The Bob Newhart Show - Season 6, Episode 15 - Rotten Tomatoes

Son of Ex-Con Job


Episode Info

In this follow-up to the earlier episode "Ex-Con Job," Bob is reunited with the five paroled convicts whom he's counseled in prison. This time, the quintet is determined to become useful members of society by finding honest work. Taurean Blacque (of Hill Street Blues fame), Wyatt Johnson, Allen Case, Ric Mancini, and Bert Rosario reprise their roles as Tatum, Hawkins, Kopelson, Brolio, and Ortiz, respectively. Written by Emily Purdum Marshall, "Son of Ex-Con Job" was originally scheduled to air in February or March of 1978, but was moved up to January 21, due to Bob Newhart's absence from several other like-vintage episodes.
