Tv Season Info

From the pen of Dino Stamatopoulos comes "High School USA!" which is an animated series following an overly optimistic group of high-school students. In the first season we follow the antics of Marsh Merriweather ( Vincent Kartheiser ), Brad Slovee ( T.J. Miller ), Blackstein ( Nathan Barnatt ), Cassandra ( Mandy Moore ), and Amber ( Zosia Mamet ) as they fumble their way naively through modern teenage drama including sexting, bullying and BFFs.

Any way you look at it, it doesn't quite scan.

It seems to be trying to mock the idealized view of teen life in the old Archie Comics while also making points about contemporary high school. With its attention divided, the show misses its targets most of the time

The jokes aren't sharply written enough to make the sitcommy antics funny, and the goings on aren't absurd enough to elevate the same old plots you've seen a million times.

Most viewers will recognize the South Park-like humor, critiquing the problem by critiquing the mainstream response to it.

High School USA! has its moments of humor as it takes a contrarian approach to conventional wisdom about high school

Perverts the Archie ideal to its own twisted ends.

High School USA! bears the darkly comedic mark of Stamatopoulos' previous work in animation.

High School USA!, a broad and dull spoof of the Archie gang, slides down the wall quickly.

High School USA! flunks its admission test - an exercise in tiresome naughtiness for its own sake.

    It is a play on Archie comics, yet it is very adult. Overall a great show; it is very different than what one might expect.
