"Slap" Maxwell is a sportswriter of the old-school--hard-working, uncompromised. Unfortunately, his type of writing doesn't fit well in the modern world. His wife wants to discover her own talents, which baffles Slap (almost as much as his editor's bizarre metaphors). Slap only makes things worse by starting an affair with a young news writer. Oh, and his only son turns out to have absolutely no talent as a writer or sports fan, despite Slap's dreams.Written by
yes I care!! I remember this show and it was great. a crime there is not DVD release with some nice special features for the fans(are there any except me and the other guy who posted?) if I remember correctly the lead-in to this show was a show called "hooperman" which was a great show starring the late, great john ritter in a seldom seen dramatic role(he was great in it too) I can't imagine why where is not DVD release for these. I guess there is some silliness with the "rights" and so forth. I would gladly pay to get these shows on DVD. I hope the studios wake up and start getting some of the great stuff that has been neglected out on DVD soon! ahh well, wish I could see them again, it has been so long an they seem forgotten. too bad.
