Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Ed Hulse
Although Bob Newhart's fame initially rested on his inventive stand-up routines, he mastered the sitcom form seemingly without effort. The 24 episodes of the 1973-74 season included here aired at 9:30 ET, sandwiched between the Mary Tyler Moore and Carol Burnett shows, in CBS’s unbeatable Saturday-night schedule. The character of Dr. Bob Hartley, psychotherapist, was a perfect one on which to hang a show populated with quirky characters. Like most clever comedians who star in weekly series, Bob Newhart surrounded himself with capable comic actors and allotted them a generous share of the laughs; much of the time he was just a "straight man," setting up the jokes they delivered. Standout episodes include "Emily In for Carol," which finds Bob's wife, Emily (Suzanne Pleshette), sitting in for the office receptionist, Carol (Marcia Wallace), when the latter goes on vacation. It's an arrangement everybody seems to like -- except Bob. Teri Garr has a role in this outstanding half hour. Pleshette also takes center stage in "Mister Emily Hartley," in which Bob's self-esteem takes a hit when a routine test establishes that Emily's IQ is higher than his. "Have You Met Miss Dietz?" finds Bob's fellow medical center tenant, orthodontist Jerry Robinson (Peter Bonerz) competing with his friend Howard Borden (Bill Daily) for the attentions of an attractive divorcée (guest star Mariette Hartley). And Jerry dominates "Confessions of an Orthodontist," which finds him telling Bob that he's in love with Carol. It's hard to pick the hits, however, in a season that maintains as high a batting average as this one does. Overall the writing is clever, the pace sprightly, and the performances engaging -- and there's no bathroom humor or smarmy sexual innuendos. Can you imagine that?
