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}

Spend your quarters on better writers
10 March 2004 | by (Boulder City) – See all my reviews

Another attempt to look behind the screen of videos games comes up short against "Reboot".

Granted, it matches Mainframe's animated classic series in the technology, but for all it's attempts, it comes up short with lackluster gags, lame jokes and also ran dialogue. The pilot offers no real difference in this show and a dozen other live TV sitcoms that have failed for being nothing more than copies of other sitcoms. Adding the aspect of digital animation doesn't change the fact that it's nothing new.

Sorry guys, spend your quarters on better writers. In fact, you may want to considering spending less on the technology and more on the writers.
