  • A scandalous story hits the campus newspaper and sends the Greek system into turmoil.

    9.5
    I felt so bad for so many characters in this episode.

    Rusty for the Jen K betrayal. Both Calvin and Ashleigh for the misunderstanding. Even Frannie because of the dumping from Zeta Beta



    I love Ashleigh... but how could she land Calvin in it like that... She's fantastic but... could she be any sillier?



    Kappie's mysterious near abduction of Rusty just to confirm his brothers' support for him, it was awesome!

    But I'm not loving the flirtation of him and Rebecca. Frannie deserved all that was coming to her. Seriously, she thought that she could stay another year, stay President and all would be fine? I think not. And I'm not sure why Evan believed all the garbage that Frannie was sprouting. I mean, he's not all that clean himself. What a silly silly boy.moreless
  • Mid-Season Finale. Season 1, Episode 10

    10
    Wow. I'm still speechles. I just got finished watching this episode and it has to be the best and my favorite episode so far. The first nine episodes were character development and now it's starting to get gooooood. An article comes out in the paper exposing the Greek system. It's main focus is the ZBZ house, exploiding everything about everyone including Casey, Evan, Rebecca, and Rusty. Casey tells Frannie that she thinks it was Rebecca. Jen K. tells Rusty she did it. Jen K. comes clean with the ZBZ house, and Rusty breaks up with her. A Greek representative comes to the ZBZ house to straighten things out and names Casey president. Frannie gets mad so she tells Evan that Casey was just using him for selfish reasons and that she still loves Cappie. Ashleigh dumps Travis for Calvin, but when Ashleigh throws herself at Calvin he tells her he's gay and she gets mad because he didn't tell her sooner. Ashleigh decides to be his friend, but accidently lets it slip to the Omega Chi house that he's gay Rusty walks in on Cappie and Rebecca. Casey takes Rusty home since he missed his flight. I loved this episode. I can't wait to watch more.moreless
  • Twists and turns...great mid-season finale.

    9.0
    So a lot happens here...as soon as I saw Jen K's face after news of the article arrived...I knew it was her so I was glad she came clean in the first ten minutes. She was a good character and its a shame that she came to this harsh end. Everyone hating her...Rusty refusing to forgive her. You couldn't blame anyone, she really did lie to both Casey and Rusty.



    As for the whole Frannie thing...she is evil and I don't know why Casey would care if she was hurt. I liked how Ashleigh and Casey secretly met with the rep and revealed all...I think these two are my favourites. How nasty was Frannie going to Evan, that was below the belt...he actually seemed very hurt when she broke it off, poor Casey though...



    Even worse is Calvin is outed to all his house by Ashleigh. It was a really funny scene but I hated how no one wanted to even talk to him. I like them as friends too so I hope they work things out. Plus Cappie sleeps with Rebecca who was quite funny here with her 'suspect' comment at Frannie. Will Rusty tell Casey? Who knows...I really want to watch more but can't...moreless
  • Exciting mid-season finale.

    10
    There are many dramas and break-ups, and hook-ups as the first semester at Cyprus-Rhodes University comes to a close.



    A scandalous article is published in CRU's newspaper: Greek System EXPOSED. It reveals all of the secret things that had happened that semester. And, Casey thinks that it is one of the girls at Zeta Beta Zeta. When it is revealed that Jen K is the author, Rusty has a tough decision to make.

    Frannie is set on ruining Casey's life when she gets the ZBZ presidency.

    Ashleigh discovers that Calvin is gay and accidentally reveals the secret to the guys at Omega Chi. So, Calvin de-pledges.moreless
  • Ashleigh is so stupid! But I love her. There were so many different ways she could have back-tracked...

    9.5
    I was thinking OMG she didnt just say that. Anyway, a brilliant "finale" according to the BBC. A lot of 'wows' and 'uhs' to make it exciting and a wicked plot that drives apart two couples leaving destruction in its wake. Hurricane Jen K has passed...



    When a scandalous story in the college newspaper hits stands trashing the Greek system, everyone is in a frenzy to figure out who the undercover culprit could be. She broke Rusty's heart for an article. The lowest of the low but I hope she comes back and Evan over-reacted and Frannie's a b!tch. One you love to hate Bring on Part 2 of Season 1 - please, I cant wait!moreless
