"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
One of the interesting things about this show is that it marked the beginning of an interesting pattern for Megan Gallagher: she got fired off a popular show. Happened again on China Beach. Happened again on Millennium. Somebody needs to investigate or interview her to find out what's up. I think she holds some kind of record here...there has to be a reason why a talented actress like her, certainly easy on the eyes, gets bounced unceremoniously off three different shows, and that's just the ones about which I know. She seems to work pretty regularly, so it doesn't seem like she's a pariah - and yet there's still a pattern here. There's got to be something to this. Anybody know anything?
