Total Drama

Canadian animated comedy television series

Total Drama (often shortened as TD) is a Canadian animatedcomedytelevision series which is a homage to and satire of common conventions from reality television. It premiered on the Canadian cable television specialty channel Teletoon in Canada on July 8, 2007, and on the American cable television channel Cartoon Network in the U.S. on June 5, 2008.[7] The show revolves around a group of teenagers competing in a fictional reality television show, while developing relationships with each other. Its style is similar to that of Survivor in that the contestants compete in challenges for rewards and immunity from elimination. The contestants are progressively eliminated from the game as they are voted out by their fellow-contestants until only one remains to be awarded the grand prize. Total Drama was met with critical praise upon release and has developed a cult following.

The Total Drama series is the original series of the greater Total Drama franchise, which consists of six seasons that have aired during a timeframe of eight years: the first season, Total Drama Island, the second season, Total Drama Action, the third season, Total Drama World Tour, the fourth season, Total Drama: Revenge of the Island, the fifth season, Total Drama All-Stars and lastly, Total Drama: Pahkitew Island. The latest installment premiered on July 7, 2014, in the United States[8] and September 4, 2014, in Canada.[9] A spin-off series based on the main series, The Ridonculous Race was released on September 7, 2015.[10] A spin-off series in an alternative universe, titled Total DramaRama, was released on September 1, 2018, on Cartoon Network in the U.S. and on October 7, 2018, on Teletoon in Canada.[5][6] The spin-off was successful, and was renewed for two more seasons.[11]

On February 17, 2021, it was announced that the main series of Total Drama will return for two seasons and air on Cartoon Network and HBO Max.[12]

Format[edit]

The name of each season consists of the title Total Drama with a different word or phrase later added. That changing word or phrase defines the theme for that season. This series is a competition to win a cash prize of C$100,000 in the first season and C$1,000,000 in every other season. This series takes elements of other widely known series such as Survivor, Fear Factor, The Amazing Race, and Escape from Scorpion Island. Like these other series, Total Drama is rated TV-PG because it features mild profanity, censored language, brief censored nudity, and some suggestive dialogue. When more suggestive dialogue is present, the episode is rated TV-PG-D. The first three seasons are rated TV-PG-D while the latter two are rated TV-PG. Unlike many other animated shows, this series has a different logo for every season (while each season might have multiple alternate logos).

Location[edit]

Most seasons in this series takes place in a different location. The first season, Total Drama Island, is set at Camp Wawanakwa, a fictional island in an unspecified area in Muskoka, Ontario. The second season, Total Drama Action, is set in an abandoned movie studio lot in Toronto, Ontario. In the third season, Total Drama World Tour, the contestants are taken all around the world in the "Total Drama Jumbo Jet", which seems to be structurally unstable. Some of the countries visited in the third season are Canada, France, Germany, Japan, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The fourth season, Total Drama: Revenge of the Island, is set back at Camp Wawanakwa, but this time the island is radioactive. The first part of the fifth season, Total Drama All-Stars, also takes place on the island,[13] due to the first and fourth seasons' success. The second part, Total Drama: Pahkitew Island, takes place on Pahkitew Island after the destruction of Camp Wawanakwa.[9]

Production[edit]

Total Drama was developed and produced by Fresh TV and was distributed by Cake Entertainment. The series is funded in part by the Canada Media Fund (formerly the Canadian Television Fund), and the Canadian Film or Video Production Tax Credit.[14] The first season was funded by Xenophile Media, Bell Broadcast and New Media Fund. The series, primarily targeted at tweens and teenagers, was animated at Elliott Animation and directed by Todd Kauffman and Mark Thornton of Neptoon Studios.[15] The creators, Tom McGillis and Jennifer Pertsch, studied what teenagers liked and disliked about reality television shows in the writing process.[16]

McGillis says they used a "countrywide online research project" to determine this demographic's likes.[17] Fresh TV Inc. partners McGillis, Pertsch, Elliott and Irving produced the series.[18] The budget for the first season was US$8 million.[19] It was animated in Flash,[15] at Elliott Animation's studio in Toronto.[18]

Every cast and crew member on Total Drama had to sign a confidentiality agreement not to disclose who the winner was.[20] All the characters were designed by Kauffman.[21] An early name for the series was Camp TV when the series first started production in 2006.[22] Camp TV Productions is still labeled in the end credits of every episode, along with the season number in Roman numerals.

Series production stopped in 2014 as no new seasons were produced since. Instead, starting in 2015 the studio has focused the franchise more on producing separate spin-off series, with their respective voice actors being reused in the new spin-offs.

On May 3, 2017, it was announced that Total Drama would be making a return. It was later revealed that it would be returning as a new series titled Total DramaRama. The show is a spin-off that has the contestants as kids in daycare.

On February 17, 2021, it was announced that the main series Total Drama would return for two more seasons produced for HBO Max.[12]

However, in a Reddit Q&A on September 25, 2018, when asked if there would be additional seasons, McGillis responded with "Nope. Sorry to be a dreamkiller, but there's no market for this experience in the wider entertainment marketplace right now", indicating plans changed as time went on.[42] On February 17, 2021, it was announced that Total Drama would return for two more seasons.[12]

Voice actors[edit]

There are various voice actors who have recorded the voices for all the characters in the Total Drama series. Both Christian Potenza and Clé Bennett voice the two main characters in the series, who appear in almost every episode.[47] Christian Potenza plays the role of egotistical and unempathetic host Chris McLean, saying that the best part of the job was that his character could not be voted off the show.[48] Clé Bennett voices Chef Hatchet, who serves as McLean's assistant. Other voice actors include Brian Froud, who voices contestants Harold and Sam and is the only other voice actor who has the main role in every season. Emilie-Claire Barlow plays the contestant Courtney on Total Drama and stated that Courtney was her favorite character that she had ever played.[49]

Ratings[edit]

As of 2011, the first season has been shown in over 188 countries[14] while the entire franchise has been seen in at least 100.[62] The series has received high ratings, ranking #1 for the under-14 age group base throughout the series airing period on Cartoon Network.[63] The series also has very involved fans who continue discussion about the series throughout various online communities, while also inspiring them to create their own fanart and fanfictions.[8]Cake Entertainment, the main distributor of the series, calls the show "phenomenally popular",[62] while the creator of the series said that "For tweens around the world, Total Drama is more than just a parody of a reality show. It's THEIR reality show".[8]

Critical reaction[edit]

The first season, Total Drama Island received general acclaim from critics and fans. Users from TV.com gave the show an 8.6 "Great",[64] while users from IMDb gave it a 7.5 out of 10.[65]Common Sense Media gave the show 4 out of 5 stars, calling it a "[c]lever cartoon reality show spoof".[66] This season is known to be well-regarded by fans[who?] ever since.[citation needed]

The second season, Total Drama Action, received less acclaim due to being seen as less on par with Total Drama Island; a primary criticism was the selection of contestants from Island who had already made it far in that season, thus neglecting most of the contestants who were eliminated earlier. Action currently holds a 7.9 on Metacritic based on 14 reviews.[67]

The third season, Total Drama World Tour, has also received critical acclaim from critics and won multiple awards including "Best Animated Series", "Best Voice Actress" (for Annick Obonsawin), and was also nominated for several other awards; however, the criticisms included the overuse of the love triangle between Courtney, Duncan, and Gwen, lack of development for characters returning from the first season, and the destruction of the character Ezekiel.[citation needed]

Total Drama: Revenge of the Island received mixed to positive reviews, airing in over 100 countries and holding a 6.7 on Metacritic based on 15 reviews, thus indicating "generally favorable reviews."[68] However, it was not as acclaimed by fans as the first season with the well-regarded original cast.[citation needed]

Total Drama All-Stars received mixed to negative reviews, with the primary criticisms being the neglecting of original favorites in favor of the Revenge of the Island cast and many wasted plotlines such as building up a reconciliation between Courtney and Gwen, only to have it be ruined again. All-Stars currently holds a 5.4 rating on Metacritic based on 9 reviews.[69]Total Drama Pahkitew Island, however, received significantly more positive reviews by critics but is sometimes criticized by fans of the show for the new cast's appearances being more "stereotyped" compared to the original cast.[citation needed]

Online promotion[edit]

Teletoon hosted a Total Drama-based website called "Total Drama Online" from 2009 to 2013 where players could play games and earn badges to win prizes.[86] Even though most features (like user accounts, original avatar designer and badge counter) from this website are exclusive to only Canadian viewers, all of the games and basic elements were available to the rest of the world. Cartoon Network also had their own Total Drama website from 2009 to 2015 which was very similar to the Canadian one,[87] but was only exclusive to viewers in the United States. Various alternate websites based on the series also exist throughout most of the other countries the show airs in, which are all in their respective languages.[88]

There is a new host this series called Don, who replaced the original host Chris.[90] Even though some of the characters from the main series make appearances, the spin-off series is primarily dominated by a new cast.[4] The spin-off series is a "buddy comedy" and includes 18 pairs of teams (36 characters). It first premiered on September 7, 2015, on Cartoon Network and later premiered on January 4, 2016, on the Canadian version of Cartoon Network.[91]

Total Drama Action

Its unique TV genre may be an oxymoron, but this animated reality spoof is so good at what it does that it might just make a dent in "real" reality shows' grip on the viewer market. If you're even moderately familiar with competition shows like Survivor and Fear Factor (and who can avoid them these days?), you'll get a kick out of this cartoon's satirical view of the stereotypical contestant pool, peppy host, and outrageous challenges the castmates must endure.

As for your kids, it's a safe bet that if they're too young to watch live-action reality shows, there's really no need for them to tune into a cartoon that spoofs them, since they won't understand most of the humor and may get the wrong idea about the intentionally one-dimensional characters. On the other hand, tweens and teens who can put the characters' obvious flaws and mildly bad behavior into context and will see this show for what it truly is: a comical commentary on the state of current entertainment.

Total Drama Action

This article is about the second season. For the entire series, see Total Drama.

Season of television series

Total Drama Action (mostly shortened as TDA) is a Canadian animated television series. It is the second season of the Total Drama series, which began with Total Drama Island. The show premiered in Teletoon at 6:30 pm ET/PT[1] on January 11, 2009. This season was also created by the makers of 6teen, another Teletoon program. This is the only season for Teletoon not to air a new episode every week.

Plot[edit]

Like Total Drama Island, the previous season, much of Total Drama Action chronicles the events of the eponymous fictional reality shows. The Total Drama series itself is an "animated reality television series", which stars the cast and crew of the fictional series, parodying many aspects of reality television in general. After last season's winner forgoes their prize money of C$100,000 for a challenge (open to all 22 of Total Drama Island's contestants) in which the winner would receive C$1,000,000, the money was left in limbo after a situation resulted in a 14-way tie.

As such, show host Chris McLean (Christian Potenza) had no choice but to commission a second competition with all 14 tied contestants. The contestants are told to arrive at an abandoned movie studio lot in Toronto, Ontario, where the new competition, titled "Total Drama Action", would take place. Because of its location, Chris tells the contestants that the challenges would all be in the form of various movie genres. The accommodations of the contestants are handled by Chef Hatchet (Clé Bennett) in a similar manner to how it was handled in the previous season. The outhouse which was used as a confessional in Total Drama Island has been replaced with a makeup trailer for the cast to use, although Chris and Chef do use it in various episodes during the TDA season.

After a quick elimination of two contestants, the couple Bridgette (Kristin Fairlie) and Geoff (Dan Petronijevic), a second challenge determined the team captains of the two competing teams: the Screaming Gaffers, headed by Gwen (Megan Fahlenbock), and the Killer Grips, headed by Trent (Scott McCord). (though they sound similar to the others from Total Drama Island). From then on, challenges would alternate between "reward challenges" where winners would receive a special prize, and "elimination challenges" where the losing team would vote off one of its own in an elaborate "Gilded Chris Ceremony".

The pattern of reducing the contestants down was briefly interrupted on two occasions: once when Izzy (Katie Crown) was reinstated following a voting irregularity where her alter-ego, "E-Scope", was voted off, and another time when Courtney (Emilie-Claire Barlow), a contestant who did not originally qualify for Total Drama Action, successfully sued the show and was added into the game. The players eliminated would make the "walk of shame" and into the "Lame-o-sine", where they leave the movie studio.

Once seven contestants were left, the Screaming Gaffers and the Killer Grips were dissolved, and the challenges became individual-oriented in nature. Chris hired Owen as his ringer to sabotage the other contestants and to create drama. Eventually, two contestants were left standing: Duncan (Drew Nelson) and Beth (Sarah Gadon), with both contestants being considered official winners depending on the country of airing.

Contestant Voice actor Nickname Description
BethSarah GadonThe Nice Girl Beth was born and raised on a farm with only animal friends and her parents to keep her company. Thanks to her background, she never developed proper social skills, and while she excels at getting others to stop and stare, it is more often than not for embarrassing reasons. In between Total Drama Island and Total Drama Action, Beth had her braces removed, which drastically builds up her confidence. Her kindness is well-received amongst the cast, particularly by her best friend, Lindsay. She remains a strong enough competitor to make it to the finale alongside Duncan.
BridgetteKristin FairlieThe Surfer Girl Bridgette is a calm, compassionate surfer girl who loves animals almost as much as she loves the water. She and Geoff are the first contestants voted off the show after their constant make-out sessions annoy the other competitors. This leads them to becoming the co-hosts of Total Drama Aftermath, a talk show in which they interview the contestants just eliminated from the show and showcase highlights from the season.
CourtneyEmilie-Claire BarlowThe Type A Courtney is a perfectionist who desires to be best at everything, and sees herself as a born leader. Her desire for success often clashes with her own principles and can come off as being quite bossy and critical, which leads her to be disliked by many contestants. Courtney originally did not qualify for Total Drama Action, but managed to get on the show by filing a lawsuit against the producers (which also allowed her to get special treatment compared to the other contestants such as lobster dinners and her own bathroom). She becomes the primary antagonist for the second half of the season as the contestants dislike her bossy attitude and special treatment, only finding an ally in her boyfriend, Duncan.
DJClé BennettThe Brickhouse With a Heart DJ is a very soft-spoken and sensitive guy who is compassionate and kind to those around him despite his intimidating size. In Total Drama Action, DJ is forced into a secret alliance by Chef, who agrees to toughen up DJ and aid him in the competition in exchange for a share of the million. During his time with Chef, DJ also worked in the kitchen and secretly cooked a number of well-received meals for the contestants. However, DJ eventually quits the competition after his guilt for the alliance overwhelms him.
DuncanDrew NelsonThe Delinquent Duncan is a crafty juvenile delinquent and obnoxious bully who knows many tactics from his time spent in juvenile detention centers. His experience in juvy has made him into a strong and ruthless competitor who is still disliked by many others, especially Harold, who remains a favorite target of his antagonism, but still shows affection towards his teammates from time to time (though such occasions are rare for most people). He starts faltering when Courtney returns to the competition, and is targeted for elimination multiple times both due to his connection to her and because of his share of dislike, but is spared by manipulation or luck to the other competitors. Despite his obstacles with the other contestants and Courtney, he manages to make it to the finale alongside Beth.
GeoffDan PetronijevicThe Funniest Guy Around Geoff may not be the smartest contestant in the bunch, but he has a positive attitude, loves people, and is always up for a party. He and Bridgette are the first contestants voted off the show after their constant make-out sessions annoy the other competitors. This leads them to becoming the co-hosts of Total Drama Aftermath, a talk show in which they interview the contestants just eliminated from the show and showcase highlights from the season. As a result of becoming a reality show host, Geoff starts to become an egotistical, sadistic "Captain Hollywood" with a personality similar to that of Chris's. He mercilessly tortures the eliminated contestants on the Total Drama Aftermath chair for ratings, and even goes as far as insulting Bridgette, prompting her to end their union. It ends up being extremely short-lived though, as the group turns Geoff's own tool against him and reminds him of who he really is.
GwenMegan FahlenbockThe Loner Gwen is a goth girl whose interests lie in art and astronomy. She and Trent initially date at the beginning of the season, but as the competition progresses, their relationship falls apart when Trent starts acting desperately to impress her (fearing that she may be falling for Duncan). After Gwen breaks up with Trent and confesses to his team that Trent was causing them to lose for her, she tries to make it up to the Grips by throwing the next challenge, resulting in her elimination. At the Aftermath, she is initially ill-received by the audience and other contestants for her actions towards Trent.
HaroldBrian FroudThe Dweeb Harold is a skinny, awkward-looking guy who takes pride in his knowledge, resourcefulness, and "Mad Skills" in subjects like filming and beatboxing. He has a large crush on Leshawna and continually tries to impress her. Early in the season, Duncan bullies Harold even more than in Total Drama Island after he found out Harold's role in Courtney's elimination the previous season, but the two bond over time as teammates and fellow competitors. Despite Leshawna repeatedly encouraging others that she and Harold are just friends, she does show romantic feelings towards him at multiple points during the season.
HeatherRachel WilsonThe Queen Bee Heather competes with her sights solely on the prize money and not on making friends, using others at her advantage and only being kind when she may ultimately be benefited. In Total Drama Action, Heather is still bald after losing her hair in the previous season and shows obsession with getting it covered up by a wig or another contestant's hair. She is also the only one to stand up for Leshawna after Leshawna's insults towards the cast are exposed.
Izzya.k.a. "E-Scope" or "Explosivo" Katie CrownThe Psycho Hose Beast Izzy is seen as one of the show's craziest contestants. She is fun but hard to handle and to the other contestants, more trouble than she is worth. Izzy has extraordinary athletic and fighting abilities, and also sticks herself to the wild environment. During the season, she constantly reminds the other contestants to call her "Kaleidoscope" (or "E-Scope" for short) as she changed her name at the end of last season. She is the first one voted off her team, but is allowed to rejoin the competition after changing her name to back to Izzy, only to create a male alter-ego named "Explosivo."
JustinAdam ReidThe Eye Candy Justin is a supermodel of incredible beauty. He is so handsome that he can make everyone around, whether they are female, male, or animal, stop dead in his or her tracks at the mere sight of him. Contrast to his appearance in Total Drama Island, Justin is no longer mute and serves as the main antagonist for the first half of the season before Courtney shows up. He uses his looks to successfully manipulate the other contestants into doing what he wants, but he loses his charm as the competition progresses (which he blames for the amount of injury he has received throughout the show).
LeshawnaNovie Edwards The Sister With 'Tude Leshawna is loyal and sassy, yet also can be affectionate and caring. If shown respect, she will reciprocate it indefinitely. Leshawna tells it like it is, and has no fear whatsoever of calling people out on their mistakes. She tries to form an alliance between her, Duncan, and Harold, but midway through the season, she angers her teammates and fellow competitors when it is revealed she manipulated them into letting her have the reward from a challenge (which was going to the spa with her cousin) and that she insulted most of the other competitors behind their backs. She spends most of her remaining time in the competition trying to make it up to her friends.
LindsayStephanie Anne MillsThe Dumb Princess Lindsay is described as being beautiful, but not vain. While Lindsay is one of the prettiest competitors on the show and is spoilt silly by her father, she is kind hearted and is able to make friends with almost everyone. However her lack of intelligence often leads to her downfall. Initially in Action, Lindsay keeps forgetting that her boyfriend Tyler is no longer in the competition, but is happy to be competing with her best friend from last season, Beth. Lindsay starts to assume more of a leadership role within her team later on and competes with Courtney for control over their team.
OwenScott McCordThe Party Guy Owen is a huggable, upbeat, fun-loving, friendly, passionate, and optimistic competitor, who is basically in Total Drama to have fun more than win the grand prize. Owen's three biggest loves are eating, having a good time and passing a large amount of gas. Among his peers, he is arguably the most popular contestant of all time for his cheerful ways, optimistic viewpoints no matter what the situation is, and ability to see the best in other people. After he is unfairly eliminated by Courtney, he is allowed to return to the competition later in the season by Chris, who hired him back to secretly sabotage the other contestants which Owen only agreed to do so he could pay off his mother's cheese cellar purchase.
TrentScott McCordThe Cool Guy Trent is a relaxed, nice guy who tends to get along with everyone with his social skills and ability to play the guitar. Trent was dating Gwen at the beginning of the season, but when they are forced to compete on opposite teams, their relationship starts falling apart. Trent believes Gwen is falling for Duncan and uses his obsession with the number nine as a coping mechanism when under stress. After Trent starts purposefully throwing his team's challenges to make Gwen happy, Gwen breaks up with him and tells his team to vote him off. Depressed about the events at first, Trent eventually brushes it off with the help of many new female fans.

Episode finale variations[edit]

The show's producers created two alternate endings for the final episode, such that the winner seen in one country's broadcasts is the runner-up in other countries (and vice versa) where the show airs. In Canada, Duncan was aired as the winner as well as in Denmark, Latin America, Norway, the Philippines, and in the United States.[citation needed] Beth is also depicted as the winner in airings from Australia, Brazil, Bulgaria, Croatia, Finland, France, Hungary, Israel, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, Spain, South Africa, Sweden, and the United Kingdom.[citation needed]

Production[edit]

Like Total Drama Island, Total Drama Action was developed and produced by Fresh TV, targeting an age group of 10- to 16-year-olds. Many of the show's settings, as well as the show's opening sequence, are deliberately made to be as close as to their Total Drama Island counterparts as possible; Camp Wawanakwa, the setting of Total Drama Island, was also revisited on several occasions, most notably as the site of some of the season's challenges. All of the cast of Total Drama Island return in the same roles as that of Total Drama Island, though some had their roles reduced as their characters were not as prominent in this season. As with Total Drama Island, two endings were commissioned for the series, one with each of the final two competitors winning; after the airing of the penultimate episode and prior to the season finale, viewers were prompted to the show's website (either at Teletoon for viewers in Canada or Cartoon Network for American viewers) to vote for the desired ending. Unlike Total Drama Island, however, the alternate ending was available as a webcast on the show's website immediately following its airing.

Reception[edit]

Total Drama Action has received mixed reviews from critics and fans. Most critics[who?] agree the season does not live up to the first season, Total Drama Island, and others[who?] say the season was more "childish" and "bad".[citation needed] However some critics[who?] and fans did enjoy Total Drama Action as much as the first season along with a majority of critics[who?] praising the character development of the characters who had small roles in the first season.[citation needed]Total Drama Action received a 7.6 on Metacritic by fans, which indicates "generally favorable reviews".[3] Like the critics, many fans believed that this season did not live up to the previous season, Total Drama Island.

Media[edit]

DVD releases[edit]

Australia is the only country in the world that has released Total Drama Action on DVD. They have released the first half of the season on a Region 4 DVD on November 2, 2011 which includes the Total Drama Island special, "Total Drama Drama Drama Drama Island".[4] Australia then released the second half of Total Drama Action on July 4, 2012.[5][6]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^The first elimination consisted of a double elimination, in which the two castmates with the highest number of votes would be eliminated.
  2. ^Izzy announced she was changing her name to "Kaleidoscope" (or "E-Scope" for short), and claimed that E-Scope was getting voted off, not Izzy, therefore returning to the game as Izzy a few episodes later.
  3. ^The Killer Grips lost the challenge and either Justin or Lindsay were about to be voted off. However, DJ announced that he was voting himself off out of guilt for the secret alliance he had with Chef Hatchet.
  4. ^Courtney had the most votes, but she was immune by contract, meaning only her vote actually counted. Since she voted for Owen, he was automatically eliminated.
  5. ^Lindsay accidentally voted for herself, and was eliminated in a 3-2-1 vote.
  6. ^The other contestants uncovered Owen's identity as Chris' saboteur, so Chris disqualified Owen from the game for not being able to keep it a secret.

Total Drama Action

Originally released in 2009, TOTAL DRAMA ACTION is a 27-episode Canadian animated sequel series to the original TOTAL DRAMA ISLAND. The concept parodies such reality shows as SURVIOR and FEAR FACTOR.

At the conclusion of TOTAL DRAMA ISLAND, 14 contestants were deemed “tied” to win a million dollars, and continued with the game to an abandoned Canadian movie lot, where the contests and challenges were based on movie genres. Once at the movie lot, the contestants are divided into two scenes: The Scream Gaffers and The Killer Grips. The former contestants observe them from yet another tv series, and when a contestant is eliminated, they are sent to the show to explain their actions.

The characters are familiar from the first series, but they develop in different ways. Gwen and Trent, who ended the first series as a couple, find their relationship strained when they are placed on opposing teams, and characters like the wannabe pop teen Beth are more detailed. As before, hosts are Chris McLean, a snarky, shallow, and amoral individual, and The Chef, a massively built black man who serves as cook and general henchman. ISLAND was uneven, and ACTION is more so, with the deliberately flat amination a drawback to the opening episodes, which seem a little anticlimactic. It’s a step down from the first series.

Younger children, the twelve and below group, may find it entertaining—but I wouldn’t go there. It’s too violent, some of the episodes and storylines will be disturbing, and a large chunk of the show will go over their heads. This is really a program for thirteen and up, the sort of grotesque humor tweens and teens find hilarious and which adults can latch onto as well. Somewhat mindless, and not always successful, but unexpected watchable.
