Series was below par, but blame ABC
27 July 2002 | by norinfoxSee all my reviews

Having played Otter in the series, I can tell you that despite all of our best efforts ABC insisted on programing it in the family hour. Since the humour of Animal House was irreverent and raunchy and the family hour wouldn't allow that, we were in effect, castrated. The producers, writers, and most of the cast were from the original movie and all of our sensibilities were in line with the movie. Unfortunately, ABC's weren't. Nevertheless, we were never out of the top 10, but the Producer, Matty Simmons, who also produced the movie, had enough fights with ABC that it doomed us after 15 episodes. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. -Peter Fox (Otter)
