You may notice, that this is one of the first times we here at Bubbleblabber have done a DVD review and we would definitely like to get your feedback. Starting pretty much today, anytime a prime time animated series comes out with a new release, expect to see a review about the season in retrospect in about 48-hours from the release as we feel that the actual episodes of the show should be the bread and butter of picking up a the new DVD besides just the special features. And as luck would have it, we are reviewing a show that was one of our FIRST stories, and have followed from its premier until the season finale…that being, GOOD VIBES!
From a personal standpoint, if I had to pick an animated character that I probably have the most in common with it might be Mondo from Good Vibes. A big guy from New Jersey raised by a single mom now living close to a beach(I’m writing this article on a beach right now, its warm out!) and as such I might be a tad biased towards him. But, with all the reviews that have written I feel we’ve been pretty honest with how the show was and despite the timeline being somewhat inconsistent, overall Good Vibes was the best new long-form animated show of the year and for that alone I recommend you picking up this 2 disc DVD.
For those who don’t know Good Vibes, the series follows a transplanted Jersey kid named Mondo and his best friend Woodie, as they live their teen-angst filled lives in a fictional Southern California beach town where they chase bikini-clad girls, attend crazy parties, and mingle with all the wacky locals. The show stars Josh Gad(The Book of Mormon), who stars as the lovable Mondo, Adam Brody (The OC) as surfer icon Woodie, the super-hot Debi Mazar plays Mondo’s single-mother Babs, and of course Danny McBride(Eastbound and Down) as Ms. Teets, the Yokozuna(WWE) inspired teacher for Mondo and Woodie.
And to better help you make your decision, here is a list of every episode of Good Vibes and corresponding links to reviews, with some of my personal favorite episodes being “Red Tuxedo“, “Pilot“, and “Floatopia” but really you won’t be disappointed when you pick this up and judge for yourself as I’m sure by the time you are through watching it, you will be right back here emailing me about when Season 2 starts!
