I actually remember, God only knows why, tuning into this show quite by accident the Sunday morning it premiered on the Fox network (I'm pretty sure it was on FOX Sunday mornings)and thinking to myself, "What an awful title for a show, some kid is gonna get ragged on because of this in some grade school." So I sat down to give it a see. Pleasantly surprised that it wasn't as bad as I had anticipated though it was, by no means, a real winner either. Still, it was easy enough to pass the time on an otherwise empty time slot for the time it was on. It was a guilty pleasure that I fondly remember to this day of tuning in to view to see what that wisecracking Buzz would do and say resulting in mayhem for that day. Go get 'em Buzz, we need more dummies just like you in this world.
