently a city where "Teach for America" operates. It is being considered as an addition, but it is not in the program at the time the episode aired. See more »

Quotes

Marla Hendricks: These kids, the only way they're going to be all they can be is to join the Marines. There're echoes where their brains should be.
Scott Guber: Well, they're smart enough to fool you, Marla.

Too complicated for the general viewing public
22 January 2004 | by (New Mexico, USA) – See all my reviews

You'll hear a lot of people complain about Boston Public, calling it stupid or contrived or even sappy. But the sad fact is, it's main failing is that it addresses serious topics for an audience that would rather watch Queer Eye for the Straight Guy. People don't want socially relevant television ... they want South Park entertainment.

Well, it IS a great show. The character development is done with finely tuned precision, making one often forget that they are watching and not actually "there". The people on the show meld into their roles so well that it makes me shudder to think back to High School.

But one thing this show does NOT do is make me want to be a teacher.
