For a mere $10, Eric Jaffe can give you a higher education. It is most likely to be well spent by anyone who has spent in excess of $500 on a university class that, in retrospect, would seem to have been better used plugging slot machines or buying Pokémon cards. 

C- is centered around a series of interviews with members of the protagonist's former fraternity brothers, now middle-aged. The exercise yields much that is self defining, some that is sad and poignant, and frequently that which is simply hilarious.

This show understands the difference between the pursuit of self versus the pursuit of wealth. 

Jaffe's characterizations are strong and his fundamental premise is satisfying: that life is about the people who help you enrich it, not about those who pursue enrichment based on a coronation in an ivory tower.
