Catch the Fever
31 August 2003 | by videoboy1See all my reviews

So far this show looks very promising. I really dig the way the show is shot and edited. even if you are not a football fan you still might get something out of this orginal series. the acting is great and so are the depth of each character shown so far on the show. If you have seen it tell others. No one will be let down by this gem of a show.
