I've been watching the show, but not really loving it to be honest. Just stumbled across Survivor's Remorse, which actually IS the sports version of Entourage and is way better than Ballers. I thought I'd just post it here because you'd be likely to enjoy it as well.
Thanks for this suggestion, definitely seems like my type of show. I love Ballers as well though.

Where do you watch this show?

Torrent, Foxtel, Stan or Netflix?

Really enjoying this season - better plotlines. And still the little things like the sauna scene at the start of last weeks ep!

What do you mean finally, it's only 2 seasons old haha.

I'm about 6 eps behind now so I'll finally be able to binge this!

Really enjoyed this season more than the last (which felt like it was trying a little too hard).

It should only get better too. A couple of Patriots wide receivers in that finale was a nice touch.

Have watched 2 episodes and when it first came out was really interested. Its not in my Foxtel Pack and I wont be spending extra money to get it. So maybe someone could PM me a link to somewhere.

Just on Dwayne and his future. I think he wants to get away from full action movies and this is a good preview tape for people to see him in something different. For those who read as well there is a series by Harlan Coben about an old BasketBall star , Myron Bolitar, who suffers a career ending injury who becomes a player agent for many people. In the day to day grind of being an agent he finds himself caught up in things such as trying to keep the Mafia off a players back or another player getting dudded by family members and bikies. I think ( even though I read the character as white) someone like DJ could do this as well.

I think 30min episodes are perfect. Not too long and not too short. Plus, this is the length of episodes you are going to get with HBO. It's this or a full 1hr show.

It suffers a bit from the Entourage syndrome. Its all flash and consumer porn but still has some funny moments that makes you want to watch.

Of course this show has much better actors and a way better setting so its more enjoyable.
