I know it’s ridiculous but I always feel second-hand betrayal when a someone is a huge fan of something, then they have an S.O., and then they become less of a fan because their S.O. is more important to them.

Like Susan how could you?? I thought your love for the show/game/ship was stronger than this?

TV Shows about Teachers - Ranked From Best to Worst

Lately, there’s been a lot of TV shows about teachers. In less than one season we’ve had “Get Educated,” “Mr. Robinson,” “Teachers,” and “Those Who Can’t.” I’m a fan of this because we have a surplus of shows about the F.B.I, doctors, superheroes, C.S.I. etc. and not enough about the profession that makes the biggest difference. Sometimes TV shows get it right  and sometimes they don’t. This is a list from Best to Worst of TV shows about Teachers. 

#1 “Get Educated” - “ Take “Modern Family” or “The Office,” but replace the cast with a group of teachers and teenagers. Jokes that punch you in the face and make you gut-bustingly laugh. The show doesn’t try to be funny by having the teachers be outrageous. Instead, it’s genuine, clever, and it really shows how teachers can make a difference. And how students can make a difference to the lives of teachers.

#2 “Boston Public” - Some serious sh*t happened on “Boston Public.” It was a drama like no other. At the time, it was groundbreaking and sent chills down your spine with the conflicts these teachers had to deal with. It scared many of us who wanted to become teachers, but it was great TV. 

#3 “Welcome Back, Kotter”  - How could you not love the hero of this show?  Gabe Kotter, a compassionate teacher returns to hit roots and teaches the troubled class called The Sweathogs. And look how f*cking young John Travolta was. 

#4 “Teachers” - TV Land just got a whole lot more vulgar. Let’s see if it works out for them. “Teachers” is based on the webseries of the same name and it has some pretty crazy jokes. It feels almost like “South Park” at times with a bunch of teachers. And I like both those things.

#5 “Mr. Peepers” - A lost gem of the 1950′s. Mr. Peepers was a science teachers who faced a ton of funny problems, but he was never outsmarted. He was the true definition of a nice guy and a nice TV show.

#6 “Glee” - The show started off strong and the teacher storylines captured your attention and you really rooted for Emma and Will to be together. The one problem with the show (and also why it was successful so this is just my opinion) was it was just too much singing.

#7 “Mr. Robinson”- This show had some potential, but it just wasn’t enough to last. Craig Robinson is a super likable guy, but I feel we just want to see him in an ensemble comedy.

#8 “Those Who Can’t” - The most likable character on this show is the librarian. She also gives the best performance and she’s not even a teacher. Does anyone else find it weird that “Teachers” and “Those Who Can’t” came out around the exact same time and “Teachers” is all about female teachers and “Those Who Can’t” is all about male teachers. The show has potential and it feels a lot like “It’s Always Sunny,” but it has to find its groove. It would help if it had more female main characters. Tru TV already renewed it for a 2nd season, so hopefully it gets better.

Ugh, I'm so glad you love MFMM too - such a great show :D

Seriously, how could you not love that show?  Phryne is a forward-thinking woman in the 1920s, her best friends are a Catholic woman and a doctor, and she and Jack have some of the best chemistry ever to grace the screen.

One of the best scenes ever because he was “trying to distract” her.  Right.  Like anyone believed that.  But he says it anyway because he’s totally in denial for all of Season 1.  Going to go with Miss Fisher on this one:

Also, mad props for Phryne in this episode because she posed nude for an artist and the painting is flamboyantly displayed in her parlor.  If that’s not hardcore, I don’t know what is.

And in her speech to Mr. Butler the first time they met, ending with the rushed sentence of:

The fan dance from “Murder Most Scandalous” remains to be one of the best moments of my life. BECAUSE JACK’S FACE OKAY.  AND HUGH–POOR, INNOCENT, BABY-FACED HUGH WHO LOOKS ABSOLUTELY TRAUMATIZED.  AND THEN CEC AND BERT LOOK LIKE THEY’RE ABOUT TO START SELLING TICKETS, I SWEAR TO GOD.  THIS SHOW.

Literally died when Jack and Phryne sang “Let’s Misbehave” together.

When she fastened his tie, I screamed, “FOR GOD’S SAKE KISS THE GIRL” at my TV.  (As did my mother, by the way–she ships it harder than I do.)

Rolled when she started talking about knowing her knots because of a Portugese sailor she knew once, and Jack’s reaction was basically, “Wait, this is Miss Fisher–I don’t want to know.”

AND THE SPEECH FROM JACK IN “DEATH DEFYING ACTS” ABOUT HER PARADE OF MEN AND *stutters for a moment, waves a hand wildly* TANGO DANCERS.

And just the episode “Death & Hysteria” in general, especially all conversations revolving around the time Jack raided a brothel in Chinatown.  That’s the first time I noticed that Mac totally ships it, too.  And the Ronaldo the rodeo rider story–poor Dot.

AND OH MY GOD THE ENDING OF “DEATH DO US PART.”  HOLY CRAP, BATMAN.  I CAN DIE A HAPPY WOMAN.

…Huh.  Somehow I turned this into a Miss Fisher’s Murder Mysteries appreciation post.

Also, I have to say that, for a show set in the 1920s and the typical we-were-trying-to-be-historically-accurate bull that usually accompanies said shows, they talk about the taboo of 1920s society:  gay relationships, interracial relationships, “electrical massagers” *cough*, abortion, and a whole host of other things I can’t think about.

Currently watching “Death & Hysteria” again as I type this.

Something I realized recently is that in order to befriend your idols, you shouldn’t show them how much you love them. You should show them how much they could love you. Be yourself. Show them every bit of you worth loving. Show them that you’re a cool person in your own way and not some crazy obsessed fan.

And after you’ve showed them everything, it’s really up to them to decide if it’ll work out.
