Critic Reviews for Ballers Season 2

Whether it be a rival player on the field, or a medical issue, or a friendship in trouble - they put ego and drama and all other issues aside, and they handle it. And that's the real definition of baller-dom we come to, with this season finale.

I can't imagine how this could be a must-watch show given everything else on the air, but - as mentioned - Johnson is a hugely enjoyable commodity.

May 30, 2018 | Rating: 6.8/10 | Full Review…

Ballers Season Two has given audiences a consistently enjoyable, yet forgettable thirty-minute block, carried mostly by the charismatic presence of Dwayne Johnson.

You expect something more antic. John David Washington, Denzel's son, is notable as a talented wide receiver whose off-season behavior has him searching for a team. After that it's hazy.

Make no mistake, this is Johnson's baby. With that all-glowing smile, he brings his A-game to "Ballers" while always managing to look good in a suit. Heck, he even gets off a few playful shots.

At the center of it all, of course, is Johnson, transplanting his movie-star charisma to the small screen, while proving himself a more and more adept dramatic performer.

Think of Ballers as a .500 team in TV's comedy standings, which doesn't mean it's a bad show. To the contrary, what's frustrating is how it seems just a new player or two away from a winning record.

Jul 12, 2016 | Full Review…

Ballers [is] the completely unfunny saga about a sports agent played by Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, where seeing NFL stars we're supposed to recognize is meant to be enough of a thrill.

Jul 19, 2016 | Full Review…

There is still more backstory to explain the bad blood between Andre and Spencer that the season will likely slowly reveal, but so far, the most compelling aspect of their rivalry is the notion that Spencer's real problems might be with himself.

Audience Reviews for Ballers: Season 2

  • Oct 10, 2018
    Season two of Ballers continues to build on the character relationships, business deals, and drama that was introduced in the first season, while also providing the viewer with some great humor. It is arguably better than its predecessor, which is rare in television.

    Hit or miss each episode.

    People are on here saying its consistently funny and awesome to watch, yet are giving it low scores because they dont find the story interesting, yet the story has more depth than they can comprehend apparently, the show isnt just NFL players getting ass and doing illegal shit for the shits and giggles, its the aftermath from those things that causes dilemmas for the main character Spencer, who is dealing with personal issues as well, if you can look at yourself and say this shows story isnt interesting, than fine, but dont say that the enjoyment you got doesn't make it worth giving it a shot for other people.

    Loving it man!!! not only entertaining but also motivating for being an entrepreneur or athlete in the future. Taking notes from the show on how to deal with people with charm and smartness and being ferocious when needed
  • Jul 17, 2017
    Its easy to watch and it helps to fill the time until the start of the NFL season just right.

    Season one was fire, season 2 was decent. The last 3 or 4 episodes were deep.
