    **** I'm so angry that they've managed to ruin what was once my fav film - School of Rock - by making a stupid tv series out of it. It's on YouTube, they're so far from the original and the songs aren't even ****ing rock anymore, it's more of a show along the lines of Victorious or some other 12-year old ****. And ****ing hell they totally missed the point of School of Rock by making Tomika a skinny beaut. The point of having Tomika in the first place was that she was fat, had low self-esteem and didn't think that people could like her despite having a great voice. I watched the first episode. The characters have no depth whatsoever. WTF they're a bunch of annoying 12-year olds. The characters in the original film all had some kind of backstory and depth - Zack had an overprotective dad, he was a sheltered kid who discovered a passion for rock and music, Summer was an overachiever and an ass-licking perfectionist who in the end managed to work as a team and couldn't care less about grades, Freddy was this problematic angsty kid who turned to music to let out his anger and inhibitions. I could go on and on about this.

    If you watch the series you will be pissed off (assuming you've seen the film). Ugh the Asian kid in the series is nothing more than just the average school kid. Lawrence, in the film on the other hand, was this stereotypical nerd who stuck to his comfort zone (classical music, piano, being quiet, reserved). He didn't think he could pass as a rockstar but his teacher convinced him that he could. He even had a solo keyboard part in the final song.

    Hiya OP,

    I've moved this over to TV Shows. Just a quick thing too… when you intend to swear, rather than self-censoring, simply type the word and allow the swear filter to censor things for you.

    Cheers!
