Although seven episodes were made, only two were broadcast (the 60-minute premiere and one 30-minute episode) on consecutive nights. Due to extreme press and public reaction to its anarchic content, the series was pulled from the schedules and has never been shown since. See more »
I remember watching the first episode with high hopes - was I wrong! Embarrassingly unfunny is the mildest comment I can make. Ahead of its time? I don't think so - the jokes(?) just did not work and some of the actors appeared to be distinctly uncomfortable in their roles. The story? Set in a school presumably modeled along the lines of St Trinians, which is OK for the 50's, but completely misses the mark in the 80's. I started to cringe when the school supplies were delivered by a security firm (because the kids usually raided the van). It could have been funny but I think that the producer was trying too hard - any controversial material must have been lost in the general silliness of the script.
