Storyline

Hayden Fox is the head coach of a university football team, and eats, sleeps and lives football. His partner, however, does not share his passion for the sport, which frequently causes friction in their relationship. While Hayden often fits the stereotype of dumb jock (as do his co-workers Luther and Dauber), he sincerely cares about his friends and family, and tries his best to make things work out.

Coach is the funniest and most enjoyable TV-series there is.
26 April 1999 | by (Madison, WI & Munich, Germany) – See all my reviews

Let me begin by saying that "Coach" is my all-time favorite Sitcom. Wait a minute. Sitcom? This TV-series is actually more than that; it clearly stands out from a vast pool of mediocre comedy-series'. The acting is superb, especially Coach Hayden Fox (Craig T. Nelson; "Poltergeist" et al), who gives a new meaning to the word "obnoxious", and Luther (Jerry Van Dyke; Dick Van Dyke's brother), who is the most lovable fool on earth, make up a sensational combo.

I'd argue that despite its underlying football theme, "Coach" is a show enjoyable for the whole family; the characters are wonderfully scripted and acted so that it's easy to identify with and embrace them. Sit back, relax and join Coach Fox & Co. on their journey.

If you're a cable subscriber, consider yourself lucky and try to catch the repetitions on TVW, for example. Believe me, it's one of the best in TV-comedy history! And it makes addictive.
