Campus Ladies Oh how this quirky, odd show has grown on me. It is now one of only a few comedies on TV that I look forward to new episodes. The fact that there are new episodes is a surprise, due to it's explicit content and downright weird humor–but as we know Oxygen will play just about anything (see Bad Girl's Club). Campus's second season, which is just starting, was as unexpected as the fact that Strangers with Candy was allowed three seasons and the two shows share a lot in common.

While not as grotesque and surreal as Candy, this sometimes dirty and strange show is akin to it, with a little bit of the faux reality of Curb Your Enthusiasm. In fact, Enthusiasm's Cheryl Hines is one of the producers. The main characters of the show are Barrie and Joan, two middle age suburban women who enroll in college after their domestic lives don't work out. Christen Sussin and Carrie Aizley are hilarious and understated as the sheltered housewives turned co-eds and the rest of the cast, down to guest stars and extras, are brilliant. Give it a chance, it will grow on you too.
