I want to see more stories like this series
26 July 2017 | by ersbelSee all my reviews

The quality is mediocre. The story telling is the vulgar myth building and even if it is a very usual way of telling stories, the creators do not excel at it.

Overall it's trivia plus misunderstandings from people with limited education. Take the second episode. One man qualified in making pretty drawings and very qualified shoe makers do some shoes. They are pretty. They are comfortable. That is undeniable. But step any way further away and one steps into superstitious crap. There are no doctors in the team, no physicists, no biologists. Because the performance increase comes from the comfort and not from any performance babble. And just because a famous ball player wore these shoes and got paid a huge amount of money, that does not mean Regular Joe won't sprain an ankle in the exact same pretty shoe. The ball player might have an excellent game bare footed, because he is the blonde with big boobs using a power drill in the advert.

Short: nice to hear those people talk, even if they have no idea what they are talking about.
