Inline Skaters (Rollerbladers) Roll Through Art Museum in ABC Series

roadskater's picture

This Thursday night "The Traveler" rolls out with rollerblading (inline skating) pranks involving three kids skating through an art museum. This reminds me of Bertolucci's The Dreamers, which contains an attempt at breaking the record for running from one end of the Louvre to the other, itself a reference to Godard's Bande à part (as ever, wikipedia.com has much on both films). I understand also that Looney Tunes: Back in Action has a scene where Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck are chased through the Louvre. Anyway, check your local listings for the ABC channel near you to see some skaytn on teevee. Previews I've read indicate the quality of the show to be less than amazing, but how often do we get to see any skating of any inline kind on the tele? So if I get a chance, I'll watch. Thought you'd like to know...

Oh an update. There's a preview at this page: http://abc.go.com/fsp/index.html?channel=Traveler

The skating in the preview starts after eight minutes in. Not much here but they were going down the steps frontwise. I didn't see any grinding of the skatey sort, or any sort. Lots of foleyed breathing. Broadcast television.

Skating in LA Story

Don't forget the scene in LA Story where Steve Martin is roller skating through a museum as "performance art".

Yeah, that was the first

Yeah, that was the first thing I thought of when I saw that article. Actually, I often think of that scene when I skate; I love to glide past a crowded restaurant in the “Egyptian” pose.

Okay, yeah, I’m a dork.
