This is school humour at its best. As a secondary teacher, this series rings so true to life, that at times, I can only cringe. Whilst there have been opinions about it's political incorrectness, and I'm not saying that it is actually politically correct, in fact, far from it. It is close to one of the most politically incorrect shows I have ever seen... but that's what makes it so endearing and an enjoyable show.
Mr. Gormsby (David McPhail) is an incredibly... shall we say... odd... teacher who strives to control a class of misfits. McPhail nails the character down so well that he (scarily) reminds me of an old maths teacher I had in my high school days.
I highly recommend this series to anyone who is in education, been in education or has had an education... and can take a joke in this increasingly PC world...
