Ballers: “Pilot” Review - AVClub

AVClub: It’s inevitable that HBO’s latest half-hour comedy, Ballers, will be compared to Entourage. There are certainly plenty of reasons why the two shows can be spoken of in the same breath. There’s the fact that Entourage executive producer Stephen Levinson created the show, and that Mark Wahlberg serves as an executive producer here. More than just the people involved though, the two shows share a similar tone, one of overflowing masculinity in a world of very rich and potentially shallow people.

The story is too old to be commented.
