Room 222

I may be wrong but I don’t remember Room 222 being about this.


When Room 222 premiered on ABC in 1969, it quickly made Friday nights worth staying home for. A compelling half-hour series about life at a multiracial Los Angeles high school, it left an indelible mark on popular culture by using the platform to explore socially relevant issues (more than a year before All In The Family) and by starting the still-popular trend of high school television series. Created by the now-legendary James L. Brooks (The Mary Tyler Moore ShowThe Simpsons and Rhoda), the program was praised for dealing realistically with such subjects as prejudice and drugs.

Starring Lloyd Haynes, Denise Nicholas, Karen Valentine, Michael Constantine and guest starring Bernie Kopell, Teri Garr, and Rob Reiner.

  1. Nice. Please don’t tell me that you put the real synopsis there because you and I are the only ones who actually remember “Room 222” being on the air. . .

  2. No, I don’t remember Room 22 being like that either, though I was fascinated by the way ‘school’ worked over there.

  3. OK… on spiffy new blogtheme, one must go backward to go forward. Got it. I wondered why I was on a March post and was suddenly hearing about your holidays.

    But I’m OK now.

    This has nothing to do with your post, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen Room 222. (neener neener)
