Blue Mountain State is a football comedy on the Spike channel, which means it's a carnival of booze, testosterone, girls, girls, girls--and a surprising amount of winking homoeroticism. Second-string quarterback Alex (Darin Brooks) couldn't care less about the games--he's there for the good times. Craig (Sam Jones III) wants success, and so does his controlling girlfriend Denise (Gabrielle Dennis). Sammy (Chris Romano, a.k.a. Romanski, who cocreated the series), the team mascot, just wants to get laid. And around these four characters is built a web of high jinks involving sex, drugs, strip clubs, venereal disease, masturbation, bodily fluids, and other subjects guys are supposed to find hilarious. While the acting is enthusiastic and more or less competent, the situations and dialogue are inane at best (like a war between football and lacrosse players that can only be resolved by a promiscuous virgin, or when the team tries to break a losing streak by taking lots and lots of drugs) and insulting at worst (such as when the entire team gets syphilis from sharing the same sex toy, or when they try to blackmail a professor into giving them passing grades by having sex with his elderly mother). Its rare attempts at sincerity (such as when Alex meets a girl he might actually have feelings for) end up even worse. Blue Mountain State aspires to be Porky's on the gridiron; the show doesn't succeed--but if you're looking for half-hour doses of drunken guys inexplicably having sex with lots of hot interchangeable girls, this is your show. --Bret Fetzer

Top Customer Reviews
Pushes the limits of decency on TV.
* Alex Moran (Darin Brooks): A freshman second-string quarterback for the Blue Mountain State team and the first 10,000 yard passer in Wyoming high school history. Unlike the rest of the characters, Alex does not see college football as a stepping stone for the NFL and is content to spend his days as a back-up player and a life as an "Average Joe" once he graduates college. Instead, he is dedicated to having as much fun as humanly possible while in college, which includes getting drunk and having sex. He is from Cheyenne, Wyoming.
* Sammy Cacciatore (Chris Romano): The team mascot (Mounty, The Mountain Goat Mascot) and Alex's roommate. Is constantly searching for girls and excuses to get drunk, with his drinking often leading him into misadventure. Like Alex, he grew up in Wyoming.
* Thad Castle (Alan Ritchson): A junior linebacker/team captain from Connecticut. Despite his status as a two time consensus All-American and team record holder for most tackles in a game (a game which he was subsequently ejected from for calling referees "butt faces"), Thad is largely hated by his teammates for his bullying and high strung antics when things do not go his way. Has a father who died while in the military, stationed in Bosnia and has an attractive half-sister of which he is overly protective. He is also heavily prone to engage in excessive homoerotic behavior, especially in the hazing rituals of freshman players.Read more ›
