News & Interviews for Cheer: Season 1
Cheer's hardworking, eager-to-please athletes are indeed transcendent. But Cheer doesn't let their victories shine.
As much as it salutes the various breakthroughs that Navarro team members make, "Cheer" is certainly not blind to the consequences that come with such a full commitment to a single pursuit.
I found the series utterly engrossing, just perhaps not in the way its marketing suggests. I did see the hard work, the dedication, and the benefits of giving people a place to belong and to work hard. But I also saw something darker.
Director Greg Whiteley doesn't shy away from showing the grim reality of many of these cheerleaders' futures.
The team's racial and gender dynamics are fascinating, especially in the context of conservative Corsicana.
The amateur nature of cheer is starting to change, a shift Cheer explores in the character of Gabi Butler, a social media sensation who's essentially a family business.
Cheer is a sensation but at times it can struggle to hold attention throughout its 50- to 60-minute episodes. Despite occasional lags, Cheer redefines stereotypical understandings of what it means to be a cheerleader in all its grit and glory.
The road to perfection is full of bumps, and Cheer knows the bumps are an essential part of the journey.
"Cheer" isn't so much a new take on an old story as it is proof there's drama wherever two or more gather.
Cheer benefits from the "small-town" mentality. There's a community-feeling that enshrines each chapter.
Despite this being a niche sport not a lot of people care about, the moving backstories and intricate interpersonal dynamics on Cheer make for compulsive viewing.
Audience Reviews for Cheer: Season 1
Sep 13, 2020Very well done... But there's just too much to watch out there and I bailed after 1 episode. Just felt a little too slow paced for me... Plus I'm definitely not in the demo.
Jun 06, 2020Excellent and heartwarming
Apr 03, 2020Really enjoyable journey to the Cheerleading finals - this documentary also allows you to follow some really inspirational stories, and the highs and lows of the people who make up the Navarro team!
Mar 27, 2020This is a great documentary, with well-narrated storyline and it really helps understanding the world of cheerleading. I had no idea how competitive and difficult it gets! Great series, I hope there will be more.
Mar 09, 2020Much, much better than I expected.
Mar 08, 2020Loved it! I don't even know why I decided to watch it, but I am so glad I did. I hope they have another season.
Feb 24, 2020I loved seeing how hard the athletes worked, but after watching the entire series, I looked at the competition. There is only one - yes ONE - other school in their division Navarro is guaranteed either a First or Second place. Seems to me that during the show, it seemed that their 'biggest' competition was Trinity Valley. Turns out, Trinity Valley is their ONLY competition. This is not to diminish NC's work ethic, but with only first place and last place available, the competition is less compelling.
Feb 23, 2020Fantastic documentary by the crew that have brought us Last Chance U. Characters galore.
Feb 21, 2020loved this! showed me so much insight to a world I was always curious about. So pleased by this show
Feb 21, 2020I adore a good sports show, so I gave this series a watch. I was pleasantly surprised by it. It pulls you in with the tension created by the competition within the team to get "onto the mat" and the need to work together to win. But you stay because you really begin to root for the the each of the featured cheerleaders.
