  • It's kind of like Superbad but it's just quite not there.

    MTV has been putting out a lot of really stupid reality shows in the last 10 years (Well other then Human Giant), so it's kind of a surprise then that they decided to actually make a scripted television series. The show focuses on the adventures of a nerd in high school, taken for a Superbad approach. Most of the jokes in the show are penis related, and focus on the main character RJ Berger, the aforementioned nerd who is very well endowed. RJ is joined by his chubby best friend Miles, who has a very dirty mind as he tries to chase his dream girl Jenny Swanson who is dating the star basketball player of his high school. I'll be honest I don't find this show to be that funny with the exception of the Coach, he's kind of funny but everything else falls flat. It's just not funny, the kid who plays RJ Berger is a good actor and Jenny Swanson's a hottie but other then that this show has no consistent identity. It's just like putting loud music, a bunch of sex jokes and you got a TV series. The show isn't witty or anything it's basically an MTV take on Superbad without the heart, humor or originality.
