  • Johnny Slash Rules!

    "Square Pegs" lasted only one season and it's too bad that CBS didn't renew it for a second season. CBS couldn't tell a good show from a bad show. And the TV Guide article on the show didn't help much. It's too bad, I love the show very much. I only wish that more episodes were produced and it movie to a network the accepted them. I love the characters very much, but my personal favorite is Johnny slash. he's cool and he's the best thing about the show. The rest of the cast is cool, which makes "Square Pegs," more than a show. It's one of the most coolest show I have ever sat though.moreless

  • I fell in love with Sarah Jessica Parker watching this show. Long before you, Mr. Broderick

    8.0
    Ms. Parker was absolutely fabulous during this show. Actually, I got to give a nod to the whole cast. The writing was suspect, but we'll be forgiving.



    How delightful that this teen star went on to bigger and better things without having to experience the terror of contemporaries. No drug issues. No eating disorders. No scandals. Just a talented actress who grew up to be an assidious member of the Hollywood elite.



    Ms. Parker is also, IMHO, the lovliest actress out there. She carries herself so very professionally, and her husband compliments her and visa versa.



    While I will probably be eternally jealous of Mr. Broderick, I can only wish them the very best, and thank them for setting an example that so many other "famous" couples would do well to emulate.



    Square Pegs introduced us to this lovely lady, and I await her next project.moreless
  • It had potential.

    7.5
    Square Pegs was created and produced by former Saturday Night Live writer Ann Beatts. Her stated goal was to make a "Dobie Gillis" for the 80s. I don't know about that, but this was a funny show about high school life. It featured an excellent cast and off-beat guest stars. Square Pegs lasted only one season and was the subject of a TV Guide article that claimed the series was ruined by rampant cocaine use. Beatts denied the charge.moreless
  • A true cult classic

    9.0
    This show was underappreciated during its original run, but over the years it has developed quite a following. We may never know the real reason why it was cancelled. There have been so many stories over the years. It doesn't even matter. This is another one of those shows that we appreciate so much more because of its short run. Had it run for five or six years we probably wouldn't remember it as fondly as we do. Everyone was so talented I don't know why they didn't all go on to be as successful as Sarah Jessica Parker, Tracy Nelson and Jami Gertz. RIP Merritt Butrick.moreless
