The casting made this show great.
The lead couple is a study in contrast - a well-matched upperclass couple: a hungarian heiress and a Harvard lawyer.
Add an opportunist traveling salesman who would sell anything that isn't nailed down, and sometimes things nailed down.
Add a County Supervisor who can't speak 5 consecutive words on the same topic.
Add a farm hand with more aspiration than true potential.
Add an elderly childless couple - who adopt a pig to be their son.
Add a general store manager that wears every hat in the city.
Add a female contractor named Ralph.
The combination is so delightful that the PC police hardly notice that the whole show is premised on the husband is acting as chief decision makere for his wife.
