    The Wonder Years had created some fun moments inside the classroom and introduced us to some crazy and interesting teachers and this was another one of them tonight as Kevin experienced a very strict math teacher, or so he thought.



    As someone who was a good student, but did not really excel at math, I could relate to this story and his plight. While I could relate, from a comedy perspective the laughs were a little short tonight. Sometimes this show trades interesting writing for jokes, and I'm not really a fan of that swap.



    Solid episode, but not a classic.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In this episode, Kevin is in Miss Martinson's French class. Then, in Episode #48 Ninth Grade Man, Kevin is in Miss Falcinella's French class with new student Madeline. He says in narration that "French was a language I simply didn't understand. The only thing he could say to Madeline was "do you want some butter in French. Apparently, he didn't learn anything in the 8th grade French class.

    • Mr Collins draws a venn-diagram on the board with a '0' in the right circle. Then he asks something to the class. When he gets back to the board, there is a '2' in the right circle. The whole drawing is new if you look close.

  • QUOTES (3)

    • Narrator: There's a certain look that only a trusted friend can give you. A look that says, you're about to make a total fool of yourself. I was getting that look.

    • Narrator: Still, the beginning of eighth grade looked like it was gonna be a smooth landing. We weren't the lowest men on the totem pole anymore. We were men… among seventh grade boys. More importantly, we were men among seventh grade girls.

    • Narrator: The transition from summer to fall is a tricky one. Like astronauts returning from space. We had to re-enter the atmosphere of school carefully, so the sudden change in pressure wouldn't kill us.
