I recently was watching the TV land cable network and saw a TV program featuring some familiar characters. I quickly contacted my boyfriend in the other room and he immediately recognized them as the characters from the classic film Animal House.
The show was called Delta House, and while the Animal House movie was quite entertaining this very predictable and unfunny sitcom is not. The character played by John Belushi is not present and the characters in the show are all watered down compared to their original version. I'm actually befuddled considering I (nor anyone else I asked about it) had never heard of the show, which is quite unusual considering the popularity of the movie. After watching just two episodes it's very easy for me to see why this show only lasted one season. It's a terrible bastardization of a great film.
