Bucket & Skinner Episode 1
Bucket and Skinner are high school friends who share three things in common: being good friends, being cool, and getting girls. However, Bucket has a crush on his classmate Kelly, and Skinner has a crush on a popular jock named Aloe, who sets out to humiliate Bucket and Skinner every chance he gets. In this episode, we learn how these two best friends solve their problems, as well as how to stay cool in public.
The series progresses and the characters form friendships and rivalries. Bucket, a popular senior, is jealous of Kelly and tries to undermine her attempts to impress her. He also tries to get into Aloe’s room to steal clothes, but ultimately ends up being caught. Aloe and Skinner are also at a high school talent showcase, where Bucket auditions to play the lead role, while Skinner auditions to play the part of a talking trunk. Bucket and Skinner decide that they will play Aloe. However, they realize this will make them appear better than they actually are.
A songwriting contest is being held at Pacific Bluffs. The winner’s song will appear on Sara’s new album. However, Bucket and Skinner accidentally submit Lady Brown Hair, a song about Kelly. Piper has one more plan. The next episode should have a happy end! This episode will give you a better understanding of the characters in this hilarious comedy-drama.
In spite of the negative reviews, the series did have its share of fans. Bucket & Skinner is not only unpopular among children, but also a pathetic attempt by Drake and Josh to imitate Bucket & Skinner. Aloe is a unlikable love interest, and Kelly serves as a token. Finally, the titles of the episodes are unoriginal: they are all “Insert Noun Here.”
Bucket is Skinner’s friend and a freshman at a local high-school. He spends most of his free time surfing and trying to impress Kelly. Aloe dislikes Bucket because she cut him off his surfboard when he was five years old. Three Pieces’ nephew, Bucket, is slightly smarter that Skinner. Unlike Skinner, Bucket is a realistic and laid-back guy.
Bucket’s desire for a romantic relationship is a great opportunity for parents and teens to talk about healthy relationships. Parents can remind Kelly about the rules of family dating as Kelly resists Bucket’s advances. At the same time, the humor in Bucket’s bullying will provide a hilarious perspective on this important issue. Parents can put a positive spin to bullying with the comedy aspect of the series.
Bucket and Skinner reunited for the premiere on December 29, 2011. They then spend a scary night in the haunted house. Bucket discovers that the jealous Aloe behind Bucket’s plan is not the original ghost haunting the house. However, the fear that it is haunted is still haunting the pair. The episode was filmed in Canada and the UK and was released on October 27, 2012.
