Gerry Dee from CBC's Mr. D puts on a funny wolf man beard and pretends he is an Eastern European substitute teacher and then he talks to the students all day, but then he takes his beard ... See full summary »
Education, or as they say in French, Edu-CAY-SHAWN
CBC seems to be looking for "Mr. D" to be the replacement to Monday night's popular "Little Mosque on the Prairie" which is ending in 2012. By the looks of it, they have a keeper. Gerry Dee plays Mr. Duncan, a substitute Phys. Ed. teacher starting his full time career as a Social Studies teacher. His lack of historical knowledge is hilarious. He says he will teach his kids such Canadian history as learning who the other three Dionne Quintuplets are, besides Marcel and Celine and promises to teach them all about the Underground "Subway System". When a parent asks him to name the first man on the moon, Mr. D says, "Louie Armstrong" but then quickly corrects himself with "Lance Armstrong". Joining Gerry Dee in the cast is stand up star Bette MacDonald as the school secretary, reality youth sensation Jonathan Torrens as the principal, and the great Booth Savage as the school Sports head. The sit com should appeal to not only teachers but parents and anyone who was ever a student, in Canada or, really, anywhere.
