Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This half-hour animated comedy trades on the lowest of lowbrow humor, painting a portrait of teenage life as a fever dream of borderline stalker behavior, cartoonishly objectified women, a parade of constant insults and indignities, and relentless mockery over your weight.

Which might work (for the right viewers, anyway) if the jokes were at least funny. Instead, nearly every quip or sight gag plays as a reject from the Family Guy writers' room. It's clear that's the type of territory the series is trying to stake out -- perhaps a "hipper" version of Fox's block of edgy animation. But while Good Vibes might get the tone sort of right and is most certainly animated, in every other sense it fails as a TV series.
