Show Premiers on January 11th
Hot damn this show is awesome. Not sure how many seasons worth of material they can make out of it, but 2 at least.
One of the top 3 shows currently airing new episodes in my opinion.
Latest episode was A
Can you describe the show for those who have not seen it yet?
Thor, sure sorry should have done that in the first place.
It follows the story of a former champion boxer 5 years retired at the request of his wife so he can spend time with the family, not risk his life etc. After going through his money faster than thought possible he is forced to begin fighting again to pay debts, provide for his family, etc. Theres side stories involving mobs, underground fights, family drama, shady promoters etc, but the basis of the story is on his return to the arena and training for his championship fight.
Highly recommend it for something completely different
Thanks, sounds good. I might give it a go.
Bad news, FX has cancelled the show.
Very bad news, but I havent read if they will finish out the season or not yet. I really couldnt imagine how fresh the writers could have kept it after a couple seasons anyways, but if they are able to finish this one off in a good way that sums up the story instead of just cutting and running, then I dont mind the cancelling. Wasnt really surprised, FX has picked up a bunch of new shows on top of its current winning line up, somethings gotta give I guess.
Such a shame this show only lasted a season, It never had many seasons worth of storyline but one more would have been great
Totally agree Napalm. No reason this show should have ended. Given another season to build up some more word of mouth hype and I thnk it could have been as bug as whatever we may consider the best this year
There were a lot of business dealing angles between all parties which could have been explored and obviously explaining the vagueness he had after the fight which could have been a simple concussion to mental illness.
Just needed more people to know about it really, it could have done close to Sons of Anarchy really if they hit that market
