This ESPN series is one of the best produced documentary series of all time. The focus is on the much cliched human side of the pro jock, but ESPN's production talent avoids every cliche and breathes fresh life into what had become a tired genre. The emotion filled Brian Piccolo segment is better than BRIAN'S SONG. Secretariat is humanized to where you'd like to hang out with the horse. Jailed former stars are neither glorified or martyred. This is exceptional work. It can only get better.
