Back in the Game

Series Summary
Terry Gannon Jr. was an All-Star softball player until a few curve balls -- a baby, a lost scholarship and a loser husband -- changed everything. After striking out on her own, Terry and her son, Danny, move in with her estranged father: an opinionated, beer-guzzling, former athlete named Terry "The Cannon" Gannon Sr. Despite Terry's desire to keep her son away from the sports-driven lifestyle she had, Danny wants to play Little League. When Danny and several other sports-challenged kids fail to make the team, a wealthy neighbor finances one for the misfits -- a team that Terry reluctantly offers to coach.

  • While this Little League comedy doesn't quite measure up to the big leagues, we shouldn't be surprised if family audiences rally around the team, turning a solid base hit into something potentially worthy of extra innings. show more

  • Caan is perfectly cast here.... As it so often does, it comes down to the writing. I just don’t care. And I just don’t find it funny. show more

  • In this case familiarity breeds more comfort than contempt. Caan and Lawson spark when they spar, Crichlow's Lulu is a delight as is Gluck's Danny. And even Dick, though burdened with far too much sexual innuendo, has a few good moments. show more
