Teachers

Post by sine » Nov 27th 2002, 6:08 pm

Just finished watching the third episode of British drama/"semi-comedy" series Teachers. I haven't seen the first two episodes, but judging by what I saw tonight watching the series seems worth spending time on -- although I must admit that I'd probably have that take on any series that has a Belle & Sebastian song on its soundtrack :)

So, the reason I'm posting this to mscl forum is that tonight's episode had a few elements "from" "The Substitute": one subplot involved English class reading/being introduced to Shakespeare's Sonnets. I tried to spot another (possibly unintended) mscl-references but didn't have much success -- although the main character, English teacher, assigned students to write a love poem of their own as homework and a female student came up with one that had a line that essentially said "I love the way he stands." 'To stand' ain't that far from 'to lean,' is it? :wink:

Oh, and the sonnet read -- aloud, by teacher, in front of the class -- wasn't the same one Mr. Racine read.

There's a god awful new American sitcom by the same name. Some of the worst writing I've ever seen on television. They're definitely not playing Belle & Sebastian. The thing about it is that Sarah Shahi, who plays Carmen on the L Word is on it; a pretty telling sign, considering the season 3 finale, that she's not returning. I hate to see her go from such a great show and awesome character, not to mention hot hot pants and lingerie, to such a bad show as this. The British version, if indeed these shows are at all related, must have been a lot better.
