A low budget gem!
10 September 2018 | by RyanWinter100See all my reviews

I first saw this show with my kids when it came on the Disney Channel in the afternoons. I would look at bits and pieces as dealt with my kids. I think Disney broadcasted one and half seasons of the show. I sort of liked it, but I just couldn't focus on it. Now, years later, with Netflix, I was searching for something to watch when I saw Mr. Young listed. I was surprised that there were three entire seasons of the show. I decided to watch a couple each night. It didn't take long to fall in love with the show. We live in a time in which tons of money is poured into programs. There is often too much production and to little character and substance. Mr. Young is a low budget show, but they know that; they circumvent the budget by giving you charm. And that charm is supplied by a wonderful ensemble of young actors. The lead, Mr. Young, portrayed by Brendan Meyer is just perfect for the part. He is supported by fine performers who have fun playing their parts. The stories are often silly, but the actors never lose focus and always take the absurd seriously. Near the end of the third season, the writers, producers, and actors knew that their show was coming to an end. Well, they went out with style. The last six episodes worked on the closure of storylines, poked fun at themselves all while giving the audience the best they could afford. I appreciated and enjoyed the simplicity, the honesty, the pure humor of Mr. Young far more than expensive overblown junk. To tell you the truth, I miss all those guys at Finnegan High School.
