Comedy about neighborhood skateboarders
Zeke and Luther is a show about two older teens who encounter sometimes odd neighborhood problems that they navigate with unexpected laugh-a- minute punchlines and visual comedy executed perfectly by this well-cast group of young, talented actors. It stars Hutch Dano, Adam Hicks, Daniel Curtis Lee, and Ryan Newman. The actors are actual skateboarders which adds a nice fluidity to the scenes. It's obvious that the episodes are not rushed. Whereas Drake and Josh comes off like a school play.
This show is more than one step up from the old show 'Drake and Josh'. A refreshing difference is that 'Zeke and Luther' parents are never seen or heard and are rarely mentioned (slow butter!). It's refreshing to stay in just the one mindset of the kids. Extremely well cast and written, it's popular with parents too. I'm delighted that this show was picked up for a third season. Ooh Watch Out! (Slap)
