Greek - Most Underrated TV Show

I'm watching the 12th episode of Greek and it is wonderful. It feels like the show has been on so long and that you really know the characters. The characters are 3D, and feel like people you would be friends and enemies with. It is easily one of my favorite shows on TV.

However no one seems to know about it, or talk about it. Before it began the commericals with terrible and made the show look like a joke, but it's not, the commericals, like always were misleading. The only problem the show has is the fact it's on ABC Family and everyone thinks the network is a joke or something. ABC Family has more shows I watch than CBS and NBC combined. More and more people are seeing that cable networks (TNT, FX, TNN, USA, Showtime, hell even Lifetime) are where the good shows are, ABC Family should be added to the list too.

They have aired 12 episodes (made 18 for season 1) all wonderful. The first 10 episodes are on DVD for $30, yeah that's a ripoff, Netflix the show. It's well worth it and you will be able to see a great show from the beginning.

Re: Greek - Most Underrated TV Show

I definitely know people who have heard of it. My sister and her roommate (I live with both of them) are in a sorority and they are obsessed with the show. They have "Greek night" every Monday. About 20 girls come over here...it actually really annoys me because our apartment isn't big enough for that and they are really loud when watching it. I personally don't like the show that much, but part of that is due to my sister and her friends' annoying behavior.

Yes stop blaming the show because your sister and her friends are assholes.

Re: Greek - Most Underrated TV Show

I love the show. Great humor to it. Cappie is a great character.

And if I had twenty soroirty girls over the last thing I'd do is be annoyed. Of course I'm a guy and I assume you are a girl who's not in the sorority.. LOL

Give the show a chace. Get a DVR and then watch it later on your own.

Well, yeah I'm a girl but I'm also someone who doesn't like to have people over. I HATE parties or get togethers where more than 3 people are involved. I don't mind some of the sorority girls but most of them are so into "drama" and being loud and obnoxious just to get attention that it drives me insane. It's like being back in high school except twice as bad because there's really no parents around ever. Can you tell I can't wait to move out of here?

I have given the show a chance aside from them but I just don't like it. It reminds me of the annoying drama of sororities and fraternities and how glad I am to not be involved in one.
