My Favorite Episode to Date
7 August 2019 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a great use of Harry Anderson, Harry the "Hat." A cruel man has been cheating the Coach out of thousands of dollars. Coach is pretty dense and thinks the games have been friendly. Sam needs to find a way to get the money back and sets up a poker game with Harry's help. The neat twists and turns here make this big time fun.
