I know exactly what you mean! The show proved it didn't take itself or its characters seriously, and that made it even funnier! They poked fun at anything, everything, anyone and anyplace. You can really sit down and get a good laugh watching this show, and you don't have to be a rocket scientist to figure out the plot!

This is off the subject but I totally agree. It's probaly not a good thing but I used to love to annoy my sister not too much but just alittle like when she told me to stop humming I'd just go on humming louder. Come to think of it I still do things like that. But any ways to get back on subject I liked how every time Oliver would try to fix up the house something would go wrong like when they were going to do that paint job the wood ende up absorbing the paint.

Green Acres had SUPERB writing, the perfect cast, (I can't picture anyone else playing Lisa, Hank, Oliver, etc) and it was just so surreal that it was hysterical. My entire family, along with myself, love it! (It has become a tradition to watch it together.) When you say "great writing" you probably are thinking of more serious shows and I realize a lot of people think of Green Acres as a silly, country sitcom, but it was so much more than that...it is a true classic, in my book.

I also love how everyone on that show was nuts. Yes, including Oliver, the "straight character." Can you explain to me how someone sane would buy off that junky house, along with everything else Haney tried to sell him, continue farming after years of no success, etc, etc?

I love how surreal it all was - you know just as soon as Oliver figures out he needs something - there is Mr. Haney getting ready to hawk it. You know the phone will stop ringing as soon as Oliver gets to the top of the pole. You know Alf and Ralph will never finish the repairs and paint jobs on the house. It was also funny when they would notice the credits. "Olivah, I need a 'written by' egg!"

Lisa's attempts at cooking were a favorite of mine.
