Thursday Talk: Back to School

J: It's August, aka Back to School time! So what fictional school (high school, college, anything!) would you have wanted to attend? Who is your favorite fictional teacher?

Jennifer: I thought this was going to be an interesting question but my answers are totally predictable. For school, obviously Hogwarts (I think I'd be a Ravenclaw)! And for teacher, Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, though he was barely a teacher since no one besides the Scooby Gang ever really went to the library. Honorable mention to Mr. Feeny of Boy Meets World. Totally ridiculous show and totally ridiculous that he was Cory and Shawn's teacher from middle school through college but I rather liked him.

Mira: For school, I'd want to go to Breaker High. I love being on the water and have always had this secret fascination with the idea of living out on sea, so a high school set on a cruise ship? AWESOME! For teacher I pick Michael Vartan in Never Been Kissed. Simply cuz he's so hot and he was just so nice! Okay, so it's probably not right that he grows this attraction to someone pretending to be a high school student but you know what? It wasn't illegal because she wasn't a student and well... he's so hot! :)

Hogwarts! of course!

For school, I would also pick Hogwarts.Quidditch would be awesome. As for my favorite fictional teacher, that would be Ms. Frizzle. Who is cooler than her? Plus, she's got that awesome Magic School Bus.

well, i recently posted on these very pages that if i were a student, i'd want to attend any school run by Tami Taylor from Friday Night Lights, but in all honesty i'd hope that school was someplace other than Dillon, Texas. but Hogwarts would be long as i wasn't a squib, that is.

yeah it would suck to be a squib at hogwarts. :) btw, I still can't think of August as back to school time since in NY school always started the week after Labor Day.... :)
