The opening episode of his new A&E reality show almost physically painful to watch. The good news is that if the viewer sticks it out, as Danza did, things will get better as the weeks roll along. They never get perfect. But he will eventually find his footing and win some props.
What's left, then, is Danza playing (and there's really the operative word) at being a teacher, with the show employing the customary musical cues and editing tricks to try to generate suspense about whether he can actually teach the kids to appreciate "Of Mice and Men."
