I surprised even myself when I tuned into this show. There was something about it that drew me in. I guess I tried to imagine Tommy Lee coming to my college when I was there and imagining how INSANE that would have been. Of course that was late 80s & early 90s when Motley Crue was REALLY POPULAR, but still.
Tommy Lee goes to classes, he struggles, his mind wanders, he gets a roommate, they play video games instead of study, he tries to join the band, struggles and then finds his niche and actually plays during the Nebraska Halftime show.
He gets a tutor and... YOWZA!! The tutor is a nice, cute, highly intelligent, brainiac named Natalie Reidman. She's such a looker, you wait around patiently for the moments in the episode when she comes back. Tommy Lee's no dummy. He needs lots of tutoring. Then it really gets good when this girl in one of his classes makes a move on him. I wondered when this was gonna happen.
Then the tutor and the classmate have a study clash.
Then Tommy Lee starts up a fraternity with his roommate. Pledges an Animal House looking bunch of goofballs and... then the season FINALE!!! WHAT!!
As much as it pains me to say it... I wanted more. I wanted more Natalie Reidman. I wanted more hijinks. I wanted to see REAL COLLEGE LIFE. Instead, we saw a scripted... just scratching the surface midseason time waster.
I had hoped that the DVD release would incorporate more episodes or longer episodes or more story, but apparently it is just the same episodes that aired. Frankly, without Natalie Reidman, the hot blonde tutor, I probably wouldn't have kept watching.
Every T.V. show, movie, song or concert sets out to accomplish something.Read more ›
It was also somewhat dull to see Tommy struggle with his bizarrely chosen curriculum. Honestly, who in their right mind chooses somewhat advanced courses, both in Chemistry and Physics, along with a Biology course in identifying trees and a Literature course that they are completely unprepared for? Wait, I did say "right mind," didn't I? Never mind, then... ;-)
All in all, in my opinion, the most entertaining element of this series is the chance to "study" Tommy doing what he does best: Have fun.
It might not have worked, and it's a good thing they kept it short. Tommy Lee is classier than I expected, unassuming, and genuinely laidback. He's also not dumb; the show might have not have worked, and could've easily gotten boring, if he wasn't likable. I wanted to see him succeed, and he didn't do too badly. A perfect touch at the end of the series was the concert. I'd recommend at least an episode or two; there are only six, and the show takes its subject matter more seriously than I expected, but it never got boring.

If you are from Nebraska this is a unique look at the university, that aired prime time on NBC, mostly scripted.Published on February 12, 2014 by Jeff Babl
I was on campus at UNL when this show was filmed. This show is absolutely horribly "acted" and is full of inaccuracies (as with most reality shows), but it's completely... Read morePublished on January 20, 2013 by Adam C.
Great DVD. Very entertaining if you like Motley Crüe! We have already watched it several times and will many more! Thanks!!Published on September 7, 2012 by Cms755
This is just what you'd expect, only not nearly as exciting as you'd hope. It's so obviously staged from start to finish that it's really not that entertaining.Published on March 6, 2012 by G. Williams
I'm a 1978 graduate of UNL so I had a little extra interest in the show, still I didn't watch it until recently when I picked up an inexpensive copy from an Amazon seller. Read morePublished on February 21, 2012 by F. Davie
