Hit & Miss Episode 5 The hand of Paul Abbott was suddenly visible. The brilliant television dramatist didn’t compose the script for Strike & Miss; the series was “created by” your ex. (And as a great admirer, I’d trade quite a number of “created by” Paul Abbotts for the “written by”.) But here ended up being another unparented family, like the one with Shameless that Abbott loosely based on his own chaotic upbringing.

The rest of the actual episode tended to belie your improbable premise. This was the staple plot of an western – the strong stranger who rides into town to safeguard the innocent.
