Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty

Warning: show depicts drug use in some episodes

Number of episodes: 10

1980, the year the underdogs of the NBA won it all. From Jerry Buss buying the team to the final game in Philly, this limited series shows just how they pulled it off. Full of behind-the-scenes drama (some dramatized) you learn just what it took for this team to succeed. John C. Reilly does a great job portraying Buss and delivering a passionate performance of an amateur team owner. After each episode, you can watch interviews with the actors and past players for insight and details about the events in the episodes. If you love basketball or want to learn more about its history I’d give this a go!

Rating: 4/5
