Amazing actors and actresses, story and directing.
12 September 2017 | by mpcs-69361See all my reviews

Just for record I'm 33yo male lifelong fan of cinema, to name a few I've watched several hundred times:

Original SNL, Indiana Jones, Beverly Hills Cop, Predators, Aliens, Simpsons, Seinfeld, Futurama, Family Guy, Cowboy Bebop, My Name is Earl, Breaking Bad, BCS, Rick & Morty, Aqua Teen Hunger Force, South Park, DBZ, Marvel series, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek (Enterprise, DS9, Voyager and all movies), Deadwood, Firefly, Flight of the Concords, Frasier... and many more I'm sure most of you know as well.

I just found Ballers a few weeks ago and I literally just finished binge-watching it up to current, and I'm already foaming at the mouth waiting for more. I really hope they make this 10 seasons or more. The cast, the writers, the directing: it can't be any better, I love this show! It's not often a show really makes me LOL.

I'm not about to give any spoilers, but the best I can describe it is a realistic comedy / drama, and that's a rare thing!

Honestly, I would subscribe to HBO specifically for this one show, it's that good, and that's saying something. If you're a fan of Dwayne The Rock Johnson and Rob Cordroy like I am, you'll love it. I'm still waiting for Dwayne to do his patented eyebrow move :)

I was hooked after the first episode. If you haven't seen it, give it a try, even if you're not a big football fan, honestly I'm not and I still love this show. This opinion comes from a educated fan of cinema, I hope this inspires someone to try Ballers out, you won't be sorry.
