I've noticed that one. The place where the squad car cuts off the gold truck is a spot they just passed several seconds earlier.
Yes, I've noticed that. Actually the gold (cold, cold, I did not say GOLD) truck passes that place three times before being stopped by Andy. Me and Laura Lee Hobbs noticed the action is filmed from three angles.
You and Laura Lee have keen vision, ever considered a career in law enforcement? But do remember, it's Mayberry, gateway to danger.
Also, in that episode, Gomer puts the gas nozzle in and it pours into the truck and all over Barney's shoes and pants and when he's out there is no evidence that it happened as his clothes are dry.
And Barney is still conscious! That much gas in a small area would be a bit rough!
Man, you guys really watch some of these episodes very close. I just watch them for their entertainment value, but I also keep in mind that it's only TV, so things will happen for the convenience of the producers. But, I like it that some of you point these differences out, so that the next time I watch the episode, I always look for these differences. It's funny to watch sometimes. It makes me believe that they did not shoot the scene the same day, but had to either shoot it over and over that it ran into another day, or that the producers or director wanted something different.
Agreed, Wilson. I enjoyed this conversation at first, but I honestly hate to pick apart my all-time favorite program. That, after doing it myself for many weeks.
Something I notice everytime I watch the ep. In the ep where Otis sues the county for $5,000. Ole Barn gets the idea to interrogate Otis and record it. The next day, Andy is playing the recording. Barney comes in. Andy plays some of the tape, hits stop, then Andy and Barney talk. When Andy turns the recorder to play, it is at a different place from when he stopped it.
