Oh yes, it's time. Fall is quickly approaching, schools are in session, and my beloved Greek is on the air again!
The show returns to ABC Family for its second season tonight, on a new night and time: 9 p.m., following The Secret Life of the American Teenager. Secret Life has spent the Summer pulling in the highest ratings in ABC Family's history, and I hope its popularity translates to some big numbers for Greek, which (sorry, Molly Ringwald) I think is better-written and better-acted by far.
I've seen the season premiere, and while I wouldn't dream of spoiling anything, I will say that it's a completely delightful episode that answers a few of the questions from the Spring Break-themed finale and delivers a few new cliffhangers of its own. The setting is the annual Greek Week Olympics, which brings out the competitiveness in our Cyprus-Rhodes kids: Casey sees another chance to prove she deserves to be ZBZ president for real, and Rusty and Calvin struggle to stay neutral while their houses are yet again competing against each other. But the plot summary is only the slightest hint of what makes the episode good; you'll have to catch all the one-liners and shocking moments for yourself tonight.
If you're home today and looking to catch up on Greek, you're in luck: ABC Family will be airing nine episodes from the first season back-to-back starting at 11 a.m. EDT and PDT. Meanwhile, to watch a promo, just read more.
