I watched a tv show about it. It was one of those murder mystery kind of shows. I agree it's a wild story but I don't need a stretched out rehash.

I also started this during the week. I am 3/8 episodes in.

A well off/interior design business owner/2 annoying daughters/4 time divorcee decides to give love another chance. She meets John online. He is a divorced doctor and they hit it off on date 1 after she strikes out with several others.

But wait....her daughters don't like him. I mean...REALLY don't like him. They start to see signs that John may not be right for mom even as the relationship is progressing at a fast pace.

Older/spoiled daughter starts to investigate. She sells one of her Chanel bags(which she keeps in a safe in her bedroom) to pay for a private investigator.

What will she find out? What will her mother think if she tells her? Will John spazz out?

Each episode captures a time in the relationship as well as a look back on previous marriages.

You may say to yourself, self, this sounds like a comedy. Nope, it's actually based on a true story and really isn't bad. The daughters can be over the top, but I will definitely finish this up over the wknd.

3/5 after 3 eps. I don't see this going up more than .5 based on the ending. It definitely can go down.

I finished this last night. Gonna drop it down to a 2/5.

While the story as a whole was interesting, the latter part(8 eps in total) really didn't do anything for me. I guess that they can only do so much as it is based on a true story.

Thanks for the recap. Just started it and it’s better than I thought. After this and Ozark, I’m smitten with Julia Garner.

I’m trying so hard not to spoiler it for myself. Haven’t heard the real story.

No prob.

I try to make all my reviews vague so it doesn't ruin it for anyone. The first 3 eps were much better than the last 5, IMO.

But it isn't horrible.

You know...when I was sick recently, that's all anyone talked about(online). Does it shed any light on him?Bulls that has not already been said? I feel that I don't need to be in a rush to watch it(especially being a Pistons fan!)

I haven't watched it either, but it sounds like no new ground was covered. He was a massive asshole on the court and some people still believe that made his teammates more successful. His assholeness also made him possibly the greatest basketball player ever. Ken Burns believes it's a vanity piece, not real history (he's right).

I dunno, I'm not a huge follower of sports, and I was just a kid during that time, so there's a lot to it that's new to me. Makes heavy use of the footage from the documentary team that was with them in 97 as well fresh interviews with seemingly everyone (and Obama).

Started watching because it was highly recommended by people who are big NBA fans so...

I'm in no rush.

Between the Pistons 30 > 4 > 30 and all of the other vids on Youtube and the recent book I read, Dream Team, I have no interest right now.

I did read today that he has decided to donate $100mil over the next 10 years for racial equality/diversity. I guess Nike/his people said...hey Mike........you gotta give some of the $ away and make it look as if you care!

Fun fact: Back in the day in Vegas, Michael Jordan was known as 'hoardin' Jordan.' Pippen was known 'No tippin' Pippen.' Rodman could make it rain tho...

The doc was a total propaganda piece, but enjoyable nonetheless for casual fans such as myself. I think if you were a real basketball fan, it would be boring. The doc plays up the drama of the games: who will win? If you know the answer, I think that kind of thing would get old quick.

Billy Corgan tells a good Rodman story on the JRE podcast:

Au contraire! I have nothing but respect and admiration for poor tippers. I'm a pretty bad tipper myself, but when I see somebody really take it to the next level, while being polite and courteous, I instantly want to marry or become best friends with this person.

No. I respect him as a basketball player.

I also respect that the many Jordan fans are bandwagon fans. No one was a Bulls fan before Jordan if you didn't live in Chi. Then many claimed that they were DL fans. Ok.

Same with Lebron. Everyone all of a sudden loved Cleveland. Then when he went to Miami, people said...I also like the Heat. Ok.

I live in NYC. I have always been a Pistons fan. If the Knicks signed Isiah Thomas, I would still be a Pistons fan.

Plus, Jordan really was not a nice person.
