Airdate: Greek

Greek (or even GRΣΣK) is coming to FOX8 from 8:30pm Thursday September 18.

The teen comedy / drama follows students of Cyprus-Rhodes University who partake in the school’s Greek system. Freshman Rusty Cartwright (Jacob Zachar) arrives at college and decides he no longer wants to be the boring geek from high school. He decides to pledge a fraternity.

The ABC Family drama has received good reviews for its portrayal of teenagers, including praise for depicting a gay fraternity member who struggles with the stereotyping and homophobia. It is created by Patrick Sean Smith who has previously written for Supernatural, Summerland and Everwood.

The series, loosely based on Miami University in Ohio, is now into its second season in the US.

Press Release:
Fraternities. Sororities. No rules. No parents. College life at its finest.

However, he faces one small obstacle, his popular older sister, CASEY, who’s already deeply ensconced in her sorority.

This new series focus on college life and the social minefield that is the Greek system. Audiences will see this unique cast of characters navigate their way through this treacherous terrain as they try to find their place at Cypress Rhodes University

    I saw the first episode last night it was pretty good. But ive seen the ads frequently and im dying to know, whats the song they play in the commercial, its a guy singing it and the lyrics go “la la la la la”, i knwo that doesnt help much but anyone whos seen the ad should know what im talking about

  3. David do you know the reason for the late change?

    “Krypto” is ep 20 of season 4 of Smallville and it’s unusual for PayTV to change things unless it’s live (or fasttracked) and out of their hands.

  4. I saw the same advert as craig just last week. Had it set to record in my foxtel IQ and everything, so it definately was coming this friday. Since looking yesterday however, i’ve noticed that is has been removed yet again from scheduling.

  5. Hi Anthony,

    I’m pretty sure its not been released in Australia, but def try Ebay and stuff in America i’m pretty certain they’ve got a DVD there 🙂 but don’t take my word for it lol.

    Dak.

  6. Craig,
    according to the Foxtel EPG(both electronic(Website and also the TV version) as well as the September Foxtel magazine, AND yourtv.com.au, the following for Friday 12th of September:-

    7:35:- Smallville

    8:30:- Supernatural

    9:30:- Fear Factor

    So, not sure where you got your info from, but FNL is not starting this week, most likely, early October.

  7. Hey Alex,

    THe remaining 12 eps are considered part of the 1st Season, but on some “websites” its classed as a separate series. The series currently airing in the US at the moment is the official 2nd season. Just thought i’d clarify 🙂

  8. Mitch,
    FNL was not listed in the September Foxtel Magazine, all I know it is coming soon to Friday Night’s- I would put my money on the first Friday in October.

  9. Yes! I love this show…. there was only 10 eps in the first season, btw…. i never bothered downloading the second season……. donno why its a great show! I hate paytv, why could it come to free to air! Not all can afford foxtel 🙁

  10. I’m slowly making my way through the 22eps of the 1st season of Greek, and its a fantastic show. Great dialogue, well rounded characters, and storylines that really suck you in. its a shame Fox8 took so long to get it lol. Either way glad we’re able to see it here on Australian TV… some of the actors in this show are brilliant.
