Footballers' Wives clearly tops over Footballers' Wives, Overtime
30 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Footballers' Wives clearly tops over Footballers' Wives, Overtime. The series that captured the audience and kept it was clearly the series that included the Tanya and Jason Turner characters and the entire ensemble during that period which includes the actors as well as the directors. They were all bigger than life. Immediately with the onset of Footballers's Wives, Overtime, something was lost. It just became substandard when compared with the original series. It was predictable and lost it's special edge that kept it exciting but quality. Lost a desire to watch it after the first season of Overtime. Tried, but the spark is not there.
