Looking for a Series or Film featuring the university environment. Anyone?
 
To give some light on what I'm looking for:
  • I really enjoyed the episodes of Season Four of House M.D. in which he is rounding up a new team, in that giant classroom of his
  • I also really enjoyed the earlier episodes of The Magicians and How To Get Away With Murder
  • also How I Met Your Mother, when Ted starts teaching Architecture
No comedy, preferably.

What do you guys suggest?

Dear White People if you want a heavily political (and controversial) series. Other than that, I generally avoid these things. Too much melodrama and I already get enough of that stupidity from the kids I sit in class with.

Dead Poets Society, Good Will Hunting, and With Honors are the only ones I can think of. And Veronica Mars I guess.

21? It is a decent, interesting movie though it is about gambling and math as much as it is about university.

A Beautiful Mind is largely set in a university.

I was also gonna suggest that math movie with Matt Damon... but then it turns out it is called Good Will Hunting and Sheki has already suggested it. It is probably one of the first ones you should look into.

I'm afraid I can only think of comedies. The Freshman is a silent movie, but is bar none the funniest college film I've ever seen. It's aged pretty well.

In fact, it's passed out of the public domain and is freely available on YouTube.



Seriously, watch it!

Back to School is also an amusing film, though it's kind of paint-by-numbers. The Kurt Vonnegut Jr. cameo is great, however.

For serious movies, there's Paper Chase, which is good but not really exceptional.

Dead Poets Society is in a preparatory high school, not a university.
