Unique TV series that didn't hit the mark.
23 May 2009 | by emasterslakeSee all my reviews

After hearing about this new TV sitcom cartoon, I was having high hopes that it would be the most unique one to air on Fox. The series takes place in Florida with the main characters being staff members of a least convenient high school to attend. Each of the teachers, including the acting principal and custodian all have a personality of their own. During each episode they try to make their school as highly recognizable as a first rate school. However there's always something or someone messing up that goal towards the end.

Even though it only had four episodes air on TV. I think the idea for it was unique. It wasn't trying to become another knock off of the Simpsons or Family Guy. Cause it would be boring for their to be another family sitcom on TV when there's already so many of them. Despite it being different from those shows, I think the writers were trying their best to make this cartoon as non-Simpsons as possible. Without a theme song and large usage of live action backgrounds, that's one of the fewest elements that made this cartoon stand out more.

I was surprised that it became a failure so fast. After reading so many negative reviews from various viewers who say that it wasn't that funny.

I think the reason why not many people expect this to be a great comedy is probably because the writers didn't work out most of the jokes presented in the show. I admit that there were moments where a joke could been more funny than it was presented. Also a couple of the characters could need some working on too. Cause if you want a cartoon to be successful you need appealing characters.

Could this show have been a bigger success, I think so. Part of the problem with it is the writers failed to come up with something that would appeal to all viewers. If the writers took the time to gather surveys on what people want to see in this cartoon then it would of lasted for at least 2-3 seasons the most.
