    Recess is about a group of kids who are let out for recess for social interaction and playtime. This show is awesome and one of my favorites. Each character is stero-typical: jock, geek, nerd, bully, cool kid, fat dumb kid, shy kid etc. The jokes are really hilarious, the characters are relatable and this is overall a fun show. For kids it's just a crapload of fun, but for adults there's actually messages about society that you wouldn't of noticed when you were little. Great show! Rating: 10/10moreless

    There's a reason why this show has survived, in spite of some of the bad things about it. It's very much like a kid version of "The Simpsons" in some ways, but it's not a rip-off. It's a kids' version of society, with stereotypes like the cool kids, the mean girls, the loner, the jocks, the nerds, and a bunch of others. The main six kids are stereotypes in themselves: the cool kid, the tough kid, the sensitive kid, the jock, the nerd, and the shy kid. But the appeal comes from the sociology and how the playground society works. They have laws (the Kids' Unwritten Code of Honour), a ruler, and other parts of society seen in today's world. In many ways, "Recess" is a well-thought out kid-friendly variation of "Lord Of The Flies", doing a clever take on society in a child's world.moreless

    I used to love this show when I was little! Watching the episodes now It's like... well, ok... but It was entertaining back then! I loved the squirm-worthy episode where Spinelli and TJ actually.... ugh, KISS!



    Good times, lol.
