very funny TV
29 January 2007 | by danmtaylor66See all my reviews

This is a great example of what TV should be. It was clear from Bateman's early work that he had a long future in acting. I wish you could get this show on DVD. All of the people I know that have seen this show really enjoyed it. For some reason it never caught on. The premise is a kid that is really too smart for his age. Do you ever find yourself saying if I only knew then what I know now; this character knew then. If you ever get a chance to watch it don't miss that chance. The cast of characters play off each other very well. This episode showcases how much people can be influenced by peers and how many young people will go along with things because they think its cool.
