You've Got it Wrong iTunes..
Despite what others may think, this show is quite funny. But iTunes has it all wrong. They shouldn't advertise it as the start of John Travolta's career, but rather as just a good show. Even though Travolta has some comedy, the real star of this show is Mr. Kotter. This show can always put a smile on almost anyone's face. It is worth buying, even though it's old. A new show does not always make a good show.
Ouuh! Ouuh! Ouuh!
It is sooo 70's and sooo cool! This one rates up there with Sanford & Son and All in the Family as a comedy that really helped define an era and offered a unique set of over the top characters. It influenced many other shows and movies over the years. For example, if you watched Saved by the Bell in the 80's, then you can't help but see the similarities between Screech and Horseshack. If you have never seen it, don't hesitate.

I just LOVE this show!! Thank you Itunes for adding this to the TV shows!!! It is soo funny to see John Travolta playing the part of an lazy & absent minded teenager, who has nothing better to do than comb his hair and flirt with the girls!!! All these guys are VERY funny and this show will keep you laughing! I believe this is one of those classics that nobody should miss out on!!!
