Rock Bottom
12 August 2015 | by ThomasDrufkeSee all my reviews

We have reached a point in this show where I am now looking forward every week to each episode. I believe this is one of the better shows in presenting both comedy and drama and this week was no different. You have The Rock singing Taylor Swift in a car to him digging deep in his emotions to apologize to a woman of his past. It was another great example of The Rock displaying is immense amount of charisma he has the ability to turn on.

Spencer was cleared of his CT scan which was a step forward for him personally but it's not the end of his fight just yet. Now he needs to conquer his psychological issues as he still struggles with his post-NFL career. Speaking of which, Spencer and Joe are nearly fired after the pictures from the party hit the big guys upstairs at Anderson Financial. I figured, and the preview suggested, that the two may start their own business. With Victor Cruz apparently signing on, they may be able to start it. I haven't really been impressed with anything Cruz has done on the show especially because that storyline seemed a little far-fetched.

Charles Greene and Ricky shared similar arcs this week as they further their quest in becoming 'better men'. With two episodes left it's tough to tell where exactly those arcs end up but I'm intrigued nonetheless. Hopefully the show stays consistent.

+Rock shows both sides

+Starting their own company

-Cruz side story far fetched

7.7/10
