***Warning*** If you're sensitive to vulgar language, nudity, excessive drug/alcohol use, and sexual situations then this is not for you, but if you can handle this then you're in for a hilarious ride. Without saying too much, Kenny Powers is an incredibly arrogant guy who will stop at nothing to get what he wants (or regain his fame) and will destroy everyone (and everything) in his path to get there. If you like, "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" then you'll very likely enjoy this.

Any show that has a plot that is revolving around sports, I'm all for it. I thought the part of the show with going to Mexico was kind of lengthy, but I tolerated it. The part that captured my heart and had me crying for weeks was the last episode. It's been some time, since I saw it, but the plot was explained perfectly while his kids was celebrating his life.

You're thinking of watching this, it's why you're scrolling through the reviews. Just know that some of the people who gave this show a low rating, also gave rather high ratings to the Transformer movies.....so....there you go. Watch it and laugh your ass off.
