The long-awaited docuseries on the Los Angeles Lakers has preimered on Hulu with the first two episodes.
IMDb currently has it rated 8.1 out of 10. Antoine Fuqua is directing and the production companies include: Los Angeles Media Fund (LAMF), Haven Entertainment, as well as Hill District Media.
The series is slated for 10 episodes.
After watching the TV series Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty on HBO, I connected with the characters of the Lakers dynasty. This docuseries aligns well with that series to provide additional depth to the characters. Some critics are noting the story sugarcoats the real-life conflict that took place in LA during the late 70s and early 80s. The story focuses on the Buss family with their involvement with the organization.
The docuseries was years in the making and I am excited to see it finalized. My personal rating for the first two episodes would be 9.2 out of 10. The interviews are crafted well, but I would release a directors cut of the content and provide hours of material that may be getting cut short to keep attention. In addition, I would also release a directors cut of The Last Dance documentary. Both pieces keep my attention, and I would assume other viewers could watch this for hours as well.
Episode 1 had a comical moment featuring John Salley providing commentary on the entertainment side of the Lakers. Those types of exterior points of view are well done. Dive into new episodes each Monday on Hulu.
