Storyline

In this short-lived sitcom, former studio executive Linda Phillips began bringing the same zeal pushing costly houses for Juan Verde Real Estate. Linda's husband Richard was a professional pianist at Jasper's, but left the hangout - and his wife - by mid-season. Laura Kelly, separated from mystery writer Ben Coleman, also quit catering and became an apprentice agent. Among Linda's eccentric co-workers were Ted Nichols, her main rival; Scott Babylon, a talented impressionist; Margo Van Meter, the sassy, man-hungry secretary; and Roger McSwain, the manager of Juan Verde Real Estate.

Open House was a good attempt to remake the series, "Duet." On that series, Mary Page Kellar was the star and Allison La Placa was the co-star, but in this series La Placa took star billing and Kellar became the co-star. The series, however, had very little going with it as it seemed to recreate all the same material used up on other shows, such as the conventional character losing all his money in Las Vegas, guest appearances by stars of the day and friends going all out to screw each other. Even with the strong lead-in from Married With Children, this show had the dubious honor of proving nothing could hold up the Fox Sunday schedule in a time slot that has killed more shows than unwanted kittens. I caught this series toward the end, but the only episode that I consider worth remembering starred Facts of Life cutie Sherrie Krenn as a drop-dead gorgeous babe. Except for one fairly amusing two-parter, there is nothing else worth remembering in this limited twenty-four episode run.
