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.

Loved it
10 August 2016 | by Harley DavisSee all my reviews

When I watch TV, I just look to be entertained, hopefully with engrossing story lines that are well acted and well produced. I do not need moralistic platitudes shoved down my throat, just entertain me. I do not need to see an "Oscar" worthy TV show. Just entertain me for an hour and help me relieve the stress factors of everyday life and make me forget for an hour that I have to get that laundry done or pack that lunch or write those checks. "Calgon, take me away." This show delivers. To all the people comparing it to the movie, I've seen the movie too. It was definitely awesome. So is this show. Apples and Oranges.
