It’s two points forward, three points back for everyone’s favorite substitute teacher, Mark Cooper (Mark Curry), in the third season of this classic ’90s sitcom. Mark’s new school year gets off to a rocky start when he learns that he’s blown his chance to be the new head coach of the school’s basketball team because he’s been avoiding calls from school principal P.J. Moore (Nell Carter). Swallowing his pride, Mark accepts the position of assistant coach while continuing to try to learn to be the best sub he can be. On the home front, thanks to live-in cousin Geneva (Saundra Quarterman) and her daughter, Nicole (Raven-Symoné), Mark continues to mix life lessons and laughs as he helps raise his young relative. Meanwhile, ex-investment exec Vanessa (Holly Robinson Peete) finally lands a job… answering phones at a swanky doctor’s office! Mark finally makes head coach – only for a giant curve to come his way.

I used to watch this show when I was growing up. Although I don’t remember much about it, I must say that it was a pretty good show. Also, I don’t think I’ve seen every episode. However, if you ask me, it was still a good show. However, I remember the theme song very well. Everyone was ideally cast, the costume design was great. The performances were top-grade, too. I just hope some network brings this series back one day so that I’ll be able to see every episode. Before I wrap this up, I’d like to say that I’ll always remember this show in my memory forever, even though I don’t think I’ve seen every episode. Now, in conclusion, when and if this show is ever brought back on the air, I hope that you catch it one day before it goes off the air for good.

Movie Quality: 9/10

Final Thoughts

I liked this season of Hangin’ with Mr. Cooper it had some great episodes such as Nicole being bullied and Geneva snapping on the boy, Mark buying a vending machine, or PJ moving in with the family and driving them crazy. If you are a fan of this show it is well worth picking up via Warner Archive.
