Between the mild profanities, underage drinking, and promiscuous sex, Greek is definitely not your older sibling's Saved by the Bell: The College Years (You've come a long way, ABC Family!). This instantly addictive series may not be, as its creators intended, "the definitive fun college show," but it gets high marks for its appealing cast, smart writing, and reasonably clear-eyed portrayal of fraternity and sorority life. Jacob Zachar stars as Rusty Cartwright, an incoming freshman at Cyprus Rhodes University. He is a geeky science major and socially awkward (his first taste of tequila earns him the nickname "Spitter"). But he is eager to join a fraternity and "have a real college experience." The soapsuds froth early. His sister, Casey (Spencer Grammer, Kelsey's daughter) is campus royalty, a junior with a wealthy and well-connected boyfriend, Evan (Jake McDorman). She is also "heir to the throne" of her "best of the best" sorority house. So embarrassed is she by Rusty, she has never told anyone she had a brother. "You have your world, and I have mine," she dismisses him early on. But her world is rocked after Rusty accidentally catches Evan about to cheat on Casey with Rebecca Logan (Dilshad Vadsaria), a senator's daughter and highly prized pledge who Casey has been charged to bring in to the sorority at all costs.

Greek is not just kids behaving badly. What moves this series to the head of the class is that its characters struggle with doing the right thing, and as Casey tells Rusty, "sometimes doing the right thing isn't doing the right thing," adding, "It's shades of grey from here on out." Greek creates compelling moral dilemmas and should spark worthwhile family discussions. Should Rusty tell his sister about Evan and ruin his chance to join Evan's elite fraternity? Should Casey break up with Evan and risk her social standing? Greek is all about acceptance and how friends can become like an extended family. Rusty finds his at a rowdy Animal House-like frat headed by Cappie (Scott Foster), Casey's less reputable former boyfriend. Though Rusty may be lame, he proclaims, "he'd be fun to corrupt and bring to the dark side." How Rusty wrestles with his ideals and reconnects with Casey is at the heart of this auspicious season. Greek does traffic in stereotypes, but most of the characters emerge as fully dimensional, including Evan, less of a jerk and more soulful than one would expect, and Dale (Clark Duke), Rusty's "fundamentalist hick" roommate, who becomes less of an easy punch line as the season progresses. For a show that at one point gives a shout-out to Gilmore Girls, Greek's own pop-culture references (from The Matrix and Monty Python to Grey's Anatomy) are spot-on. Beyond that, the character-based writing is well observed. After a first date, a euphoric Rusty calls it the best night of life, adding, "Even better than the time they announced Pluto wasn't a planet. I hated Pluto." With one year under its belt, you'll want to pledge yourself to Greek. --Donald Liebenson

A little Animal House, some Van Wilder, a dash of American Pie, and a pinch of Gilmore Girls-esque drama, Greek is the kind of premise that could have easily gone cheesy and overdone. Fortunately, it doesn't; whether it's depictions of life in the Greek system are accurate or exaggerated, it manages to find a happy medium between alcohol-drenched party scenes and actual character-driven drama.
It's the characters, while mildly stereotypical, that really make the show; anyone who was awkward as a college freshman, whether they were in the Greek system or not, will identify with Rusty, the dorky physics major who longs to be in a fraternity; his older sister Casey may at first glance play the perfect blonde sorority princess, but she has plenty of flaws and problems to work through. Her current high-society boyfriend Evan, while definitely arrogant and a little flaky, also seems to have a sensitive side; but it's Casey's ex, ringleader of the Animal House-esque Kappa Taus, aptly-nicknamed Cappie, who steals the show. A funny, fast-talking, goofball with a heart of gold (which gets broken entirely too often), he's the kind of character you can't help but love (unless your Evan Chambers, anyway). The supporting characters, too, are surprisingly well-developed (Dale, Rusty's Bible-thumping, physics nerd roommate is hysterical, and Casey's archenemy Rebecca is the girl everyone loves to hate), and the show even tackles such issues as gays in the Greek system. However, the main theme of the show seems to be the importance of brotherhood, family and friendship. All in all, a great show, definitely worth a look.

Greek is by far the best show on television right now. The ABC Family original comedy is probably more suited for people in their teens and 20's, but my mom also loves the show. It's smart, funny and sometimes painfully true. As somebody who experienced Greek life, this show really brings back a lot of memories. The DVD is a bit skimpy on extras, but the episodes themselves are enough to keep me buying Greek on DVD for future seasons.

This is a cheeky comedy with heart. Greek is filled with fraternity antics, parties and pranks, but at the same time you find yourself truly caring about the characters and their relationships. I highly recommend the show to anyone looking for a fun mix of comedy and drama.

It's about time! a show about teenagers which isn't only about a boy and a girl being together and talking about how they feel for each other over and over (we have some but it's not only about them).So we follow the freshmen year of several characters when they arrive to college.Of course we have all the cliches of the genre (betrayal,love,friends,ect...)but in a light and not too soapy way.It's like American Pie became a TV show without the horny geeks (we still have some though,but they're not the main characters).Plus,there's a big change compared to the shows of my youth,the gay guy (who isn't a crazy queen or a depressed kid who feel cursed) is as important and developped as the rest of the characters of the show,and it's a nice and modern way to put it.And of course,the soundtrack is huge! Hope it will be released in France,where I'm from.

I've only recently gotten into the show "Greek", but I'm so glad I found it. When I first saw promos for the show I dismissed it, because, um...it's on ABC Family. I thought it would be a lame - heavy on the PG side of things - comedy series that wouldn't even be close to the college life I've experienced. Needless to say I was pleasantly surprised when I finally caught an episode a few weeks ago, and then promptly ordered the DVD set.

"Greek" is such a witty, fun show. It doesn't sidestep the racier elements of college, but it also doesn't make it it's primary focus either. The characters are awesome (I heart Dale. Outside of infomercials, you don't see many Christian rock loving characters on TV) and the relationships are complex, realistic, and inspire many a chant of 'OMG. Just get back together already!'. Cappie and Casey, I'm looking at you. And I look menacing.

As for the DVD set, there isn't a whole lot on there. But I enjoyed finding out what roles certain actors tried out for in the beginning (Scott Michael Foster/'Cappie' was originally going to be Calvin? What?), only later to get another role instead. Also, some of the guys in the cast do commentary for one episode and much hilarity ensues.

I downloaded the first episode on xbox live and after about five minutes of watching I was hooked, great cast and script. I bought the dvd and I'm gonna enjoy watching the rest of season one. The best way to descibe this show is that its like a college soap opera and is very fun for all ages... get it... watch it... you won't be disapointed & you will love it... THIS SHOW IS THE BOMB!!!

Greek is unique in that it begins by setting up a series of stereotypical characters--the nerdy freshman, the southern fundamentalist, the sorority girl, the jerk boyfriend, the closeted gay guy--and then, over the course of the season's run, destroys each and every stereotype.

By gradually adding depth to the characters and then letting them run loose in the college setting, the show's creators have managed to create believable and interesting situations that balance drama and comedy. The snappy writing is supported by strong ensemble acting. Ultimately, the show succeeds at what it sets out to do: to create a group of interesting characters that interact with one another in interesting ways.

[Buyer beware: this contains only the first ten episodes of Season One, which is to be expected for the low price.]

Thank you! I'm also wondering when the next bit comes! I tried to go to the website to view the episodes and the earlier ones that follow this DVD collection aren't available. I want to know what happens next!!
