Feels like Stephanie and Michael have been dating for a decade and three quarters.

There haven't been any scenes in the inn's kitchen for, what, two seasons now? I liked the kitchen, back when it existed.

And, no, I'm still not 100% reconciled to Kirk and Cindy's exit. Maybe 73.2% so far?

But in spite of my nitpickiness, I'm liking this show--and flying through the seasons much faster than I thought I would.

Good comedy writing, good comedy acting. Especially how Mr. Newhart plays off the bizarre actions of the other characters, setting up a perfect situation for a laugh moment. Newhart is wise to channel the best laughs to the other characters, and act as a sort of moderator of the action, to which he excels. Entertaining. My two favorite episodes are "Larry's Dead, Long Live Larry", where Larry inadvertently becomes deeply indebted to Dick and wants desperately to repay the favor, but Dick wants none of it. And "Stephanie Nightingale" where, against her wishes, she is forced to care for an Inn full of very sick guests and staff. The only downside to this set is that Julia Duffy (who plays Stephanie) is obviously pregnant, but the Stefanie character isn't, restricting the clothing and angle of the shots available when she is in the scene. This injects some restrictions on Ms. Duffy's ability to serve up her usual comical "Me Me Everybody Look At Me!!" rhetoric. Still, overall, for the great writing and acting, and just the laughs, recommended.
