Storyline

"Matador" is centered on Antonio "Matador" Bravo, a popular soccer star and playboy whose sports stardom is a cover for his other life as a covert operative executing missions for a little known branch of the CIA. He uses his notoriety as a way of getting access to powerful and villainous types, but is forced to confront questions of his true identity in balancing his dual roles. Written by Jiilo_Kim

As a European this made me cry a little
24 July 2014 | by woraloSee all my reviews

I went into this with no expectation, because let's face it an American TV series with soccer in it.

So even without my expectations this was pathetic. 'Soccer is just like poker, every player has his tell' Damn, they couldn't find even a single expert on the game in the whole nation? A dancer being a soccer player because of his dance technique, I almost cried there.

Also soccer players throwing punches, this isn't hockey guys!

And the childish humorist setting in the show feels as if they are ridiculing the sport.

Soccer fans, do not watch this.
