    10 CLOVERFIELD LANE – 9/10; EDDIE THE EAGLE – 3/10; LONDON HAS FALLEN – 1/10

    In its 1st season, BALLERS was compared a lot to ENTOURAGE, but it lacks something that show had: Interesting storylines and characters, funny jokes and a title sequence that’s great because of the design and the theme song choice.

    I’ll watch 45 YEARS. Oh, and maybe HELLO MY NAME IS DORIS and LA CHIENNE. I’ll skip THE YOUNG MESSIAH.
