GordHunter saidTHAT was 30 years ago??!!.....crap, I feel old.
Just wait until you hit your 50s. Fucking everything is 30 years ago.
Loved MASH. My dead Hollywood bud once took me on his bicycle (what I called his Harley) out to the filming location. I didn't know where we were going but he surprised me. It's beautiful out there. Then lunch at this nice restaurant over looking the water, I think that was in Malibu, not sure. Then we took the beach road down to Venice beach. That was a nice day. And soon enough that will have been 30 years ago too.
redsoxfan791 saidGood ending, but nothing will ever top the last scene of Newhart.
yeah, that was pretty brilliant
The first Bob Newhart show was an intelligent witty, well-written and acted ensemble show, aimed at adults and not "dumbed down" to the least common denominator of human beings, where no one person was hugely more important than the others. I did find the dentist character rather pithy, salf-abosrbed and obnoxious, but such are some people in the Real World.
Viewing it today on MeTv, it still "holds up well". I am amazed at some of the sly, sexual zingers and innuendos that the writers & actors managed to slip past the sensors of the early/mid 1970's.
The surprise ending of the second "Newhart" show, combining both series, is another example of the intelligent atmosphere of the comic genius of Bob Newhart/
