First and Ten --- Play it again!!
4 April 2005 | by (Rice, TX) – See all my reviews

"1st and Ten" was to Football what "Major League" was to Baseball. The closest thing I've seen to it since has been Arliss, which had its moments but just wasn't quite as funny as 1st and Ten. I really loved the show. It's definitely in my top ten of all time shows. (I'd still have them on tape if I had switched over my old BETA tapes to VHS in time).

Granted, it was a series, but so what?! It wasn't censored! It was a really funny show, cleverly written, with some great actors, as well as having the professionals popping in.

It would be so nice if it was out on DVD, or at least re-run on HBO... or any non-censored channel.
