Jay Baruchel gets himself quite an education but it's nothing major.
3 April 2011 | by (Edinburgh.) – See all my reviews

If you're a fan of comedy then you could do a lot worse than digging up some episodes of Undeclared for your viewing pleasure.

Jay Baruchel is Steven, the young man starting college and soon having so much fun that his dad, Hal (Loudon Wainright III), starts finding excuses to keep dropping by. Steven's dorm-mates include Lloyd (Charlie Hunnam), Ron (Seth Rogen) and Marshall (Timm Sharp). But, more importantly, there is a girl named Lizzie (Carla Gallo) who Steven likes and a girl named Rachel (Monica Keena) who the guys all love to admire. Then there's the occasional visit from Lizzie's obsessive boyfriend, Eric (Jason Segel).

There's nothing all that new in this show, it's all about standard college hi-jinks, but it's all done so well and features so many great performances that it builds from it's shaky start into something quite delightful.

The cast are all great (I've been a big fan of Jay Baruchel for a long time and am always delighted to see him in a main role anyway) and alongside the main players there are amusing little turns from the likes of Amy Poehler, Adam Sandler, Kyle Gass, Jenna Fischer and quite a few others.

In the director's chair we have Greg Mottola, John Hamburg, Jay Chandrasekhar and Judd Apatow so you should know what to expect. It's TV, there's nothing flashy but there IS a lot of fun, a relaxed approach to the material that lets the humour come from the characters just as much as the dialogue and a consistent level of quality that many other shows (shows that are signed up for more than one season, unlike this one) fail to achieve.
