good show...but does fox not know how to advertise?
13 December 2000 | by JBoze313See all my reviews

Ok. I think FOX has to be one of the worst networks on television when it comes to advertising! Before this show premiered, FOX hyped this show a lot, and all of the previews basically made it look like a slapstick comedy that was nothing but laughs. I didn't watch it because of that. I thought it would be too silly. I watched one episode this week, and I must say, I love this show. The characters, from what I saw, are deep and complicated, and the storyline is brilliant. In the previews for this show, they showed the teacher talking about the girl not wearing a bra, and talking about her breasts. This is where I think FOX went wrong, because the show is not like that at all. I think it was a cheap ploy to get people to watch, stupid tho, because the show is better than what they tried to make it out to be. 9.5/10 Definitely.
