In the latest installment of "What to Watch", IMDb's TV Editor Melanie McFarland chats with "Mad Men" stars Jon Hamm, January Jones, John Slattery, and series creator Matthew Weiner about the drama's extraordinary legacy, as AMC prepares to air its final seven episodes.
"SK8" often uses a unique visual style that effectively conveys a spirit of youth and a sense of motion.
The plots (which include running out of free areas to skate, the ups and downs of shop business, projects centered around the activity, etc.) are usually written in an entertaining enough fashion, with humorous, catchy dialogue that tends to avoid the overly obnoxious route.
Plot isn't the only focus of course. The way the issues at hand affect friendships and personal character is also covered, with subtle (which are often the best kind) hints of romance possibly thrown in as well.
Overall, "SK8" doesn't try to be anything but a somewhat different, entertaining kind of show. That's what it is. No more--and no less.
