    It's completely stupid, although somehow, on top of it all, it manages to pull out a laugh or two if you're willing to channel your inner juvenile.

    The cartoon is often laugh-out-loud funny, pulling off ridiculously zany sight gags, such as when Mondo decides to impress a girl by surfing and, instead, inadvertently beheads a bird, among other things.

    Good Vibes delivered some good laughs in between crotch punches and penis punch lines.

    None of the characters--including the usual smart hot girl, mean hot girl and mean hot guy--range beyond well-established types, and the show would have to stand on a chair to aim any lower. But it is mostly sweet-tempered and oddly moral, and, as I write these words, I do not hate it.

    While it has contemporary music, appliances and vernacular, it has the soul of an old-school sitcom where the issues are basic: boys and girls, grownups and jobs, rogue waves and colorful surfboards.

    Aggressively dumb, sex-obsessed and occasionally misogynistic.

    The writing is juvenile, hormonal and often pretty dang funny.

    A more conventionally crass buddy comedy about a Jersey whale-out-of-water (voiced by Book of Mormon star Josh Gad) who moves to the California beachfront with his buxom mom (Debi Mazar),

    As for Good Vibes, think of it as another one of those ho-hum waves you can safely let roll by.

    A very fresh type of show that hasn't been seen on MTV in a long time. I like how it mixes pop culture, comedy, and hot scenes all into one great show. Hilarious we really need more shows like this on MTV. Full Review »

    It was not what I expected it to be. Nonetheless it is hilarious in a thousand ways and it has the perfect pace of pop culture references. You'll love it if you want a show that is impressively funny. Full Review »
