  • Great Script

    the idea that teachers can run back and foward while dealing with school problems such as bulling and students issues, and play online golf, its a good storyline again the script writers have achived a great script again with good jokes and excellent one liners. I also like the bit where he mentones that nothing can go wrong and off course alice walks through teh door crashing his laptop into the ground, so funny, i think and hope that this show has a futre of some sort but was looking on here and notuced that the other episodes only recieved 3 reviews each so we'll just keep watchingmoreless
