What the hell ever happened to Boston Public?
No, seriously, this show ran on Fox for a few years, was a critical success airing before Ally McBeal and then Fox just dumped it right in the prime of its’ success. Okay, let’s talk about this show…
Boston Public is an American drama television series created by David E. Kelley and broadcast on Fox. Set in Boston, the series centers on Winslow High School, a fictional public high school in the Boston Public Schools district. It features a large ensemble cast and focuses on the work and private lives of the various teachers, students, and administrators at the school. It aired from October 2000 to January 2004. Its slogan was “Every day is a fight. For respect. For dignity. For sanity.”
My god, how the hell did Boston Public never catch on? Not only was the theme song really good but this features one of the best casts you could possibly get for a TV show, Chi McBride, Loretta Devine, Michael Rappaport, Anthony Heald, Jeri Ryan, Jessalyn Gilsig, Nicky Katt, Sharon Leal, Rashida Jones, this show was just so damn good and then, it just vanished, it never finished out its’ main stories and it just left never to be heard from again.
This is another show created by David E. Kelley and once again, it’s another winner with a great theme song that perfectly sets the tone for the show you’re about to see and hopefully, one day, this show will be available to see again because this show had not only one of the most underrated theme songs but it’s one of the most underrated shows in TV history.
