Those Who Cant - S01 E06


Those Who Can't is truTV's first foray into full-length scripted comedy. The half-hour comedy follows three trouble-making teachers, played by show creators Adam Cayton-Holland, Andrew Orvedahl and Ben Roy of the Denver-based comedy troupe The Grawlix. More inept than the kids they teach, they're out to beat the system as they struggle to survive each day on their own terms. Joining them is Maria Thayer the school librarian with an insuppressible passion for life.

    They’re like truffle pigs, rooting for humor, and they find it with a frequency that’s damn impressive. It’s not subtle, it’s not realistic, and it’s not reinventing the wheel. It’s just plain old funny—relentlessly, defiantly funny.

    These situations are, of course, the bare-bones means to a lot of mischievous and seemingly improvised ends, much of it very funny.

    While the characters sometimes border on cartoonish, they also manage to showcase an underdog quality that will have the audiences rooting for them anyway, and they’re somewhat grounded by the rest of the cast, including librarian Abbey Logan (Maria Thayer).

    [Those Who Can't] is a bit better than “Teachers,” because it’s disgusting.... It goes in big on gross-out humor, crass puns and general raunchiness. But it does so with some originality, thanks to the core three performers and a well-deployed supporting cast.

    The joke is that the teachers of Smoot High have never grown up so they interact with the students as peers. This is supposed to make the endless cycle of scheming and abuse hilarious, but it's far too familiar to be anything but exhausting. And a little bit depressing.

    The performers in Those Who Can’t are probably nice people--they’re clearly smart, even if their show’s concept is woefully derivative.
