This is one of the only times I have ever disagreed with a Common Sense review. First of all, it's Carver who wants to be cool, not the whole group. The friends have differing interests, but they do come through in the end. Second, I like that Tish and Lor, the girls of the group, aren't snobby, stereotypical shopaholics. They're more intelligent and athletic than the guys, and share a very close friendship, even though they're opposites. Thirdly, the word crap was hidden well (Tino: Good thing you don't want to be Cool, Rich, And Popular!) and not likely to be noticed by kids. Lastly, I love that the characters break the fourth wall, but it isn't done in a way that makes viewers feel stupid. That, and it's very funny. So basically, you either didn't watch enough episodes or are just nitpicking. Bye for now!
