Make an appointment to see television's funniest psychologist with The Bob Newhart Show: Season Five! This sitcom classic stars the incomparable Bob Newhart as Dr. Robert Hartley, a Chicago psychologist who finds himself surrounded by some unusual and neurotic characters - on the job and at home! But with the support of his quick-witted wife, Emily (Suzanne Pleshette), Hartley can always be counted on to deliver a healthy dose of laugh therapy. An outstanding supporting cast - including Bill Daily (I Dream of Jeannie), Peter Bonerz, Jack Riley and Marcia Wallace (The Simpsons) - is also on call to assist the good doctor in every situation that Season Five's twenty-four episodes throw at him. Indisputably among the best-loved situation comedies in history (with TV Guide and Time naming it one of the greatest television shows of all time), The Bob Newhart Show is a true original from one of comedy's finest minds. Adding The Bob Newhart Show: Season Five to your collection is the only sane choice in an insane world.
Then, take twenty-two of these episodes and call us in the morning. It's time to check in for Dr. Hartley's final sessions with The Bob Newhart Show: Season Six! One of television's all-time great comedies comes to an end with this hilarious last season. Chicago psychologist Robert Hartley (Bob Newhart) continues his uphill battle to help his eccentric group of patients while maintaining balance with his personal life (filled with an equally eccentric group of friends). He and his wife Emily (Suzanne Pleshette) have moved into a new apartment - but could an even bigger move be in store for the Hartleys? An unquestioned classic that gives a whole new meaning to "screwball comedy," anchored by an unforgettable supporting cast featuring Bill Daily, Peter Bonerz, Jack Riley, and Marcia Wallace - what more could anyone ask for? Here's your prescription from Shout! Factory: complete your collection of The Bob Newhart Show today.
In 2005 and 2006, Fox Home Entertainment released DVDs for the first 4 seasons of The Bob Newhart Show
, the classic sitcom that is near and dear to so many of us! But then they stopped, and didn't bring us discs for the show's final two seasons. Passionate fans needed therapy after this decision, ranting and raving (don't deny it!) about the lack of a release for those two sets. Finally, this year, the folks at Shout! Factory picked up the license for this show, bringing out all 6 seasons at once in their late May release of The Complete Series
. However, fans who already own the first four seasons on DVD have been begging Shout! to put out individual season sets of those final two seasons.
The folks at the Factory have heard you!
On February 3rd
, Shout! Factory will put on store shelves BOTH The Bob Newhart Show - Season 5
AND The Bob Newhart Show - The Final Season
(season six) on DVD. These 3-disc sets will be priced at $24.97 SRP each, and both can be pre-ordered from Amazon.com or from the Shout! Store. Button links are below, each floating over the cover art for these long-awaited separate season sets. Both titles are closed captioned for the hearing impaired, by the way. At last, at last...your therapy session can be concluded. Here's your bill.
