This is seriously great.
Watched the first episode and enjoyed it. My girlfriend wasn't into it, so I'll have to find some time to get to this. I'm a sucker for these types of shows.
Halfway through watching an episode a day and it's really well done. Good background about characters who you care about. It's brutal how indifferent the coaches are when someone gets injured. Maybe there's some psychology behind that I'm not understanding lol
Oh and Gabis mom is absolutely insufferable
My wife and I finished it in 3 days. To say we were obsessed is an understatement, and we had to stop ourselves at 2 eps a night
Jerry for president. I wish I knew him. What an incredible person.
Jerry is now one of my favorite things about this planet.
if you like this I also recommend the documentary Step about dancers in Baltimore
four eps in and this is phenomenal. i see a lot of why i love pro wrestling in this lol
Liked this more than last chance u. The majority of the people in this are likeable other than Gabi's parents.
it was uncomfortable to see how the kids, particularly fliers and tumblers, have to focus on eating/weight and such. it's no wonder eating disorders are so prevalent in that world. at the same time, if you're 108 pounds and the next flier over with your skill level is 94 pounds, they're gonna go with the lighter kid. it's tough
seeing one girl step on a scale and be apathetic verging on disappointed with weighing 98 pounds or something was like, holy fuck.
edit: i voiced this to my fiancee and she corrected me that that particular girl was trying to make weight, not cut it. but my sister was big into cheer and struggled greatly with bulimia in high school and beyond, it really can go either way and these are not great habits regardless imo
Just finished this. I enjoyed this a ton more than any Last Chance U season. The final episode made me feel how I wish every season finale to any tv series made me feel. I'd be surprised if they don't do another season of this.
Fucking Jerry man, what an incredible human being.
Lol this scavenger hunt shit is so corny
Idk what you’re talking about. I had to learn the name and minor they studied of every alumni of my elementary Ed program under penalty of expulsion
I mean jerry IS the best
Jerry is a god damn national treasure and must be protected at all costs.
Yah me, and my wife blew threw this last week. Great doc series.
Only disappointment was we didn’t get to know/see the Asian cheerleader. That could have been an interesting story of an Asian American in the south as a cheerleader.
Cheer is an American television docuseries airing on Netflix starting in January 2020.The six-part series follows the nationally ranked forty-member Navarro College Bulldogs Cheer Team from Corsicana, Texas, under the direction of coach Monica Aldama, as they prepare to compete in the National Cheerleading Championship held annually in Daytona Beach, Florida. The episodes focus especially on five individual Cheer Team members and include elements of the history of cheerleading, including the formation of the National Cheerleaders Association (NCA).Director Greg Whiteley came across competitive cheerleading while filming for his football television series Last Chance U.
Is this a movie?
