Finding Magic Mike Is the Best Reality Show You're Not Watching

There's a scene in 2015's Magic Mike XXL that feels indelibly consigned to the annals of film history forever. I'm sure you know the one — where our beloved and endearing group of male revue dancers decides to pop a little MDMA while road tripping to a stripping convention in Myrtle Beach. A pit stop at a gas station leads to an impromptu performance for the cashier courtesy of Big Dick Richie (Joe Manganiello) while his friends enthusiastically cheer him on the entire time. It's a moment that isn't merely about admiring the male physique — even if there are plenty of muscle groups on display. The reason this sequence set to Backstreet Boys' "I Want It That Way" feels so incredibly, face-splittingly joyful is because of what it offers up: men rallying around one of their own to embrace his most assured and carefree self, especially because Richie's biggest emotional journey throughout the film involves expressing verbal doubts about whether or not he can even successfully strip anymore. It's that philosophy — one that helps a small group of men rediscover confidence in themselves — that unashamedly threads through the entirety of Season 1 of Finding Magic Mike, the reality competition show executive produced by Channing Tatum and Steven Soderbergh (and hosted by franchise cast member Adam Rodriguez) that premiered in its entirety on HBO Max last month.
