It Is Not That Bad

So, I had no idea what this show was until finding a negative review on it from YouTube. But this YouTuber also did a did review on another show I like called Paradise PD. So, I wanted to give this a watch & see what it was about. Hoops really isn't as bad as everyone says it is. I found it to be pretty funny at times & I couldn't help but stay interested in the plot as I was going through the season. It is DEFINITELY not for everyone. 95% of the jokes are focused around crude humor. I remember hearing of that before watching it. And surprisingly, it can be pretty entertaining. People say Coach Hopkins is an unlikable character, but that was practically the point. He is supposed to piss you off & he is supposed to annoy you. Which is the reason why he is now he is on the series. There are also some other pretty funny jokes throughout the show that kept me laughing for a good minute (like when the team poured boiling water on coach instead of Gatorade). The show isn't "over the top" funny. But it still keeps you entertained, and there are some pretty good jokes every now & then. The language is easily the most graphic thing on the series (overdone in many cases). Consist usage of the F Bomb, S--t, & other words like that. The words are featured in nearly every conversation & it can be pretty annoying to somebody who is not used to language. There is a lot of sexual talk too (about various sexual activities), but there really isn't as much of it as you would think. If all of the strong language were removed, it would have a chance at being rated 'TV 14' for language & sexual content. It really isn't that graphic. But if you don't want kids to hear strong language, this is NOT a show to let them watch. F bombs are in nearly every sentence. Not a terrible show. But if you don't like strong language or you find crude humor to really piss you off. This isn't for you lol. Definitely for ages 17+, the language on this show is what makes it as graphic as it is.
