College freshman Steve Karp, his girlfriend and their fellow dorm-mates embark on one the greatest experiences of their lives...unfortunately for Steve, his lonely and recently divorced father is tagging along for the ride.
Misadventures of college freshman Steven Karp, his fellow freshman and first ever girlfriend Lizzie Exley, Steven's self-confidant sophisticated womanizing British college roommate Lloyd Haythe, Lizzie's endearing college roommate with a wild side Rachel Lindquist, Steven's chubby happy-go-lucky college roommate Ron Garner, Steven's weird college roommate Marshall Nesbitt, Lizzie's loving but obsessive ex boyfriend Eric, and Steven's sympathetic geeky dad, who's just been dumped by Steven's mom which triggered his midlife crisis.
This is a rare television gem that relies on originality and cleverness to bring a diverse group of characters to life without using the usual sitcom gimmicks to drag it down. The series is fast-paced going quickly from one funny little scene to another all the while showing us the quirkiness of these University of North Eastern California students. One thing that makes this fun and smart show stand out even more is the fact that the show was cast first and then a pilot was written based on the personalities of the primary actors making their characters even more funny and human than any others on TV. Make time to see this wonderful show and I'm sure you won't regret it. The writing is excellent and the cast truly shines in what I'm sure will be star-making performances. I only hope people will see this great show for what it is, appreciate it and not let it suffer the same fate of producer Judd Apatow's previous effort the marvelous "Freaks and Geeks".
