I was really looking forward to this. The original film was so much fun, and stands up even now. So the thought of a series around the story was fantastic. Having watched the first episode I can safely say I am truly disappointed. It feels like it wants to be a teen comedy, which is about as far away from the original as it could be.
After starting to write this I watched the second episode, which was a little better, but not much. I will probably stay with it though, just in case it gets better, but I have very little hope that it will.
What a shame.
