Never Given a Fair Chance
30 August 2007 | by (Baltimore, MD) – See all my reviews

I think that this program was a summer replacement that only aired for a few (or possibly just one) episodes. I don't think I ever saw anything more than the first episode. I do remember that me and my family all liked it very much.

The premise is that Hank Knight (Jack Warden) and Everett Daye (Mason Adams) were a radio comedy team in the fifties. They had a falling out and hadn't spoken to one another for many years. Flash forward to present day: A radio station is trying to launch a program which will reunite them, only the two of them still resent one another and have very bruised egos. Their gradual reconciliation is the crux of the show.

The plot is very similar to that of "The Sunshine Boys," and the humor which Knight and Daye use on their radio show is quite reminiscent of the comedy team, Bob and Ray.

The most memorable aspect of the show to me was the open credits. It was a montage of old photographs of the team throughout their career. The initial photos show the two men performing for the radio and it is clear that they are good friends and quite happy with one another. As time progresses, though, they begin looking tenser and tenser, and the final photograph shows one of them attacking the other one in the middle of a radio studio. All the while, the song, "Night and Day" is playing in the background. It was a really funny way to open the show. I wish the show had been given more of a chance.
