The series focuses on the life of pro skateboarder Ryan Sheckler, the youngest winner of the X-Games at the age of 13 and now focusing on the teenager from age 16-18, as he tries to become champion again.
Unfortunately, things are not as simple for the life of Ryan as his parents Gretchen and Randy have gotten into a divorce which both parents try to be civil but it for Ryan, it has hurt him emotionally.
As he tries to live life with his younger brothers Shane and Kane and his mother/manager Gretchen in surfer town San Clemente, he tries to have a relationship with his father who has found a new girlfriend. Helping Ryan deal with life are his best friends Casey, Tony, Taylor and Mitch. But throughout the series, Ryan struggles with divorce, his mother as his manager, his relationship with his father, his friends and also trying to find a girlfriend, managing multiple businesses and just dealing with his fandom and his "haters" while pursuing his quest to win another X-Games.
"LIFE OF RYAN: THE COMPLETE SERIES" features all three seasons on DVD broken up onto three discs.
1. CHASING CAMBRIA - Ryan likes a girl named Cambria but not sure if she digs him. Both Ryan and his best friend Casey have their first holiday with their parents now divorced.
2. 5TH WHEEL - Ryan spends time with his younger brother Kane.Read more ›
But, as I was about to learn, there was a kid on the skateboarding scene who was making noise and looking to possibly become the next big name in the sport. Ryan Scheckler started skateboarding and winning competitions at a young age. This documentary/reality series sees him going through many changes. These include: working, winning, losing, being injured, getting back on his feet, dealing with his parents' divorce, dating, maintaining a relationship with his brothers, navigating issues with his group of friends, buying his own home, and getting a role in a Disney film...all at the age of 18.
The series does a good job at looking at Ryan's life, past and present, at appropriate times to bring the whole story home. It gives the viewer an entertaining look at the work life and personal life of this young skater. My only criticism of Ryan is that he comes off at a crybaby in alot of the situations and may come off like a brat. I made comments while watching about this, but looking back, I'm sure even he would say now that he was acting immature. Think about it. A kid that is 17 or 18 years old who is dealing with all kinds of unrest in his personal life all while trying to maintain a high-paying skating career and image for his fans and advertisers can probably become overwhelmed. Anyone, regardless of age or pay that has that much on their plate would probably struggle with it. I kind of wish that the series was made now that he's older, but I think that would take away from the growth theme documented in this time period.Read more ›
