Editorial Reviews

Bob Newhart returns as Dick Loudon, the New Yorker who runs a small B&B in Vermont with his wife Joanna (Mary Frann). Things operate a little differently up in ski country, as exemplified by their disparate group of friends and neighbors including Larry (William Sanderson) and his brother Darryl (Tony Papenfuss) and his other brother Darryl (John Voldstad).


Season Two highlights include Dick fighting against the advances of a celebrity author, Joanna challenging the town’s historical practice of the men and women eating separately during the town’s potluck dinners, Stephanie (Julia Duffy) getting lost in a snowstorm, Kirk (Steven Kampmann) planning to sell the Minuteman Cafe and more!


Newhart marked the return to television for multiple Emmy nominated actor and legendary comedian Bob Newhart. If you like Bob, you’ll love Newhart.

I just got Newhart Season 2 in the mail today. I have been a fan of this show since it first ran in the 80's, and I even recorded most of the episodes when they were first run on CBS. I am very happy that these are being issued on DVD after so many years.

My first reaction, though, is that the transfer to DVD is sub-par. This was evident when people were walking across the screen - the moving objects lost clarity. It may be due to how the series was originally filmed; the second season marked a shift from videotape (really evident in season 1) to film, but I have plenty of other series on DVD and I haven't ever noticed this effect before.

I also noticed a few glitches from time to time, dirt on the film, etc., but nothing I couldn't live with.

From time to time, I felt like the transfer was done by someone pointing a digital camera at a film projected on a wall or even filming a TV screen. There were a few noticeable jitters in the scenes. This could have been from the original filming though, I'll have to pull out my old VHS tapes to compare. The scenes seemed dark and duller than I remember. The contrast seemed off and even the colors seemed a bit wrong.

Given all that, I hope that the episodes are the full versions, not the syndicated versions (which were cut in time so more commercials could be added). Unfortunately my VHS tapes for this season are from the syndicated versions. At least the opening credits are the full version, not the shorter syndicated version.

I think the season was filmed before a live audience, without a laugh track. Although natural, it was at times disconcerting because some jokes just got a couple of laughs. I guess I'm too accustomed to either full fake laugh tracks or no laugh track as is common today.

I have waited years for season 2 of one of my all time favorite series to be released on dvd. FINALLY it's here and I'm rather disappointed. I see 2 episodes are syndicated episodes with missing footage. One is Kirk Ties One On. I saw the episode side by side with the one on youtube. and 4 scenes have been chopped. Including a funny piece when Larry and his brothers are signing the guestbook. Video isn't the best either. After the perfect first season set this is rather sad.. I am surprised with SHOUT video who usually is careful with their releases. With the upcoming season 3 set already planned, I'm concerned this season too will also have syndicated episodes. A 5 star for the series, but 3 for the release.

Finally, it may take a while, but every season is worth the price. Here Stephanie takes over full time and Michael comes into the picture. Much less we have the illustrious start of "Vermont Today"

I bought the season two set because my recorded from broadcast TV episodes on DVD contain a few commercials and weren't the top quality that Season One on DVD is. However, these DVD's of season two are grainy and of poorer quality than expected. I feel some of the episodes I already have are in better visual condition than these--albeit mine have commercials. I sincerely hope Bob Newhart's people (or whomever is in charge of getting the rest of the series into production) does not use this company "SHOUT" again or that they SHOUT spends more money cleaning up the film and whatever else is involved in making better DVD masters. Additionally Johanna sounds like a chipmunk in a brief exchange with George on "It Happened One Afternoon Pt. 1"

It's been a long time since Season One was released and I was becoming worried that was going to be it. What's not to like about this sitcom...funny, lovable characters, innocent, and best of all no swearing, adult subject matter, violence, special effects etc. Especially enjoyable is that all of the seasons were filmed in front of a live audience.
Forget about the other reviewers who nit-pick about the video quality, It's fine. There's a disclaimer right off the bat that tells you they did the best they could with what they had to work with. How can you fault them for that? Besides, unless you're a youngster who only knows HD, 3D, Blu-Ray etc. etc. you won't be bothered by it at all.
Season Three is coming out on April 22 and can't wait for that and all the rest. Like I said, welcome back guys, we missed you.

I am terribly disappointed with Season 2 from SHOUT/ Amazon.com. The music is weird, does not sound original at all and the transfer to DVD is second rate. I viewed these same Newhart shows years ago on DVD from a bootleg set (transferred from VHS I assume) and they seemed much better than this! Does NOT even look like a digital transfer. Sad, in this day and age of superior technology and then SHOUT COMPANY throws us this curve. Shame on them. I expected so much more from them, having purchased many DVD sets over the past few years from them! I am still surprised that SHOUT would put out such a terrible transfer set. Bob and cast deserve better!

My wife and I loved "Newhart" and watched it when we were first married. The "Newhart" of the first season was not the "Newhart" we watched, however. This was mostly due to the character of Kirk. Maybe some people thought he was funny, we just thought he was annoying. Still, there were enough other features in the show that we could just ignore Kirk. That was especially true of the second season. Watching Kirk being phased out and Stephanie worked in has made this a much more enjoyable season to watch.
