Breaking Away

Show Summary

Sunny-natured Dave Stohler (Shaun Cassidy), sometimes known to his buddies as Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Ravioli, has two passions: bicycle racing and things Neapolitan. Combinations of the two, such as Italian bikes or biking Italians, are best of all. His buddies are Mike (Tom Wiggin), the athletic one; Cyril (Thom Bray), the wry one; and Moocher (Jackie Earle Haley), the practical one who gets physical when anyone calls him "Shorty." As the four high-school grads decide what to do with their lives, only two things are certain: 1) they will stick together; 2) they will frequently collide with the guys on Fraternity Row in their Midwestern college town of Bloomington, Indiana. Dave's parents (Vincent Gardenia and Barbara Barrie) look on with a mixture of love, concern, exasperation and hope.
