Kids say (2):

Laugh-out-loud funny and resplendent with talented cast members and guest stars, this series does for the college years what Freaks and Geeks did for high school. Undeclared taps into familiar late-adolescent insecurities for poignant humor. Steven's journey will ring true with many adult viewers who remember well the struggles to define one's self amid the chaos and temptation of the college years. But it's not all hoots and hollers; mixed in with the laughs are some very heartfelt moments of friendship, self-discovery, and even family relationships that mark the show's true-to-life content.

Apatow has a sixth sense for picking stars, and he does well by drawing on the considerable talents of Freaks and Geeks alums like Seth Rogen, Jason Segel, Busy Philips, and Martin Starr for recurring and guest roles in Undeclared. With others like Adam Sandler, Will Ferrell, Amy Poehler, and Fred Willard dropping by to share the screen, it's no wonder this underappreciated series has garnered such acclaim since it first aired.
