Teachers - S01E07


Written by and starring acclaimed comedy troupe The Katydids, "Teachers" shows their hilariously warped perspective as six elementary school teachers trying to mold young minds, even though their own lives aren't really together.

    We’ve all seen this world mined before in movies and TV programs alike. What makes Teachers stand out is the way in which all of these humorous Katies handle the trouble their offbeat and sometimes lewd and rude characters have made.

    All six of the Katydids pop with strong comedic performances in Teachers, giving you faith that there will be no lag in this 10-episode first season. And the series also benefits greatly from casting kids who aren’t annoying and also knowing how often to employ them in the jokes.

    A funny sitcom with the good-posture backbone of truth.

    Yahoo TV Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    Teachers takes an awfully familiar-sounding log-line and makes it feel fresh through sheer execution, thanks to the writing and wonderfully droll tone.

    Not every joke in the pilot is worthy of a gold star, but they deserve some extra credit for effort. [8/15 Jan 2016, p.98]

  • Robert Lloyd

    Some will feel right at home here right away; and some will be in bed by then. For the rest, it's worth investing in a few episodes to get used to the milieu and the music; though the humor stays rough, the show feels sunnier as the company grows more familiar.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Mitchel Broussard

    It feels a bit like early-era Community in a way: a rock-solid groundwork of a premise that doesn’t do anything too zany or bizarre or risky, but does it with enough of a wink and strut that you can see the potential for something special in the near future.

    We Got This Covered Full Review
  • Molly Eichel

    Teachers still feels like a webseries, just in a longer format. There’s a lack of fleshed out narrative in the four episodes screened for critics.... [But] Their comedy lacks vanity, and their onscreen chemistry together is quite good, with each member of the troupe filling a different stereotype for Teachers.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Neil Genzlinger

    The show is essentially one joke--“You shouldn’t say/do that around children”--told a bunch of different ways.... The Katydids’ tastes run toward the vulgar. That is generally to the show’s detriment--it would be funnier if it didn’t mistake crass for cutting-edge so often.

  • David Wiegand

    The problem is that the writers--i.e., the cast--don’t seem to have any idea about an overall story arc. Without that necessary ingredient, the show’s potential is pretty much squandered after the first episode.
