For those of you who don’t know the storyline, it goes something like this. Skater-dude skates. Skater-dude gets hassled by cops and other skater haters. Skater-dude gets sick of getting hassled. Skater-dude hires body guard. Body guard is big. Body guard is good. Body guard and skater dude become instant buddies. Body guard and skater-dude make a hilarious and engaging odd couple of the 21st Century.
Viewers will rejoin Rob & Big attheir house (AKA:Three Layers of Heaven), with their unusual “family” — Rob, Big, their bulldog Meaty, and their mini-horse Mini, for 15 new episodes.
We can expect to see Three Layers go into lockdown when something unexpected and unidentifiable is floating in the swimming pool; a “super sweet 14″ birthday party for Meaty; a road trip to a horse show for lucky entrant Mini; and Big teaching Rob what it’s like to go through life a big man (Big, at 6’6″, 416 pounds should know all too well).
