Puberty is a tough time and most people today don’t have the patience or nerve to teach adolescents, especially in America, where many children have psychological problems or come to school with a gun. Countless high-school series thrive on this situation, but with BOSTON PUBLIC star producer and author David E. Kelly (ALLY MC BEAL, PICKET FENCES) once again shows his talent to breathe new life into genres left for dead. With an unparalleled display of droll and touching moments, Kelly weaves together different plots and transforms the school setting into a very amusing world stage. Since realistic depictions of school situations are today the domain of imaginative book authors, the series’ entertainment value is a plus.
