an underrated sitcom from the 90s

Coach is a long running 90s sitcom that lasted 9 seasons. But it has gone under the radar some compared to more popular sitcoms from that era like Seinfeld, Friends, and Roseanne. Coach has excellent acting from its core cast of Craig T. Nelson as Hayden Fox, Jerry Van Dyke as Luther Van Dam, Bill Fagerbakke as Dauber Dybinski, and Shelley Fabares as Hayden's long time girlfriend and eventual wife Christine Armstrong. And there are a whole bunch of funny episodes. There is some language and God's name is used in vain too much. There is also premarital sex and talk of one night stands which does not make it suitable for younger children.

This title has:

Too much sex
Too much swearing
