Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that All or Nothing is a documentary series that follows the Arizona Cardinals throughout their entire 2015 football season. The show's major themes are promoting the franchise and playing the game to win, but topics such as professionalism, getting fired, family, and parenthood are also discussed. There's an endless amount of cursing and crude references, but the edited version (rated TV-14) distorts or bleeps out the strongest words. Young football fans might be drawn to it, but parents may want to preview beforehand.

What's the Story?
Produced by NFL Films and narrated by Jon Hamm, ALL OR NOTHING is an eight-part documentary that follows the 2015 Arizona Cardinals from the draft to the National Football Conference championship. A film crew follows head coach Bruce Arians, general manager Steve Keim, and Cardinal team president Michael Bidwell as they watch and work with football players such as quarterback Carson Palmer, wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald, cornerback Patrick Peterson, and safety Tyrann Mathieu. From endless practices to high-stakes games and everything in between, cameras document every aspect of their lives as they attempt to win their way to a Super Bowl victory.
Is It Any Good?
This docuseries offers an informative and comprehensive look at what life is like for the owners, managers, coaches, and players of the Arizona Cardinals. With the help of game footage and interviews with family members, it also offers some insight into the perks, challenges, and sacrifices that come with playing the game professionally. Viewers also get a chance to see many of the team meetings and other behind-the-scenes activities that most non-team members never get to see.
Watching players off the football field, especially when it comes to things like special training camps, locker room conversations, and even seemingly random conversations with coaches and staff, will appeal to football fans of all ages. Nonetheless, at times it feels like a carefully produced promotional video. And given some of the mature conversations it features, it's not an ideal choice for young kids.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about American football. Why is it so popular in the United States? How much work goes into being a professional player? What are some of the controversies surrounding the game and/or its players? Do you think this series offers a balanced look into the lives of these football players?
Is it appropriate to feature a lot of swearing on a show that kids might like to watch? Given that this is a documentary, is it important to make sure that people are filmed exactly as they are, even if they're saying curse words?
