Product Description

All ten episodes from the second season of the popular Channel 4 drama series set in the fictional Summerdown Comprehensive, where the teachers are just as juvenile (if not more so) than the teenagers they are supposed to be educating. In Episode 1, Simon (Andrew Lincoln) breezes into school after getting back late from a holiday in Tenerife with Brian (Adrian Bower) and Kurt (Navin Chowdhry). In Episode 2, Simon is so jealous of popular new languages tutor JP (Shaun Evans) that he refuses to go out for a drink with the usual crowd. Episode 3 finds Simon getting increasingly sexually frustrated after nine weeks without sex. In Episode 4, JP comes out to his new flatmates, and Kurt and Simon try to convince Brian that he is gay, too. Episode 5 finds Susan (Raquel Cassidy) being driven crazy by Alec (Damien Goodwin), who walks around the flat with nothing on in between his very noisy sex sessions with her flatmate, Jenny (Nina Sosanya). In Episode 6, head of department Bob (Lloyd McGuire) is doing all he can to catch Penny's (Tamzin Malleson) eye. Episode 7 sees Susan getting broody after holding the baby of a schoolgirl mum - but when she meets the single mother of another problem pupil, she soon changes her mind. In Episode 8, Simon is feeling bored and dissatisfied with his life, and decides to take a drastic step to change things. In Episode 9, Simon has taken off for South America, leaving his colleagues to cover his classes. Finally, in Episode 10, Christmas is just around the corner, and Simon's replacement, Matt (James Lance) arrives to step into his shoes.

From the Back Cover

"Don’t want to go to school tomorrow. I hate the first day back. I get this kind of knot here." Not the words of a hormonal adolescent, but those of teacher Simon, whining to his mates in the pub. Join Simon, Jenny, Kurt, Brian and Susan for a new term, new students, new drinking games and new teachers …

The lives and lifestyles of a group of young comprehensive school teachers in Bristol forms the backdrop for the second series of this original drama series. Starring Andrew Lincoln, Teachers is set in the fictional Summerdown Comprehensive, where a mix of seasoned and young teachers and some raucous pupils makes for some humorous incidents. Set as much out of the classroom as in it, this is a contemporary light-hearted series where the staff find their lives just as problematic after school.

After watching Teachers Series One, I didn't think there could be any improvement and I was cautious of watching series two just in case it wasn't as good. My fears were unfounded. Series Two is a million miles better than the thoroughly outstanding Series One.
Series One featured Simon as the princpal character and the plot lines seemed to revolve around him. Don't get me wrong, Simon's great, but there is only so much you can stand of his whining, laziness and sheer incompetance. Series Two reconises this and Simon, whilst still being a main character, takes a step backwards to let the other character's stories come across. Indeed, Simon's utter incompetance and hatred of teaching is eclipsed by English NQT Penny who has had a boob job on hire purchase and knows nothing about literature or teaching.
Plot wise there are some cracking story lines ranging from: Kurt trying to dump Carol; Brian dealing with teaching Liz's lippy daughter; Susan falling out with Jenny over persistant naturist Alex, her new boyfriend; Simon finally doing the romantic thing that viewers have been waiting for and announcing his love for Susan, who turns him down flatly; Brian questioning his sexuality; normally sensible Susan acting first like a teenager in love and then like a child having a tantrum; Simon and Jenny united against Penny; Bob dressed like a pillock; Simon's departure; Matt's arrival; Susan sleeping with Brian; and Kurt getting back with Carol. Phew! I'm in the wrong profession methinks!
This is definitely a fantasic buy. Roll on Third Series DVD and the fourth series on TV!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilariously well observed comedy 10 Sep 2003
Format:DVD
You don't have to be a teacher to love Teachers.
I have watched this program through all three series and it has just got better and better.
It is filmed in the style of a fly-on-the wall documentary, with interesting camera angles and a rough and ready feel. More often than not, the funniest action is in the background, so you'd better pay attention! Don't worry if you miss something, you can happily watch these episodes over and over without getting bored.
The teachers act like kids, the kids act like disapproving adults and the overall effect is to get me laughing like I've never laughed before.
To top it off, the soundtrack is a well chosen collection of mostly brit-pop music that will keep your feet tapping throughout.
If you liked the first series, which is already out on DVD, this one is a must. This series will happily stand alone though, so you won't be lost if you start with series 2.
You'll not be disappointed with this, I promise.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of the whole series 29 Sep 2007
Format:DVD
This is my favourite Series of Teachers. With Simon (the main character) now taking a backseat, this series allows the other characters to develop. Most notibly Brian & Kirk, who are like a Morecombe & Wise double-act, getting the most laughs from this series.

5.0 out of 5 stars education has never been so interesting... 30 Nov 2003
By A Customer
Format:DVD
I wish my teachers had been as amusing as this. I wish my school had been as amusing as this, but sadly, it wasn't. Still, this series has brought me endless entertainment, has brought some brilliant eye candy into my living room (the lovely Matt for example, who although is late to arrive in this series is a very welcome face nonetheless!!). The only series on Channel 4 to be commissioned for a third season - this speaks for itself. The writing is witty and the surreal additions to Summerdown School's days are entertaining to say the least (who let that donkey in, anyway?!).
This is a must for any fan of the series when it was on TV, for any teacher who feels their job is getting them down (this will make you feel so much better about your pupils and your colleagues...) and for anyone who loves good British, well written, well thought out comedy - which is lacking in today's schedules which play host to an endless glut of American sit-coms, whose writing is not as good as this.
Buy it, sit back and enjoy - this is an investment and by no means simply a purchase.

2.0 out of 5 stars Lads humor 13 Mar 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I don't know if it's my age but I'm begining to find this programe very crude. It's the same "would you rather" joke time after time and they seem to be very cruel to each other.
