After sitting through 2 episodes, I could already be certain that the story is poor, the script is badly written, the acting is dreadful (overreactions, yellingmonotone instead of natural speaking, etc). Most of the jokes and gags are fine, but are completely spoiled by the novice actors' inability to act naturally, and are often dragged out too long or are placed strangely. Everything seems out of place and off- from the outfits (specifically Angie's) to the effects. Plot lines are marred by inconsistency, constant wandering-off and completely cliché andor predictable endings. Special effects are typically needlessly flamboyant and distracting.

The worst part is, Cartoon Network stubbornly continues to market this show as "popular" and "successful". You can expect cheesy, amateurish work from this show.
