Love Ari Graynor but I'm uncertain about the concept
10 May 2014 | by See all my reviews

Meredith Davis (Ari Graynor) is getting divorced but she's left with nothing since she signed a prenup. When she's at the elementary school, she notices all the rich single dads. She decides to get close by being a teacher. She befriends principal Carl Gaines (David Alan Grier) and fakes a resume. She is the worst possible teacher. Irene (Sara Gilbert) is the meek pushover teacher. Ginny (Kristin Davis) is the mean queen bee. Joel (Ryan Hansen) is the nice gym teacher.

I kind of feel the same way about this show as I did the movie. Bad teacher isn't bad enough. The only way this show would work is if the show is completely inappropriate. Of course that would rule out a network TV show. Therefore it's trapped in a neverland where she's mean but she always pulls back to do the right thing.

I love Ari Graynor and her comedic sense. I first noticed her in 'Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist' as the drunk best friend. They really need to rethink the concept behind the show. For example, I think it would be better for Meredith to have a best friend or a sister companion. Quite frankly, I'm not sure that 'Bad Teacher' is a good concept for network TV. What's next? 'Bad Santa'? It's canceled 3 episodes in.
