Disclaimer: Yeah I watch too much TV.
I’ve been watching Andy Griffith, (it comes on in the early morning here) and they are playing the episodes with Warren. Warren was the deputy that replaced Barney Fife.
Now OK he isn’t nearly as good as Barney, but I think people dislike the character because they liked Barney so much. I don’t think the Warren character is so bad, I think he is just bad because people compare him to Barney.
I actually thought the character was fine, but I have a feeling I’m going to be in a tiny minority on this one
