Storyline

As video game characters, Rip and Raquel Smashenburn face many challenges. Racecar driving (i.e. wrecking) and monster vanquishing are difficult enough, yet neither vocation compares to the struggles of raising two kids. 14-year-old Alice is discovering a new level of social conscience, while 13-year-old Billy hopes to develop social standing via an over-the-top hip-hop persona. Turbo is the Smashenburns' nondescript, 300-pound "pet," but obedience isn't one of his traits. And because no neighborhood would be complete without a family of Kung Fu fighting Shaolin Monks, the Changs live next door. Written by David Levy {d_levy@lifeisunfair.net}

Very Entertaining!
25 June 2006 | by See all my reviews

My husband and I (late 30's), just rented this video and found it to be extremely funny and well written. It's a shame it is still not in production. We had never heard of this show previously or would have watched it regularly. I feel that the target audience may have brought it's premature demise. Being the parents of teenagers, we found the humor on target and not at all stereotypical. I could have seen this show doing quite well in the ratings had it been lined up with "That 70's Show" or "Simpsons" which have a wide range of viewers. I'm not a video game player like my husband but still found the hidden game references entertaining. The storyline also had a moral to it which could have been under appreciated by the younger set.
