After a fun first week of Ballers, I decided to stick around for another episode. And I have to say, I dug this week even more than last. I think the thing that makes this show so fun is that The Rock is absolutely perfect for the role, and you can tell he's having a blast with it. The show knows it isn't too smart and plays to that fact.

So far, I'm really digging the Ricky Jerret storyline and how he is struggling to find his place in a new locker room. I'm buying into everything wrong that's happening to him and the actor's performance. It's probably the best acting that is on this show. But Rob Corddry also shined in his limited but timely comedic performance. The Rock and him share a great back and forth. But I'm seeing what the endgame is for this season and really where the show is heading. I'm also not to fond of the Charles Greane storyline either.

I think if this show continues to not take itself too seriously, I will have fun with it, but I'm seeing a little more gaps than I would like early on, but the show clearly has promise.
