Inspirational,motivational, and frequently infuriating, Last Chance U is a fascinating trip beyond the field and the locker room that dives into the gritty fabric of one of the country's most unpredictably successful sports programs.
I do not like American football. I do not understand American football. The college football system is the most bafflingly arcane thing of all time. And yet Last Chance U might be the best sports documentary series I have ever seen.
Last Chance U proves a gripping snapshot of individuals on the brink of both triumph and failure, and the many forces (emotional, psychological, familial) conspiring to push them in one direction or the other.
