Online Pick of the Week (4/30): Newhart

Another Bob Newhart related post this week for the online pick.

I’ve mentioned myself in the past that I do find that Newhart managed to really hit its stride by the second and third years of the run. And I prefer elements of the later years more; for instance, I find Stephanie Vanderkellen funnier than her cousin Leslie, who appeared at the start of the series. Also while Larry, Darryl, and Darryl did appear a couple times in the show’s freshman year, it was a good idea to expand their roles in future seasons.

However, that is not to say that the first season didn’t have its great moments too, and I think that this is one of them. Michael Harris who arrived later on is a really funny character but before him, there was Kirk Devane. The original owner of The Minuteman Café. He also wants Leslie Vanderkellen. And he’s a habitual liar. This season one episode, “This Probably Is Condemned,” is actually a favorite; definitely one of Kirk’s finest episodes in which he finds himself in a jam with the café and needs the help of Dick, Joanna, George, and Leslie.

Newhart, my online pick of the week!
