a blue collar worker moves on up to the white collar world!
9 November 2006 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

It's been well over 32 years since I saw this show. I do not remember this series being a really big hit though it made it through a few seasons. It involved a blue collar worker who got moved up to a white collar position. It was funny and it was one of the first sitcoms to successfully cast a minority member in a leading role, long before the Jeffersons "moved on up" to their own show. The one episode I remember is when Arnie's boss announced that he wanted Arnie to throw a surprise birthday party for him. He also specified that it had to be a surprise party, or else, since the boss simply loved surprise parties. How was he supposed to throw a surprise party for his boss when his boss already knew about it in advance, being that he was the one who ordered Arnie to throw the party for him in the first place? Such dilemmas were a part of Arnie's life. I sure would like to see this show again.
