This week’s theme is an exciting one because I get to talk about a few of my favourite shows. College, though less exploited than high school, is a great foundation for a show. It has a lot of possibilities, and there’s always ways to introduce new story lines and characters. Here are three shows taking place in college.
This was the first one I wanted to mention, because Greek has always been an underdog in my eyes. It wasn’t talked about much, and it didn’t really have the opportunity to be an Internet phenomena either. But the show had heart, and a great message. It also had Scott Michael Foster (mostly with bad hair though), which is always a bonus!
A controversial show, especially due to a hairstyle change (oh, the drama!), but a good one at that. It’s about a girl, who follows her high school crush to college. So a little weird, but not too much. I liked this show, and I’ve thought about rewatching it. Even though this show did come out a bit too early for me. Especially since it was hard to appreciate it fully for showcasing transitioning from high school to college.
Though I didn’t watch this show from start to finish, I watched enough to understand it’s appeal. And I think it’s important to showcase the fact that college is for everyone! You can go back to college even after you’ve been out of high school for years. It’s never too late to learn something new. But that’s only a small part of Community’s appeal, there’s a lot of funny things happening. Oh, and Donald Glover is there!
