Is Lombardi Good for Kids?
Sports-loving children will enjoy the football aspect of the show, even if they may not be familiar with Lombardi’s extensive career. Kids might not go for the off-the-field more mature themes about life ambitions and marital troubles. While at home, Mr. and Mrs. Lombardi are rarely seen without alcoholic drinks in their hands.
