Soft shift- Is trans bad??


I was out Sunday getting into the car, and after a hard takeoff the trans was shifting very lazy. Checked TV cable and it was properly adjusted and not broken or anything. The car drives and shifts into all gears, but it's like the TV cable is not connected, so very slow shift. Wondering if anyone knows if there is a fix for this or if the trans needs to come out.

Anything internal that could be fixed by dropping the pan?
In addition to a pressure test, dropping the pan would be a good way to, 1 change the fluid and filter. 2 see what's there. 3 check to see if the filter seal is fubar. A hard launch may have dislodged the filter, and the pump is sucking air.
