‘The Last Dance’ Is Already Being Called The Michael Jordan Of Docos, So BRB Watching ASAP

the last dance

The first two episodes of the highly-anticipated Michael Jordan documentary The Last Dance just premiered on Netflix and fans are already fucking obsessed with it.

The 10-part docu-series takes an in-depth look at the basketball legend’s impressive career, focussing particularly on the Chicago Bulls’ 1997-98 season. Throughout the doco, fans can expect never-before-seen footage and interviews from Jordan’s former teammates, coaches, friends, and the legend himself.

He needs no introduction, but MJ still felt the need to give what can only be described as the least necessary introduction of all time.

We’ll be getting two new hour-long episodes (back-to-back) every Monday for the next five weeks, with a total of 10 hours of juicy footage to binge-watch throughout isolation. Each episode will drop shortly after 5pm AEST, making it the perfect show to chuck on while enjoying your Monday night knock-off drinks.

As the first reviews roll in, The Last Dance is sitting pretty with a stellar 100% rating on the Tomatometer (Rotten Tomatoes’ critic review system).

Within hours of the show’s international debut, #TheLastDance amassed more than half a million mentions on Twitter, proving that people have a lot to say about the series.

For starters, Barack Obama (yes, the former POTUS) was simply referred to as “former Chicago resident.” Talk. About. SHADE.


I mean, Barack Obama was great and all. But was he really as good as Michael Jordan? ESPN’s 30 for 30 sure doesn’t think so.

But more importantly, everyone fucking LOVED it. Can somebody please explain why they didn’t just drop the whole series for our binge-watching pleasure? Rude.

Michael Jordan may be the GOAT of basketball, but The Last Dance is the GOAT of documentaries.

Some fans are already re-watching it, which is surely a sign they should’ve given us more than two episodes at a time.

If you’re looking for a way to kill some time, The Last Dance has you covered.

The first two episodes of The Last Dance are available on Netflix now to cure your self-isolation boredom.
