Radio Active

Show Summary

Welcome, fellow prisoners, to TV.com Radio Active page! Here you can read and share information with other Radio Active fans. Post in the message board, visit other fan pages, and vote for your favourite episode! The YTV Radio Active schedule is now available on this guide (scroll down to view all the episodes being shown on YTV for the days to come). This series deals a bunch of teenagers in High School (should be in Grade 12 by the end of the third season), who runs a Radio Broadcasts about news around the school, and contains edutainment shows and factors and music. In all three seasons, George Goodwin, Morgan Leigh, Tanya Panda, Blaire Resnickie, Roger Richards, Kevin Calvin, and Ethan St. John faces problems, school work, social stuff just like in reality. CHARACTERS GEORGE GOODWIN: George is a fool and is always unpredictable. A weird teenager who is not aware with what is happening around him. He is always confused and does not understand most things. He has a very strange personality and attitude. The spikey-haired guy that is a master at science and technology, but he only reveals this for a while before he becomes an idiot again. You never know what his grades are in school because all his work that are handed in is different from the others. Likes spending with his uncle Tibby and reading Normal Man comics, and has a very strange reality. No one understands how George does something incredibly ingenious or completely stupid. He one day wants to become a janitor, a quick or snappy dry cleaner, testing mattresses, or a mime. MORGAN LEIGH: The most productive worker at Radio Active, and has a history of very well done shows. She likes to think for herself and is able to help her fellow Radio Active friends with her cleaver ideas. Witty and reliable, she still hates the school system - she thinks that all the work that is given out are useless. She does not like Ms. Atoll but it is always covered up in front of the teacher. She one day hopes to become a film director. TANYA PANDA: A quiet and cautious person who wants to one day become a psychic. The most serious person in the group, she helps the entire group have peace among each other. She loves reading the horoscopes and tried to pursue a psychiatrist career. BLAIRE RESNICKIE: Perhaps the most unintelligent teenager in the school at the moment. Just like Kevin, he is only doing well in sports. He is always looking for new girlfriends and is unaware what they think of him. The competitive jock is born a leader, and wants to carry that through Radio. He has wacky plans that never actually work and he is one of the coolest people in the school. At the end of the series, he can become smart whenever he wants to - just by being hit in the head and can be reversed just by making the same action. ROGER RICHARDS: His ultimate goal is to please others. He believes his criticisms of others are entertaining and cool but everyone knows sooner or later that they too will be at the receiving end of one of his remarks. An intellectual being, he receives good marks while sucking up to Ms. Atoll. A weasel (stated by Tanya using psychiatrical terms), just like Ethan who does anything to get what he wants. KEVIN CALVIN: Incredibly dumb, he still thinks he is very smart compared to the others in his group. He is the captain of the hockey team and also joins other sports team to continue his popularity. He almost never had a chance to date any hot babes roaming the halls of Upper Redwood High, and is determined to please each one so they would go out with him. He has a very big ego, and is referred to as "boss" of Radio Active by Ethan St. John, he is a born leader and his ideas are lame and never work, but at the end, he sometimes make up the damage he has done. ETHAN ST. JOHN: Very concerned about his stocks and bank account, he is the biggest businessman and scam salesman in Radio Active. A big dweeb and suck, he carries his cell phone or pager with him everywhere. He has it with him to communicate with his mother. One of his most respectable shows on Radio Active is "The Stock Report". He wishes to be rich, so he can have lots of money to buy whatever he wants, so he does not need to go around the school selling different objects that do not seem to be whatever he is selling. He sells anything he can get his hands on - anything that is used and do not work at all, food that are not edible, liquids that do not do whatever he says it does, or forging different items. MR. ANGUS NOSEWORTHY: A laid-back vice principal of discipline who is clumsy and has no self-discipline. Miz Atoll is constantly trying to provoke him into action. But he has his own method for running the school and being stern is definitely not part of it. He constantly talks about "when I was your age..." anecdotes that are related to the student's topic but never solves their problem. MS. NOELLE ATOLL: She's a stern, set in her ways literature teacher who's respected by her students. She doesn't want to be responsible for "this self-indulgent mis-adventure in extra curricular activity", but she's been stuck with the job of moderating Radio Active. She does her absolute best to make life as miserable as possible for those foolish enough to sign up for Radio Active. No one ever quite understands what she wants because she sets something for the students to work on, but in her mind, she does not want them to follow her orders so she can send out multiple detentions or see them fail. SARAH LEIGH: Younger sister of Morgan's who constantly annoys/interrupts the group while they are at work. She loves entering the anteroom in the first season because her true love, Kevin is present. She signed up for mail duty multiple times, and glides through the halls with her roller blades to give mail to the students and teachers. She is full of insincere compliments for everyone.moreless

  • Bring it back

    7.6
    A radio station at this school and kids are chosen to run Radio Active under Mrs. Atoll. I loved it when I was around 13, but it left. IT was probably the best show ever in Canadian Television. It was funny and everyone had such funny names. Like Blair Resnickie, Tanya Panda and of course my fav, George Goodwin. Yeah, I sort of did thought that it was boring at first but when I saw a few more episodes, i started loving it like crazy. Everyone was so crazy and mental and that's what makes a show a favorite, and i like that.moreless
  • a good Canadian teen comedy.

    8.5
    This was a pretty good Canadian television comedy series. As is normal with good television shows, this one did not last long enough. This is a show that I would suggest watching if you get the chance. Check the bargain bins at Wal-Mart, the online movies sites (Amazon.com and such) and all of the cable channels that run old shows. Nick at Nite and TV Land are great for theses kind of shows. They will even do a week long spot for shows that only had 6 or so episodes. Then you have your super stations. They run a bunch of old shows too. All in all a pretty good show that did not get a good enough chance. Sometimes it is a simple as the show it is up against. Look at Law & Order. It is one of the longest running shows on TV. They moved it to go up against Lost. After about 2 weeks of getting pounded in the ratings it was moved back to it's original time slot. Shows like this should be given more of an opportunity.

  • Bring it back, YTV! Anyways... what do I like about this show...

    10
    This show is the best show there ever is! I loved the first season, but the second and third seasons are okay. One of the things that I love about this show is Giancarlo Caltabiano. He is so good at being George. And Ethan and Kevin were the best characters! Blair and Roger were okay, but not as funny as Ethan and Kevin. I will forever miss this show!
  • A great half hour teen comedy about students that broadcast radio

    7.5
    It had a great young cast of actors that had a future. The first season, and the best season of the series, had the orignal cast of Lucinda Davis, Giancarlo Caltabiano, Melissa Galianos, Michael Yarmush, and Vik Sahay. Each were very comedic in there on way. Lucinda's sweet, Giancarlo's goofy and crazy, Melissa was brash, Michael's greed and Vik's stupidity. But after the first season, Michael and Vik left the show, and added two more actors, Ryan Wilner and Andrew Walker. The show wasn't as funny in the second season then the first and the thrid season wasn't funny at all.moreless
