Unfortunately, I found these Season 1 episodes (1961-1962) of The Dick Van Dyke Show to be only average, at best. I was very disappointed with this show. Its humour was only marginally amusing and entertaining.

From my perspective, "The Dick Van Dyke Show" was far too imitative of the "I Love Lucy" show from the 1950s, with Rob and Laura Petrie being Ricky and Lucy Ricardo, and then Buddy and Sally (Rob's co-workers), as well as Jerry and Millie (the Petrie's neighbours) each taking their turn, sharing the roles of Fred and Ethel Mertz.

In particular, it was actress Mary Tyler Moore, as Laura Petrie, who spoiled this show for me. Moore with all of her exasperating exasperation (Oh! Rob!) got on my nerves, big time. She was certainly no Lucille Ball.

Far better than I expected, I'd never seen THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW and always feared it would have that annoyingly Stepfordian tone. That isn't the case, though, which brought me such joy as I watched this genuinely hilarious series. I think much credit is due to the remarkable writers, especially the still-kicking legend Carl Reiner (who is known for his witty repartee with Mel Brooks). THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW fulfills its promise as a laugh riot. I highly enjoyed it and certainly recommend it to everyone.

Not as funny as I had remembered - and we didn't remember Richie as being born already in the first episode!
