Another good HBO show. It's to True Detective what Silicon Valley was to Game of Thrones. The Rock is a retired football player in Miami who's breaking into the agent/money management biz. I don't even like football but I enjoyed it a lot. Rock is a very good actor in the right role, and it's good to see him in a serious role instead of jumping from franchise to franchise in braindead roles like GI Joe and Fast and Furious. LOTS of hot women too.

The first episode was better than I was expecting - I'll keep watching.

I heard someone say that taking a TV role was a step back for an ascending movie star, but I think that's bullocks.  The right vehicle can really capture hearts & minds like the flame of Pytar.  I'll be watching this.

I don't think he's very good in any role. Looks like lukewarm garbage

You mean what characters? All of the story lines are entertaining, but there really aren't any strong, central female characters. It's a show mostly about guys.

It's an interesting show, to be certain. Rocky tends to pick shit movies a lot, but he's usually a solid bet when he's given anything even halfway competently written, and this show does it.

This show is what Entourage would have been if Entourage was good.

1st season was sharp as can be; I do wonder where season 2 can go, hoping for more serious antagonists.

The football players are the antagonists... antagonists to good business and civility.
