    Any way you look at it, it doesn’t quite scan--which is the point, probably. The show’s not meant to be dissected; it’s meant to be watched as the makers intended: more than half-blazed.

    Stupid and sometimes insulting (just not in the way the writers intended). The idea of creating a vulgar comedy centered around events thatStupid and sometimes insulting (just not in the way the writers intended). The idea of creating a vulgar comedy centered around events that are currently happening is high schools is a good one, but it's clear that the writers lack any real understanding of the topics or how teens deal with them. It's clear from both the animation and characters that this is an attempt at making a vulgar "Archie" rip-off/parody. The worst offense of this show is just how not funny it is. Rather than making jokes it focuses on trying to shock and offend. The problem with this is that it's genuinely not offensive, it's just stupid. The first episode "Bullies" is a clear example of this. Rather than actually taking a deep look at the topic while simultaneously making jokes about it like a show like "South Park" would, this show tells us that bullies are to be shown pity because they are not in control of their own actions and that we're bad people because we view what they are doing is wrong. It's stupid, unfunny, and shows a clear lack of understanding of the topic. Make no mistake "High School USA!" is a poor attempt at an animated comedy show, and really isn't worth anyone's time.

    Having seen 2 episodes, It's really not that bad. It's just a really perverted animated show that I am honestly surprised to see on Fox. IfHaving seen 2 episodes, It's really not that bad.

    The humor isn't dark...It's dumb.

    I expected more...An Asian Veronica and African American nerd makes me bored and sad....It's just lame.

    Shark jumped on first episode. I really don't get the point of view...It seems like boring clueless people trying to be edgy. What happened to Mr. Stamapopolous?
