This show is about a man, Alex Kane, who loses his wife to a gunman and now he wants revenge. Someone from a secret society approaches him and asks Alex to be their “player”, hence the title. It turns out that this secret society bets on crime and the player is told to stop it.
After watching the pilot, I have decided not to continue watching the show. I didn’t enjoy the story line and, honestly, I was bored up until the end. There is a surprise twist at the end of the episode, but I don’t think that is a good enough reason to continue watching a show that I know I won’t enjoy.
There is a lot of action in the show, which I usually enjoy, but again not a good enough reason to keep watching. I personally don’t want to watch a show that portrays someone using someone else to do their dirty work. It isn’t appealing to me.
