Last Chance U

October 15, 2016 at 7:00 PM

My husband and I sometimes struggle to find common ground when we sit down to watch television, which causes us to waste a lot of time aimlessly browsing Netflix. But recently, one of my random Netflix gambles yielded pay dirt—Last Chance U is a great documentary series that neither of us want to stop watching!  Last Chance U takes viewers on a behind-the-scenes look at the 2015 season of the East Mississippi Community College football team and its quest to win its third straight National Junior College Athletic Association championship. None of the players want to be playing for a junior college, and they hope this is just a brief pit stop on the way to big-time college football. Viewers can’t help but be drawn in by the players fighting for their big chance on the field, while also repeatedly risking their eligibility by blowing off class and skipping their class assignments. Fans of Friday Night Lights, Hoop Dreams, and 30 for 30, here is your new television addiction!  -- Laura Lintz, Coach Eric Taylor-Loving Librarian
