At last, the classic 1970s comedy-drama show 'Room 222' is available for you to own on DVD Box Set.
Room 222 was a comedy-drama series created by James L. Brooks and airing on ABC from 1969–1974, focusing on life at a typical American High School in Los Angeles and set primarily in the American history class taught in the titular Room 222 by African-American teacher Pete Dixon (Lloyd Haynes).
Many serious topics facing teen-agers were addressed, some relevant today: bullying, depression, suicide, teen pregnancy, drug and alcohol abuse, violence, cheating, teacher-student relationships and so forth. Despite this, most episodes had at least one lighter-hearted subplot to provide balance.
In addition to being the first major success for Brooks (who would go on to develop many popular TV shows and films), and one of the first successful series set at a high school to appeal directly to teenagers.
Room 222 is best remembered today for two things:
Karen Valentine, who starred as Dixon's student teacher (and later English teacher) Alice Johnson and became a major heartthrob of the era.
Being part of ABC's memorable Friday night lineup that also included The Brady Bunch, The Partridge Family, The Odd Couple and Love, American Style.
