‘Destroy the Alpha Gammas’ Commands Attention
We ranked it:
It takes a very special breed of writer (and actor) to capture the stigmas and stereotypes of college, and more specifically Greek Life. Billed as a musical comedy that is an “exploration of rivalry and revenge,” “Destroy the Alpha Gammas” does a beautiful job through both the script and the acting at portraying the ridiculousness of sorority life and rivalries.
Where the series really shines is in the pairing of the pop-music selections with the storyline and in bringing to life the internet’s own “Glee”-like show, despite their tagline claiming otherwise (“This isn’t Glee club. This is Greek warfare.”) The musical segments do miss the mark at times in that they feel more like music videos than a broadway musical scene. But with a high production value and a seasoned team — “Destroy the Alpha Gammas” is directed by Streamy Award nominee Scott Brown, stars singer/actress Leah McKendrick, and welcomes TV-regulars like Jon Robert Hall, Lindsey Morgan, and Sara Fletcher — the show, which is now in its seventh episode, feels more like TV than an indie web series.
“Destroy the Alpha Gammas,” clocking in at roughly seven minutes per episode, certainly merits a binge-watch session. And while it’s currently distributed through YouTube and Dailymotion, we wouldn’t be surprised if “Destory the Alpha Gammas” locks down a bigger deal down the line.
