Yeah, you thought it was rain.

Still unsure

October 22nd, 2002 · No Comments · Potpourri

The Boston Public premiere was last night. New students, new faculty, new haircuts… Same shit. Brooke Harper was as whiny, squinty, and annoying as ever. She still needs to be smacked around. I enjoyed the show, really, but at times it just seemed like a parody of itself. I seem to recall myself last season cracking a joke along the lines of, “Well, at least they haven’t had a student flush a baby down a toilet.”

I can see where they’re going with this promised Harry Senate fairwell, and I don’t like it. I thought we had resolved those issues? I thought he was the coolest teacher there? Who’s going to call parents dumbasses when it needs to be done? Who’s going to do fucked up shit to beat sense into the kids and still be good friends with Harper? This young turk with the corduroy jacket and the wash-me facial hair sure as hell won’t cut it. Most importantly, who is going to shag the hell out of Ronnie-of-nine Cook? Only one man is worthy of that, and if Harry Senate doesn’t do it, all we’ve got left to fantasize about is the faint possibility that Jeri Ryan is only screwing Brannon Braga (if she even still is *shudder*) to advance her career, however backward that might seem.

Where the hell was Lauren Davis, by the way? The show left a lot to be desired, but I’m hopeful that it will pick up.

You’re suspended.
