Gachi Baka ! [ガチバカ !] Unlikely teacher helps misfit pupils! [Rating: 5/10] Don't go in to this drama expecting an original plot line; as it is just a re-hash of the overused 'non-text book teacher tries to help bum students' theme. It also suffers from chunks of bad acting and plots that try to tackle dark issues, such as date rape, escort services and teenage pregnancy, without carrying them through and instead wrapping them up with cotton candy endings, making it hard for the actors to appear convincing. Takahashi Katsunori does a good job in the uninspired role he's been given as the teacher, but even a touching (and slightly unexpected) ending to this drama can't save it from being a 2nd rate "Gokusen".
