Critic Reviews for Tiger: Season 1

All Critics (27)

Where Tiger differs from many sports docs, including last year's ESPN series about Jordan, is in its candid and sometimes wrenching portrayal of its subject's emotional life.

Maybe there's high interest in an interview with one of his mistresses from a decade ago. But mostly this is old news repackaged as a classic sports redemption story.

A series with a professional sheen, a few interesting stories that fans will want to hear, but too little depth and insight to make the green.

What promises to be an insightful look at an enigmatic athlete, along the lines of The Last Dance or OJ: Made in America, ends up as a simple career overview with some gossipy moments sprinkled throughout it.

Though it's imperfect, Tiger can serve as a reminder that the easy stories aren't necessarily the ones we should be telling. In truth, we should meet our heroes - and think about who the villains really are, too.

I have almost no interest in golf...Nevertheless, I found Tiger to be a very well done and gripping documentary.
