Cold War borscht, lukewarm at best
6 January 2013 | by (Minnesooooooooota) – See all my reviews

This was an attempt at a Cold War sitcom that fell flat. Phyl(lis) is a young American athlete who falls in love with Mikhy (Mikhail), an athlete from the then-Soviet Union, who defects in order to live with Phyl and her family. It's a set-up for lots of bad fish-out-of-water jokes, along with a cute-and-cuddly KGB agent (Michael Pataki) who follows Mikhy in hopes of getting him back to the Soviet Union.

The only reason why I recall this at all is because I attended one of the shows in 1979 when they were filmed. We laughed dutifully, but even as teenagers at the time, we easily predicted this would go nowhere. When it actually made it onto TV in 1980, it had to have been about the same time that Jimmy Carter had announced a boycott of the Moscow Olympics over the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. It made the already-ridiculous premise even more absurd.
