Seven Periods With Mr Gormsby
Steve's father was Mr. Rosso from Freaks and Geeks.
Rosso had a one-night stand while backpacking through New Zealand in The Seventies; he may or may not have known about it (maybe even having to return to the States early because of it). The laws of fictional genetics being as wonky as they are, one ponytailed Hippie Teacher begat another, but with the Jerk Ass - ness cranked Up to Eleven. Throw in the symmetry of Russo having spent his career in a "good" school in the leafy suburbs of a memetic Place Worse Than Death and Steve in a "sink" school surrounded by Ghibli Hills for extra lulz...

There are NO Network Standards and Practices people in New Zealand.
Any attempting to enter the country are turned back at the airport, if not shot on sight. Never mind Getting Crap Past the Radar, I can't see how this show got made unless there was NO radar to get past at all!
  • Bribery.
  • There are, it's just that nobody cares.
