TV Show Review: Zeke and Luther

The two 8-year-olds watching Zeke and Luther with me wandered out of the room almost before the credits ended. With all the clueless good cheer of Bill and Ted but, unfortunately, none of the humor, Zeke and Luther, two skateboarding buddies who long to go pro, endure a series of supposedly comic misadventures while generally screwing up any opportunity. When Zeke gets a toe stuck in a bathtub faucet while reading a sign that says “Do Not Stick Toe in Faucet,” it captures the series in a nutshell and possibly explains why Disney has relegated it to Disney XD. I could go on to explain how he valiantly attempts the big jump with his toe still in the faucet while Luther is incapacitated from a video-gaming injury, but you’d be bored. I was. The 8-year-olds were happy—I found them in the next room, laughing at a rerun of Tom and Jerry.
