Still Remember Seeing The Pilot
23 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm really bored so I feel the need to write a review of the pilot episode I saw when it originally aired way back in 1986.

This series was obviously a rehash of 'The Beverly Hillbillies' with a fish out of water scenario.

The premise: Two elderly grizzle impoverished rednecks have nothing better to do than joke about killing themselves when Loni Anderson arrives as one of their long lost daughter or granddaughters.

Anderson has hit it big time as a showgirl gold digger and married a Beverly Hills billionaire. After a brief marriage she's become a mega rich widow and come to rescue her grizzel father or grandfather and his friend from a life of poverty.

The troubles in paradise come from the late husband's family headed by villain James Cromwell. ('Babe') The fact that I can still remember the plot after all these years means it was either really good or really bad. But I honestly cannot remember which.
