Best show on TV
16 March 2005 | by See all my reviews

I have to say I wasn't originally going to watch the show, but my friend came over the day the series premiered so I was forced into it. I'd have to say though it is definitely a must see.

Its the only show during the week I block out time for. I've seen all 9 episodes the day they aired. Way better than the last ESPN drama Playmakers.

It's like a weekly soap opera. It involves way more than just poker. Can't wait until it comes out on DVD. Before season two starts I'd recommend watching the re-runs of episode one and getting the story down before the 2nd season starts. Watch them in order or you'll get lost.
