Recess: Taking the Fifth Grade (2003) Poster

Wow - fifth grade. But what good is practically being a grown-up when the teacher's a big sourpuss?

| Recess taking the fifth grade
Recess taking the fifth grade was a great show! I loved it. The voices were different, but 2 me, as long as there is Recess shows, the voices don't matter at all. The first part was about TJ protesting against the school board of education. It was okay. The second part was a secret club for grade 5 and 6 graders only. The show was funny. The 3 and last part was Halloween. Spinelli decides she is to old trick or treat, so she stays at home. Then TJ, Mikey and everyone goes out by them selves, and thinks they outgrew it too after a while. Fans of the TV series will love this show. Any way, the best parts were when Spinelli went to the pumpkin patch, when Spinelli set the rest of the gang up, and when at the end TJ stopped and waved good bye from the door, and Miss Finster sighed and slammed it in his face. I thought it was funny because on the TV introduction, just before the show starts, TJ waves to the audience and Miss Finster slams it in his face. This show was so funny! Its the best recess show ever! So go and watch it!
