Storyline

Otis Drexell is a corporate raider who is known for getting the deal done. He is then caught red handed for dodging taxes, and given a suspended sentence so long as he works as a school teacher at an elementary school until the back taxes are paid. Every week, Otis would do the best he could of making the adjustment of going from the boardroom to the classroom with the help of his two daughters. Written by Pat McCurry

Trivia

On the wall of Drexell's classroom a progression of American flags is shown from 1776 to the year 2000. The year 2000 shows a flag of Japan. This raised a tremendous controversy with World War II veterans groups who claimed that, even in jest, it was in very poor taste. See more »

Mediocre
1 August 2000 | by eightx10See all my reviews

I am writing the review merely as an informational service; the show was little worth commenting on. The plot was unrealistic (he was a criminal and got a job as a school teacher?), and the children were written more as adults than children.

Only sparsely funny, this show is deservedly off the air.
