A fine show not given a chance by NBC.
"Against the Grain" was a great show, but was mired in a weak NBC Friday Night lineup, and therefore died a slow death. About the trials and tribulations of a high school football coach and his family in Texas, you didn't have to be a football fan to appreciate this show. Great for the family, with the right combination of comedy, drama, and a lesson to be learned. It's a shame a fine program like this gets canned after a half season, and garbage like "Family Matters" lasts for a decade! Furthermore, the girls will like to see a young Ben Affleck, and the guys get to check a out a young Robin Lively!
