Has anyone else out there watched this new show on NBC called Teachers? I've checked out the first two episodes, mainly out of curiosity to see how well the profession is portrayed, but also because the girls on it are pretty cute. But I gotta say... not that funny, buddy. Maybe it's just that I'm a third-grade teacher, and the television show is set in a high school, or perhaps it's just the total black hole that the script seems to come from.
It makes me wonder about how other professions feel when there are TV shows about them. Do medical interns find the show Scrubs as funny as I do? (Because it is freaking hilarious.) What do firefighters think about Rescue Me? Are forensics pathologists satisfied with their television representation on CSI? And do good-looking crash survivors on strange, mysterious, deserted islands find Lost to be an accurate account?
Myself, as a teacher, I find my life to be truly more like Jack Bauer's on 24. Especially in the minutes leading up to three o'clock everyday, when I can hear the beeping of that imaginary big-screen clock counting down.
Let's hear some opinions there, folks!
