Recess taking the fifth grade was an absolute joke. I loved watching recess when I was a little kid. I grew up with it but this was a mockery of all those years of a great show viewed by many. It was TERRIBLE! the 5th grade and 6th grade club? That was so stupid. So everybody just automatically likes each other, Lawson isn't a jerk, Gellman isn't a bully? It's so stupid.
Then there's the new King. King Freddy who is just terrible. He's an absolutely horrendous king. We need King Bob back! Then there's the kindergardeners. I mean sure its a year in the future so they're in first grade but they still show the same kids from the previous year as kindergardeners which doesn't make any sense.
Also, their teacher is Ms.Finster! She's not a teacher. It's so stupid how they did that. The first episode is just the Board of Education taking away the entire playground and giving the kids crappy food. They should've just stuck with the original TV series as it is not some retarded direct to video movie consisting of three poorly thought out episodes of the recess gang in 5th grade.
Thats another thing. This was sooo badly written. The script is terrible. Old School is the best. They shouldn't have messed with it. It was great in its prime. And last but certainly not least, the worst part about Recess: Taking Fifth Grade is that they REPLACED T.J. HOW CAN THERE BE A NEW PERSON VOICING T.J? HOW COULD THEY DO THAT? WHY WOULD THAT DO THAT? IT DOESN'T MAKE ANY SENSE! ESPECIALLY BECAUSE THEY KEPT ALL THE OTHER ORIGINAL CHARACTERS! IT'S ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS HOW THEY RUINED THIS SHOW! THEY SHOULD'VE STOPPED WHILE IT WAS GOOD! Also, it doesn't even sound like T.J. He sounds really stupid.
all i can say was that this was extremely disappointing considering that it used to be an amazing show.
