Today in my Radio/TV Arts class we watched The Dick Van Dyke Show from September 15, 1965. This was the premiere episode from its 5th, and ultimately (by their own choosing) its last season.
If you haven't seen the show before it is excellent. And even better, it is still excellent some 50-plus years later. But would a group of 14 to 16 year old students find it funny?
The answer is yes, yes they did. They laughed out loud. They truly enjoyed it, and for me, that was more entertaining to watch then the episode (although in fairness, I've seen the episode a number of times).
In case you haven't seen what TV Guide called the 8th best TV episode of all time, give it a watch below. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
