So what's the big deal?
I finally saw a bootleg tape of this "long suppressed" documentary & have come to the conclusion that the reason it was never aired by HBO (as was intended) is that there is NOTHING in "Frat House" that hasn't been covered before & covered in greater depth. Back in the 1980s the TV show "60 Minutes" did a 20 minute piece on frats that blew "Frat House" right out of the water. "Frat House" comes across like an overlong edition of NBCs tabloid show "Dateline". There was nothing shocking or revealing about "Frat House". Sure all frat boys are morons, we all know that. Anyone who so desperatley needs to be part of a group that they will submit to extreme humiliation is an overgrown adolescent wuss. Thank God for frats though: In my job I have to review resumes & I immediatley throw out ANY that boast of fraternity affiliation. Who needs a spineless follower as an employee? Anyhow, "Frat House" is a routine, by the numbers TV show & nothing else.
