Storyline

Set in 1985, high-school graduate David Myers takes a job as an assistant tennis instructor at the predominantly Jewish Red Oaks country club to find out what kind of life he wants for himself. While David makes friends with his tennis supervisor Nash, he inadvertently makes an enemy out of Mr. Getty, the snobbish and arrogant president of the club when David beats him at a grudge tennis match. Meanwhile, David's father Sam is recovering from a heart attack at the hospital in which both he and David's mother Judy flirt with the attractive Korean nurse. David's girlfriend Karen, who works as the aerobics instructor, is persuaded by a sleazy photographer who tries to recruit her to be his model. Also, slacker/stoner parking valet Wheeler tries to pick-up the hot golf instructor Misty. David also learns that the mysterious young woman ogling him is Mr. Getty's daughter. Written by Larry B.

Richard Kind hooked me in the first scene. Nowadays hard to get me laughing out loud, happened a few times thru out this. It's a nice little comedy all the way thru. Pretty predictable, but light comedy that I enjoyed thru the half an hour episode. Pretty predictable where things are going after this first episode, but nevertheless should be a fun ride.

Congrats for Wheeler, played by Oliver Cooper, only had seen him in californication before this, much stronger character.

This reminds me of an 80s blue mountain state with a more "real" tone to it.
