1980s / Forgotten Sitcom - Phyl and Mikhy
If you remember this short-lived CBS citcom you have a great memory and ought to report to the nearest trivia contest. Phyl and Mikhy was about two athletes (one American and one Soviet). The Soviet, Mikhail Orlov, was a decathlete who defected to the Unites States to marry Phyllis Wilson, a star athlete from Pacific Western University. The show starred Murphy Cross as Phyllis (Phyl) and Rick Lohman as Mikhail (Mikhy). Jack Dodson played the head of the school's alumni association. Michael Pataki played a blundering Soviet consulate official assigned to get Mikhy back to the USSR. It was a typical fish-out-of-water sitcom that played upon Cold War politics and the defector's comical adjustment to life in western society. Only six episodes of Phyl and Mikhy aired, beginning on May 26, 1980 and ending on June 30. The fact that the United States had announced its boycott of the 1980 Moscow Olympics probably made this show even more far-fetched than it already was.
