Playmakers-Season 1
just like The Shield and Nip/Tuck- Playmakers was meant to be an FX show- but it got picked up by ESPN- just like those shows- everything happens @ 11- meaning they cram in every scenario they can into the shows- sadly the NFL pressured ESPN to take this show off the air- they did not like the steroids,homosexual,fighting,murder- felt it was bad the image of the NFL(although every one of those issues have occured).Playmakers follows several players thru the season- Leon Taylor an over the hill running back trying to come back from a knee injury,D.H. the cocky drug addict(played by Omar Gooding),the cockslinger gunlinger QB and others- solid entertainment- very over-the top-but very engrossing B
