Editorial Reviews

Product Description


Bob Newhart returns as successful Chicago psychologist Dr. Robert Hartley in the second season of this hilarious sitcom from the '70s. A firm believer in group therapy, the good doctor continues to try to help his regular, if somewhat dysfunctional, patients sort out their oftentimes weird and wacky problems.

3-DISC SET INCLUDES: All 24 Season Two episodes, Audio commentary on selected episodes, & All-new "Making-of" featurette.

In its sophomore season, The Bob Newhart Show became an integral part of CBS's phenomenal Stay Home Saturday lineup of now-immortal shows that included All in the Family, The Mary Tyler Moore Show and The Carol Burnett Show. Audiences were initially slow to pick up on Bob, but by its second season, the show was on a roll, and enjoyed the highest ratings of its six-year run.

with Bob Newhart:

or low bandwidth
The season-opening episode, "Last TV Show," in which Chicago psychologist Bob reluctantly, and regretfully, allows one of his group-therapy sessions to be filmed for television, is a series classic that showcases Newhart's gifts as a great reactive comic actor. The Bob Newhart Show mined brilliant character-based comedy from Bob's interactions with his patients (including the supremely neurotic Mr. Carlin, indelibly portrayed by Jack Riley), his best friend, womanizing dentist Jerry (Peter Bonerz), his wisecracking receptionist Carol (Macia Wallace), his intrusive neighbor Howard, a divorced airline pilot (Bill Daily), and, of course, his usually level-headed schoolteacher wife of five years, Emily (Suzanne Pleschette). Among her finest half-hours are "Mister Emily Hartley," in which Bob discovers that Emily's I.Q. is higher than his, and "The Modernization of Emily," in which Emily embarks on a disastrous youth kick after she meets a former student who is now in college. Through it all, the pitch-perfect writing keeps it real and in perfect sync with Newhart's understated style. In addition to the wonderful ensemble, this second season is brightened by several "before they were famous" appearances, by, among others, Teri Garr ("Confessions of an Orthodontist"), a pre-Fonzie Henry Winkler ("Clink Shrink"), Howard Hesseman ("The Jobless Corps"), and Raul Julia ("Oh, Brother"). Incredibly, The Bob Newhart Show never won an Emmy, but it endures as one of TV's class acts. --Donald Liebenson

5.0 out of 5 stars Where is it? October 15, 2009
Season one has been out for quite some time now, so what is causing the delay for season 2? I remember the later seasons with Stephanie and Peter and am awaiting the chance to relive one of TV's funnier sitcoms, but I continue to wait. As TV DVD's are really a license to print money and gravy for the companies (particularly with these old shows), what on earth is the delay for? Powers that be, please release not only season 2, but the entire series. Thank you!

5.0 out of 5 stars YAY! Bob's 2nd Season on DVD! August 11, 2005
By Lulu
If you're reading this, it's probably because you already love one of the top sitcoms of the 1970s, The Bob Newhart Show, so I won't wax poetic about the greatness of the program. Instead, I'll let you know that this was the 1973-1974 season, and it consists of the following episodes:

THE LAST TV SHOW Bob's group has a televised session. A classic!
MOTEL A pretty girl is after Bob.
BACKLASH Bob throws his back out just before a planned Mexican vacation.
SOMEBODY DOWN HERE LIKES ME A reverend takes Bob's advice...and it backfires.
EMILY IN FOR CAROL Emily fills in for Carol, and Bob's not happy about it.
HAVE YOU MET MISS DIETZ? Jerry and Howard both date the same woman.
OLD MAN RIVERS Carol dates her much older doctor.
MR. EMILY HARTLEY Bob feels inferior when he finds Emily's IQ is higher than his.
MUTINY ON THE HARTLEY Bob raises his rates, and his patients revolt.
I'M OK, YOU'RE OK, SO WHAT'S WRONG? Emily wants to see a marriage counselor.
FIT, FAT, AND 41 Bob goes on a diet.
BLUES FOR MR. BORDEN Howard is depressed by news of his son's new "uncle."
MY WIFE BELONGS TO DADDY Bob feels he can't measure up to Emily's dad.
T.S. ELLIOTT Mr. (Elliott) Carlin dates Carol.
I'M DREAMING OF A SLIGHT CHRISTMAS It's Christmas Eve, and Bob is trapped in his office when the power goes out.
OH, BROTHER Jerry's brother shows up and takes over Jerry's life.
THE MODERNIZATION OF EMILY Emily feels old and decides to update her image. Yes, this is the classic "T-shirt with iron-on decal of lips and a cigarette" episode; aka: Chicken on a Stick.
THE JOBLESS CORPS Howard becomes Bob's patient after he loses his job.
CLINK SHRINK Bob's new patient is a parolee.

5.0 out of 5 stars When we will we get the 2nd season and the rest? June 30, 2010
Probably my favorite comedy series and I have been waiting a long time to buy not only the second season but the whole series. What is the hold up? I have the first season and have enjoyed watching it, I especially love the intro and the theme song. It takes me back to a simpler time in a small town with colorful characters. I will definitely be buying when they come out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Better Than The First Season! June 30, 2006
By Dave_42
As funny as the first season was, the second season (1973-1974) of "The Bob Newhart Show" is even more hilarious. This show thrived on a great ensemble cast and great writing, and after the first season all the minor hiccups had been worked out. It is difficult to believe that this show not only never won any Emmy Awards, but was never even nominated for any.

Bob's patients play a bigger role this season, and in no episode is that more apparent than the first show of the season called "Last TV Show", in which his group talks him into holding one of their sessions on Television. They are also very funny in "Mutiny on the Hartley" when they try to continue without Bob after he raises his rates. Bob's sister Ellen (Pat Finley) makes her first appearance near the end of the season in "A Love Story" where she is engaged to be married until Howard enters her life.

There are numerous great episodes this season beyond those I have already mentioned, such as "Mister Emily Hartley" where an IQ test shows that Emily's is significantly higher than Bob's, "T. S. Elliot" where Mr. Carlin takes Carol out on a Date (Shirley O'Hara's first appearance as Debbie occurs in this episode), and "By The Way...You're Fired" where Carol's new romance interferes with her job duties. As with the first season there are 24 episodes, but in this season they are smoother and more consistently funny.

There are many well known guest stars in this season. Teri Garr plays Miss Brennan, a receptionist. Mariette Hartley plays Marilyn Dietz who is fought over by Howard and Jerry after Emily sets them both up with her. Katherine Helmond plays Dr. Webster, a marriage counselor that Bob and Emily go to when their marriage seems to be stuck in a rut.

5.0 out of 5 stars We are going about this all wrong. July 19, 2010
Instead of belly aching to each other about this issue since 2007, we should all be contacting the imbeciles at 20th Century Fox Entertainment en masse and boycott all of their other products; until they finally come to the brilliant decision that they should release the remaining seasons. Let them know why you will not buy anything that they have to offer until our demands are met. When they stop making money maybe, just maybe they will listen. Unfortunately the media has always dictated to us what they want us to want. Wake up and get organized!!!! Amazon should spearhead the movement!!! Obviously Amazon has all of our email addresses and the tally of how many people are on the list to be notified when the second season is available. Amazon has the (purchase) power to alert 20th Century that they are making a BIG mistake. If you haven't put your email address on Amazon to be notified for season 2, do it NOW!!! Numbers speak volumes. Money moves mountains.
