College freshman Steve Karp, his girlfriend and their fellow dormmates 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.
Judd Apatow wanted Jason Segel to play the lead role of Steven, but FOX rejected the idea, so Segel ended up in the supporting role of Eric instead. See more »
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 »
Oh, you want to talk about your relationship? Huh?
Yeah, I would like to.
You know what a relationship is? Real Exciting Love Affair that Turns Into Ongoing Nightmare. Sobriety Hangs in Peril. Something like that, I got it tattooed on my back.

A show that would have done what Friends did to its actors
A shame this show was canceled from FOX. But I guess they needed to make more room for crappy Reality shows and more room for new Sitcoms and cartoon shows that they will yet again cancel so it becomes a full circle (Futurama, and the godly Family Guy).
The show itself was smart, hilarious, and all characters were different, unique and everyone could relate to one of them. From the party/girlgrabbing Brit to the meek lead character played by fellow Canadian Jay, the Virgin, the Skank and we can't leave out the Moron and the Perv/Geek. This show took all the college stereotypes and played it out well. The storylines on each episode were original, quirky, and just plain funny. FOX if it wasn't for the Simpsons and American Idol, you'd be in the gutter.
