There's always something funny about watching a fish live on land - people who just don't seem to fit in, yet rise above their surroundings. It could be the most naive country boy ever, recruited by the Marines. Or it could be an Eastern European heiress married to a Harvard Attorney, choosing to live on a God-forsaken farm. Or it could be the poorest of poor, suddenly finding wealth, and having no idea how to handle it.
When The Beverly Hillbillies was running, it reminded me of a similar show: The Second Hundred Years. TSHY never made it, because it tried to compete with perfection in The Beverly Hillbillies.
