Film flames, episode episodes. Post lifetime is 1 year.

I enjoyed it. Definitely feels like a new Entourage, especially with the opening credits being so similar.

Because it's the print we deserve, but not the one we need right now. So we'll hunt it.

Let's not start sucking each other's dicks quite yet.

Meh, so far. After True Detective, just a bridge to The Brink and John Oliver.

Those pics that Reggie took are going to get leaked for sure.

I'm worried that this show is going to devolve into simply being Entourage with football players. I saw a spark of hope when Rock's character goes to the ATM and is totally broke. I was like, oh they are going to buck the trend and put the characters into desperate, real-life situations. But hey, by episode 3 they are tossing wildly expensive parties and everyone seems A-OK. Plus only 3 episodes in and it's already piled on TONS of sports cliches.

Seeing Rod Cordory going buck wild was pretty entertaining, but man this show better toss some curve balls and stay grounded otherwise it's not gonna be long for this world. We don't need another show where all the beautiful rich people end up totally fine by the end of each season. Lets see some actual character development for once.

Peter Berg is an ace at this with Friday Night lights. He's a producer (and part of the cast) of this show so I have hope that this show can find a pulse and show some legit character development.

I can't wait until they dig into the minutiae of financial advising.

My thoughts are added blackmail against the Rock. His getting Spencer to push him and most likely fake an injury won't be enough, so he will threaten to release the photos for a majority of Spencer's cut/pay. BUT, I highly doubt he'd be the only one taking pics in the real world and it really doesn't matter cause he would fail the drug test.
