Shows Promise of Fun Ahead
2 March 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a typical first-season "Newhart" with a good idea totally wasted. Dick and Joanna learn a woman hanged as a witch is buried in their cellar. Later seasons would have had more fun with this concept and might even have had supernatural occurrences. Here, they just fumble with the idea, slipping payola to the local minister for information (well, at least they show a church in the community). And Joanna begins to respect the woman.

However, that said, this episode is enlivened by the first appearance of Larry, Darryl and Darryl, who would be one of the show's saving graces. Or, rather, three of them.

And the show has one of the best tags ever. Be sure to stay to the very end.
