Pointless Nonsense

Posted in tv by Bill on September 12, 2013

backinthegameBack in the Game is an ABC comedy that premieres Wednesday 9/25, and the pilot is on hulu here. It stars Maggie Lawson from Psych as a sort of grown-up Tatum O’Neal from Bad News Bears, and James Caan as her father a sort of even older Walter Matthau from Bad News Bears. Her kid wants to play little league to impress some girl but he sucks and doesn’t make the team. So Maggie Lawson commits what in TV is “standing up for disrespected women” but what in real life is “assault with a deadly weapon” in order to create a new team full of the rejected kids which she will coach. The girl from the british Being Human plays some other mom who is old-seeming and it’s weird because the actress is only 28. But Maggie Lawson is totally cute, James Caan playing a cranky old asshole should be pretty entertaining, and I don’t totally hate the kid actor. So I’ll stick around for at least a couple more episodes.
