Funny at times but Overall Bad and not for anyone!

Jonah is a terrible role model along with his friends. He bullies others and is disrespectful of authority. There are no decent role models in this Show. Even the youth worker who doesn't take their behavior seriously and thinks Jonah is good but isn't. DON'T ACTUALLY BOTHER WITH THIS!!!!!!!!!!

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
