Pretty good way to end the season. The Chinese characters (caricatures) were unfortunate though.

I watched season 1 a week ago and it was good. Started ok, but after church scene in episode 4 i knew show is good.
Very good cast and acting. There is a lot of heart in this show.
I hope Eva from Nike returns in season 2, because i really liked her character.
When do we think season 2 premieres? Starz says summer, so i would guess in August paired with Blunt Talk after Power finishes its season.

First episode of this season was good, caught it at the end of the season finale of Power on demand. If you enjoyed the first season then you'll enjoy this.

Grown-Ass Man

As Season 2 tips off, the Calloways have moved from the penthouse to a regal new mansion, and Cam's new contract and its serious clauses ties him tightly to owner Jimmy Flaherty, who wants to maximize Cam's time.

The show solves things too quick.

I like the characters. The cousin manager's wife is fine. I want a wife just like that.

Cam was being a baby this episode. Glad the owner made that remark about him saying grown-ass man because I was thinking the same thing. Really funny episode though. Like that lady asking him to tell her sister to stop doing heroin. Lots of other hilarious moments. I think I laughed more at this episode than the entire season of Ballers.

He really was. It was actually pretty annoying so I'm glad he came to his senses in the end.

Sounds good and Starz has been on a role with the Black produced shows lately. I hope this has the usual Starz freedom and not being bogged down on some PG shit because LeBron's name is attached.

Most non-HBO premium cable shows tend to fly under the radar. It's a fun show though - you should watch it!

Hysterical episode though Julius killing the dog was a bit mean. At least it seemed to be affecting him though. Too bad more people around GAF aren't watching this. Probably in my top ten comedies still airing and there are like three people watching on here it seems.

Wow. That was a really interesting plot to jump into this week. Hilarious as usual. The plot with Reggie seemed a little meh though. Some funny moments I really liked:

-M-Chuck liking that Cam called her a lady.
-The part at the beginning where Julius says, "You were asking what Blair did..." or something to that effect.

P.S. I think I'd prefer if Ballers was three-minute webisodes instead of 30 minute episodes.

The DeShauwn/Jupiter storyline reminded me a lot of the Reggie/Vernon stuff in Ballers. I didn't think it was entirely successful, but at least it was a one and done. M-Chuck's side of the episode was great though.

This show's good and all, but the one thing that I really don't like about it is that it doesn't really show any actual basketball stuff. 2 seasons in and we still haven't seen Cam make a single jump shot.

Not if IMDB is correct.

Was Cam's car missing at the end? Is he gonna get fucked up by Deshauwn?

I think the implication was that Reggie, who used to always be there to pick Cam up, is no longer there for him due to his new career path.

Deshaun was really annoying. The potential conflict/friction this sets up between Reggie and Cam later on could be interesting though. I really enjoyed the M-Chuck storyline.

You can stream all the episodes on Starz Play, but it requires a cable + Starz subscription. It's not on Netflix or anything as far as I know.
