What an amazing show. I was 11 when this was on and I had to pull every con game imaginable to get to stay up late enough to watch it. Prentiss and Benjamin were great together, having the real chemistry of actual married people (they were and still are, wed). They were funny and a pleasure to watch. Hamilton Camp was hilarious, too, but best of all was Jack Cassidy (father of David and Shaun) as the ultimate Hollywood schnorrer. I loved this and was really upset when it got axed, basically because the show that came on before it was a completely dud. For a while there was talk about reviving it, but it never happened. Produced by David Davis who was one of the geniuses who created the first "Mary Tyler Moore Show", this had much the same flavor. One of the funniest episodes of the latter series was where Jack Cassidy appeared as Ted Knight's ultra-competitive brother. If you ever get the opportunity to see episodes of "He & She", don't pass it up.
