Synopsis by Hal Erickson
The opening episode of Green Acres begins in the form of a "person-to-person" TV interview, as successful attorney Oliver Wendell Douglas (Eddie Albert) tells moderator John Daly of his plans to move out of his fashionable Manhattan penthouse apartment and into a farm in the faraway town of Hooterville. Oliver's sophisticated wife Lisa (Eva Gabor) is appalled by her husband's plans, as is Mr. Douglas' imperious mother (Eleanor Audley). Nothing, however, will dissuade Oliver from fulfilling his lifelong dream -- until he gets a good look at the dilapidated farm that he has purchased! This is the only Green Acres episode not directed by Richard L. Bare.
