The Andy Griffith Show (Season 2) DVD Review


One of the most beloved shows in television history, The Andy Griffith Show takes its viewers back to a simpler time of small town America, apple pie, and black and white television… The trademark whistling theme song is one of the most recognizable in history, and the duration of the show in syndicated reruns is unrivaled by its peers.

The Andy Griffith Show follows the exploits of the small town of Mayberry and its family-values, no nonsense sheriff Andy. Widowed, and father to a small boy named Opie (Ron Howard), Andy is joined in Mayberry by his sidekick Deputy Barney Fife, his relative and housekeeper Aunt Bee (Frances Bavier), and a host of other eccentric characters.

But the show stealer is Barney Fife (Don Knotts) who plays the role of a sometimes incompetent, kooky deputy always in over his head. The onscreen dynamic between Griffith and Knotts is truly magical. Both men would go on to heralded careers in show business with Knotts starring in numerous roles, such as Mr. Furley on Three's Company, and Griffith as the title star of Matlock. And Ron Howard (Opie) would go on to establish himself as one of Hollywood's most well-known directors…

The Andy Griffith Show (Season 2) DVD features a number of hilarious episodes including the season premiere "Opie and the Bully" in which a fellow schoolboy torments Opie, forcing Andy to give some fatherly advice… Other notable episodes include "Barney's Replacement" in which Barney comes to believe that Andy is grooming his replacement, and "Sheriff Barney" in which Barney is offered the job of sheriff by a rival township (a job he declines following Andy's offer to let Barney be Mayberry's sheriff for a day)… The season concludes with "Deputy Otis," an episode in which the town drunk Otis (because he's written letters to his family on County stationary) has led his family to believe that he's a deputy in Mayberry…
