Storyline

This summer sitcom was about the up and downs two freshmen on the campus of Saginaw University. Nick Chase (Young) is a middle age Drill Instructor who wants something more out of life than what the military can give him. So he leaves the military and goes to college at Saginaw University. His roommate is Matthew Wiggins who is young and bright, but also looked upon as nerdy. Every week, the two would learn from each other (Mainly, Matthew learning from Nick) and get past life's tough challenges. The theme song was performed by Billy Vera and the Beaters.

I felt embarrassed for Haim... really.
11 December 2004 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Well... what is there to say. This was supposed to be an odd couple buddy comedy thing I think. You had Haim as this boy genius and some crusty old guy as a military sergeant who in his 50s I'm guessing decided he wanted more out of life. The result was supposed to be hilarity, it wasn't. First of all, having the two of them as room mates was... well... creepy for reasons I don't even want to get into. I actually have a couple episodes on tape still as I was a big fan of Haim at that time (gimmie a break, I was a teen)... they're packed away somewhere where I'm sure they won't be found soon. Maybe someday they'll be unearthed by a future civilization who will judge our society based on this turkey... oh GOD I'd better destroy that tape. If you get the chance to see it don't spend money, only reason I keep it around is because I taped it for free and as I said, I couldn't find it if I wanted to now.
