Shameless, I love ‘Greek’

My wife and I were talking while we were in the car the other day, and the topic on hand was the latest episode of Greek on Abc Family. We were both in agreement that without either one of us knowing why, we loved this damn show. Now, neither one of us went to a college that had a Greek system still in operation. Even if they had we wouldn’t have joined one, we’re more apt to make fun of it than anything. So how is it that we both love a show that is based entirely around the college Greek house system?

It’s the characters. We rattled off the names of our favorites and why. Rusty is the super smart young super-geek that I wish I could be. Cappie is the slacker in all of us. Casey the aspiring lawyer who can’t seem to let go of ZBZ after graduating. Dale the, well, I think Dale is a total douchebag of a character now. Dude betrayed his best friends so he could become a Omega Chi? That’s low man. That’s low.

What the hell am I talking about? I DON’T KNOW. It’s just the weird effect this show has on us. Nobody on the show is famous, and in the 3 or 4 plus seasons it’s been on, only douchebag Dale is someone I’ve seen outside of the show. On Hot Tub Time Machine.movie. What I’m getting at in the end, is that after much discussion, my wife and I both decided that I needed to write about this show to help it gain some viewers. It’s funny, fun, and really just a easy guilty pleasure. You should give it a try, and before you know it, you’ll be rooting for the Kappa Taus to get heir revenge on the Omega Chi’s, and the girls of the ZBZ to get back onto their place as the #1 sorority on campus.

What I have become? I don’t know. But I’m having a blast watching this show and talking afterwards with my wife about it, and you should too. Even if you don’t have a spouse to talk to after the episodes, email me, I’ll be your surrogate spouse.
