Video of the Week: One of the Best Moments in TV History

The Bob Newhart Show is one of my top 10 favorite TV shows of all time. Bob Newhart is hilarious and if he ever came to where I am for a stand up show I’d be there in a heartbeat. I’m a huge fan of dry comedy so I love his style.

So, since I’ve started watching The Bob Newhart Show again and in honor of Suzanne Pleshette who passed away earlier this year, this week’s video is the final scene from the show Newhart. Incidentally, it’s based on an idea by Bob Newhart’s real wife Virginia, and several media organizations (including TV Guide) have called the Newhart series finale one of the most memorable in TV history. If you’ve never seen this before, you’re about to find out why.

Unfortunately, Twentieth Century Fox has decided that, even while they’re not providing anything past the first season of Newhart on DVD (or anywhere, for that matter), You Tube is not allowed to host a clip of the show, so you’ll have to go to a different site to watch. It’s worth it (those of you who’ve seen it before know what I’m talking about). So head on over to Milk and Cookies and watch the final scene from Newhart.

How do I get to Amarillo?

Hey, it’s a valid question. And very pertinent to this week’s video (which is late, and I apologize).

A Bout of Cabin Fever

This week’s video is from a movie that I absolutely love and yet have still not managed to own.

It is my very favorite Muppet song, and is, if I dare say, incredibly addictive. My favorite part:

I’ve got cabin fever, I think I lost my grip.
I’d like to get my hands on whoever wrote this script.

Click play and enjoy the randomness of “Cabin Fever”.

Eighty People Live in this Apartment?

I would love to be able to embed this week’s video, but that’s sadly impossible because it uses javascript. So, please click the link and enjoy the rampant cluelessness of Mr. Leonard as he is interviewed by a census bureau worker.

There is a short advertisement before the video itself, but you can’t beat the sharpness of the picture. I’m sure most of you have seen it before, but I can’t get enough of it. You know you want to watch it.

Why Won’t You Love Me?

Dee had a fantastic idea that I’ve decided to implement: A “Video of the Week”. I love finding quirky, off-beat videos online and sharing them with friends. What better way to do this than with a blog?

For the first video of the week I have to pay homage to that man who is quite possibly the first actor I really had a crush on: David Duchovny. I even remember where I was when Dee told me the news that he had married Tea Leoni and I have to admit a small part of me died that day. I told you I was obsessed with The X-Files.

In any case, the man is still attractive as all get-out. And because I find myself obsessed once again with that ubiquitous 90’s crack The X-Files and the oh-so-scrumptious special agent man, the first official video of the week is the video to Bree Sharp’s song “David Duchovny”. Enjoy!

Sorry I couldn’t find a better quality video.
