The “Back In the Game” Report

With the Emmys coming up on Sunday, I thought I would share this television review:

If you are a fan of James Caan, the 73-year-old actor who has been brilliant in movies from The Godfather to Elf…like I am.

If you are a fan of Maggie Lawson, the charming Juliet O’Hara on Psych…like I am.

If you are a fan of Lenora Crichlow, who was great as Annie on the BBC series Being Human…like I am.

If you are a baseball fan…like I am.

Then you should be a fan of the new ABC sitcom Back in the Game which centers on Terry Gannon (Lawson), a recently divorced single mother who temporarily moves in with her estranged father, a beer-swilling former baseball player. She reluctantly starts coaching her son’s underdog Little League team and is drawn back into the world of sports she vowed to leave behind.

You should be…but you won’t be.

Having seen the pilot, I can only suggest not sacrifice your viewing on MLB Network when this show premieres on September 25. On the other hand, you might want to see it because I doubt that it will be around too long.
