Flashback Friday-City Guys (1997-2001)

One of the more underused narratives in the high school genre is the story of a student or students just trying to deal with life while trying to not get the attention of a teacher or principal.

This was the basic narrative of the late 1990’s/ early 2000’s television show, City Guys. Jamal Grant (Wesley Jonathan) and Chris Anderson (Scott Whyte) are normal teenage boys who go to high school in New York City. Getting in sticky situations that only teenage boys can get into, they hope that their antics does not get back to Ms. Noble (Marcella Lowery), the school principal who is tough, but fair with her students. But hopes often spring eternal.

The show lasted five years. It was one of those innocuous high school shows that was mildly entertaining and semi-memorable.

Do I recommend it? Maybe.
