Great Morals, Yet Fun For Parents

If youre a fan of Fluffy, otherwise known as Gabriel Iglesias, you're going to love this show. It boarders on the same kind of content as his stand up comedy. No visual sexualized content, but a few lewd jokes for parents to catch. This comical show is a bit of a slow burn, so it's the perfect choice for a casual day or break on the couch.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (5 ):
Kids say (29 ):

With endearing characters and sharply written jokes, this throwback series will remind viewers of classic high school sitcoms like Welcome Back, Kotter and Saved by the Bell. The rhythms are the same (line, line, joke, pause for live-studio laughs, topper with even bigger laughs) and so is the structure, with one big dilemma per show introduced in the first few minutes tidily wrapped up at the end, with everyone smiling, or hugging, or both. But like those hoary sitcoms of yesterday, Mr. Iglesias goes down easily because you quickly grow fond of the quirky characters saying funny stuff.

Importing the same gentle self-deprecating humor he employs in his standup, Gabriel Iglesias is chief amongst said lovable characters. "Dedicated teacher" is an easy hero to get behind, and Iglesias makes it feel natural. The other teachers on staff are fun, too: charming goofus Tony (Jacob Vargas), overachieving Abby (Maggie Geha), grumbling almost-retiree Ray (Richard Gant). Even back-of-the-classroom students may want to show up for this class.
