It all started 15 years ago!
Literally I looked it up and it happened on this date 15 years ago!
On April 7th, 1999 Comedy Central blessed the world with one of the greatest TV shows ever to be on Television!
You may be asking yourself
And you’re right to ask these questions! I mean what show has their lead character look like this?
I mean she’s really unfortunate looking! This ladies and gentlemen is Jerri Blank and this is her story
‘Hello. I’m Jerry Blank. 32 years ago I dropped out of High School and ran away from home. Oh, I made a lot of friends… did a lot of time. I was a boozer, a user and a loser. I stole the TV. – Did some more time. But now I’m back in school. And though the faces may have changed, the hassles are just the same.’
It’s important to know that the actress Amy Sedaris is actually quite gorgeous!
Of course she wasn’t the only person on the show
Her mentors/teachers Geoffrey Jellineck (Paul Dinello) and Chuck Noblett (Stephen Colbert) who are also secret lovers.
Principal Onyx Blackman (Greg Hollimon)
Her Dad Guy Blank (Roberto Gari)
Stepbrother Derrick Blank (Larc Spies)
And Stepmother Sara Blank (Deborah Rush)
It’s important to know that her dad doesn’t move. Literally he doesn’t move or speak. Her Stepmom and brother hater her. And that the High School staff are literally the worst adults on the planet and should not be molding the minds of youth.
But Thank God for all of that!
The show itself was definitely not appropriate for me to watch at 14 but fuck rules!
Each episode was about a different issue that teens had to deal with. But this was not your normal after school special.
They would take something like being a virgin and put it in a blender with crack cocaine, heroine and 3 different STD’s. The blended product was the episode. They were perfect!
The show lasted for 30 perfect episodes and yes I’m totally bias.
So at this point you may be asking yourself why should I try to watch this show now?
