Buying real estate
4 December 2019 | by rwzimdpaSee all my reviews

The Homeowners Association in Mission Estates seeks to limit the admission of new neighbors to just the "right people" without violating legal standards. As real estate brokers, Gordon & Smith show the house to the Piersons within view of Brad Bowman, who predictably acts to set up a board meeting to block the sale. The back story, however, would have interested me more. Did the cast, including Michael Landon, and the script writer have any discussions about who was to read the Riot Act, about the contents of the Riot Act, about the practice changing names for cosmetic purposes, and about the practice of living a double life?
