SBTB 01.13 - The Election

Last blog's celebration came too soon. That stupid theme song/version was back. This abomination is sung by Michael Damian. It is horrible. I just pulled up his music on Spotify and listened to his most listened-to song, "Rock On - Ver. 09." It is also horrible. Seriously, listen to it all the way through. Then tell me you didn't laugh at the background guy saying "James Dean." Then again, he did get a song on two C-movies: Flicka 2 and Marley and Me: The Puppy Years. He also had a role in the Young and the Restless. That doesn't make me like him any more. But maybe a little less.

Let's move on to a winner.

Nope. Nope. Nope. That is pure, gross Failure. Why is Mr. Belding wearing this? Better question: Why isn't Mr. Belding wearing more of that shirt? I don't know why he is allowed in the student locker room, especially when looking like a gross creep.

The winner I meant was Patrick Thomas O'Brien, the guest star who plays Mr. Dewey.
Now this guy is pure awesome. He captures "9th Grade Algebra Teacher" like no one else - dry as sin and boring as all-get-out. His resume includes plenty of other heavy hitting shows, like Sabrina the Teenage Witch, Caroline in the City, Married with Children, JAG, 7th Heaven, Baywatch, and a host of others. I think the fact that he has appeared in many high profile shows (and some movies) goes to show how well he is regarded for making memorable enough characters.

And speaking of memorable enough characters, any one else get an Annie Hall vibe from Jessie in this episode?
