Show Sunday | First Impression: Beckham

My dad and I started watching the new documentary on Netflix about David Beckham. We’re both football fans so we were definitely interested in this one! After watching the first episode I wanted to share my thoughts with you, so let’s jump in!

David Beckham is one of the most known names on the planet, yet few people know who he really is. From his humble working-class beginnings in east London, his drive and determination to win, and the battle to find balance between ambition, love and family, David’s story is one of immense ups and downs.

Like I said, my dad and I are football fans so of course we know all about David Beckham. Furthermore, I grew up listening to the Spice Girls so seeing them included is a lot of fun!

Right away that is one of the positives about this documentary, there is a lot of old footage from matches, David in the ‘wild’, interviews but also from the Spice Girls. And I really loved seeing all of that!

While I did enjoy the first episode, I do think you might miss some context and extra information if you don’t know that much about football. Some references probably mean nothing to you and it might take away some of the enjoyment.

The first episode painted David in a really positive light. And mostly I think that is deserved, he seems like a pretty good guy but I didn’t feel like they were completely honest and open. It will be interesting to see everything around Rebecca Loos because the clips I saw seemed like they kind of moved around the topic.

I will definitely be watching the rest of the mini series but I don’t think it’ll be my favorite documentary ever. It is enjoyable though! Have you seen it? Or do you plan on watching it? I would love to hear from you in the comments!
