It's OK.

First off,this show DOES intend to entertain than to edacate.But this show has some edacational lessons.Sure there is named calling (also,some of the characters say stuff like "shut up").Overall:This is is alright.

Kelly( Ashley Argota) is the eye candy of this series and she walks around in pretty skimpy outfits. I really don't think it fits and she just shouldn't dress that way. The talk about hickeys and making out are also a big turnoff. Aloe is kind of funny, but the show itself is really stupid. There is no point to watch.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (3 ):
Kids say (15 ):

This lighthearted buddy comedy has fun written all over it, which certainly will delight and entertain young tweens. Bucket and Skinner are a modern-day odd couple, and the discrepancies in their personalities –- Skinner's ultra-chill to Bucket's overanalysis –- make for some appropriately wacky predicaments. Though the show greatly glosses over the realities of teen life (school is merely an extension of their social life, and an absence of adults usually means minimal responsibilities), that shouldn't keep tweens from enjoying some laughs.

The fact that the stories often center on Bucket's unabashed desire for a romantic relationship with Kelly offers parents the opportunity to talk to tweens about healthy relationships. Be sure to point out how Kelly stays friendly with Bucket while resisting his advances, and use the chance to reiterate your own family's values and rules around dating. And while you're at it, talk to your kids about how the show puts a humorous spin on issues like bullying -- and the kinds of messages that sends to the audience.
