This show got a bad rap and wasn't given a chance., 7 March 2006
Author: indy_ace from United States

This show got a bad rap and wasn't given a chance. Both my mother and I thought it was a very good show. Definitely a change of pace. We especially enjoyed the four guys who would wander through the background harmonizing to very appropriate tunes Aspell. They were very good. It dealt with situations that college students commonly deal with in a way that oft times is very humorous. TV execs are obviously looking at the demographics that have the least buying power instead the middle age adults with the most buying power, the Baby Boomers. I am sick an tired of the TV execs telling me what I like or what I'm going to watch. Kicking off a show after only a few weeks without giving a chance to adjust the writing or the character mix is totally irresponsible. I looked forward to seeing Roomies. Too bad people who only enjoy drama, sex and violence rule our airwaves.
