T.J. Jones: [before T.J. starts her rap] You really want to hear this?
Sarah Nevins: Yeah!

excelent show
29 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

I learned something new everyday from this show. I wish mr. moore was my teacher in high school. It's just a dynamic classroom situation comedy with all the stereotypes there, like an 80's movie only in small doses. I'm sorry it's no "friends" or "er", but I think it got messages about growing up across simply enough, and it a really fun, friendly show.
