Nickelodeon's Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide chronicles the wacky adventures of Ned Bigby and his best pals Moze and Cookie at James K. Polk Middle School, as "every-kid" Ned shatters the fourth wall to share tips and tricks on navigating middle school or junior high hurdles. Ned's not super cool, and he has no superpowers. He is, however, witty, well-groomed, upbeat and self-aware. Moreover, with more than a little help from his two best friends, he's equipped to conquer middle school minefields. From crushing bullies to crushes, from off- the-wall, mean and cool teachers to pop quizzes, elections and detentions, Ned knows that nothing, including the seventh grade, is as bad as it seems, and friendship matters most.

Throwback to classic Nick
3 May 2006 | by uptownrnSee all my reviews

Being 18 and having only basic cable channels, my sick time TV choices are fairly limited. One of those sick days I caught an episode of Ned's Declassified school survival guide. I was hooked ever since.

The premise is simple one boy (Ned) and his two friends are trying to create a guide to surviving middle school. Each show made up of two fifteen minute episodes. Each episode focuses on one overall heading of "the guide" mentioned in the title.

What I like most about this show is the resemblance it bears to the Nick sitcoms when I was kid. The humor is young but not stupid, much like Clarissa Explains it All and Salute Your Shorts. Also, like Clarissa used to Ned talks directly to the camera, explaining "guide tips" and situations inside of the plot. Of course there are gags (it is still aimed at kids after all) but some of those gags are actually better for older kids and adults, like the vice principal who dresses like the guys from Miami Vice.

All in all this is a pretty good show, not great, but there are definitely worse out there, heck, there are even worse on Nickelodeon...like Zoey 101.
