Despite Gerry Dee's hilarious stage presentations, this show is a bust. Making the audience feel awkward is not humour. Making other characters feel awkward isn't humour either. Not even being awkward is great humour but the show relentlessly attempts to do it all the time. It's really too bad since Dee seems to have a genuine appreciation for the absurdities that take place on a frequent basis in classrooms everywhere but, I get the feeling, that the writers are stretching their imaginations on this show and he's the patsy. I presume, in typical Canadian TV fashion, as the producers realize that the audience numbers plummet after their first couple of views, they will introduce more sexual innuendo (awkward) or nudity (even more awkward in a sitcom) to boost the stats. Won't work though. Time for Gerry to go back on the road where he does best. Next?
