Spoilers for 'Shaq Life' Episode 6 'Shaq vs Europe' Part 2

Shaq's a quick learner and an astute observer— two qualities that heavily contributed to his success during his NBA days.

Now, staring at a tough challenge while trying to fulfill his goal of being the best base DJ ever, he attempts to take control of the situation and put his team back on track as they embark on the second leg of their European DJ tour in 'Shaq vs Europe' Part 2. 

The star, after having a rather forgettable outing, realizes that he needs to bring his A-game and also sort out the internal bickering between the managers. He first sorts things out with DJ and producer Brian Bayati and then the rest of the business team.

Brian goes back to prepping a proper set for Shaq ahead of his performances in Ibiza and Belgium. Those who caught the second part know by now that DJ Diesel was a grand success in the rest of the arenas.

The two-part episode is more about Shaq's outlook toward life and the way he approaches and does things. He's known to be a big man with a big heart and this episode, in particular, shows Shaq as a man who's much more human.

He makes mistakes, but he learns from it— in double-quick time. With six episodes in, 'Shaq Life' has given a glimpse of some of Shaquille Rashaun "Shaq" O'Neal's biggest challenges starting off with a mission to put Papa John's Pizza back on top, make it big in the UFC and his DJ aspirations. 

The morale-boosting performances in Europe mean Shaq is now ready for the Lollapalooza challenge.  'Shaq vs Europe' Part 2 also showcases the generous side of the gentle giant as he is seen gifting two computers to needy kids and he has his reasons.

Shaq's childhood, as he recollects, was a tough one and he wants to help other kids as much as he can so they wouldn't go through the same trouble and hurdles he did. Barring the one storyline that sees Shaq resolve internal issues, the rest of the episode focuses on his DJ career steadily pushing further making it an enjoyable watch. 

'Shaq Life' airs on Thursdays at 9 pm ET on TNT.
