When a school field trip to Good Time Island is coming up, Jerri couldn't be more exited. However Principal Blackman is out on a witch hunt to figure out who the school problem is. So Mr. Noblet asks...
Jerri Blank is a 46-year-old "boozer, user and a loser" who tries to put her life back together again. The reformed runaway and addict returns to high school as a freshman, where she tries to fit in and act hip with girls 1/3 her age. Unfortunately, she hasn't quite shed her immoral background or acquired any ethics, and her bizarre family and frustrated schoolmates have trouble interacting with her.Written by

At the end of every episode while the credits are rolling you see the cast in that episode dancing. See more »
In the the complete season three box set, episodes "Trail of Tears" and "Is My Daddy Crazy?" feature the original aired episodes, however in the complete Series Box Set they are director's cut episodes. See more »
Amy Sederis is brilliant as Jerri Blank amid a cast of other excellent comic writer/actors, including Paul Dinello and "The Daily Show's" Stephen Colbert. It had me consistently on the floor with it's inventiveness, audacity and vicious wit (i.e., the prayer at the Families of Alcoholics meeting: "Dear God, please give me the strength to blame those who did this to me, to accuse those who didn't, and the wisdom to know the difference.") It's long since disappeared from Comedy Central, but DVDs of Seasons One and Two are out, and a movie version by the same team is on its way for 2005. BTW, whoever suggested that the writers were "white supremists," I sincerely hope you are joking. It's called satire, in the vein of Swift and Voltaire.
