Critic Consensus: A compelling and comprehensive portrait of one of basketball's great teams, The Last Dance's blend of archival footage and candid interviews confirms there's nobody quite like Mike or the team he led to victory.


Tv Season Info

In the fall of 1997, Michael Jordan and the Chicago Bulls began their quest to win a sixth NBA title in eight years. But despite all Jordan had achieved since his sensational debut 13 years earlier, "The Last Dance," as coach Phil Jackson called it, would be shadowed by tension with the club's front office and the overwhelming sense that this was the last time the world would ever see the greatest player of all time, and his extraordinary teammates, in full flight.

A stunningly refined and comprehensive look at the legacy and inner turmoil of one of the most essential sports teams of all time.

So I want my comrades in sports indifference to trust me when I say The Last Dance... is gripping television.

It's the present-day packaging and presentation of The Last Dance that allows us to understand why he's such a legend.

Serves as an education, a reintroduction, and a spiritual reunion for one of the great basketball teams of all time. It is as farcically self-involved as it sounds, but how else would one capture Jordan's singular, single-minded essence?

This is the Jordan show - as it should be. By the end, you won't want to be like Mike. But your awe of his superpowers will run even deeper. Something tells me Jordan will be just fine with that.

"The Last Dance" shows the best dances are done with a partner, or in this case, several.
