Drama, suspense, and football — what more could you want out of a show? The duo of Alazraki and Lam, who were classmates at USC School Of Cinematic Arts, expertly weave together satire on gender, class, and corruption in Mexican politics with poignant drama over the course of four seasons. Often caught in the middle of this feud are the Cuervos management, players and the people of Nuevo Toledo. The camaraderie between the two is also a breath of fresh air in a series that had previously thrived on their seemingly lifelong conflict, which inevitably grew tiresome after the first few seasons. Chava and his faithful assistant Hugo Sanchez, played by Jesus Zavala, found Cuervos TV, and Isabel handles the team and day-to-day operations of the club. While there have always been many storylines throughout the series, the last season does a masterful job of bringing many of them together and wrapping them all up as well. The ending provides closure for both Isabel and Chava too, which viewers can take solace in. The final season has plenty of hilarious highlights, including an episode in which Isabel uses a former player as a surrogate to coach the team and another where the former coach climbs on top of the team bus to profess his love for Isabel.

Dozens of missionaries have told me that the gender ratios in other countries are far, far worse.
