I have finished the first season of Newhart. A little research reveals the common opinion that the series did not really find its voice until the third season, so I'll wait and see.

So far Newhart himself is the best thing in what is a fairly typical sitcom. The worst thing is the character of Kirk Devane, whose obsession with the rich girl/hotel maid is more creepy than funny. The weirdness level only jumps up with two appearances by the genuinely bizarre Larry, Darryl, and Darryl.

Odd bit of non sequitur dialogue that comes out of nowhere in one episode.

Travel agent (apropos of nothing): Do you have a cat?
Newhart: No.
Travel agent: Are you sure?

This has nothing to do with anything else and stands out as a strange bit of surrealism.
