The Goggler Podcast #143: Winning Time

Dept. of Jibbers, Jabbers, and Yackety-Yaks

Does Adam McKay’s frenetic style distract from the story he’s trying to tell in HBO’s brand new show about the rise of the Lost Angeles Lakers? We don’t think so. In fact, that authorial voice might be crucial in making this series stand out in an otherwise sea of indistinguishable sports docudramas. On today’s episode of The Goggler Podcast, Bahir and Uma watch and review HBO’s Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty.

Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty is a fast-break series about the professional and personal lives of the 1980s Los Angeles Lakers, one of sports’ most revered and dominant dynasties – a team that defined an era, both on and off the court.

The ensemble cast includes: John C. Reilly, Quincy Isaiah, Jason Clarke, Adrien Brody, Gaby Hoffmann, Tracy Letts, Jason Segel, and Sally Field. Adam McKay serves as executive producer and also directs the pilot. Max Borenstein and Jim Hecht are executive producers, writers, and co-creators, with Borenstein also serving as series showrunner.
