Follows three life-long friends who comprise a beer league bowling team called the 'Thunderballs'. The show chronicles their efforts to balance their battle for supremacy at the lanes with their crazy personal and family lives.
This show was much better when it was on the BBC and titled The Worst Week of My Life.
Stephanie Weir and Wendy Malick should certainly be credited with being the only saving grace this show, but esp in Stephanie's case, being the funniest part of the show.
The show certainly has the ingredients of a hit with a great cast. While the Americanized version of another British sitcom, The Office, translated well, that has largely been because past the pilot, they have pretty much made the show their own, and not relied solely on the British show's format. This show needs to do the same thing.
The Worst Week of My Life was a great BBC series. Big Day should grow up, and have it's big day and start walking on it's own.
