The finest ending of a series ever!
10 June 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There couldn't be a finer ending than the last episode of The Newhart Show. It was absolute brilliance to incorporate his previous sitcom. The bizarre happenings in the show situated in Vermont, only added to the absolutely convincing dream idea that he had to end the show. Besides the fact that he was a psychiatrist in the first show and he ends the second show with a dream that makes all the antics and characters of Vermont possible, he then awakens with his leading lady from the first series to validate it. Who would and who has, since that show, ever dreamed of accomplishing anything that clever?! I would expect no less from Bob Newhart!
