Storyline

"Last Chance U" follows a group of young men training to become the future stars of the NFL. Based at East Mississippi Community College (EMCC), "Last Chance U" takes us on a journey to understand the real men of the gridiron at one of the most successful, but least known athletic programs. Each player has incredible talent and drive to be the best, but each face their own unique struggles both on and off the field. As their season takes an unexpected turn, the methods of this unconventional team are deeply called into question. With much to lose, they are constantly reminded of the stakes. Written by Netflix

Season 3
26 July 2018 | by dansviewSee all my reviews

This one was way better than the other two seasons. That's because the coach had heart and made some interesting and thoughtful statements. He swears just as much as the guy from the other seasons, but he has a sympathetic personal back story, he's younger, and he's quite intelligent. One thing that strikes me as odd is how locals take pride in the team, when none of the players or the coach are from the town, or even from the state. Essentially they are just a bunch of guys renting the field in town, with little or no interest in the town or the school or classes. Yet the locals refer to them as "we." That's the irony of college and pro sports fan culture. The lady English teacher seems nice, but she doesn't have anything interesting to say, and seems kind of obsessed with ethnic pride. I'm not sure what being the English teacher has to do with counseling these knuckleheads anyways, and surely teaching them ethnic pride is not in her job description. But she tries. Look, she did say one good thing, if not grammatically correct. Which is ironic since she is the English teacher. "Everybody does not make it to the NFL." It would have been better to day, "Not everyone makes it." Anyways, these kids are lazy and stupid. Some of it is the fault of circumstance and some of it is their own fault. But I don't think many will make it to the big league. Some may play in Canada or Europe. But they are entitled dopes either way and that's a darn shame.
