Dangerous Minds: Season 1 Reviews

June 18, 2019
"Dangerous Minds" offers a truly leaden knock-off of the Michele Pfeiffer flick.

It's true that the tough exteriors of the movie and TV series disguise a streak of Hollywood sentimentalism. But "Dangerous Minds" keeps its dukes up far longer than most TV attempts to replicate inner-city schools.

[Annie] Potts is terrific in her role, and so are the raft of young actors portraying her students, even if prime-time broadcast standards render their language absurdly prim.

Yes, it's sentimental and often strains credibility. But "Dangerous Minds" is also keenly humane, a belligerent bulwark against cynicism. Moreover, [Annie] Potts heads a terrific ensemble that makes you care about these kids and this teacher.

[Annie] Potts has some nice moments. Even an actress as able as she ultimately buckles under the tonnage of this character's supremacy, and strong supporting work from Greg Serano, Tamala Jones and Vicellous Reon Shannon... is not enough to shore her up.

If ''Dangerous Minds'' had really been interested in such thorny issues, it might have been onto something.
