I like the show in all but to be honest the teacher is always super super crazy like what the heck is wrong with these people?! They always do super crazy field trips which is why I feel bad for Arnold because he has to deal with her. But of course the rest of the class is just fine with it. But you know I like it it's okay and all but still.
