4.0 out of 5 stars The Second Sitcom Begins 18 Mar 2008
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
In 1982, Bob Newhart returned to TV with his second sitcom. In my mind, this show is even better then his first, although it got off to a slow start.

Dick Loudon (Bob Newhart) is the author of multiple how to books and travel guides. He's always dreamed of restoring an inn. Together with his wife Joanna (Mary Frann), he decides now is the time. So they buy the Stratford Inn in Vermont and go about restoring it and turning it into a bed and breakfast. Along with the inn, they get caretaker George Utley (Tom Poston). George is a bit dim and simple, but he's truly a lovable guy. They also hire Leslie Vanderkellen (Jennifer Holmes) as their maid. Unfortunately, their next door neighbor latches on to them as well. Kirk Devane (Steven Kampmann) runs the Minutemen Cafe and has the bad habit of lying about everything.

Now those familiar with the show are probably already scratching their heads at some of the cast. The show was still finding itself in the first couple of seasons, so the characters everyone associates with this sitcom aren't all here yet. Larry, Darryl, and Darryl do show up for two guest shots (and they are both great) and Leslie's cousin Stephanie (Julia Duffy) does show up for one episode as well. She's not quite the stuck up snob we'd love starting next season, but it's not a big stretch to see it in her personality.

I can see why the two characters that were replaced were replaced. It has nothing to do with the actors, everyone on the show is great. But Kirk gets old in a hurry. And Leslie, while a wonderful character, isn't that funny.

Having said that, there are some truly great moments here. The Loudons try to deal with a skeleton in their basement.

4.0 out of 5 stars Hi Bob! 28 July 2005
By Mark Baker TOP 500 REVIEWER
The 70's brought a lot of classic sit-coms. Among them is this one, the first to star Bob Newhart.
In this show, he stars as Dr. Bob Hartley, a psychologist with a successful practice in Chicago. He has a mostly happy home life with his wife Emily, a teacher. There's also their neighbor Howard, a navigator for an airline. At the office, Bob must not only deal with his patients, but also secretary Carol and best friend Jerry, an orthodontist.
Of course, the best part of the show is Bob's reactions to the situation around him. He's the master of sarcasm and facial expressions. He can get more laughs with a look then any comedians I've seen.
On the down side, like many shows, this one is still developing. This is most obvious by throwing the pilot in as the ninth episode. I had a hard time figuring out what Emily teaches for sure. Some episodes she's a sub, some she has a regular class. And there's the sad case of Margaret, a neighbor who vanished half way through the season.
This set will delight fans of the series. All 24 episodes are compiled on three double-sided DVD's. With only four episodes per side, they look and sound sharp, even if the sound is only mono. Unfortunately, there aren't any extras, but that looks like it will change with the next season release.
I'll admit to being a bigger fan of Newhart then of this show. Even so, I can't help but find this show charming and funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars This program is addictive 16 Nov 2005
By bernie VINE VOICE
Whether this is your first time or you are purchasing old times, this series is a lot of fun to watch and afterwards speculate on what the outcome would be. Many short programs have created a situation and solve it all in the span of the episode. Where as the Bob Newhart show many times steps right into the middle and does not necessarily wrap up all the loose end.

I am not convincing that the episodes are in the correct order. It seems strange that Fly the unfriendly skies would be the first episode as it does not really introduce the characters or give much of a background. I also notice that Suzanne Pleshette's hair style keeps changing back and forth.

Something strange that I have not been able to figure out is why every time Bob comes home and Margaret Hoover (Patricia Smith) is just leaving he just says "Hello Margaret" in a deadpan voice without looking at her.

One of the main things that add to the viewing comedy is the nuances and glances each character gives each other.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not so much a review, as an update 5 Nov 2013
After a long (very long) wait, season 2 will soon be available (at last!). Shout! Factory has acquired the DVD rights to the show and will be releasing the second season on February 11th 2014. This is great news for all fans of the series - let's hope they are able to release the remaining seasons in short order.
