MY THOUGHTS

I had never heard of this show up until just a few weeks ago but it sounded interesting so I decided to give it a shot. 

If this show was on tv here I don't think I would have watched it. Why? because it isn't the kind of show I watch but I am glad I got the dvd of this because it is funny and entertaining.   
If you are looking for a funny and entertaining show that has a bit of a shock factor then I do highly recommend this show. 

I give this 3 out of 5.

Ballers The Complete Third Season #Review


The product(s) featured in this review were provided free of cost to me by the manufacturer or representing PR agency for the sole purpose of product testing. Opinions expressed are my own and are NOT influenced by monetary compensation.

Delve deeper into the extravagant, high-stakes, big-money world of football when Season 3 of Ballers® comes to Blu-ray™ and DVD on April 3, 2018! From the producers who brought you Entourage, catch-up with Dwayne Johnson as retired football superstar Spencer Strasmore alongside an endearing assortment of colleagues, rivals, and pro-football clients in this HBO® hit comedy – which is also available now for Digital Download.

This season, Spencer, along with longtime colleague Joe Krutel (Rob Corddry), return with a new outlook and fresh goals, hoping to forge bonds with new players across the country while improving his relationships with existing clients. In an ever-changing business where the shelf life for stardom and multi-million-dollar contracts are short, Spencer is intent on proving that the key to successful sports management isn't just about making money and having fun – it's about delivering on the promises you make. John David Washington, Donovan Carter, and Omar Miller also return this season, with guest appearances by sports stars Stephen Curry and Eddie George.

MY THOUGHTS

I admit that I had never seen an episode of Ballers before I watched the first episode of season 3 just a few days ago.  I do like Dwayne Johnson so I wanted to give this show a try.

Unfortunately, I didn't like this show. The acting was ok but it just wasn't for me. It isn't a show that kept me interested. I know some of you like this show or would like this show but I just didn't like it.

I am giving this 2 out of 5.
