Truly bad TV
25 June 2006 | by susanj50See all my reviews

i watched this show when it came on a few times and I remember it because it was so terrible. It was completely devoid of any originality or creativity. It seemed mostly to be a rip off of other television shows, such as "Welcome Back Kotter" which was infinitely more creative.

One character, I think it was Boychick, spoke in a falsetto like one of the characters in "Welcome Back Kotter" I watched it with a gay friend and he asked "Is he supposed to be gay?" I actually don't know.

Shows like this are memorable because they are so bad. I would put this show up there was "My Mother The Car" and "BAD Cats." I suppose that it is impossible to see its few episodes today, but don't worry, they are not worth watching.
