maybe there's no hope for kids who are smart but need to learn how to enjoy and experience life.

What about The Big bang Theory that was on for like 20 years?

It's possible that smart kids (and adults) are tired of being told that their way of experiencing and enjoying life is wrong.

That looked like warmed-over shiat. The original was shiat.

I guess that leaves How I Met Your Father for me to never watch

That's because crushing on the female actors as a teen was okay.  As a middle aged man, it's just creepy Dan Schneider territory.

This, to me, shows the peril of WarnerMedia choosing "HBO Max" as the name of its streaming service: it slaps the HBO logo on mediocre programming.  HBO had been a mark of quality, of shows that you could at least be pretty sure were not going to follow the cliches and formulas of other TV networks.  A HBO show could air nowhere else . Now, the HBO Max streaming service is full of sitcoms that could air on any broadcast or basic cable network like "How I Met Your Father' and this.

Then again, it is the network that aired "Arli$$."

Well they all dated out of their league, that'd be enough for me.

That was not about smart people, but dumb people's biases and prejudices about smart people.

I didn't really watch the show a lot but I don't remember any dumb people, just smart assholes. And Penny.

Khrystyne Haje (Simone) in the original series had my heart go pitter-patter. She still looks great

Ah, thought her name was Jen Noxema.

I was probably junior high age when the original was on and I enjoyed it. However, it's not a show from my youth that I seek out on a streamer to watch today like I did for shows like Cheers or Kids in the Hall. I had no desire to revisit a new HOTC and I suspected before that I wasn't alone on that.

But where's the next foot fetish creepazoid kidcom producer going to come from?

Aaaaaand it turns out I was confusing her with Rebecca Gayheart who apparently is also a murderer.

Without the creeper vibes of Dennis Blunden, the reboot was dead in the water.

I was going to mention "the red head" but was too lazy to look up her name.

The dumb people are the audience, not the characters.

I'd say "well, you couldn't reboot welcome back Carter" but I keep seeing ads for a show about a school so broke the teacher has to show a history book at her kids that ends on Clinton.

And if they're really smart, they're not wasting their time watching TV

When I was in high school in the early 00's, the AP US History test (for college credit) told everyone that the written questions would stop at Vietnam and multiple choice would stop at early Reagan.

The ONLY thing I remember about the original was an episode where they all went to Russia and the fat guy brought a bunch of blue jeans to sell.

The first episode Mister Moore says the class can call him by his first name:  Mister.  We were all hooked from that moment.  But then he wasn't even their teacher anymore.  It was a f*cking Scottish dude.

That's about all I can add, except that I once knew a girl who went to Bronx Science.  She didn't know Head of the Class.  Her nickname was Dirty Girl.  It was not for any reasons you Farkers would hope.

Billy Connolly took over in Season 5 (the last one).
