VIDEO & AUDIO: What I enjoy about "LIFE OF RYAN" are the various shots of San Clemente, outdoors, sunshine and it really helps the picture quality.
Ryan feels he can't give his girlfriend the time because of his career and feels he needs to breakup with her. With many reality TV series, when indoor scenes are captured, the amount of noise is just enormous.
So, it was pretty cool to watch the series and notice how cool and vibrant the colors are and overall, looked good.
"LIFE OF RYAN" is an MTV series created by Joey Carbone (Carbone Entertainment) which the first two seasons aired on MTV and the third season is featured on this complete series on DVD.
The series focuses on the life of pro skateboarder Ryan Sheckler, the youngest winner of the X-Games at the age of 13 and now focusing on the teenager from age 16-18, as he tries to become champion again.
Unfortunately, things are not as simple for the life of Ryan as his parents Gretchen and Randy have gotten into a divorce which both parents try to be civil but it for Ryan, it has hurt him emotionally.
