HBO is releasing season two of Ballers on Blu-ray and DVD next week. Ballers is about a former football player who now works as a money manager for football players. I love this series. It has a football feel, yet it rarely show athletes playing football. Ballers is more about the characters instead of the game of football. The characters grow on you and you become vested in their lives. Ballers: S2 is available now on digital HD, and will be available on Blu-ray and DVD on January 31st. Note: the series is rated TV-MA for nudity and sex scenes.
New Blu-rays and DVDs this week include Eddie the Eagle (review | giveaway | Hugh Jackman), Ballers: The Complete First Season (review | Dwayne Johnson), London Has Fallen (Gerard Butler), 10 Cloverfield Lane (John Goodman), Hello My Name Is Doris (Sally Field), 45 Years (Charlotte Rampling), Blackhat (Chris Hemsworth), The Young Messiah (Adam Greaves-Neal), X-Files: The Event Series (David Duchovny, Gillian Anderson), and Quackerz (review).

HBO is releasing the first season of Ballers on Tuesday. I watched the first season recently and liked it. I think Ballers would be a fun Father’s Day gift for dads who love sports. The series is about a former NFL player who is now using his connections to sign up athletes for the investment firm he works for. The show is a really good drama and the characters are interesting. Like I already said, Ballers would be a good gift for a dad into sports. Ballers: The Complete First Season will be available on Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD on June 14th. Note: Ballers is rated TV-MA for profanity, nudity and sex scenes.
