They don't make them like they used to. This is one of TV's great comedies, anchored by Bob Newhart, and supported by an excellent cast that changed through the seasons. Season one has almost no Julia Duffy character - the ditzy, pampered maid - no Peter Scolari (the irritating yuppy) in love, and minimal Larry, Darryl and Darryl, the Marx brother like stooges who later become a major fixture on the show.

Still Tom Poston, the handyman, Kirk, the narcissistic cafe owner, and the wonderfully inept local Vermont Townsmen do a great job, and they just get better as the show develops. Truly intelligent family fare.

I really miss this one considering the current wasteland of staged "reality" shows, nasty and violent cop dramas, and smutty dysfunctional family comedies. You can sign me up for this one, and I can't wait for the other seasons.

I don't remember a television show that was as funny as The Bob Newhart Show. The staid, professional Dr. Hartley and his wife are surrounded by a parade of the wackiest neighbors, colleagues and friends that one could imagine. Even Dr. Hartley's "group" is an hysterical array of people who somehow make even those in for psychological help seem funny without making fun of their individual problems. This show is classic Newhart. It is not slapstick or in-your-face humor nor is it anything like the comedy seen on television today. Bob Newhart is subtle and timed with absolute precision. Bob's facial expression (or should I say lack of one) tells us that something funny is about to happen. You won't go wrong getting The Bob Newhart Show if you love wonderful, colorful characters, first-rate writing and everyday situations which are full of humor and wit.

Newhart was very likely the best situation comedy of the 80s and I sorely miss seeing Bob on TV. I'm one of those who has a fondness for the first couple of seasons, when the humour was at its most intelligent and subtle...not unlike Bob himself, come to think of it. This DVD release is highly anticipated though I share the pessimism of others that Fox will stick with the series. Inevitably, demand for series TV tends to drop off as additional years are released. Perhaps more distrubutors should take a cue from Time-Life, who released all seasons of Get Smart in a single package, before rolling out individual seasons. It allows true fans to collect the full set at a reasonable one-time price and more casual fans to collect only selected seasons. Much smarter marketing, in my view, than the painful sporadic (and indefinite) release of discs over a period of years.

Newhart is simply the best television show ever made. It's funny, relaxing, and something that the whole family can watch together. I will buy this dvd set on Feb 26th, and will be ready for season 2 by 9pm that night!

Fox continues to disrespect great shows such as "The Bob Newhart Show". They will treat "King of the Hill" or "The Simpsons" akin to "Gone with the Wind"...but a real quality show such as this is given shabby treatment.

The packaging is poor (two slimline cases, with double sided DVD's????), the extras are non-existent (none, nada, nyet!), and the transfers are equal to VHS quality, full of grain and poor focus.

But, of course, this show will probably only see one release, so those who appreciate quality entertainment are stuck with what they give us.

I can only hope future releases of this show (and MTM) will be treated with greater respect....but I'm not holding my breath.
