    And my favourite film is Any Given Sunday!

    Is it any good?

    Series is fantastic, hidden Gem

    Didn't realise there was a movie either.

    It strikes me as a bit like Dream Team but from the US.

    Sadly, i quite liked Dream Team :)

    Read the book too, it's fantastic.

    Edit: It's all based on a true story. The book is based around 1 year this guy spent following a high school football team in small town Texas. It's amazing to see how much hope the community pin on this one group of school kids.

    Its easily one of the best shows on tv now. Really well written. Even when they made a huge fuck up in season 2 they still redeemed themselves

    Season 3 will consist of 13 episodes. The chief writer and exec producer has said, in a few recent interviews, that the reduced number will make it much easier to write and should keep the standard really high. Cant wait.

    If you liked Any Given Sunday, also consider Playmakers, another american footy series, its fucking great. I'm always bigging it up but no one seems to have seen it.

    It's amazing. One of my favourite shows on TV now, if not ever. It's biggest strength is character building, by the end you care about everything these people do, thanks to amazing writing and a great cast, full of young talented actors.

    And it's nothing like Dream Team.

    Supposed to be studying at the moment, but haven't started yet :)

    I did that as well fourteen, i said "I'll just watch the first one" watched 4 in a row, and then the whole series in 3 nights.

    You have been warned : )

    Just watched the film and the first 5 episodes of season one.

    it seriously IS like Dream Team, but with slightly less attractive women.

    still, enjoying it. Kind of a mix of the OC/Dawsons Creek and Any Given Sunday.

    On episode 6 of series two now.

    Lance is easily the best character.

    Watched the first ten episodes over the last two days. It's pretty good but after the initial few (and the obligatory star player being crippled) seems to drift away from the Football and focus too much on the whole teens-in-small-town-America aspect. Hopefully should change as it nears the inevitable 'big game' but I'll just have to wait and see.

    Anybody watching season 3? Still one of the best shows around.

    Very impressed with the first couple of episodes so far.

    Ive seen all episodes in less than a week. Such a great show and its filmed in an interesting way. I really hope this gets picked up for a 4th season.

    Anyone know if series 2/3 are coming to the PAL regions on DVD? My lappy has decided it doesn't like connecting to the net (much) anymore.

    Not sure about that, I thought the last episode wrapped everything up nicely.

    The last episode was brilliant but I wouldn't say no to more. :D

    I've been waiting for series 2 and 3 on DVD too but it doesn't look like they will be getting a release. I hope they do though.

    Just rewatching the first season now and decided to go looking for 2 and 3 in PAL.

    No luck unfortunately, but I did spot the complete series one for 7.99 on Play.
