A satirical, slightly subversive, and definitely tongue-in-cheek take on Christian morality plays aimed at teenagers. Two friends, Brandon and Gary, dole out advice to their classmates about issues of the day. Gary often finds himself tempted by the very things he advises against. Brandon, meanwhile, has a credibility gap due to the fact that he's perpetually grounded for perfectly reasonable, honest mistakes that often involve a hazmat team. Together, though, these two ordinary, witty, and often imperfect teens try to make the world better for their friends.
