Horrible; a cheap 90s ripoff of an 80s classic
1 August 1999 | by Schmuck-4See all my reviews

The fact that this dreadful series, a barren spin-off of John Hughes' classic 1985 teen comedy WEIRD SCIENCE, was ever given the green light is a testament to how in the 90s, people in the TV industry will do anything to make a buck.

It surprises me that a once-great director of Hughes' calibre would even permit this to be made. The acting in this show is nightmarish; original, interesting characters from the movie are reduced to two-dimensional caricatures; the scripts are horribly plodding and clumsy; and the name WEIRD SCIENCE is put to shame. It is a complete misrepresentation of the 80s. Thank God they've stopped making it.

Let's just hope they don't make a series out of PLANES, TRAINS AND AUTOMOBILES, another Hughes masterpiece.
