Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble
Certainly among any serious TV historian's top ten all-time sitcoms, The Dick Van Dyke Show combined a great cast, superior writing, and a conceptual framework that remains sturdy today: the star, at home and at work. Dick Van Dyke is Rob Petrie, head comedy writer on the fictional Alan Brady Show, where his compatriots are the fireball comics Morey Amsterdam and Rose Marie as Maurice "Buddy" Sorrell and Sally Rogers, respectively. The estimable Richard Deacon portrays Melvin "Mel" Cooley, Alan Brady's lackey, with a patented delivery that falls somewhere between Jeffrey Tambor's Hank Kingsley The Larry Sanders Show and former White House spokesman Ari Fleischer. Rob goes home at night to New York City's Westchester suburbs, where his wife, Laura -- Mary Tyler Moore, a gem right from the start -- and six-year-old son, Ritchie Larry Matthews provide their loving breadwinner with lots of hilarious complications. Although it would be several seasons before Van Dyke and Moore earned Emmy Awards for their creations, the series pretty much hit the ground running, making this first-season set a welcome DVD arrival indeed. The 30 first-season episodes, all included here, are:
  • "The Sick Boy and the Sitter" -- Stacy Keach guest-stars
  • "The Meershatz Pipe"
  • "Jealousy"
  • "Sally and the Lab Technician"
  • "Washington vs. the Bunny"
  • "Oh How We Met the Night That We Danced"

  • "Who Owes Who What?"
  • "Sol and the Sponsor"
  • "The Curious Thing About Women"
  • "Punch Thy Neighbor"

    Dick Van Dyke

    He is a talented guy. His shows are heartwarming and at times tongue in cheek humor. No vulgarities and a blast from the past.

    Sitcom Excellence

    I used to watch "The Dick Van Dyke Show" on TVLand, because it's about 40 years before my time. However, to my dismay, TVLand quit showing these fantastic episodes. I was thrilled to be able to see them all on DVD. The quality is excellent and it was interesting to see some of the original promos and commercials. I recently bought the next three sets too! The innoncence and fun of the show make it perfect for the whole family!

    Outstanding version of a real classic!

    I couldn't wait to pop in my DVD's Christmas Day. To my delight, the picture and sound quality is excellent. All of the episodes are full length with nothing cut out like shown on Nick or TVLand. The commentary, Emmy awards telecast snippet, and commercial spots are excellent as well. Great buy for a great show!

    One of the best classic television shows like you've never seen it!

    I cannot wait to purchase my set of The Dick Van Dyke Show Season 1 & 2. This is the royalty of classic television shows, and I am glad to hear it is finally out on DVD to coincide with THE ALAN BRADY SHOW on TVLand and the announcement of the Reunion at the TVLand Awards. The show was so brilliantly written, directed, acted by some of the best in the business. It was a truly sophisticated comedy with a leading couple that was known at the time as ''the Jack and Jackie of television''. In all 158 episodes there is at least one seen with knock you off your chair hilarity. Great show!
