News & Interviews for Cheer: Season 1
Cheer's hardworking, eager-to-please athletes are indeed transcendent. But Cheer doesn't let their victories shine.
There's no competitive cheerleading beyond college level, which casts an elegiac tone over the show, and makes the team's dedication all the more striking.
As much as it salutes the various breakthroughs that Navarro team members make, "Cheer" is certainly not blind to the consequences that come with such a full commitment to a single pursuit.
I found the series utterly engrossing, just perhaps not in the way its marketing suggests. I did see the hard work, the dedication, and the benefits of giving people a place to belong and to work hard. But I also saw something darker.
Despite this being a niche sport not a lot of people care about, the moving backstories and intricate interpersonal dynamics on Cheer make for compulsive viewing.
