Product Description

The comic genius behind the legendary Rat Pack, and co-star of the original "Ocean’s Eleven," stars in this sparkling sitcom available for the first time on DVD in this exclusive collection authorized by Bishop. The Joey Bishop Show ran from1961-65. The second season marked a new beginning for the series, with new cast members, new characters, and a new premise that revitalized the series, making it a hit with viewers and Bishop fans. Bishop stars as New York talk show host Joey Barnes, whose professional life hilariously collides with his personal life. Abby Dalton joins the series as Joey’s new wife Ellie, with Joe Besser (The Three Stooges) as fussy building superindendent Jillson, and Guy Marks as Joey's conniving manager. Contains 34 episodes, each in "living color," along with vintage archival extras, including the series pilot.

The opening credits are on the set, but they play just once when you load the disc before the episode menu comes up. A bad idea, I agree, and something which should be fixed on any feature releases, but the credits aren't really completely missing.

The series was filmed in B/W for the first season, switched to color film for seasons two and three, and then went back to B/W for the final year when it moved to CBS. I guess they weren't as interested in promoting early color TV as NBC was at the time. The color is a bit faded, but not that bad, and I would bet the color schemes were chosen for how they would appear on B/W sets because very few people had color TVs in 1962!

For 39 shows, I'm happy. This show isn't great but I've enjoyed the first few shows so far. It is all new to me since I wasn't born at the time....

Joey, Joey, Joey-The Joey Bishop Show-is a good representative sit-com from the early 1960s. As a star vehicle for Joey, our favorite son of a gun, it has ups and downs, highs and lows. Joey's role is perfect for him as the talk show host, the boss, although he allows his supporting cast quite a bit of spotlight and laughs. However, Joey offers his deadpan humor superbly for the viewers. Glamorous Abby Dalton brightens up the screen in all her scenes. Joe Besser as Jillson is superlative, with him showcasing his comedic talents, inflecting contrasting humor to Joey's sardonic, subtle style. Guy Marks is outstanding, with his wit, impressions, timing, and physical comedy. Corbett Monica fills Marks' shoes more than adequately. The premise of Joey and Ellie having a baby brings the show down to common sit-com mediocrity, but gives Joey (and his writers) another theme for comedic fodder. It is great to view the shows and see Joey in action, other than in Rat Pack or movie form. Son of a gun!

Being that I appeared in the 29th episode of the GOOD SAMARATIN, where it even explains that the workers at the laundry have a future niece that sings. BUT, the one that shows as the 29th Episode , is not the correct one.

I was only 17 when I appeared in this episode, I sang an Elvis song and an Aria from La Boehme, Musetta's waltz. My experience with the show was a positive for my career but a personally negative one. As somebody also pointed out in a review Joey Bishop was a complex man. When I auditioned for the show , he was very upfront with me and said he really liked my voice, but wanted his writers to come up with a good script and he would let me know. One week later my manager called and told me , I would be on. I liked Joey's up front personality.

The week that I was on was also the week where they would decide if they would renew the Joey Bishop show for another season, he was very nervous. Even while taping he threw me lines I never heard before, so it was difficult to come in with my lines. He was under a lot of presssure. Joey was also not pleased at the response from the audience when I finished the aria. At the end of the show after everyone had gone he admonished me for more than 15 minutes how I did not show enough apreciation toward him at the taping, like hugging him. I was only 17, the directer had to come down and tell him to stop. I was in tears. Perhaps I didnt show enough apreciation, we didnt rehearse it that way and he was a person
that was difficult to read, he always seemed so angry.
That nite he found out he was renewed,being show belonged to Danny Thomas. I didnt get to meet Mr. Thomas as he was in europe, though they all wanted him to meet me.

Joey Bishop & Abby Dalton did a nice job starring in this typical 60's sitcom. I had heard of
this show, but never had actually seen it, until know. The sound & picture are good, colors are
a bit funky...but there okay! My favorite cast member is Joe Besser who played Jillson, the
maintainence man, he lights up the screen whenever he is on...just a consumate comedian,
so wonderful. Buy it if you enjoy a typical 60's sitcom.

I have never heard of this show before (having been born on the same year this season went on the air) but I must say that after taking a chance on it I have fallen in love with it. It has a feel good sixties feeling to it that makes me feel nostalgic. The show ran from 1961 to 65 this been the second season (first in color) which marked a new beginning for the series, with new cast members and hilarious new characters, including the beautiful Abbey Dalton as Joey's wife, Ellie (or as Joey would call her - Texas) and for the first 19 episodes (TOO BAD) the hilarious Guy Marks (from "The Dick Van Dyke" show) You will also see Joe Besser (a one time member of "The Three Stooges"). The only negative (something minor) to this set is that the opening theme intro credits is only played once when you first play the disc, so there are no opening credits at the start of any of the other individual episodes. However, and more important is that all episodes appear to be unedited, running around 24 1/2 to 25 minutes without the intro. The set has 34 color episodes and several special features are included like the pilot episode "Everything Happens To Me" which aired on "Make Room For Daddy" as well as "Meet The Rat Pack" and several of Joey Bishop theatrical trailers. Overall, this was a pretty nicely produced set for what seems to be a wonderful yet forgotten show.
