Good idea - poor realization
5 January 2011 | by pai-raiSee all my reviews

I really thought a lot about how many stars I should give Glory Daze. The title is certainly clever, and when you read the plot of the series, it kind of reminds you of early seasons of the abc family show "Greek", which is outstanding. In comparison: This one blows! Most of the castmembers' performances are not credible, actions are poorly executed without any credible emotions. Of course there are some common stereotypes that are butchered by bad writing. I will overlook the time-slot and the station that broadcasts it, for I'm not watching live. The creators chose for this dramedy sitcom with multi-camera setup a diverse ensemble cast. You can do that, if the actors can actually act, and more importantly, act together. But I'm astonished of the crude amateur performances. Cinematographicly speaking, there's nothing special. It's pretty solid what you see. I would really love to praise this show, but as I wrote in the title, the idea of a couple college freshman rushing a fraternity is soo poorly realized. I am totally for a diverse cast, but in the mid-80s it was very rare or even non-existent that you find a group/clique with a Jewish guy, an Asian, a next-door whiteboy, a jock, a fanatic Christian, geek and whatnot altogether. It's just NOT believable. Sloppy, lukewarm written crap called dialogs fill the voids of music. Not vice versa. And the 80s?? Where are the 80s in this show. The pilot itself felt so forced that I only watched more to write this review to spare the readers the ocular pain that is caused by this show! They played like twenty 80s songs and mostly when it didn't fit! The wardrobe is bad, not 80s bad, just "we make a 80s show but don't really know how to cloth them, so we just give them some contemporary plaid shirts, blue jeans and some Nike sneakers." When you watch an 80s show or movie like Back To The Future, and then take a look at Glory Daze: You're gonna laugh/cry. It's ... bad. Unfortunately. They couldn't even imitate the presence of the 1980s! I'm still not sure if 3*** are too much, much I'm willing to overlook the fact that I personally hated it. Only thing good about it is that they didn't use laugh tracks, but that would have been a first time for a non-studio sitcom. It wouldn't have surprised me though. No recommendation from me, but if you think this review is too harsh and the viewers voted it with 6.something stars, do yourself a favor and watch it. Suit yourself, I warned you. Greetings, A.P.
