A Turning Point
10 September 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"It Happened One Afternoon" ("Newhart" two-part second season opener) has on display some of the worst elements of the first season.

The first season had very few high points other than two episodes featuring Larry, Darryl and Darryl and one with Julia Duffy playing spoiled Stephanie Vanderkellen.

In the first season the dreadful Minuiteman cafe was owned by Kirk, a habitual liar of Clintonian proportions. And the Louden's maid was an heiress named Leslie Vanderkellen who was perfect--and perfectly unfunny. It took them a year to figure out a woman who is perfect (Leslie) is not nearly so hilarious as a woman who thinks she is (Stephanie).

The show also made the change from video to film, which is fine as it made Bob Newhart look younger.

But the woes of the first season are still here. Joke lines occasionally have only one person in the audience chuckling at them. They are the lucky ones. Some obvious joke lines go by without a titter from anyone.

But the show is retooling in the right direction.
