Epicly Later’d is a great show and a huge asset to the VBS series. Because of its highly personal and substantially interesting subject matter, anyone who has ever picked up a skateboard and took it seriously can relate directly to every single skater featured.
This episode featuring Mike Carroll is goes beyond the subject of skateboarding. In what is probably the most intense and most personal episode of Epicly Later’d to date, this show has hit a new level of documentary storytelling that the show has never seen before. Watching some of this footage causes me to feel ill and almost guilty for watching something so personal.
And this episode says a lot about how skateboarding can literally save a life from entering complete destruction. About how it’s an escape for thousands of kids who have nowhere else to turn, but to the camaraderie with friends that comes with the lifestyle by which they become the only family a skater can have. Can relate to this one big time. Great episode.
