  • Season opener a disappointment.

    2.0
    As the season 2 opener, it was a letdown. Viewers were probably wondering where Pam was in this episode, and if I recall correctly from the DVD interviews, she was pregnant for part of season 2.



    The story of Ralph joining the California Stars baseball team is quite a stretch, considering the baseball season had only 3 games left. Major plot questions such as: How could Maxwell get a on the fly tryout so quickly? Why didn't Ralph ever think that this was an abuse of the suit? Wouldn't the press try an investigate the new phenom? Why was Maxwell so dumb concerning the contract negotiation?



    One note: an early appearance from Markie Post (Night Court). Anyway, not a promising start to season 2.moreless

    • (to Ralph as he halographs in on the thug who dropped it.)
      Bill: Ralph that's disgusting! Don't eat that......I'll buy you a hot dog!

  • NOTES (2)

    • This episode wasn't originally set to be the season opener. ABC had just finished broadcasting the World Series and decided that this episode would probably gain some additional viewers. The 2nd episode of this season was intended to be the season opener.

    • Musician Stephen Geyer wrote the original song "The Game Goes On" for this episode. Stephen J. Cannell has said it was his favorite among all of Geyer's musical contributions to the show.
