  • show Description
  • Hang Time is basically just another teen coming-of-age sitcom. The twist here is, however, that it focuses on a boys basketball team with one female team member. The show is generically the same as the rest - same jokes, same gags, same characters, touches on the same issues - but it is one of the best of the genre. In fact, the series was continuosly the highest rated Saturday morning series on NBC's teen line-up.moreless

    Trivia (43)

    • Grant Hill doesn't actually sign Michael Maxwell's hand.

    • During the final scene with Coach Fuller and Chris, Fuller is shooting and an aerial microphone is visible for a quick second.

    • During the closing seconds of the game, they show the scoreboard. Then in the next frame, Earl drives in for a dunk and the scoreboard (in the background) shows a different score.

    • The gang is in their basketball practice gear, then in street clothes in the next scene, then the power outage occurs. In the next scene, they're in practice gear again during the power outage.

    • In the episodes Son-In-Law and Mary Beth's Parents, Mary Beth's dad is named Burt Pepperton. This episode refers to him as Jonathon Bradley Pepperton III.

    • Jevin Bell's jersey doesn't have the name "Sanders"; perhaps in production they wanted to go with a different last name.

    • #50 from Warrick (Green) is out of bounds when he pops the 3 from the right corner.

    • Danny says that if they lose their next game (making 7 loses in a row), it will be the worst losing streak in the history of Deering. However the season before, they were 2-22. (Although Danny's statement is vague- He could have meant 7 straight losses to start the season is the worst in Deering's history).

    • The episode title shares its name with the 1993 film of the same name starring Janet Jackson and Tupac Shakur.

    • The episode title is based on Florence Nightingale, a real life nurse.

    • Julie Connor (Daniella Deutscher): "Get in me belly!"
      Julie is "loading up on carbs" for the big game, and after Mary-Beth passes her a roll, Julie looks at it, grins, and says "get in me belly!" This is a line from the popular (yet terrible) film "Austin Powers 2: The Spy Who Shagged Me" and is spoken originally by the character Fat Bastard (Mike Myers).

    • The title of the episode is based on the Kevin Costner movie of the same name. In fact the plot mirror the movie with the team more focus on being undefeated instead of just playing for the fun of it. Both feature flashbacks of the characters playing.

  • Hang Time is one of my favourite shows.

    By Aria427, Jul 09, 2008

  • This show is a classic, even if there a cast changes in this show, for six years. It features the girl basketball player in a boys basketball team helping the Deering Tornados win more games since there is only a boys basketball team in that high school.
