The Rock is one of the lamest celebrities we've ever had


Yet another massive egomaniac propped up by our idol-worshiping culture


This show perpetuates elitism, helping idolize the greed we're taught to respect and admire


Fuck the trailer is like a catalog of complete douchebaggery that makes every single loser in Surrey go "WHOOAAAA COOL BRUH"


People just eat this shit up

^^Bingo!! No one is winning anything from this show but it bridges the gap in the off-season when there's nothing on. Hey look, cool cars, hot chicks, bros partying and some drama. Meh, I'll take it

pilot was pretty damn underwhelming.

i can see Dwayne's character potentially having good depth (suffering some sort of PTSD? did he kill the guy with that tackle?) but so far it just seems super lame. HBO really dumbing it down with this one.

What's your issue with the Rock? Because he's big? Do you know a single thing about him besides that?

He's the peoples champ for that very reason. He has good intentions and actually interacts with the fans.

The most emotionally charged moment this show has had so far has been a dude reminiscing over his number... not great. It's easy to see all the parallels to Entourage, but somehow this show just really doesn't achieve the same result as Entourage, and I wish it did.

Noticed something a little odd in episode 2. They used the same song as episode 2 of entourage when they go buy the Phantom. Its even used at the exact same time in the episode, about 15 or so minutes in. Considering the same people are involved with both shows you'd think they would have caught that and picked a different song. #randomfacts

For reference. Here is the clip from entourage. Song is Work by Gang Star

^^That clip reminded me how awesome Entourage was and how Ballers is no where near that level.

meh, it's kinda alright. I just can't get into any of the characters at all. They all seem average at best. I hope there are some good cameos to make things interesting.

There aren't really any likeable characters. Quite the opposite actually

show sucks balls and i'm a huge NFL fan

stock characters, stock situations that were just ported into the show.

doesn't actually attempt to show the complexities nor art of the game but i guess it has to appeal to the non sports fan crowd
