"Ballers" review by Suzanne 8/9/15
Airs Sundays 10pm on  HBO

I'm very sorry to be so late reviewing this sitcom. I've had a busy summer! This show stars Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) as a retired athlete. It features many retired athletes and shows how they struggle to find new careers after they retire.

The show is a half hour comedy, but personally, I don't find it all that funny. They probably should have made it an hour-long light drama along the lines of "Royal Pains" or some other similar show.

The characters are very interesting and entertaining. If I had time to add another show to my list, I would watch it. If it were really funny, I would find the time to watch it. Check it out and see if you like it. I think anyone who follows sports would like it more than I do. But it's not nearly as funny as "Arli$$."


Legends Don't Retire. They Reinvent.

'Ballers' is a new half-hour comedy series starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. The first season begins its 10-episode run on June 21, 2015 at 10 pm.
