Newhart goes video
20 April 2018 | by Jimmy_the_Gent4See all my reviews

Dick has a chance to do a how to video for one of his books about plumbing.

A funny episode where Dick tries to do the video himself but is told he is too boring. He is replaced by a handsome hunk played by Alan Autry (former Green Bay Packer and later played Bubba on the TV version of In The Heat Of The Night).However he knows nothing about plumbing and makes a shambles of the set. A funny subplot has Larry and the Darryls opening an escort service, their first client is treated to a tour of a bat cave.
