After having just seen the last episode for the first season (perhaps the last ever) I realize what a great show Undergrads truly is. The characters are so rich and entertaining that you find yourself laughing at their antics but also seeing a little bit of you and your friends in each of them. This makes for a rewarding experience in television viewing.
The story focuses on four friends (members of The Clique) Nitz, Cal, Rocko, and Gimpy who all attend different colleges in the same town, they've been friends since birth and nothing is going to change that now. Each of the characters fits a stereotype but also breaks it. Nitz is the nice quite nerdy guy that always feels a constant embarrassment towards the friends he has but also a great bit of love towards. Rocko is the tough guy that basically excels at being an ass, especially to Cal who truly steals the show as the quiet annoying yet good looking babe magnet...its Cal that comes in with the great lines that cause you to burst into laughter "Sorry guy time for my late afternoon sex". Another true gem in the show is Gimpy the shut in from Techerson Tech college, he barely ever leaves his room and lives his life according to Star Wars.
Nitz is constantly the folly of his friend's exploits but also of his own lust for Kimmy Burton, the girl that he's had a crush on for four years. The season truly comes full circle at the end.
The secondary characters also bring out the best in Undergrads, from wise ass Jesse to movie talking Brodie and the $@%@ing trash talker Kruger, the show's writers truly display their abilities of interpreting real life into an animated sitcom. I see everyone of these characters in every day life and truly hope to see the show continue next year..so please MTV execs listen to my call...as well as the call of many fans..keep Undergrads on the air.
