I was only 11 years old when I watched this, but I remember it being the most "adult" of any of the comedies on television on the time. It was very strongly implied that Tony Franciosa had slept with or was trying to sleep with most of the women who appeared on the show. This was at a time when every other show would explicitly reject the idea that their heroes ever thought about sex. I also remember that the exchanges between Jack Soo and Franciosa were hip and hilarious.
I would love to see it again to see how it holds up. It ran for only one season, I believe 34 episodes. Perhaps, someone will have the good sense to release it along with other series that only lasted for a season. Juliet Prouse and Paula Prentice also had funny relatively adult comedy series that lasted for just a season. It would be nice to put them all together in a single release.
