TV, what else?
If y'all don't know, I'm a big TV junkie. I try to watch different shows whenever i can. before the age of computer I'm a BIG TV 'Ho. :) I wouldn't feel offended if you say that i am such a couch potato. :)
Greek is a TV show follows students of Cyprus-Rhodes University who partake in the school's Greek system. It follows the life of Casey Cartwright and her brother, Rusty Cartwright. Most of the characters belong to either the fictional fraternities Kappa Tau Gamma (ΚΤΓ) and Omega Chi Delta (ΩΧΔ), or the fictional sorority Zeta Beta Zeta (ΖΒΖ). Greek will return for its second season on August 26, 2008 with 10 new episodes. - thank you, wikipedia.com.
I don't know what it is about Greek that fascinates me but what does is the life of a college student in foreign countries like the U.S. It's so different here in the Philippines (base on what i see on TV/movies and stories i read). I mean, I live with my parents even in college and we start college here at 16 or 17 years of age. Not only that, some schools barely have the "Greek System"(except Universities and a few schools). What we have are organizations, clubs or associations. In college, we are still very much under the wings of many authoritative figures. We don't dare break rules (except a few light ones) much less party all night at a "frat house". Don't get me wrong, Filipino students knows how to throw great parties (MBASSY, anyone? Libis and Malate in my days) and boy do fashion and beautiful makeups come into play. Cleavage, if you please?
But really, i'm surprised and awed (admittedly envious) with the life of an American College student. Living in a dorm room a few steps or buildings away from your house, coffee stands, massive library and yes, being in "a rush". A part of me really wants to experience that. Rather too late since i'm 24 already. :) lol.
Another things is Cappie.... Cappie is one if not the major reason that i watch Greek. He's the president of Kappa Tau Gamma Fraternity... He's totally hot in a boyish and rowdy way... totally works fine with me. Sigh! I wish i couldzap myself onto the show and nab him away from his rich and hot asian GF, Rebecca Logan. Y'all know i can. :) lol! I could watch him all day... :)
