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
Marty McKee <firstname.lastname@example.org>
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 »
This show rocked and was eons before it's time! Kudo's to CBS for having the courage to put it on the air, even if it did have a terrible time slot.
To me, what made this show truly ahead of it's time, not to mention hysterically funny, was the ongoing sub-plot that implied Cassidy's character "offscreen" was gay. My God, what WOULD have happened in the 60's if the fictitious Jetman fans had actually known their beloved super-hero and a man's man was portrayed by a Gay? Some of the best scenes and lines from He and She depicted Poor Richard and his writers always having to keep "Jetman" in the closet, particularly during the mandatory public appearance gigs.
The He and She writers were great at laying it all between the lines for CBS viewers. Exceptionally well written. Jetman's "offscreen" personna was the heart of the show I thought.
Bring it Back!!!!
