Another show I watched pretty much faithfully as a child, which I now question why. Didn't find it as funny this go-around.
Bob Newhart's acting was subpar. Or maybe I just found his character unlikeable after all these years.
Why in the hell was Emily (Suzanne Pleshette) married to Bob? He always had this superiority complex. Also came across as having a permanent stick up his ass.
Love the theme song. One of my top 10 faves.
Would have been a very happy camper living in both apartments but preferred the one they occupied the first 5 seasons.
Didn't care for most of their furniture, except for their bookshelves and wall units.
Jerry (the dentist) was a weak character and got probably the worst lines of the show.
Howard Borden (next door neighbor) on the other hand, was a really funny character. Well played by Bill Daily. Knew how to play dumb/aloof perfectly. I aspire to be like him.
When I was young I had a thing for Suzanne Pleshette/Emily. Loved her voice. Now? I realize it was a serious smoker's voice going on which is soooo not attractive or sexy. An almost Eillen Heckart quality to it. IMDB'd to see how she died. Surprise, surprise: Respiratory failure as a result of lung cancer. Ugh. Still loved the character of Emily, though.
That's all I have... on to the last season of The Mary Tyler Moore Show
