In case you didn't know, Rob Dyrdek is a pro skater, and he has a LOT of personality! His last show was more of a reality show, whereas Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory looks more like skateboarding + Willie Wonka's Chocolate Factory with a dash of Jackass. The idea looks like it's Rob, sitting in his office in the middle of a huge concrete warehouse skatepark, dreaming up bizarre stunts and ideas that an unseen army assembles for him to try. Stunts like trying to beat the skateboarding land speed record on a skateboard with the help of Danny Way (Danny Way already holds two world records in skateboarding!). Or wearing stilts and playing one-on-one basketball Lakers' Lamar Odom. If you've seen the commercial, you know there's going to be plenty of skateboarding, and probably lots of bails and whipeouts. Check out the Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory trailer.
I'm guessing the show will take off - Rob Dyrdek is a fun guy to watch. He's got a strange mix of angry little man + gangsta + genuinely great nice guy. And he can skate. Check it out this Sunday, see what you think, and come back here and leave a comment! Or, if you already have an opinion, go for it.
