Boston Public 4/07/03

How the hell did this show win a quality in television award?

I thought this ep was ok.

The converstion between Marla and Harvey about her and Troyer having sex was hilarious.

I was wondering the same thing.

The only part of the show that I really liked was when Zack stepped up and punched Dave, the arrogant prick from the superintendent's office, in the face a couple of times. What did he expect - a pat on the back when he told Roni's boyfriend that he made a move on her? Dave - you are a dumbass. And I think you are rubbing off on Roni, who is now starting to irk the hell out of me.

There was singing again in this episode. Can't they go one w/out it?

I think the category was Best Show Named 'Boston Public'...*

*[Apologies to das for the hijacking of the punchline..]

As far as the show is concerned..

Enjoyed:

-- the Guber substitute teacher subplot..

-- looking at that blonde chick..

-- the aforementioned fight at the end..

This show is in a freefall now.

Let's make a list regarding this episode:
1) Singing. Gospel singing yet.

2) Imagining Marla getting it on with MiniMe. Her fat sasquatch head is bigger than his whole body.

3) The "Dungeon" students really want to learn! In my h.s., the special ed kids were more likely to take a crap in the desk and carve their initials in someone's face than open a book.

4) The super-hot & popular blonde actually notices the ubergeek. Not to mention being pals with the genius pre-teen.

5) Dopey Ronnie.

6) Finally, my favorite, The Slow Clap! Yes!

Honk!

The blonde chick is so friggin hot.

The Verne Troyer plot line w/ Marla his hilarious.

An OK episode. I find it more amusing than anything. I don't watch it for the thought provoking storylines.

That's the only reason I watch it anymore.

The geek's speech at the end sounded like it was lifted from the end of Revenge of the Nerds. The slow clap comes from any number of teen movies and was spoofed brilliantly in Not Another Teen Movie.

Oh yeah just to add - that blonde is hot.

I *think* this is who you are talking about...





If so, she and her sister have a web site... www.peldon.com.

Really pleased that the Marla plot thread is over .... there are certain images that you simply don't want to be carrying around in your head!

FYI - not only is BP not on tonight but FOX is also bumping it next Monday for a special edition of American Idol (where there is no voting or competition or whatever they hell they do on that show).

I was thinking the exact same thing when I watched it this weekend. Right when he started the speech, I said "wait a second that is the NERDS speech!"
