Storyline

There are four childhood friends that, while they might be seperated by different colleges, have a strong friendship they vow to maintain. However, Nitz, the most regular of the guys, learns that there are new experiences and friends to have and meet that will profoundly refashion his friendship with Gimpy, the reclusive computer geek, Rocko the dumb jock and Cal the effeminate ladies man. All the while though, their relationship will remain even as they go through the college years and all the changes that era in their lives entails. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@home.com>

Man, do I love this show.
2 December 2001 | by (Estevan, Saskatchewan, Canada.) – See all my reviews

I just started watching undergrads a few months ago and have seen almost all of the first seasons 13 episodes, which I hope will not be the only ones. Some people may say that the characters on the show are stereotypical, but they have much more depth than mere stereotypes. I see parts of myself and my friends in all four of the main characters (Nitz is so much like me it's frightening). The four main characters (Nitz, Rocko, Cal and Gimpy) are so good it's hard to pick a favourite. It also has a fabulous supporting cast too. One thing I admire about the show is that it depicts friends who are seemingly so different from each other but still remain friends, and that it shows that clicks and groups sometimes overlap into each other. I sincerely hope that MTV decides to keep the show going.
