Like small town comedy on TV. Well here are two of the best. Bob Newhart plays an Inn Keeper on the hit series Newhart and has to deal with a town full of carzies. Like George the handyman and the restaurant owner next door who is a compulsive liar.
Burt Reynolds in Evening Shade is in the same position as the local high school football coach. Like dealing with his inept assistant coach who has never played football and the crazy town Dr.
Evening Shade is available for pre-order before it is released on June 24th and Newhart season one is available now.
David Vincent is driving one night and makes a wrong turn but it turns out to be a right turn for mankind. He sees a spaceship land and it is full of aliens invading the planet. Now David must convince others of the invasion and that he is not insane. You see the invaders look just like us. Also they know that he is aware of the invasion and are trying to stop them. The series comes out on DVD soon and you can pre-order it at Amazon.com. Also they have recently added an extended 60 minute version. An interview with series star Roy Thinnes and episode introductions by him. Also an episode commentary by the series creator Larry Cohen. Above is the cover art that the box was recently changed to. You can preorder it if you click on the link above. Also, Amazon.com is showing the first cover that was poorly received when the public saw it. As one person said it looked like Roy Thinnes was being chased by a giant sombrero.
