Been looking for "BOB!" for the longest time. It only lasted 1 1/2 seasons, mainly due to CBS's format tinkering and day change, but season one is a riot. Bob is a greeting card artist who once was the creator of a popular superhero comic book. Now the comic is coming back and Bob goes to work for the comic company. Doesn't sound like much but in the low key style of Newhart it is hilarious. A giant bonus is the adorable Cynthia Stevenson as his daughter (she really stands out in the anniversary episode). For some reason CBS demanded some changes for season two which threw the show out of whack but if it was given more time it would have adjusted (even Betty White was added) but after moving it to a suicide Friday slot it was unceremoniously dropped mid-season. Shame on CBS but yay Paramount for releasing this. Now if we can get Par. to release "George and Leo" (Bob, Judd Hirsch and Jason Bateman) and the remaining seasons of "Newhart" it would be a perfect BOB/DVD world!
