Season one was a great start. Season two (1973-1974) seems like they found what works best and even improved. Season three adds many popular people and maintains the tradition of good writing and acting.
Aside from the great acting one thing that makes this program work is that they pick on problems that one could actually face and show how absurd one can get before coming back to earth. There is everything from job loss to weight gain.
On this set of DVDs there are some commentaries; the commentaries are not as well thought put as they could have been, however they do add a dimension to the episodes. I hope they still keep going with the series.
We did learn that somewhere out there is a pilot of Peter Bonerz whom plays Dr. Jerry Robinson plays a more advances psychologist instead of a dentist. This would make a great extra.
Mean time you may recognize some of the actors from other programs.

Have really enjoyed this dvd's of this show.
It was never broadcasted in the UK, so it's been a real treat to watch them now.
Have always been a fan of Bob Newhart, and it's interesting to see how his humour adapts to a sitcom.
Some really interesting ideas, and I look forward to watching the other season's when their released.
If you liked this, would recommend his other series now available called "Newhart".
