A Review: Tom vs. Time, Episode 1

Love him or hate him, Tom Brady is an intriguing man. Often portrayed in many different ways by the media, human always seems to be overlooked. I was hoping this docu-series would take care of that gap and in a way, the series producer did try but…well, it didn’t work.  Sure, in the first episode we see Brady pulling out his scrap book (for a lack of a better name) full of memories from each season, including his suspension letter, and witnessed him in the car venting and receiving encouraging feedback from Gisele after the season opener loss to Kansas City, but it all seemed too perfect. Too scripted, especially the product placement.

With that said, I still found the episode to be interesting. We got a quick glimpse into his training routine, including some, we assume, pliability work, the ways in which he stays motivated, and his cute family. Speaking of family, I applaud Brady for cutting his WEEI interview short this week after one of the station’s personalities made a horrible comment about his daughter. Even though the hosts of the morning show Brady calls into every Monday during the season had nothing to do with the comment, the personality who did represents the station as a whole and Brady has a right to evaluate his relationship with them. And for what it’s worth, I thought his daughter was adorable.
