"Bad Teacher" review by Sundi 5/4/14
Airs Thursdays 9:30/8:30c on CBS

The series premiere of Bad Teacher introduced viewers to Meredith Davis (Ari Graynor), a beautiful, but financially challenged young divorcee, looking to find her way into another rich husband. A seemingly shallow sexpot, Meredith charms audiences as the champion for a group of unpopular girls; relating to their feelings as outcasts, she tells the Charismatic as she is sharp, Meredith represents an emerging female character that can capitalize on her sexuality, sort out her own messes, and doesn’t take any crap. Surrounded by an immensely talented supporting cast, Bad Teacher is one of my favorites of the midstart season.

Sara Gilbert plays Irene, the dorky, too-eager, best friend that acts as a foil to Meredith’s confidence and swagger. Ryan Hansen plays Coach Kopski, the charming man-boy that will probably end up being her love interest – aside from all the rich dads she is trying to pick up at her new job as middle school history teacher. Having lied on her resume and charmed Principal Carl (David Alan Grier), she has absolutely no idea what she’s doing as a history teacher, aside from her errand to find the kid with the richest dad. Her professional rival, Jenny, played by Kristen Davis, is competitive and catty and is the least of the charming of the cast.

Even though the first three episodes have followed a pretty predictable pattern, I think this show can do well. I like it, and not just because I might be a Bad Teacher myself.
