When I was a kid, the old man turned on reruns of the Andy Griffith show. I am now about the age that he was then, and I have been hooked on the TV Land reruns.
I know, it’s not realistic, but damn if it can’t relax you and make you wish for simpler times. However, a few episodes have bothered me when it just didn’t seem like Andy would act that way.
Example #1. A swindling traveling salesman sells Aunt Bee and the Church Women’s Group an elixer that promises to cure all ills. Turns out that it is just plain booze, but instead of breaking the news easily, Andy puts the whole group in jail.
Example #2. A businessman from another town is disappointed that his car can’t get fixed on Sunday. Instead of waiting, he steals Gomer’s truck. Andy drops all charges because he knew that he was in a hurry. Come on, Ang’, you can be lenient, but vehicle theft?
Any other ones, or thoughts on the show?
