Funny and thrilling look on soccer wives
If you like "Gooische Vrouwen" and "Desperate Housewives" you will love Voetbalvrouwen. The series is almost a spoof on the clichés of soccer wives: Blond, not too smart and complete shopaholics. This series delivers it all. Newcomer Renske goes from the province to Big City Amsterdam because her boyfriend will play for Champions league club Heros. She is faced with new morals when she meets three other soccer wives. It is hilarious when they have discussions on money, husbands and having a job on your own. The series looks glossy, no expenses were saved: big cars, huge homes, and soccer sequences that where shot in Utrecht Stadium. I liked it a lot because the show does not take itself too seriously. It is funny most the time and dramatic as well in its cliffhangers. Can't wait to see the next episode.
