Leaving Manhattan for Hooterville

For no reason, really. The intro to the long-running sitcom Green Acres from 1966.

Seems as if they could have reached a compromise -- just go to Hooterville on the weekends or something. You have to question how happy their marriage was. Sure is fun to over-analyze old sitcoms!

would we have really liked oliver douglas and his eurotrash wife lisa? wall street yunnie moving upstate to open an organic farm and boring the locals with all of those endless monologues?
me thinks not. within weeks Lisa would have taken up with Ebb and Mr Haney would be supplying her new meth habit.
I'd like the CW network to try remaking this one........

Ha! Lisa and Ebb totally had something going on. And I wonder what the locals REALLY thought of Oliver doing farm chores in expensive suits...?
