Considered to be one of television’s classics, “The Dick Van Dyke Show” centers on the personal and professional lives Robert Petrie, a writer on the fictional Alan Brady Show. He’s happily married to former dancer Laura, and they have a young son, Ritchie. The plots generally revolve around problems at work — where Rob gets into various comedic jams with fellow writers Buddy Sorrell, Sally Rogers and producer Mel Cooley — or at home.

My Rating: 4 out of 5 stars! 

IMDB Rating: 8.4 out of 10 stars!

Rotten Tomatoes Rating: no rating

The classics are classic for a reason, they stand the test of time. In many ways The Dick van Dyke Show does, it’s still very funny, witty and entertaining. Viewers are given the chance to watch a comedy show writer write a show. We see how they put everything together over a week, and the shenanigans they find themselves in.

Of course by today’s standards the show is far more family oriented, it’s relaxed. It is easy going and portrays the family values of it’s times, the late 1960s. Dick Van Dyke is truly wonderful to watch, his comedy and physical acting is a gem to watch. The show runs for 5 seasons, and its easy to put the show on while you work or if you want to sit back and unwind after a hard day.
