  2. Andy Griffith was the man.

    The Andy Griffith show was classic, quality material loaded with
    many life lessons (remember Aunt Bee's pickles? ...or Opie's
    decision to consider state school so his dad could afford it).
    And it didn't portray men to be coarse, bungling idiots whose
    #1 priority was sex as virtually every show does today. We
    need more shows like that now.

    It is a much sadder world today. Rest in peace, Sheriff Taylor.
  4. Another good guy has left us.

    He seemed to be a genuine good person; I don't remember any kind of scandals with Andy.

    He made you want to move down South with the way he portrayed his hospitable personality.

    Another guy I'll be very sad to see go is Ernest Borgnine.

    R.I.P. Andy.

    We re-watched a number of his shows a couple years ago. They have held up very well over time--unlike most shows of that era. May he rest in peace.

    :( RIP, Andy. I watched the show so often as a kid.

    Well stated, Mike, I totally agree.

    I love watching the Andy Griffith show with my wife. She gets really worked up and starts yelling at the TV when Andy covers for Barney. She thinks Andy is really Co. She yells "Man, I can't believe it, he's doing it again. Just tell him the truth, he's never going to learn if you don't tell him the truth."
    I like the black and white shows with Barney and Gomer the best. I love the episode where the goat ate some dynamite. Or the "Here at the Rock" episode. Typical Barney goofiness "Now here at the Rock we have two rules. Memorize them until you can say them in your sleep. Rule number one: obey all rules. Rule number two: no writing on the walls. "
