Solid docu-comedy with real info for the interested.
17 December 2003 | by ikimonoSee all my reviews

Collegetown, USA, is an ongoing series that probes college campuses for the real dirt on what students should expect upon arrival. Make no mistake, the majority of it is comedy, and certain bits damn near had me on the floor.

But there is real info here, too. Important factoids such as tuition, dorm costs, academic focuses, and honest looks at the student body, are all a part of the show. There's very little inhibition to what the host, Christopher Underwood, will ask (or even do) to engage the students. A lot of it does involve drinking. But a lot of college involves a lot of drinking for huge swaths of students. So this isn't a bad thing; it's honest.

As the host, Christopher looks the part of a kid in the college scene.. This is hugely important, I don't know how well it would work any other way. He's charming and funny, without being mean or intimidating.

The writing is solid, though some bits are noticeably funnier than others. The production values are low, but they don't need to be any higher for the goal of the show: comedic info-tainment about college life.

I've managed to see a few episodes now, and I hope to see more. Count me as a fan.
