  1. Writer/creator Patrick Sean Smith gives Greek a greater sense of light-hearted fun that seems more authentic to the real-world experience of college as "the best years."

    Rusty - as played by newcomer Jacob Zachar - is one of the most likable characters to come along on any TV show in a very long time.
  3. Greek is much more than artful manipulation of marketing strategy. The premiere has several surprises even as it dares you to pigeonhole any of these characters. The talented young ensemble cast works hard to sell the stories and mostly succeeds.
  4. Greek lacks the acidic one-liners that mark great satires like Heathers, but it strains against its conventional boundaries just enough to be enticing.

    Greek is bound-and-determined to retain focus on its core cast, even if some of the machinations to make that possible come across as slightly contrived and belabored.

    Much of the writing in the first episode is competent, but it's hard to judge whether it will rise above that, because Smith has to spend so many words establishing the bases for all the plot developments to come.

    All Greek offers is a predictable teenage soap opera set amongst the pretty people of fraternity row.

    My family loves this show! Having 2 teens in this house, I can say that the show touches on some pertinent issues that college students face My family loves this show! Having 2 teens in this house, I can say that the show touches on some pertinent issues that college students face (not just in the GREEK system)and watching this show opens a great dialogue with your teens. The characters are very endearing (especially Cappie and Rusty) and the problems they face are not exploited with overkill, just enough to get a quick message across to the viewer. Fabulous and funny show! Expand

    I think that greek is awesome. i mean it's real enough to understand and its fake enough to be funny. i think that Greek is a good TV I think that greek is awesome. i mean it's real enough to understand and its fake enough to be funny. i think that Greek is a good TV show and whether or not it should be on abc family isn't important. Its on abc fmaily so it doesn't really matter because just a few complaints will not stop the show from running. And the whole GREEK with two sigmas was just to show that it was about a frat house and all. so if some people don't like it then don't watch it and if some parents don't like it then don't let your kids watch it but if you like it and you don't think it matters then does it really matter? NO! and i think that if abc family put it on their channel and all then it can't be that bad. and yes i have saw the show all three episodes. Expand

    I agree with many of the others on these reviews that this show has a horrible subject matter. It is entertaining but only because it is a I agree with many of the others on these reviews that this show has a horrible subject matter. It is entertaining but only because it is a train wreck of a depiction of greek life and you have to watch to see how they will disgrace the greek system next. I think it is pathetic that a large company like abc has to make a whipping boy out of a already stereotyped and wrongly criticized institution of our society for the sake of entertainment. Why not use your power to build institutions up rather than tear them down? Expand
