Dick and Paula Hollister are a witty, sophisticated couple living in New York City. Dick is a comic-book artist who has become well-known for creating a superhero called Jetman, which has been turned into a TV show starring egocentric actor Oscar North. Written by

The character, Oscar North was openly used as the pattern for Ted Baxter on the Mary Tyler Moore, and He & She star, Jack Cassidy played Ted's brother, Hal, in one episode, 'Cover Boy' (1971)_. See more »
You did it again, you opened the door.

We're not back home. This is not a small town where everybody loves everybody so you can open the door, this is a big city where everybody hates everybody, so you can't open the door. If everybody loved everybody, then this wouldn't be a big city, it would be a small town. Then you can open the door.
But this is Mr. Simpson, I met him yesterday. I said who was it & he said, 'Mr. Simpson' & sure enough, there he was, Mr. Simpson.

This vehicle had strong writing and top talents in all departments. The real life husband & wife Richard Benjamin & Paula Prentiss definitely have a chemistry that showed in this series. Arne Sultan, a vet of the Get Smart series showed he could do well in this series too. The question is what happened? CBS had so many good shows in 1967 that this one got lost in the shuffle. It is a shame as this was one of several shows that should have succeeded. I particularly remember the handy man being very funny but it was the sophistication of the show that made it funny.
As far as attraction, Paul Prentiss is at her best in this show. Years later when I saw her in the Stepford Wives, it was this show that made me remember who she was and how talented she was. I wish she had done more stuff in her career as besides being funny, she is by far one of the most attractive women doing comedy ever.
The Hollisters lived in a Manhatten apartment set that looks like the same place Mary Richards used as an apartment on Mary Tyler Moore on CBS later. Dick Hollister, creator of comic hero JetMan and his lovely, talented wife live a Ricardo style of life with Paula doing some great physical comedy during the all too brief one season CBS ran this.
Jack Cassidy(Jet Man) is near the top of his career and the perfect foil here. What is interesting with the late actor is that in spite of having a very large ego, the body of work considered career by Jack is not all that good. Cassidy is at his best on this show.
I often think the Nielsen families back then were pretty inaccurate. It seems like all my friends & I were watching this show. Too bad those Nielson folks never did, they missed another good one here.
