Storyline

The series centers on 17-year-old Joshua "J" Cody, who moves in with his freewheeling relatives in their Southern California beach town after his mother dies of a heroin overdose. Headed by boot-tough matriarch Janine "Smurf" Cody and her right-hand Baz, who runs the business and calls the shots, the clan also consists of Pope, the oldest and most dangerous of the Cody boys; Craig, the tough and fearless middle son; and Deran, the troubled, suspicious "baby" of the family.

Spankingly Brilliant series on a Surfing Crime Family
18 October 2016 | by (London,United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This series begins with a sorrowful room where a young man is beside his prone mother. She has taken some intravenous drugs. The young man is Joshua 'J' Cody and he is 17 and seemingly alone. In desperation he calls his estranged grandmother, and she turns up and takes him in.

This is Smurf Cody and she is one mean cookie – a kind of iron fist in a velvet glove type mom. She introduces him to his 'uncles' who are a mixed bag of apparent siblings all with one thing in common. That is their links to Smurf Cody. She is a matriarch of a family that are all basically crooks.

J is unprepared for the 'family' he is about to join and as the series progresses – so does he. This is a spin off from the Australian film of the same name; and that is essential viewing by the way, and you can see both without ruing either in the surprise department.

They have David Michod as executive producer from Australia so there is continuity. This has all the qualities to be a hit in that it is original, extremely well made, more sub plots than you can shake a stick at filmed in sunny California and is highly addictive. I have read that a second series has been commissioned and I am already looking forward to seeing it – brilliant.
