TV show description:
Set in summertime 1985, this dramedy follows young David Myers (Craig Roberts). He gets a job working at the exclusive New Jersey Red Oaks Country Club between his sophomore and junior years of college.
Understanding that college can have its distractions (though thoroughly disappointed with his son’s grades) father Sam (Richard Kind) encourages David to take the job. His dream is for his son to become an accountant and tells him to make a good impression on the influential crowd as one day he might be doing their taxes.
As the new assistant tennis pro, David is exposed to the strange characters that are the club’s staff and members. On David’s side is his best friend, Wheeler (Oliver Cooper), who also works there, and Nash (Ennis Esmer), the tennis pro of the club. The latter is David’s boss and the self-appointed guru of growing up.
Feared and admired in equal measures is club president Getty (Paul Reiser). When David is invited to play tennis against Getty, he knows that beating Getty could land him a powerful enemy.
David’s problems don’t stop there as he needs to stop his girlfriend Karen (Gage Golightly) from posing nude for ‘amatuer photographer’ Barry (Josh Meyers).

What do you think? Do you like the Red Oaks TV show? Do you think it should be cancelled or renewed for another season?
Just finished this show recently, wish the show had continued. 1985 HS grad, so it really hit home….
Great show and I hope there’s more. I really enjoyed it!
Excellent show, especially for those with a love for the simpler times of the 80’s. The era vibe is brilliantly captured thru the music, clothing, electronics (vhs and cassettes), autos, etc..; subject matter and characters. Shame to cancel this show as many Amazon subscribers know this time well and it’s a treat to revisit it.
Absolutely loved it.
please do a 4th season
Great show, Great cast and best music ever….What a shame it did not go on for more seasons.
