brilliant but cancelled!
23 October 2005 | by splatterpunk-3See all my reviews

i was fascinated by the previous posters comparison to both l.a. law and st. elsewhere, there was a time when i considered the three my favorite shows! growing up in the 80's, they completely shaped my image of the world, i wanted to be first a doctor, then a lawyer and then a teacher and i swear these shows had something to do with that. in any event, i almost went to high school in the bronx -ended up in brooklyn instead- but can attest to the accuracy of the depiction of public school in nyc. i ended up a teacher after all, so i guess i should thank the producers (for some reason i've always thought this was a stephen b/David kelly production)
