5.0 out of 5 stars It's not just a raunchy comedy series. It also has heart., January 19, 2012
This review is from: Good Vibes: Season 1 (DVD)
I was greatly surprised by this show when it came out. I was expecting just another goofy, raunchy comedy with teenagers and surfing. And while it does have those things it's also a very touching series with a good deal of heart. Montgomery "Mondo" Brando (voiced by Josh Gad) moves with his single mom, Barbara "Babs" Brando (voiced by Debi Mazar) from New Jersey to the beach community of Playa del Toro in Southern California. Mondo is overweight and self concious and very shy at first because of his fears of fitting in. Then he meets local surfer teen, Woodford "Woodie" Stone (voiced by Adam Brody) and the two become immediate best friends. With Woodie's help, Mondo slowly comes out of his shell and gets a taste for surfing as well. He also befriends hyperactive, paranoid, horny, and semi psychotic Winthrop Aguilera Wadska (voiced by Tony Hale) and his sister Jeena (voiced by Olivia Thirlby) whom Mondo developes romantic feelings for. Other characters include Jeena's on again off again boyfriend Dirk Kirk "Turk" Turkpatrick (voiced by Jake Busey), who at times is your typical meat head jock; Milan (voiced by Kari Whalgren) who's Woodie's self centered popular sister; sex-ed teacher Verneeta Teets (voiced by Danny McBride) who's over 400 pounds, gets around on a motorized scooter, is bi sexual, and despite her size is proud of her body and has amazing luck with men; and finally Lonnie (voiced by Alan Tudyk), a hippie and Gulf War vet who lives in a van and often gives Mondo and Woodie advice.

Despite all the craziness of most of the characters, this show does have a great deal of heart. Mondo is a sweet guy who just wants to fit in and be accepted for who he is. Woodie is a great best friend who despite coming from money wants to live a humble life. Despite a wild past, Babs is a good mother and is doing her best to make sure Mondo has a good future. Jeena is an attractive but intellegent young woman and even Turk and Milan has moments of empathy. Ms. Teets and Wadska are just hilarious. I really hope this show gets picked up for a second season as it's one of the few good shows on MTV in a very long time. Check it out if you can. ^_^
