Salute Your Shorts in the 1990s to Ned's Declassified School Survival Guide in the 2000s to the contemporary Henry Danger.
Max & Shred, which premiered a few days ago, is a reprise of Drake and Josh, which in turn was a reprise of The Odd Couple: two guys with opposing personalities are forced to live together.
Here it's celebrity snowboarder Max (Jonny Gray, right), cool, athletic, a teen operator in the mold of Drake, who moves to Blizzard Springs, Colorado to train for a snowboarding event, and must room with science nerd Shred (Jake Goodman, left), Josh without the extra weight.
There's also a mad scientist girl-next-door who climbs in through the window, a sister who is older and popular, a couple of parents, and the usual friends, jocks, bullies, and science nerds at school.
Max and Shred have the same physicality as Drake and Josh -- their hands are all over each other all the time. And Shred draws has a pleasant non-gendered transgression. But the show seems to be trying to avoid the gay-subtext-filled Drake and Josh. Their hetero-mania is established through drools and double-takes, and in the second episode, they both fall in love with the same girl.
