Glory Daze: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Glory Daze: Season 1 (2010-2011)



Critic Consensus: A middling retread of Animal House-style college comedies, Glory Daze is notably short on interesting characters and original jokes.


Tv Season Info

Joel (Kelly Blatz) is the boy next door and a pre-med student who intends to focus on his studies.

Critic Reviews for Glory Daze: Season 1

All Critics (20) | Top Critics (12)

The worst new series of the season, falling just short of stupendously bad before settling for remarkably stupid.

Take Legally Blonde, Van Wilder, Animal House, Slackers...we forgetting anyone? Oh right, Revenge of the Nerds" and put in blender. Hit high-speed button. Pour. Serve at room temperature.

Forced setup, predictable joke. Welcome to Glory Daze.

Though grateful not to have been hit over the head with a Rubik's Cube, I am slightly mystified as to why the series' creators bothered.

It's an average piece of work, crammed with every frat-boy cliche you can imagine, and cast with actors who don't initially stand out.

Despite being set in the past, the positive messages it sends about friendship, loyalty, and finding one's own way in life are timeless.
