We could do some kind of “five least favorite episodes” polling. If there’s enough interest, I’d be willing to start it. Each voter could send their five to my email, and I could tally and post the results. It would probably be best to do black & whites only.
Bernie, "Barn" that would be an interesting poll. I'd be willing to compile a list of 5.
Why not just do it here so everyone can see the results? I think more people will participate that way.
Well, I was thinking in terms of sort of a secret ballot, but I don’t care.
Secret ballot?? Everyone look out for Bernie. Seems he could be a CIA agent. Six bullets in his gun, none in his pocket.
I just think it would be more interesting if the list was accumulated, totaled and presented. I’d be happy to send my five “worst” to someone. No big deal, in any case.
Well, I've gone through the first five seasons and identified episodes from each season that are not my favorites. My list contains 12 episodes. I will have to narrow it down. Maybe we should do it by season.
Well now, I find the very early 'sodes irritating where Andy talks in a drawl.
Here is my list of least favorite episodes by season. The “stared” episodes are the episodes from that season that are hard for me to watch.
Season one The New Housekeeper
*Ellie Saves a Female
Season Two Opie and the Bully
The Pickle Story
Season three *Floyd the Gay Deceiver
Season four *Opie the Birdman
Season five Andy and Helen have their day
The luck of Newton Monroe
*Banjo Playing Deputy
Note that some of these listed are the favorites of some. There is quite a bit of variety in tags due to the many different writers, the rapidly changing culture, and the general evolution of characters. You could almost classify it as 3 different shows, early Andy, the mid-series b/w era, and the counter-culture done Mayberry style.
I will just say I loved the show, start to finish :)
I learn something new everyday....There are episodes after season five????
Funny - but you might not know it to watch reruns these days. Networks that show the color episodes are as scarce as hen's teeth!
Every now and then, I pull up a color episode on Netflix...but it's not very often. Something about seeing those green walls in the courthouse turns me off. Seems like a whole different world.
