Trivia

The show's characters where based on the actual actors playing them and the series pilot wasn't written until all the actors were cast. The pilot episode was largely improvised with the actors making up most of their own dialogue. See more »

Goofs

The exterior shot of the dorm the characters reside in is only 3 stories high, yet the characters live on the 4th floor and Hillary lives on the 10th floor. See more »

Quotes

[Lizzie's boyfriend wants to fight Steven]
Steven Karp: If I could just explain stuff to him, he really wouldn't be so mad! I know he wouldn't!
Lloyd Haythe: It's true. If he knew *why* you had sex with Lizzie, he'd be fine with it. In fact, he'd *probably* let you do it again.

Untapped Potential
21 August 2008 | by (Boston) – See all my reviews

As someone with a deep affection for "Freaks and Geeks," I was looking forward to seeing this show on DVD. Although perhaps unfair to compare the two, I do feel that comparing and contrasting (in true college essay question style) highlights the shortcomings of "Undeclared."

CHARACTER SPECIFICITY. The freaks and geeks of "Freaks and Geeks" had sharply defined personalities. By contrast, these people are very general types. The main character is a standard issue nerd. Seth Rogen seems to wander into scenes without a character to play.

CHARACTER SYMPATHY. The kids on F&G formed little family units, and bonded and took care of each other. The "Undeclared" kids are basically all strangers to each other, and are as likely to compete or argue as to connect.

EMOTIONAL PULL. F&G took place during high school, and the emotional vulnerability of the characters and their growing pains gave the show a warm emotional poignancy. Think of the episode where one boy discovered that his father was cheating on his mother, and how this, in turn, caused Sam to worry about his own family's stability. The college kids in "Undeclared" are a selfish, immature bunch interested in sex and beer, and they're far more difficult to connect with as a viewer.

COMPLEX STORIES. Because it was a half hour longer, F&G had far richer stories and ideas. But even accounting for this, "Undeclared" still comes off pretty anemic in the story department. A typical "Undeclared" episode takes a small idea and does very little with it.

HUMOR. F&G was hilarious. The episode where Sam wore the disco suit to school is a classic. Nothing in "Undeclared" can rival that level of humor.
