This is impossible to find, and, honestly, I am bitter about that, I loved this show when I was a little kid.
And shows like this need to make a comeback, it's from an era where comedy could still be sophomoric, stupid, childish, and fun. Today it seems that comedy is either a political statement that the audiance is supposed to laugh at not because it's funny, but just to signal that they are in the same tribe...or references that stopped having a punchline and are only asking you to recall something from the past...
...and none of that works for me. 1st & 10 had from highbrow to Eskimo pee jokes and all the stops in between. But it was allowed to back then, it was an era where, with comedy, anything goes. And it was made in an era where HBO ruled comedy and not the dramatic series.
Unfortunately a lot of the jokes do reference the culture and politics of the day, so it comes with a bit of an aged feel to it.
Beyond that, it's one of the rare instances where football and not baseball gets the good comedic showing.
