    The last dance....fantastic documentary!!!!

    Iím not a fan of basketball but after hearing all the hype I finally started watching it last night and before I knew it 4 episodes had gone by!
    Itís so interesting having an insight into the mind of someone like Jordan and the team as a whole,anyone else watched it?

    I have seen a number of people mention that its really good.

    I did consider it, but not being into basketball I figured it wasn't for me.

    Never watched basket ball but hooked on this documentary , Michael jordan - just canít help admire his sportsmanship and determination. Also would love to see a basketball game now- so fast paced!

    Been watching it and think it is one of the best series I have watched for a long while. The Bulls and Air Jordans were part of my teenage years so to see this in detail was fascinating and I didn't previously really have a feel for just how impactful MJ was to the game. I highly recommend it.

    If you're on twitter it's well worth checking out Andrew Hawkins (@hawk) and his parody sketches of the series - they are hilarious; "I'm gonna bust his ass and give him 60".

    Yes was pretty good I suppose not being exposed to the subject matter as a kid helped. I mean I knew who MJ was and that was about it. I suppose with the rise of global football and its growth in the states he might of been basketballs High point.

    Half way through, but unlike earlier posters I’m familiar with a lot of the game footage — I was fascinated by Jordan when he was playing, have highlight dvds etc etc. Whilst I knew about the talent he had, it’s an eye opener to see the sheer determination. Great show so far. Whilst Lebron James is matching him now in stats, I don’t think there’s any question about the best ever. It’s like the Messi Ronaldo debate.

    An amazing athlete, in terms of intensity, work ethic and desire to win I can't think of anyone who comes near. Maybe some like Christiano Ronaldo. I'm on episode 9, great series but a little long. I'm sure basketball is as popular as ever though.

    Iíve just started watching it - not quite through the first episode.

    Whatís with the red eyes and massive tumbler of whisky ? Does that come out throughout the other episodes ?

    Never been majorly into basketball, didn't know tons about the history or Jordan or the game before watching this. It is nothing short of sensational and brilliantly produced. I enjoyed the way the timeline shifted back and forth, showing the sliding doors moments and how MJ and the team drew on those previous experiences. Really cleverly done.

    And when Michael Jordan says "it became personal for me" you know you are in trouble

    Another recommendation from me - itís a superb documentary. I knew nothing about basketball and only really knew the names of Jordan, Pippen etc. Even my wife is enjoying it and thatís a first with a sports doc!

    Absolutely amazing show, I vaguely remember the stuff from about 97 on and most of the names, but wow talk about a driven individual who demands the best and leads by example, say what you will but the man truly transcended the sport...

    Apparently he drinks a lot and itís likely to be his own brand, very expensive tequila.

    Itís not mentioned though

    Fantastic programme, including how it has been filmed and produced.

    MJ will be up there with the likes of Ali, Babe Ruth etc.

    Best series I have watched for a very long time. Probably IMO only The Sopranos beats it.

    What a driven guy.

    Another recommendation here. Unfortunately Jordan kind of passed me by when he was at his peak, as I never got the chance to watch the NBA (think it was on Sky and despite my best efforts at persuading the parents to get it they wouldnít budge!). I knew the name obviously, but didnít really get to see what all the hype was about. Genuinely fascinating stuff

    An amazing documentary, understandable why he became the most famous (sports) person in the world for his time, with his mentality.

    A quote from episode 9 or 10 about positivity and keeping in the moment

    "Why should I be worried about a shot I havenít taken yet"

    Brilliant - may watch it again. Well worth the cost of Netflix alone!

    Enjoyed the series, and as a non basket ball fan, it's interesting to hear the story of Jordan.

    I was massively into basketball, Jordan and the Bulls in the early 90ís. I think the driver was the hype around the ĎDream Teamí at the Ď92 Olympics! Worth watching some of the games as that team were an unstoppable force!

    Iíve loved it. Watched the last two last night. Found it enthralling and one of the best things Iíve watched in ages.
    Jordan has to be one of greatest sportsmen of all time. Up there with all the game changers.

    Having watched all the episodes and absolutely loved it, I found this a really interesting piece to read afterwards.

    I have never seen someone with such a single-minded determination to win. Scary and inspiring at the same time. I love it that little Steve Kerr stood up to him.

    Finished this last night and was enthralled the while way through.
    I personally liked how he went out at the top, and pushed himself to so do. Perhaps not the most likeable character in the world but he was a winner through and through.

    Its mad that we look at Steve Kerr and think of him as the little guy....he's 6ft 3 inches.

    These guys are feakily tall and very very badly dressed......but that was the 90's.

    Yeah made me chuckle watching them all walking round in suits that looked like they were from charity shops. Surprisingly hard to look good as a freakishly tall millionaire in the 90ís!
