33) Over the River and Through the Woods (The Bob Newhart Show)

The Joker On The Sofa

Earlier on the list, we already had The Bob Newhart Show, and Newhart, which ended up overlapping at the end, so…

Gonna give you a brief refresher:

Bob Newhart plays Bob Hartley, a psychiatrist. The supporting cast are his wife Emily, played by Suzanne Pleshette, his secretary, played by Marcia Wallace, and Jerry, the dentist with whom he shares office space. Most of the plots revolve around the fact that Bob and Emily try to be the sane people in an insane world, despite the fact that they aren’t actually that normal.

However, most of it is just an excuse to showcase the comedic talents. This episode also benefits from the direction of TV legend James Charles. Charles’s specialty is timing, framing complicated jokes so that they can be followed, and intense character scenes. This becomes apparent in this episode, especially the last third of the episode.
