This show is such a colossal waste of talent and it further perpetuates the stereotype of multi-camera sitcoms being stuck in the past. This feels more like a TV Land sitcom than a broadcast network sitcom. Everything feels so incredibly dated and/or lame. A gym teacher who regularly makes a Magnum P.I. reference? Students who routinely talk about google or twitter just to show their tech abilities? I am around teenagers a lot and they do not talk like that.
I didn't even get to the horrible jokes featuring Peri Gilpin that referenced both Notorious B.I.G. and Diddy. When you have people like Robinson and Gilpin, who were fantastic on The Office and Frasier, you know this show can do better. The writing is just so pathetically lame and it's clear that those writing have no idea how teachers or teenagers talk. It was a good concept with a good cast but the execution is just terrible.
