'Greek' ends on a hopeful note

So, I have to confess that I have been secretly watching "Greek" all this time and last night got a little emotional as the show aired its series finale.

For four years Cappie, Casey, Rusty and the rest of the Cyprus-Rhodes crew have been providing a fun, heart-wrenching and hilarious portrait of college life.

Last night focused on the demolition of the Kappa Tau fraternity house. The gang rallied together for one last caper, hoping to sway a CRU alum into not tearing down the KT house.

Unfortunately things didn't work and it was devastating to see such a central character of the show bulldozed.

However, things did go a little better for Casey and Cappie as he finally graduated (accidentally) and they rode off into the sunset on a unplanned, hopeful road trip.

Rusty grew from the sheltered nerd into the confident new KT president who is now dating Ashleigh. Even Dale finally got a girlfriend and had a happy ending.
"Greek" was never a giant hit, but it always had a loyal following and helped ABC Family find the audience that has made shows like "Pretty Little Liars" and "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" successful.

Since the show has followed these characters through all the ups and downs of college, it was nice to see everyone have such a hopeful ending, because that's how everyone wants to feel when college is over.
