    Schooled at its goofiest recognizes the value of teachers.

    Rough edges are quickly sanded, and yet the players are good.

    As it stands, Schooled doesn’t offer any convincing reasons to watch other than the crossovers from an already familiar world, and the requisite ‘90s references are too lightweight to be a true vehicle for nostalgia.

    Schooled contains none of the mother ship’s bellows and whistles, thus laying bare its own conventionality.

    There’s possibly some potential here. But the only episode of Schooled made available for review neither rings the bell--or answers it.

    The pilot lacks the snap and vigorous, unruly wit of ABC’s most successful recent sitcoms, from “Black-ish” to “Speechless,” saddling more than one actor with painfully earnest dialogue about what it means to be a teacher and Michalka with a less-than-credible arc. Her story, indeed, resolves so tidily by pilot’s end as to raise the question of where the rest of the show can still go.

    [The Goldbergs is] a good show because beneath that very superficial hook it's deeply personal. Schooled, at least thus far, is not, and it's that lack of center that still needs tinkering.

    I wish this show was longer - lots of funny characters and layers of things happening. For a 30 minute show we only get maybe 20 minutes.I wish this show was longer - lots of funny characters and layers of things happening. For a 30 minute show we only get maybe 20 minutes. Can't wait for more shows to see how all of these characters evolve :) Expand

    The flagship show "the Goldbergs" has been running on fumes for awhile as the actors age out of the formula and the premises get more and moreThe flagship show "the Goldbergs" has been running on fumes for awhile as the actors age out of the formula and the premises get more and more ridiculous. Schooled has similar issues. It's incredibly broad and then goes in for a predicable 'moment'.
    I don't see this show somehow improving. I will say it is slightly better than the first attempt at this "The Goldbergs 1990-Something Spinoff" which was abysmal. They basically just plugged Laney into that idea and it's not much better.

    I give it a 2 only because Coach Mellor is always great. Otherwise, the show is a snoozefest, right down to the replica Ruben Amaro, Jr. TheI give it a 2 only because Coach Mellor is always great. Otherwise, the show is a snoozefest, right down to the replica Ruben Amaro, Jr. The Goldbergs has outlived it's story. Adam has become even more annoying than Bev (hats off to Wendy for playing an awful Mom so superbly). If it weren't for George Segal (the only reason I started watching in the first place, I wouldn't watch the Goldbergs either.. Both these shows can go. Expand
