I was surprised (but not surprised) to learn she studied with Marcel Marceau--and so much of that nonverbal prowess shows here! Ms. Newmar might be more appreciated for her work as Catwoman on the BATMAN series, but for me, she's never been better than she is on this show. Her innocence, wide-eyed wonder and the seeming lack of awareness of how dang sexy she is in the role--these are traits that make the show a joy. Yes, she's playing a robot, but no, she's not static. Take the limber kinesthesia she enacts with easy grace in "The Pool Shark" episode; focus on her in the background when Bob Cummings is in the forefront. Or try not to utter a little gasp when Ms. Newmar glides through Chopin (Yes, she's really playing it herself) in "The Beauty Contest."
Twenty-nine when she starred on the show, Ms. Newmar OWNED this show. While I'm a fan of Bob Cummings and always enjoyed "Love That Bob," and still do on DVD, Ms. Newmar is the sun around which this show revolves. I can only hope and pray the other fifteen shows have somehow survived, as Ms. Newmar has said she finally felt at peace in "Rhoda's" skin only after the thirteenth show. Boy, you wouldn't know it by her performances here. Great stuff.
And by the way: the reviewer who complained that his discs were mislabeled since they contained "My Favorite Martian" and "The Honeymooners" instead of the series--perhaps those discs never moved beyond the first ten minutes of play. Both shows are featured in this disc set as commercials for other DVDs by MPI. The *Living Doll* episodes start right after the extended clips for those contemporary programs. I, for one, felt the ads offered more bang for my buck. . . but at less than $20.00 for the whole shebang, I'd say I more than got my money's worth.
At the risk of misquoting Charles Dickens, "Please, sir. More shows, please!"
I have added a star for the very existence of this set. With the exception of the "bonus" episode, reproduced from inferior materials (but one of the funnier episodes), the surviving episodes look amazingly good for a one-season black-and-white program that has had little or no rerun time since. The modern-day interview and the Lucille Ball audio interviews are welcome bonus features. Kudos to the persistence of the people who assembled the package.
I hope the remaining episodes of the series (particularly the few without Bob Cummings, who left the show before the season ended) can be found and released in another set. Even if they cannot, it's great to finally see this show about which I remembered for years.
Rhoda is a robot developed by NASA for the space program, in hopes that she can be sent on hazardous missions instead of risking human lives. She is very sophisticated, but a bit naive about social interactions, and has a tendency to take verbal commands very literally. When her builder is reassigned to Pakistan, the task of educating her in the ways of humans falls into the lap of Bob Cummings, who is busy with his own social life.
Rhoda reads a full page of text in less than five seconds, remembers every character on the page, learns to play the piano by watching a concert on television, and looks incredible in her 1964 one piece swimsuit. The primary humor in the show involves how her literal interpretation of instruction often places Bob in awkward circumstances socially.
"My Living Doll" was never syndicated, and all episodes were believed lost until these 11 were discovered in 2012. It's truly great to see these again, and I hope that the remaining episodes will turn up as well.
