Coaches push their players, players push themselves, and a club president wants them to win so that the club can keep playing.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Six Dreams is a Spanish documentary series that follows players in Spain’s Division 1 Football League. It's got lots of cursing in Spanish (which is translated in the subtitles), as well as some mature conversations about the impact playing for the league has had on professional and personal lives. There are rough plays on the field, as players often push and shove in order to win the match. Logos for various Spanish football clubs are visible, as are brands like Nike, New Balance, and Adidas. Teen football fans should be able to handle it.

What's the story?

SIX DREAMS is a documentary series that offers an inside look into Spanish division one football (a.k.a. soccer). It follows three players in the league, known as "La Liga," including Mexican football veteran and Real Betis player Andrés Guardado, and two rising stars: Atletico de Madrid’s Saúl Ñíguez and Athletic Club Bilbao’s Iñaki Williams. Also featured are Quique Cárcel, the sports manager of the recently promoted Girona Football Club, Eduardo Berizzo, a retired Argentine football player who now coaches for Athletic Bilbao after being fired from the Sevilla FC, and Amaia Gorostiza, the president of SD Eibar. From trying to prove themselves on the field, to doing what they can to ensure a winning season, each player reveals the hard work that goes into being part of La Liga, sacrifices they each make to be there, and the impact it has on their personal and professional lives from their own unique point of view.

Is it any good?

This energetic Spanish series, offers a look into the world of La Liga, which boasts some of the best and most competitive football teams in the world. Six Dreams highlights many of the day-to-day challenges players face, like trying to rise up in the ranks, and struggling with the inevitable (and career-ending) aging process. It also shows how coaches struggle to get their squads in shape and remain on top in order to keep their jobs. Meanwhile, Amaia Gorostiza shows how difficult, frustrating, and rewarding being the football club president of the Liga club with the smallest budget can be, especially during difficult economic times.

The combination of interviews with footage from practices and matches is entertaining, especially when it includes players and coaches from some of the more famous Spanish clubs. Viewers may also be surprised by how La Liga is structured, and the obstacles the different operatives face behind the scenes. The feelings shared by each player during the experience brings a humanity to this particular sports series. If you’re not a football fan, you probably won’t be immediately drawn to it. But if you are, Six Dreams is definitely worth the watch.
