"The Millionaire" meets "The Odd Couple" meets "Fantasy Island"
I'm not sure why my childhood memories of this show are so vivid; something about it must have made an impression on me. Ben Murphy (of "Alias Smith and Jones" fame - "Mystery Science Theater 3000" fans will recognize him from the "Riding With Death" episode) played Patrick Flaherty, a representative of the Intersweep Bank Lottery. He was the guy they sent out to tell people they'd won and deliver the checks. The IRS assigned one of their agents, Eric Rush, to travel with him and advise people about tax arrangements for their winnings (all he ever seemed to actually DO was hand out business cards.) Every week there was a new winner, and the show would go into how their newfound wealth changed their lives. Usually Flaherty and Rush got caught up in the winners' adventures. I guess it was like an updated version of the older show, "The Millionaire." There was a lot of "Odd Couple" style personality clash between the button-down IRS agent and the freewheeling lottery employee. I remember thinking at the time that they were both handsome guys, and I enjoyed the show a lot.
