Personally, I think the world WOULD be a better place if everyone had enough to eat. I will never be hip.
WELL WE COULDN'T GET MATTHEW BRODRICK TO STAR IN THE TV VERSION. HOW CAN WE DRAW AS MUCH ATTENTION TO THIS AS HUMANLY POSSIBLE.
When it comes to masterminds of high school schemes and hijinks, I'll take Parker Lewis Can't Lose any day.
The title sequence looks just like Clarissa Explains it All. Somebody was ripping somebody off!

I forgot how horrible this show was.
Hmm, Ferris never struck me a s Sisters of Mercy fan...
Watching this made me go and watch some episodes of Parker Lewis on yt.
The ultimate combination of awesome. It's Ferris Bueller! It's a PREQUEL! Instead of stuffy old Matthew Broderick we got a hip 90's guy (but he sounds kinda like him anyway!) Here's his girlfriend - she's not as hot as Mia Sara but she's BLONDE! And we had to drop the "Day Off" because if we kept that in the title every episode would have to be about him cutting school or it wouldn't make sense!
I'm not sure if this is a 'prequel' or just a reinterpretation of "Ferris Bueller" that breaks some kind of wall by having the movie exist in its universe. And I don't really know what to say about that song and those lyrics. It's somehow worse than the "Sonic Underground" theme.
FE-FE-FE-FE-FE-FE-FERRIS. BUELLER! BUELLER. FERRIS! BUELLER-BUELLER.
BU-BU-BU-BU-BU-BU (ferris) BUELLER!
The guy who did this theme also did the theme to Baseball Stars II.

Was that "nose job" crack directed at Jennifer Gray? I wonder if that was the bit that pushed her into getting one for real.

This guy must be exceptionally short, because even TV can't make him look normal sized.
"Mr. Broderick, while you do have an impressive resume here, I'm afraid you're just too... whitebread. Yes. Two-dimensional. Perhaps... Tootsie? In any case, we found someone HIP and EXTREME TO THE MAX who will be playing your part. It's 1990, Mr. Broderick. Television is what is real now."
What a bold move, thinking anyone could sit through that entire credit sequence and NOT switch to ANYTHING ELSE.
This was on TV Land? Really?

NBC put this turd on the air to compete with "Parker Lewis Can't Lose" on FOX.
As a preemptive strike, the writers of "Parker Lewis" had a scene were the titular character. tell the audience he would have to do a "Ferris Beuller" to get out of trouble with his parents. Actor Corin Nemec then proceeded to do a mind-blowingly accurate impersonation of Matthew Broderick as Ferris Beuller.
The message was clear: "Our Ferris Beuller knock-off is way better than yours. Suck on it, bitches."
Too bad "Parker Lewis" took a steep nosedive in quality in the later seasons. They should have bowed out while they were on top.
I recall watching the first episode of "Ferris Beuller" and seem to remember him making a comment about Madonna having a face like a collie.
Parker Lewis suffered in the last seasons because of the network suits got their hand all over it. I guess they felt the show was not "funny" enough or something like that.
He's not already with Sloan?
What is this I don't even

I remember this being pretty horrible. It's even worse than I remember.
