Audience Reviews for Ballers: Season 1

  • May 08, 2021
    Very innovative idea, to mix reality with fiction... I like it, but some of the actors overact.
  • Mar 25, 2021
    Great series, It contains a lot of humor and it is great to see how Spencer and Joe manage to sign the different players. They go to great lengths to get Vernon's deal with the Cowboys. The parties they have are great, displaying gorgeous cars, yachts and girls ;) All with all, it is in my opinion worth 10/10. Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson plays his role of Spencer Strasmore absolutely great and it is a pleasure to see him act in this role.

    I loved this season. The best thing about this show was the miami setting, John David Washington, Dwayne Johnson & Rob Corddry
  • Dec 08, 2020
    This is the kind of show that is solid in every aspects. Have you seen Dwayne Johnson showcasing his talent as a financial planner? If not, make sure not to skip this show. His chemistry with Rob Corddry is interesting too, what a duo | Follow us at @uncle.review

    Finished with the last season of ballers and I wish it wasn't the end. This was an honest to god fine show with great performances all round. Hope there'll be an encore someday.
  • Oct 03, 2018
    Ballers is a very entertaining show about a couple of financial managers with athletes as clients. It's not super funny, it's not super serious, and honestly there isn't a whole lot of drama, so I'm not sure what to really classify it as...but it's good. It's a show that you can watch no matter what mood you're in (and you don't have to be a fan of sports to like it), and it's a very easy watch given that the episodes are only 30 minutes each. Dwayne Johnson is charismatic as always and really the entire cast is likable. Don't go in expecting to be blown away, and you'll probably find yourself to be pleasantly surprised.

    This show reinforces sexist and racist stereotypes.
  • Apr 15, 2018
    Love it! Amazing cast!!
  • Feb 15, 2018
    This show is one of the worst I have ever watched. I think the combination of awful writing and poor acting (aside from Johnson) makes it so painful to watch
  • Oct 24, 2017
    An original of it's own.
