WATCH: 2nd Episode of Tom Brady’s New Facebook Documentary

The second installment in a six-part documentary series delving into the personal life of New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady was released on Facebook on Sunday.

"Tom vs Time," filmed by Gotham Chopra for Facebook's video platform, Facebook Watch, focuses on the star quarterback preparing for the 2017 season, exploring his battle against time on the gridiron and how he balances his personal life.

The second episode focuses primarily on the work Brady puts in to get ready for games and the hours and hours he spends watching game film.

"I watch tape all day long," he said.

The documentary shows Brady watching his first Super Bowl win over the St. Louis Rams, and then reliving a more painful memory, the 2008 Super Bowl loss to the New York Giants.

"This one's still painful he says," tears appearing to come to his eyes. "I'll never let go of these losses. That sour taste is too deep." 

Brady also appears to confirm rumors that he plans on playing until he's at least 45 years old.

During a throwing session with quarterback guru Tom House, House asks Brady, "And you want to do this till you're 45?"

"Yeah," Brady responds.

"Age is a state of mind," House replies.

"Yeah, I don't give a (expletive)," says Brady.

The episode's remaining release schedule is as follows: episode three on Tuesday, Jan. 30; episode four on Thursday, Feb. 1; episode five on Sunday, Feb. 4. The release date for the sixth and final episode has not been disclosed yet.

In announcing the project, Brady said he has been thinking about doing something like this for a long time, and the opportunity came up to partner with Facebook and Chopra.

"I think we captured something special in this and I am proud of the entire team of people who worked hard to make it happen," he said. "The docu-series is intimate, in-depth and more personal than anything I've released on my social channels, so I think it will be a great way of extending my reach to people on Facebook Watch."

Chopra said the goal of the project "was to understand the anatomy of that greatness" Brady has exhibited on the field over the past 18 seasons.

The Patriots will play the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII on Sunday, Feb. 4 at the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis as the team continues its quest for a sixth Super Bowl championship.
