Not too bad
21 August 2012 | by (England, United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Here is quite an interesting episode and sadly I must say it is one where people laugh at other's misfortunes. Come to think of it, most shows are, aren't they? Van Dreissen has an accident, falling off his desk while trying to teach his class about meditation as the whole class did very badly in a test and he wanted to help them do better in general.

What happens when a teacher is out of action for a while, regardless of why? That's right, they get a substitute teacher in (also known as relief teachers). More often than not I'd like the substitute teachers at my school because my original ones used to suck a bit.

In Beavis and Butthead's case this substitute was a bit of a carefree jackass who tried to be a friend to the students but it ended up backfiring as he too experienced a similar fate to Van Dreissen. All because he trusted them. Doesn't anyone ever learn? A few good laughs to be had here so it is a worthwhile episode.
