We Got It Made (1983)

We Got It Made produced enough episodes for syndication, but I haven't seen it anywhere but youtube.

What do you think of this series?

I worked with Copley in a television movie called "In The Line of Duty - The FBI Murders." Genuinely a sweet person with a little talent.

Tom Villard died from AIDS.

Was it a highbrow Odd Couple??

I’ve been watching reruns of THE $10,000 PYRAMID and its variations. Tom Villard was one of the celebrity guests and was a very good player.

Poor Tom Villard. He seemed like such a sweet guy. That show was terrible but I loved it as a kid. WHET Terri Copely?

It didn't "produce enough episodes for syndication" — it ran for one season on NBC in '83-'84 and was revived for syndication for an additional single season.

It was a piece of shit.

It was part of NBC's "piece of shit" season which included such gems as Manimal, Mr. Smith and Jennifer Slept Here.

"We Got It Made is an American sitcom that aired on NBC from September 8, 1983 until March 10, 1984, and in first-run syndication from September 11, 1987 until March 30, 1988."

It was meant to be a ripoff of Three's Company but there was no John Ritter or even Joyce. Matt McCoy lives in my neighborhood and he's a nice guy. Family man.

Matt McCoy did an erotic thriller with Ronn Moss's first wife.

Tom Villard and I were roommates in New York before he moved to LA. Ironically, vis-a-vis the character he plays in this show, he was the biggest neat freak I ever met. Felix Unger kept Tom's picture on his nightstand. That's how much of a cleanosaurus he was. He expected me to do a complete deep clean of the toilet every time I used it. I had to move out. He was a nice guy, but I couldn't live like that.

This show must have been on during a particularly influential moment in my life because it’s always stuck with me despite being terrible. Bonnie Urseth was robbed of a long career!

Teri Copley tried to get on the lucrative poster trend which had a contractual royalty on every poster sold that Farrah Fawcett started and Heather Thomas continued into the 80s, but this one never took off,

R16 Goodness, all that and he still got AIDS.

by Anonymousreply 20Last Monday at 1:04 PM

R18, judging by that shot, it's easy to see why she flopped. Simply being pretty and smiling for the camera isn't going to seal the deal. You have to exude a fun, lively or sexy personality. But in that poster she looks unsure of herself, and in every other photo I've seen of her during this period, she has that same bland smile and dead eyes.

In the pilot and opening, there's a shot simply of Teri's boobs.

You got to give Teri credit for throwing one out there for all the straight guys into feet at R18

She needed to do a poster like Edy Williams did.

The title should have been We Got It MAID. They writers couldn't even work the double meaning into the title when it was blatantly obvious.

Farrah Fawcett's poster achieved cult status in the 70s on the wall in "Saturday Night Fever" while 80s poster queen Heather Thomas was pinned up in "Sixteen Candles."

R9 What R12 said.

She loves the 700 Club now (also that TBN show) & wasn't so kind talking about WGIM or its cast when interviewed.

Chris Mayer even did the 700 Club route back in the 90s but she did it first..

I hate his AARP insurance commercial where he is shown awkwardly talking to a black woman while driving.

'No, YOU get out of here!'

Oh, please.

by Anonymousreply 32Last Tuesday at 9:45 PM

R29, I felt bad for him back during that time. IIRC, he talked about how he had to take any part he could get just to keep his insurance, which he needed in order to buy his medication.

by Anonymousreply 33Last Tuesday at 10:27 PM

Odd that Villard would be that obsessive about keeping a clean house yet have no problem taking raw, anonymous and diseased cock in his bare orifices until he contracted a deadly disease.

Strange.

by Anonymousreply 34Last Tuesday at 10:34 PM

Tom Villard was born in 1953, which means that if he first had gay sex at 18, it was 1971.

You can't blame him for not predicting AIDS in the decade-plus before scientists did.

I remember Stefanie Kramer left before the first season finished in her supporting role and got Hunter.

R34 and r35, he was a little compulsive about cock, maybe. The morning after I moved in, he had me fuck him in the ass "so we can get that out of the way." And we never had sex again. But it was 1975, and although it was the first time I'd ever fucked a guy in the ass, I would soon learn sex, of whatever sort and in whatever position, was so common and so available after all our collective years in the closet, it was the gay version of shaking hands.

There was no concept of sex equaling a deadly disease. That was years in the future. The sixth Christopher Street Day Liberation Parade would happen that year. Most men had annoyingly short hair and Disney Dog moustaches (and maybe a beard). People walked around the Upper West Side, the Village, and much of the rest of Manhattan, in what seemed like a denim uniform.

It was such a free and easy time. You would have gotten laughed back to your little corner of Flyoverstan had you suggested any sort of disease besides the eminently curable things you could get treated at the gay clinic in Chelsea. Certainly no one imagined a disease that would kill us.

He was horrible as Dorothy's boss and then the Girls' roommate in "paradise".

To the poster who fucked Villard in his ass raw, how was he? The cock?

Matt McCoy was hilarious as the imprisoned lawyer on Silicon Valley a few years ago.

It's funny to me how Teri has such an 80s look--not her clothes and hair but her actual face. She and Samantha Fox had a very 80s sexy thing happening that maybe only Pam Anderson was able to bring into the 90s. Who's sexy to straight guys in 2020? Kristen Stewart?
