    We’ve all seen this world mined before in movies and TV programs alike. What makes Teachers stand out is the way in which all of these humorous Katies handle the trouble their offbeat and sometimes lewd and rude characters have made.

    A funny sitcom with the good-posture backbone of truth.

    All six of the Katydids pop with strong comedic performances in Teachers, giving you faith that there will be no lag in this 10-episode first season. And the series also benefits greatly from casting kids who aren’t annoying and also knowing how often to employ them in the jokes.

    It feels a bit like early-era Community in a way: a rock-solid groundwork of a premise that doesn’t do anything too zany or bizarre or risky, but does it with enough of a wink and strut that you can see the potential for something special in the near future.

    Some will feel right at home here right away; and some will be in bed by then. For the rest, it's worth investing in a few episodes to get used to the milieu and the music; though the humor stays rough, the show feels sunnier as the company grows more familiar.

    Teachers still feels like a webseries, just in a longer format. There’s a lack of fleshed out narrative in the four episodes screened for critics.... [But] Their comedy lacks vanity, and their onscreen chemistry together is quite good, with each member of the troupe filling a different stereotype for Teachers.

    The problem is that the writers--i.e., the cast--don’t seem to have any idea about an overall story arc. Without that necessary ingredient, the show’s potential is pretty much squandered after the first episode.

Most of it is not true, but the same holds true for lawyer and doctor shows. The cast is funny. My favorite episode is Hall of Shame when Ms. Snap is doing the janitor. Ms. Snap and Ms. Watson are the strongest characters. Overall, a funny show. 10:30 at night? Too late! Expand

This was originally a web series and now this comedy group of Katie's have turned it into a series. I really enjoyed it, but i think it just depends on your sense of humor. Read some of the critics reviews and maybe you will get what they are setting out to do. Make people laugh and make fun of the world that we live in. I love it! Expand

The writing won't have you laughing out loud but the character portrayal of the actors keeps it moving along in a manner that has me looking forward to the next episode and in some ways, wishing that I had gone to a school with such quirky and weird teachers.
