    Pilot was a rocky start, but Back in the Game really shown during the 2nd episode. James Caan and Maggie Lawson make me want to keep watching this show, which I'm sure will continue to please.

    I don’t know if Back in the Game will have a long shelf life, or if it will turn Caan into a prime-time star (like son Scott on “Hawaii Five-O”), but I do think it’s worth a half-hour of your time.

    Caan is perfectly cast here.... As it so often does, it comes down to the writing. I just don’t care. And I just don’t find it funny.

    Nothing groundbreaking, but every so often a sports-themed show is de rigueur
