Quarterback review: Mostly appealing to a narrow demographic

Quarterback follows three pro-athletes playing in the NFL in what is considered one of the most challenging positions in sport, the quarterback position. The series is streaming on Netflix.


The series dives deep into the lives of Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs, Kirk Cousins of the Minnesota Vikings, and Marcus Mariota of the Atlanta Falcons throughout the 2022-23 NFL season.

It shines a light on the preparation that each athlete has to go through to stay in peak condition and at the top of their game as each week progresses—the importance of the QB in each team and the level of effort that goes into each match.

The highs and lows of each athlete are chronicled up till Patrick Mahomes’ moment of glory as the Chiefs beat the Philadelphia Eagles to win the Superbowl LVI.


The series is truly in-depth and covers all the bases when it comes to these pro athletes and their drive to be the best. They leave no stone unturned and cover quite a lot of interesting areas.

The production value of the series is phenomenal. The coverage during the games, the clear audio picking up every little exchange, and the lighter moments in the lives of the quarterbacks are all in there.

Like most other sports series on Netflix, such as Drive to Survive or Break Point, the drama doesn’t feel as disingenuous here. The focus on three very distinct personalities makes things very engaging.


The series doesn’t have a widespread allure to it and doesn’t even attempt to pull in new audiences with its content. American Football has a specific audience, and Quarterback rarely goes beyond that scope.


Quarterback is an engaging series that highlights three very likable individuals in a punishing yet incredibly exciting sport. The narrow margins between victory and defeat are all on display as the season moves on to a thrilling conclusion.
