I like to watch series and the latest I started watching is Last Chance U (Netflix). I'm only two episodes in and love it already.
It's a documentary about an American Football team from a university in the middle of nowhere with an extraordinary record of accomplishments.
This place is for most players, as the title implies, the last chance to make it to the big leagues. And a lot of them did make it in the past.
There are enough shots of the games itself for the sports enthousiast, but mixed with a personal/emotional angle of what the individual players and the staff are going through.
It reminded me a bit of that other great movie: Remember the titans.
If you understand Dutch, read the article of Gumstarr, who's way better at writing reviews of series.
