Iíve watched two episodes. The visuals are very good, the forced moments of supposedly candid conversations are cringe worthy. Like when out of the blue Jordan calls JT to discuss his best man speech when both are being filmed, ugh.
Iíll watch all eight episodes and cancel my Netflix, nothing on there I canít live without and so many let downs.
This confirms it, give me a split of HBO Max 11 months Netflix 1 month.
Before you quit Netflix, I recommend the new Bill Russell documentary. Opinions will differ, but I consider Bill Russell to be the greatest American sportsman of my lifetime.
Just finished the Russell documentary and really enjoyed it, especially for a guy on the other side of that rivalry with the Lakers as a kid. I despised all things Celtics, but you are right, much of it I already knew, but BR seems like a good dude overall.
As an aside, I am one of those DTS success stories. I never watched F1 (or very little) someone told me during the pandemic when I was searching for something to binge "you should check out Drive to Survive I think you would like it!" And I did. I am hooked, F-1 is probably now my favorite (or 2nd) sport to watch. I look forward to it probably as much or more than anything except maybe MN Vikings games. I do agree now that I watch every F1 race live and even practice and qualifying days, I now find DTS to have lost its luster. I know what is going to happen in every race.
I literally dont watch much PGA Tour golf anymore since most of my favorite player left and I was growing weary of PGA Tour before that anyway. I am stoked for the majors still, but I used to never miss a Bay Hill or a Honda, but not anymore. I dont miss it, and I am playing golf more than ever, just not watching it as much.
I think both of these documentaries are meant to bring new eyes to a sport, and maybe slightly entertain the fringe kook fans like us as well.
