Can you smellll what the Rock, is Watching?

I have that kind of time. (Main image also from his instagram, drinking his tequila, because he’s a unicorn and loves everything I love)

So, Dwayne Johnson is a mythical creature packed with hustle, born of gods and forged by the mana of his people. Needless to say, I’m a fan, I’ll see anything he does twice. My friend Kevin McCarthy somehow became his friend (DJ even follows him on Insta) and I am more jealous of that than any of his other professional accolades.

DJ (I call him that because we’re besties) posted to Insta a couple hours ago with this amazing cheat meal.

Yep, you have to go to instagram to see it, needless to say it’s amazing. One thing I noticed about this and other posts is he’s watching Netflix. I host a show called “The Binge List” where we talk about what to stream. My inclinations lean toward science fiction (Eureka, Warehouse 13), science fantasy (Doctor Who), and buddy cop dramedies (Psych, Chuck, Castle), so I was curious to see what the Rock was cooking on his “Continue Watching”, so pinching my phone in a thousand directions and then doing some digital ninja maneuvers, and a lot of googling and netflix searching, here it is (spoilers: it’s a LOT of documentaries, probably tons of research for Ballers and upcoming film projects, this man is ALL hustle):

  1. Last Chance U

Currently on Season 4 this Netflix original series follows college football teams that aren’t major programs and don’t get much national attention. After a couple seasons of profiling recruits at East Mississippi Community College, which has won several NJCAA national titles, the reality series shifts its focus to Independence Community College. The Kansas school doesn’t have the same type of gridiron pedigree as EMCC — it’s trying to rebound from more than a decade of losses — but the players are dealing with many of the same challenges that the EMCC squad faced — both on and off the field.

The rest I can’t make out, looks like a cool list! Not my bag, but still fun to see nonetheless. Keep up the hustle, and watch Ballers, Hobbs & Shaw, Jumanji 2, and literally everything else because he’s probably in it, if it’s worth watching.
