I Miss This Show!
doctor_dolittle8 August 2000
This is a teen sitcom I honestly miss. Where I live, it was shown at 6 a.m. on Saturday mornings, so I would have to wake up earlier than usual to tune in. And I did! This teen sitcom was better than practically all of that T-NBC junk on the air now. The show had a talented cast, clever (and realistic) dialogue, originality (the comic scenes are uproarious), and reality. For a teen sitcom, it surprisingly had teenagers acting the way modern teenagers really do, not like little kids in teenagers' (actually, 20-somethings') bodies. A great teen sitcom that just could not find its place on television.

Greatest teenage sitcom
airodyssey3 August 1999
I simply love this show and never miss it since I discovered how GOOD it is. Not always realistic, but sometimes it REALLY is. The balance between the real actors and their cartoon equivalents is great. I was really surprised to find out it was filmed in my hometown, MONTREAL! Way to go!

A great show

Warning: Spoilers
This show is really funny. I really like the chemistry between Cody and Emily, which is why I am so disappointed to find out that later on in the show, they broke up. Ross Hull had grown so much since his being in Are You Afraid of the Dark? and portrays his role very well. This show has a great cast and I wish I had known about it sooner. Jamie Elman shows a lot of promise in becoming the next Hollywood heartthrob and all the girls in the show are really beautiful. Can't wait to see what all of them would do next.

A paticular character
catpantry15 February 2020
There was one kid in this who stains my memory. They called him 'the prince of the ground.' People kept finding him staring at the water in toilets. Every SinGle DAY of this show he'd stare at 2 low quality pictures of the moon (one showing the entire moon, the other showing a close up of its surface) as he walked passed a circle of 12 kids who were sharing their thoughts.

nice and cute
SnoopyStyle18 August 2017
Cody Miller (Jamie Elman) is a cartoon drawing student at Thomas A. Edison High School. He is enchanted by new girl Emily Roberts (Nicole Lyn) who convinces him to start a school newspaper. The arrogant Victor Kane (Miklos Perlus) and his photographer sidekick Flash Albright (Jessica Goldapple) already have a school paper. Cody and his friends, Chris Sheppard (Ross Hull), fashionista Mags Abernathy (Kate McIninch), ladykiller Romeo Carter (Mark Taylor), and klutzy Grace Vasquez (Victoria Sanchez), have to share the paper with them. After Emily, Cody would date Grace, Holly Benson (Katheryn Winnick), and finally Kim McLoud (Jennifer Finnigan).

This is a Canadian tween show in the style of Saved by the Bell. The kids are eminently nice and cute. The show is bright and quirky. Cody and Emily are a bit bland as the lead couple. Grace is a much better and nicer fit. Her departure does create instability. I thought that Flash would be a good fit for Cody's next girlfriend. They seem to be grooming her for a bigger emotional role. Instead, they added Kim played by the super adorable Finnigan. It's not bad but that's three similar characters as his girlfriends. This lasted three solid seasons which is fair for a high school show.

OK
kateziegler-3670015 February 2019
Pretty bad acting and writing but the show is just a low budget kids show so you get what you pay for and what you should expect. Better than many, not as good as many others.

I Love this show!
JCs_PopTart2 August 2001
I really like this series, and it shows that there are people with worse problems than yours! Great concept, and the acting is good as well. It's surprising that all of the people on this show are actually over 20, but play 16-17 year old kids! I wish it was still going!

Extremely Unique
dmx_style27 March 2001
I love "Student Bodies," it's one show I make sure to watch everyday. Even though they stopped making new episodes two years ago it's still interesting. The acting is great and the character interaction is even better. The show deals with real teenage/high school issues very well, but still puts in those humorous, sometimes ridiculous moments too. The mix of animation really compliments the plot and gives a good insight into Cody's(main character) thoughts. I hope to see these actors go on to bigger and better things because they're a good bunch of kids. A good Canadian show, who knew.

saved by the bell its not
blkvinyl20 August 1999
for a half-hour show that deals with teens in and at school, this one actually has humor and truth to it... unlike saved by the bell and all the other useless 30 min teen 'fashion' shows that are produced and re-produced in the US, this one (made in Canada) is actually interesting without having that sick candy taste of a feeling... the truth and humor are helped by actual decent acting, which is pretty rare of tv shows, let alone 30 min ones that deal with teens... im also glad to say it's filmed in canada, my only problem with it is, it seems that the show is set somewhere in the US, and that takes away from an accomplishment for the Can producers and writers of the show, they should have kept it Can. all the way, oh well, cant be 10/10 all the time, its at least an 8...

Fairly Good!
Candi-1022 July 1999
I think this show is fairly good! Well acted and a good script. Good thing to watch right after school!!! It makes you feel better knowing that they are going through worse problems than you!
