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.

It had a Limited premise but was still pretty good.
12 March 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My but How I recall this Short Lived Series And even on the last night it played on May 15,1987 of which was my 24th Birthday I even Knew that it still might not survive to come back after that short lived as it was it gave those 2 movie stars The late Corey Haim as Matthew and Burt Young(of whom is most famous for his role as Paulie in The Rocky Movies) as Nick a chance to each get recognition outside of Movie Roles and Movie Stardom with a shot at TV roles and TV Stardom and how like 2 peas in a pod they'd get to find how they really went together?So that they even went on A Weekend Trip together to Nick's Mother's(she was played by Estelle Getty.)Yes Matthew was an outcast who didn't fit in because The College Classmates were older than him and Nick didn't fit in for a similar reason because he was too old for them.You'll also see how among other things Matthew get's taken advantage of but still thanked like in that very scene in which Matthew was asked for an answer by that guy who's cheat notes were washed off and then when he was given it but after being told then he said "Thanks and I still hate you!"Those singing choir boys in each episode also added a nice touch of color as did certain songs of which were played before the station brakes like In 1814 we took a little trip.
