5.0 out of 5 stars Undeclared
This show is brilliant; all leading characters were lively written and well played by all actors and actresses. Not all characters are likeable, but they all exist in real world, and Judd Apatow created a good chemical reaction to mix them all. They remind me how happy college days were.

2.0 out of 5 stars Unworthy
Undeclared is frequently mentioned in the same breath as Paul Feig's teen classic Freaks and Geeks, due to both shows having much of the same crew and several cast members popping up now and then. Other than this, there's not much to compare the two with; Undeclared isn't even in the same league as Freaks and Geeks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Undeclared, 24 Aug 2013
This review is from: Undeclared: Complete Series [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
This show is brilliant; all leading characters were lively written and well played by all actors and actresses. Not all characters are likeable, but they all exist in real world, and Judd Apatow created a good chemical reaction to mix them all. They remind me how happy college days were.

There are total 17 episodes in the whole series which there are two versions of episode 2, that makes it 18 episodes in total, all round 22 to 25 minutes each. Judd Apatow said that it was a real challenge to write; it's an hour for each episode in Freaks and Geeks and if it's not funny, it can be a drama; but it's not the case for a half hour show. I laugh and laugh, each episode.

The bonus materials are brilliant too; some deleted scenes are insanely funny and make the episodes more complete, but they had to cut it because of the length; the script for the season 2 episode 1 is beautifully written, it's ashame that it never make it.

This review is from: Undeclared: Complete Series [DVD] [Region 1] [US Import] [NTSC] (DVD)
Undeclared is frequently mentioned in the same breath as Paul Feig's teen classic Freaks and Geeks, due to both shows having much of the same crew and several cast members popping up now and then. Other than this, there's not much to compare the two with; Undeclared isn't even in the same league as Freaks and Geeks.

It's main downfall is its extreme inconsistency, and the fact that there is little or no notable character development over the course of the series. These characters change a little over the course of the series, but its only because they weren't that well crafted in the first place. Things happen in one episode that COMPLETELY contradict what happened beforehand. And some of the characters, chiefly the love-interest Lizzie and Amy Poehler's Hilary are absolutely beyond tolerance.

Jay Baruchel, after a few initial episodes of intense annoyance, quickly outdoes himself as perhaps the most unlikeable lead in TV history. Seth Rogen is on autopilot as the sarcastic Ron, though amuses nonetheless if you're still tolerant of him. Charlie Hunnam fails to charm thanks to his impenetrable (and genuine) English accent fooling you into thinking he's a terrible actor. Other mainstays Rachel and Marshall have their moments, but its the guest stars that make the most impact. Jason Segel shines as Lizzie's obsessive ex Eric, and Loudon Wainwright as Steve's perpetually visiting dad (who blames his marriage falling apart on the fact he never "learned to read minds") that everyone else loves is a downright hoot. That's about all the praise I can muster.

It's clear to see why the series was cancelled, and it's not even a worthwhile watch for those curious about the formative years of Judd Apatow and his comedy crew, most of which (including Will Ferrell and Adam Sandler) make appearances on the show.
