I wonder if he's repeating the lyrics "this will all blow over in time".

Did you guys hear one of the judges say "today was a big disappointment"

What do you expect? They were stuck at a skate park!

Very subtle product placement from MD.  Wish there would've been more dickheadishness but that one Rodney quip has me excited for next week. 

And before the usual 30 people say how whack this episode was.. You're all hooked on it so clearly Klein did a good job.  Any viewer or participant of this Mountain Dew commercial should know better to expect some boring, unscripted, core skateboarding program.  It's supposed to be this stupid because they want everyone to watch it, not just old slap dudes wanting to see pure street skating.

I bet the whole "skaters get fed up and abandon contest" was part of the plan too.  With that said, I'm glad to enjoy this entertainment for what it's worth.

The worse the car wreck, the slower the rubberneckers drive by it in hopes of seeing something they'll probably regret immediately after.

Wackness aside, this one had skating and while it wasn't the most exciting shit ever, barrel jumping is actually really crazy.  My friends and I tried it years ago after seeing all that shit Alva did.  It's the weirdest feeling of knowing you should be able to do something, but feeling incredibly sketchy the whole time.  Just like those kids said- just a few is really hard.

Ok, done being positive.   ;)

ah but you forgot the cardinal rule. you must learn how to market yourself first. then and only then, you can finally begin to skate down your path to greatness.

The taildrop, noseblunt pull in and frontside pivot were all sick.  At the beginning of the series I thought that dude was just going to be a shitty version of Chris Milic but apparently not.

We're laughing at him, not with him. If you think the only people who think watching coloring contests are stupid know how to kickflip you are a moron. This thing is a car wreck and its fun to laugh at what a stupid asshole Klein is, no more, no less. If you want to say he's a genius because he exploited kids and ruined his reputation for some minor entertainment, fine, but there are less socially and personally damaging ways to do that. He still failed.

Oh, and look at one of the first pages, I hella called barrel jumping elimination. HELLA called it.

I hope it was worth it for Klein since the whole skate community is laughing right at him.

Lurker Lou is the truth in my book.... 100% NY OG on the real...

Dude's cool, but he's from New England, so "100% NY OG on the real" is factually inaccurate.

Also, that Finucan kid should rethink the spliffs if he's like 20 years old and doesn't know what a dumpling is. I mean, Jesus Christ, what the fuck?

Obviously, I'm a few episodes behind.

This contest is fucked but I'm not going to lie, the barrel jumping was kinda crazy. That seems super sketchy.

You guys are being way to harsh on Mikey. The 5-0 thing was lame for sure, but he isn't really focusing on the hood thing that much, he mentioned it at the beginning, and he mentioned it once with the board thing. He could be throwing it in people's faces and talking about how he does everything a certain way because of where he's from and this and that (and plenty of people do), but he really doesn't.
And talk shit on his video all you want, he's done some sick shit so far in the contest, his noseblunt on those banks, the noseslide down the sketchy indoor set rail, the gap to 5-0 actually was really gnarly, albeit kind of a biter move. It's not like he's terry Kennedy who was really terrible for the first 5 or so years of his career but got by on his image.

I came on to this thread though to refute the argument that it can only get worse from the coloring contest. That shit was boring, useless, and got in the way of skating. If the later challenges get worse than this they will probably be more offensive, and will have more of a trainwreck feel to them.

Also, anybody think these guys are probably less boring than they are shown to be, but that everybody becomes boring when forced to answer boring and stupid questions.

There's something weird goin' on in the drawing challenge. Obviously none of the judges have art history degrees, but Steve Rod has worked in advertising and 5Boro is always looking good, Lou puts paint on shoes and walks on things, you know he's up in dem art shows, look at that beard...Can't speak for Rodney's aesthetic sensibilities but he sometimes matches his hat and shoes which should be an automatic DQ...

Bottom line: All of that artwork was fucking unbelievably terrible and Mikey's was amongst the worst. He is clearly, whether on his own or at the behest of the producer, emphasizing the "hood-ness" that he embodies, which is a cheap trick at best. "Cops chasing people..." Cool, dude. Good job. The concept of the challenge is dumb as fuck anyway and it should not have been conducted in the first place, but shit, man, kids can't even write their own names legibly in 2011?

The fact that you are trying to engage with me on the quality of the drawings in the contest is fucking pathetic. Who gives a shit whose drawing was the best? The kid mentions it in his intro video, then drew a picture of the corner he lived on, and that's it over like 5 episodes, meaning he has mentioned it less than once per episode, whoa man, he's milking it  ::)
 Whose drawing was the best? I could give a shit. That's exactly why that challenge was stupid. It was boring to watch and who gives a fuck who won? It's not like I was thinking "John's graphic is the best! He BETTER win!!!" and then was heartbroken to see some far worse graphic win. I was just pissed because I already lost for sitting through the episode.
