4.0 out of 5 stars
Good except for english dubbing voices
I had to laugh when I saw the first few initial reviews have the same opinion as I. After the second episode I turned on the subtitles and switched the language to german. I dont know who amazon got the do the voice overs (dubbing) but it sounded like irritating millennial teenagers who do Clifford the dog cartoons or something similar. They could have at least used germans who spoke english with an accent. That would have been more authentic. Anyway I found the series very informative having been a bayern fan for only about 10 years. Good history and explanation of the bayern DNA. No offense to Messi since he had nothing to do with the decision but Lewy was robbed of the "balloon d' BS".

Absolute must watch for any Bayern fan and good entertainment for everyone else
The series is at it's best when it offers a fly-on-the-wall view of the interactions between players, coaches, staff, and management. There's also plenty of commentary from club outsiders, like Guardiola and Klopp for instance. While there are some artificial-seeming moments, they are tolerable and not too frequent.

surreal
As a fan of Bayern since 1976, I see the legends whom I've admired throughtout my life. I see the hustle and bustle behind the scene. I see the clips of games I had watched and enjoyed before like a refresher.
What more do I want?!! I have never given 5 stars in any reviews on principle. Because I beleive there's always room for improvement in anything. This is my 1st, compliments of Amazon to finally producing a show worth watching, the crew who made this show and finally the most important, the FC Bayern Munchen and their fantastic players and legends. :-)

LOVE IT
I love everything Bayern related, but I am amased how this team can be so successful compared to the likes of Liverpool, Madrid, Barcelona, City, and Chelsea with little to no money spent. The mentality behind it is what makes me love this team even more. Even though we only see the players during game time there is so much effort that goes beyond it, to start with CEO, president, Sporting Director, Coaching staff. I loved this series. I wish they go on for another one.

must see for football fans
enjoyed watching it.
for all who don't like the "fake English voices" there is an option on settings to get real german voices which is amazing. you can still have subtitles if your german is not good enough ;)

Fantastic look at this club
I have been looking forward to this doc since it was announced it was being released and I was not disappointed. It was a wonderful look at the club operations and behind the scenes. I loved how open everyone seemed during filming. I feel like it displayed a lot of the history of the club as well, which was really cool to see. As a fan, I guess I don't really think about the business aspect of the club but this doc really showed the struggles and successes that FC Bayern have had. It was really refreshing. I am a Bayern fan, but I think any fan of the game will be able to appreciate and enjoy this series.

Updating my rating
Now that there is a full documentary to watch!

This was AWESOME. I loved it! Have only been watching soccer and Bayern for about three seasons so this filled in some gaps for a "newbie."

I changed the language to German and then got the English subtitles. The "dubbed" version was too much like watching a cartoon. Much better...

Wonderful and unique view of Bayern
This documentary manages to contextualize soo many wonderfully Bayern moments

As Kahn says "it will go on" and the emphasis of this production is on how this legend continues to be a legend and how it became a legend to begin with.

Football clubs come and go but Bayern Munich are relentless. The mentality is passed down from generation to generation and the structure of the club remains traditional while adapting to everything the modern football world throws at them.

My takeaways are as follows
- Alaba was a great connector in the team
- Hansi didn't like the media pressure
- Brazzo smirks a lot and picked Nagelsmann
- Bayern won't pay 150k for an electric curtain 😂

10/10
The creative team that brought this documentary to the world should be proud
