Cringe Level: 1000
7 March 2019 | by healyjennaSee all my reviews

This show. Oh my god. Is the literal worst. It's almost unbelievable how badly written the characters are and the exchanges that they partake in are so painfully unrealistic. I watch this whenever I babysit and the kids laugh occasionally at the typical cliche jokes- but I watch on with the pain that each episode brings. A show like this wouldn't even be so bad if the characters weren't so terribly executed. In my opinion it's the writers' fault for such a poor execution of attempted entertainment. The absolute worst part of this show. And I mean the worst- is the main character, Mr. Young, and his infatuation with one of his students. Though he is his student's age- probably around 15 or 16- it is still very creepy for kids, the target audience, to be watching this show and see that a teacher's crush on a student is normalized. Very bad on the writer's part. They definitely sneak in more "adult" humor in some of their exchanges with one another and it makes my skin crawl. Some of the characters are funny, like Derby and sometimes Slab, but those moments are few and far between. The actor who plays Mr. Young is okay in this character, but I've seen him in a short film before and he was incredible with the role he was portraying. Again scripts and talented writers make all the difference.
