My boss Got Me Hooked On Bucket & Skinner's Epic Adventure and I'm 58 years old!!!
Last Fall,one of the stunt coordinators I work with(D'Janine King-Lasky) told me about Bucket & Skinner, but I thought it sounded like just another "typical" Nickelodeon show! Several of our adult crew members and some of our teen and young adult actors became fans of the Bucket & Skinner show right away and went to the filming of several episodes over the past few months. They all enjoyed the gymnastic stunts and kept saying how it reminded them of our crazy surf themed film with comical beach stunts,sight gags,acrobatics,etc. I became a little curious myself because I was a gymnast years ago prior to getting into the stunt business, then more recently, a stunt coach and prop master. The more our film crew talked about the show, the more I was learning(without them knowing it)I found out that my supervisor, D'Janine had met Tom (the executive producer) 27 years ago and it also turns out that Ashley Argota was a former gymnastics student of hers (she taught Ashley cartwheels years ago, ironically, Ashley did cartwheels at the very shoot that her former coach (D'Janine)attended, how's that for coincidences?) I have to admit,at first I became more curious about all the surf themed stunts, props and set lighting, than about the show's content. Finally,the many co-incidents and parallels(such as the exact same serving trays at Taco,Taco,Taco as we had in our film)compelled me to finally watch the crew's copy of Bucket & Skinner(4 episodes). I watched all 4 episodes back-to-back and I was actually quite impressed to say the least! I don't normally watch Nickelodeon shows, but this show has gotten my attention! I will be watching Bucket & Skinner from here on out and now, I also watch the show for content! I could possibly be one of your oldest fans! Good show!Keep up the gymnastics and such(tell your writers that THIS kinda stuff is always a hit, even with us older stunt guys!)
