"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
If anyone cares I have this show on VHS. A half hour sitcom sans laugh track it played to the darker side of comedy. Slap is Dabney Coleman and if you're a fan of his you already know of this show. He's a sportswriter at a newspaper, bitter and cynical but with the heart of gold. Notably Megan Gallagher, better known (by me at least) as Larry Sanders' wife in "The Larry Sanders Show". Her and Bill Cobb were the only other faces I could put a fix on. Mostly seldom seem, gone forevers and unknowns but still a more than interesting show. I remember this being a semi-popular show so I really don't understand the lack of show info here. I wonder if the old tvtome.com would have had more info. Hmmmmm. Does anyone care?
