Storyline

Dick is a rising young business executive who life is turned upside down when his younger brother Tom reenters his life.

Trivia

When cable TV channel Nick at Nite pulled this series out of the vault and reran it some time in the 1990s, producer Aaron Spelling received a royalty check for $30. Spelling, by then one of the wealthiest and most successful TV producers in history, wrote: "Now you can understand why I decided to form my own company". See more »

Not their best work - catch their variety show.
31 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I barely remember this show. I remember looking forward to it, because the brothers were good when they did their musical stand-up routines.

This show was OK, but did not make the best use of their talents. It was not particularly popular, and only lasted one season; it appears that the Smothers Brothers were among the folks happy to see it go. Their later variety show format suited them much better.

On the other hand, other than a single episode of Burke's Law, this is the first acting exposure for the brothers, so was probably instrumental in their careers.

The rest of the cast - was there really a 'rest of the cast'? Roland Winters was in less than a third of the episodes. No one else in the credits comes close to that.

Props for the opening cartoon sequence, no biggy, but cute.

Perhaps this has potential for replay on Nickelodeon, but sixties sitcoms seem dated on replay - the pacing is slower, the acting and conversation stilted, the laugh track forced. Never again mainstream.

Try it once, if you've got nothing better to do.
