Goofs

There is a window behind the headboard of the Hartley's bed which shows a view of the city. However, if the orientation of the building's hallway is correct- apparently leading off to the left from the Hartley apartment front door, then the window should open onto it. See more »

Comfort TV
21 August 2004 | by EkittyguruSee all my reviews

The Bob Newhart Show has been my favorite comedy ever since it first aired in the 1970's. I have probably seen every episode at least 3 times and this show never fails to make me laugh. More than that, it is comfort television at its best! I always feel better after watching "Bob". When I was in high school I suffered from generalized anxiety disorder and the only time I was able to stop worrying was each weeknight at 9:00PM during reruns of "The Bob Newhart Show". This show so throughly brought me into the wacky world of Bob and Emily Hartley that for those 30 minutes I was able to forget my worries. Even now, I still find "The Bob Newhart Show" to be an excellent cure for the blues or a bad day. I'm still waiting for this best of comedies to be brought out on DVD season by season!!
