Not the "classic" I expected
Recently, TV Land ran their marathon of "Welcome Back, Kotter", so I watched a few episodes. What stuck out most about the show was how amazingly, astonishingly awful the acting was. The episodes still had John Travolta, so I know they came from the early years, which means they are supposed to be the "good" episodes. Now, the dialogue and plotting weren't bad, and some of the jokes they tried to make might have even been funny --- if anyone on the show had a sense of comic timing. There was a lot of dead time between every line of dialogue; it seemed as if the actors needed to take a second to remember their lines, or weren't sure it was their cue to speak. It was like a bad high school production. Of course, the terribly broken pacing kills the humor. After watching two episodes, I had had all I could take. It makes me wonder how the show ever became popular.
