It's a strange world where Xbox is providing us with original programming, despite this I decided it falls under what I should cover in terms of reviews. So here's the very first one covering the first episode of Every Street United which basically is a documentary styled show that takes two elite soccer players and gets them to pick eight street football players from around the globe to compete at Brazil. That's the premise and I was quite surprised that the show was fairly interesting and I didn't even notice the half hour block go by. This first episode just establishes what they are set out to and then begins picking some of the athletes are to compete in this street arena game. It was really something to see some of those players and their unique skill sets that varied quite a bit depending on the country they were taking a pool of individuals from. Personally at this point I think the Netherlands or South Korea had the best players, but we'll have to see how that goes over the total eight episode series. There wasn't a ton to the episode in terms of content, but it covered the basis and was interesting enough for me not to turn it off despite having a real meh stance when it comes to soccer (football) even though I played it for a few years back in the day.
Every Street United is shown in a documentary style so it may not be for everyone, but it is an interesting show. I enjoyed this first episode and am quite fascinated in how it will develop through the set of episodes that it takes place. I didn't even know Xbox had a soccer team, but I'm putting my bets so far towards the Netherland pick to win this game. So if you'd like to learn more about street football or even see this competition take place its worth a watch. I'll have a review for the second episode when it airs next week.
