Storyline

Short-lived sitcom which lived two lives once on NBC and again in syndication. Two Manhattan bachelors, neat-freak attorney David Tucker and unkempt salesman Jay Bostwick, decide to hire a housemaid. Enter Mickey Mackenzie, a stunningly-beautiful 20s-something woman. Despite the fact Mickey (who usually wore T-shirts and jeans when not in various stages of undress) had no previous housekeeping experience, David and Jay hire her on the spot. Jay's girlfriend, Beth, was a kindergarten teacher, while David's girlfriend was Claudia. Claudia left early in the show's NBC run. When the show returned in syndication in 1987, Beth was gone too (her absence was not explained), but David, Jay and Mickey gained new neighbors Max Papavasiolios Sr. and his son, Max Jr. Written by Brian Rathjen <briguy_52732@yahoo.com>

Genius...Absolute Genius
11 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"We Got It Made" could possibly be the BEST sitcom ever made! It's profoundly moving, at times, exciting, frightening, hilarious, but most of all overwhelmingly wonderful. Such drama, passion, and emotional depth has never been seen before on the small screen. I've seen all the episodes at least three times each, and they never fail to amaze me in their greatness. Well-crafted, smartly written, and each and every single performance touches me in a wonderful place. This show is God.

But it would be no where as amazing without the exceptional work of Bonnie Urseth. Never has one performance in a series changed so many lives. Her work is exceptional, bringing the audience through the entire cycle of human emotion. God bless her and "We Got It Made"!
