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>

Almost Had It Made
29 April 2001 | by (Collinsport, Maine) – See all my reviews

This show was supposed to be a take-off of Three's Company with two guys living with a girl. The spin was that the guys were opposites, a homage to the Odd Couple with actor Matt McCoy as the uptight handsome lawyer and Tom Villard as the goofy looking space cadet with his head in the clouds. They both had girlfriends played by Stepfanie Kramer (later of Hunter fame) and Bonnie Urseth. Then in walked Teri Copley, a beautiful, vacuous blonde whose personality was even amounts of Marilyn Monroe and Lucille Ball, who they hired to be their live-in maid. The series was to prove how the guys could be loyal to their girls without obsessing about their drop-dead gorgeous maid. This nearly successful show was then ruined by what kills so many first time shows: tampering. Out went McCoy, Kramer and Urseth, leaving Copley and Villard with another idiot roommate to suffer through first-run syndication. This show was supposed to be a break-out success for Teri Copley, but instead it became another example of another really bad example of how not to ruin a series!
