Sounds like the previous reviewer was having a bad night when watching this show's pilot. There's plenty of room for improvement for Teachers, but keep in mind that Cheers faced the same kind of harsh criticism and was almost canceled in its first season. Am I implying that Teachers has the same potential as Cheers? Not necessarily, but I do think it's a diamond in the rough. The main asset on Teachers' side is its host of distinctive characters. The writing is a bit uneven, but occasionally produces biting gems like an attractive female teacher's observation about three leering male co-workers, comparing them to a 'recruitment poster for Lesbians.' Put-down humor may not be genteel, but it scores laughs, and has ever since Sophia's zingers in Golden Girls. The main character seems to be Jeff Cahill(Justin Bartha), a sarcastic, bad-boy English teacher who's hot for Alice Fletcher(Sarah Alexander), a tart-tongued, ex-Brit fellow teacher who would respond well to Jeff's advances if only he'd be more mature. I share her disdain for his attitude and fountain of quips. Enough is enough. Also, the show's wardrobe staff take note: Jeff's jeans are way too tight and the low-riding pair worn in the pilot looked rather, well, feminine. If the writers use other characters more liberally (the slutty substitute, the burned out bald guy, and the uptight African American buddy), good things may happen. And how about involving students more? Will they maximize Teachers' potential, or will we consistently mark its card 'Capable of Doing Better?' We'll see.
