User Reviews

Can this programme get any more stupid?
11 April 2004 | by RickW-UKSee all my reviews

Personally i think that kids programmes featuring schools and ridiculous. They are NOTHING like the real thing, i left school last year and this programme is just one huge laugh.

Its only a couple of years ago that Grange Hill was home to 'The Double Dare gang', i mean come on! How many teenagers that you know would join the 'Double Dare Gang'

All of the teachers have changed, and some of the almost real characters have left, while the writers keep coming up with excuses to keep older pupils within the school.

Finish this show and make something realistic!

Rick
