Silver’s ode to the counterculture alternative weeklies that sprung up across the US in the 1960s depicts how the newspapers struggled to maintain their financial solvency while staying on mission in the 1970s. The journalists, photographers, and office staff of the (fictional) Boston weekly, The Back Bay Mainline, are unflinchingly depicted in seriocomic episodes that show how they spend their time exploring romantic dalliances and plotting their escape to greener pastures. Along with Heard, Crouse, and Goldblum, the cavalcade of future stars is impressive, and includes Bruno Kirby, Joe Morton, Jill Eikenberry, and a scene-stealing turn from Marilu Henner as a stripper with a heart of gold.
