Trivia

When he leaves, the Peeper gives Bob a can of maple candy from Vermont, which of course was the setting for "Newhart" where Poston would play George the handyman for Dick Loudon. This fits very well into the "it was all a dream" ending of "Newhart". See more »

Funny and complex for the 70s
5 February 2015 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Found this 4th season of the show and after watching the first episode I was overall impressed. It was engaging, heartfelt and funny with some genuinely wonderful performances from the whole cast. Bob Newhart of course is at the center of things and carries that responsibility with ease. I wish I had been able to find earlier episodes and I will keep on the lookout. However if like me you are a child of the 70s I think you'll appreciate this little gem of a sit-com. Come for the nostalgia and stay for the entertainment.

Missed opportunity not calling this first episode "Barbershop" though. You'll see what I mean if you watch it. :)
