'Ballers' Starring the Rock Is Officially Ending — Here's Why

By

I grew up watching Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and have pretty much watched everything he's been in, barring Skyscraper (I've seen Die Hard) Rampage (video game movies always suck), The Tooth Fairy (I grew up Muslim, we don't believe in fairies but jinns are OK), and Ballers.

I think the biggest reason I never watched the HBO comedy series is that, from the way it was marketed, I could never tell it was a comedy. Which might be why it's ending in its fifth season, maybe?

When The Great One's comedy show first debuted, for some reason, I thought it was a drama about football. Maybe it had something to do with the way it was advertised, or the fact that The Rock always looked so serious as he was holding the phone up to his ear, but never once in any of the promos did I see jokes. That might be my problem, though, because it took me the longest time to realize that Entourage was a comedy too.
