Caught up. Don't mind the season so far. Really, really dislike Joe though. Someone needs to punch him in the head.

Anyone still watching this?

Wtf has happened with Anderson? They've made him into an absolute mess. Totally different character to the hard ass he was in the first couple of seasons.

Yeah still on it.
Latest episode was okay i guess.

Peter Bergs rampage when he got sacked was gold
Haha yeah, he was great. Kind of hope he hangs around. I'm a bit pi**ed off they've made me dislike Dule Hill. Charles is also giving me the s**ts.

Still maintain that these episodes need to be at least 10 mins longer.

Not loving how this season is going, truth be told. Still tuning in but not loving it as much as I'd hoped.

Candace is ******* annoying.

They've kind of gone away from what made it successful.

The player management side of things was the good thing. Now they've got rid of that, we get to see the rich owners be smug pricks. Yaaaaaaaaaay.

There's just other things that won't/don't work either. Charles quitting Miami to go work in another organisation. Everything seems to be based out of Miami (or Oakland) this season. Why not keep him in Miami? I know Ricky plays out of New England but he's still living in Miami.

Also hope Dule Hill hangs around. Really liked his character. Would somehow love Charles to end up working under him again.

100% agree, the player management stuff was interesting, allowed for a bunch of cool cameos and gave everyone a look into the world of high performance sports and the money the deal with and the buddy comedy between Dwayne and Rob Cordry. Its just not fun anymore and it was never much more than a fun show set in the sports world, a bit like entourage for jocks.

My problem is at least in Entourage they ended every season winning, this seems like Spencer never gets a win he's always up against it and it's just not that entertaining seeing him get s**t on every season.

Binged the season over the past 5 days. Shorter eps work well in that regard.

Had some tough moments for Soencer, questioning his ethics, integrity etc.

I liked it and look forward to the expansion.

I put that down to Julian.

I'll still tune in next season but I'm not expecting much at all. Bit disappointed with how it's all turned out.

I don't really understand why they did the 'keep the Raiders in Oakland' story arc. It's the first thing that doesn't really match reality at the moment.

Bit late on season 3, started last night.... um can someone tell me why Spencer is back working in the office with no problems and his deal to go partners with Anderson went through? Wasn't he de-registered at the end of season 2?

Watch the rest of the season, it goes through a full arc where he is doing something completely different.

Loved the first episode just downloaded the second one.

Thought season 3 dragged a bit, was only a matter of time before they moved to LA though purely to make it easier for the rock to film

Finished the first ep of season 4 wondering whether it had much more in it, liked the second ep much more.
